Thanks to everyone that came out to the Beautiful/Decay & Insight 51 sample sale on Friday and Saturday. Both days were filled with eager shoppers who were anxious to get a good deal and hang with us for two sun drenched california days. Here are some highlights …
Everyone loves a good sample sale where one can find those rare one off samples that you can’t get in stores. Apparently Cousin It got wind of it and came through to find the perfect surfin safari outfit.
This showreel is made of a selection of projects done by freelance designer Giovanni Bucci over the last few years.

After experimenting and researching how audio can influence and inspire video and viceversa, they have worked out a personal formula. Instead of working audio and video separately, as it is common practice in the media industry, every draft of the video editing was followed by an audio adjustment in a way that both authors could get influenced by the work of the other, until they felt that an harmonious final edit was achieved.
While in Dubai & Sharjah I had the chance to see some amazing arabic and persian calligraphy. If you’ve ever been into typography or graffiti you will surely walk away from this region with a renewed appreciation for the amazing calligraphy you find around every corner.
One of my favorite pastimes while in Dubai & Sharjah is to photograph all the photos and paintings of the various Sheikhs in every single building that you enter. They all vary in scale, medium, and content but all are fascinating. I think we should take this practice up in the states, plastering Obama’s photos and paintings behind every single business desk.
Art Dubai Opens today but I had a chance to sneak in yesterday and take some shots before the masses stormed the fair. As a result I don’t have the names of all the artists/galleries but there’s still some good eye candy.
