This was originally going to be an art post, but then I thought better of it. Why try to compete with the work of pro photographers? This past weekend I was covering an event for my day job as a newspaper editor/reporter and that event was the Fall 2010 NYC Zombie Crawl in Manhattan. Basically […]

So it looks like a reality show inspired by “The Jersey Shore,” called “Brighton Beach” has been cast, picked up and will probably be filmed soon. For those unfamiliar with Brighton Beach, it’s a predominantly Russian neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York. Having grown up there, I can safely compare it to the restaurant chain Hooters. […]

Okay, I’m probably the last person to figure this out, but the fashion photography blog I raved about in an earlier post, Jak & Jil, is the work of photog Tommy Ton. (I didn’t know who to credit earlier.) Anyway here’s another drawing I did based on one of the beautiful photos they’ve posted. The model is […]

Okay, it’s official: Karen Elson has earned the title of style muse. Why exactly is hard to pin down, but there’s something bizarrely cute about an English supermodel turned rockstar wife turned morbid Americana blues singer.

Well blogs have been around for so long now, it’s not surprising everyone has them, even the illiterate. Take for example, the few employees who take turns publishing posts on the official Courtney Love site, What Courtney Wore Today. From what I’ve read in an article about it on the New York Post, it was […]

If you’re not already a reader I can’t recommend the fashion photography blog, Jak & Jil enough. The photog (or photogs, no one’s credited!) often stakes out fashion shows, taking mainly unposed for photos of industry people milling around on the streets nearby. The result feels glamorous but still real and I almost always end up […]

Why drop three thousand bucks when you can make much more of a statement with this “Chanel” bag! It just goes to show you at the end of the day, so much about style is just attitude. Thanks again, doll, for letting a total stranger take your picture for a blog you’ve never heard of!

In New York City, the heat hit record highs throughout the month of July and if you’re sensitive to extreme heat, going out for any length of time has meant requiring some planning ahead. For some this just means staking out the shady spots and places where the AC is guaranteed to be on full […]
