Beers and Paint, Making Friends at Bronx Brewery

When you’re kid, making friends is easy. You say something stupid, push someone on the swing, ask to play tag and next thing you know you guys are best friends. As an adult, meeting new people usually involved alcohol.

Isn’t life funny?

Chris and I wanted to get a few beers in, we picked up the game of Battleship and I got my ass handed to me twice, I finally made a comeback on our third try and I was hype!

When were playing, we started talking to some guys and next thing you know we’re all bonding over art. Old school graff writers at that. We mention how we just came back from Paris and one of them starts asking if I got to do any painting out there, something I really wanted to do, and didn’t. Tattoos came in to question next and it just reminded me that I didn’t get to do that either.
His next stop is Cuba, and I started smiling, because that’s all I seem to talk about lately. Cuba is next on my destination-wanderlust list. I have so many other places I want to visit, but right now Cuba seems to be it, at least for this year. I really want to visit before they start modernizing everything. I want that old school feel.

We were invited to their art studio and brought a case of beer along with us. The dj had the turn tables playing some freestyle and the dog Dexter was loving all the attention.

Chris ended up buying a cool Al Capone piece that was drawn on a subway map, a perfect piece to match another piece he bought last year painted by Soel.

Unexpected nights are the best, and meeting new people who share your same interest was just the cherry on top.signature

New Artwork: Misha Mini You

New Artwork :

Misha Mini You

I made this little Mini you for the best friend’s blog page for Christmas. A little something something to make her front page more visual. Since we all know she’s a photographer who’s slowly re directing herself to film, she requested a Director’s slate instead of the original gold frame I had drawn out for her. Which meant back to the drawing board once I was already done.

I also added the three loves of her life, T.O. , Munchkin & Frank, her dogs… all which have different personalities of their own might I add.

She loved it, and I couldn’t be happier.

Check out her instagram  and if you want your own feel free to email me with the subject as Mini You, read all you need to know about having your own HERE.antic films home page

Movie Targetted and Munch

16040bae76a752b0996dfdfc8bab12f29 2I spent my lazy Sunday waking up early to meet up with Misha.

She received the greatest news and opportunity as the wonderful photographer that she is, to capture images of amazing villagers and do some life changing work.  She’ll be working with a non- profit organization called The Batey Rehab Project which aids in impoverished Batey communities.

Aaaaaand guess what?! It’s in the Dominican Republic! Since she leaves on Friday, it’s time to start packing.
We headed to Target, Marshall’s, Costco and Burlington’s to get some much needed supplies. Everything from travel sized toiletries, sunblock and shorts. And knowing everything is on sale since we’re in winter now, made everything so much sweeter. Everyone knows I love a good sale. 3 After all that walking around, I was exhausted! When we finally got to her mother’s place (not even her place) we were convinced that we were going to sit for a few minutes and then head over to her apartment to start packing, and so I can pick up an extra set of keys (so I can walk her babies, ehrrr I mean dogs)
Ha! To that plan.
I said Ha!
We ended up getting so cozy on the couch even her red nose pit Munchkin jumped in for some cuddling while we watched Christmas movies. (Yes, I know, already!) 4I’m so proud of my Mish and I hope everything goes oh so smooth, and she kills it over there.

I can’t wait to see what new adventures she has.

I’m gonna miss you so much, see you in December!

♥ you,
