Inspiration Part Deux..

The Glamorous Life...

If I could sum up how I dream my life would one day (one day soon) look like, this editoral sums it up pretty nicely...shot by Terry Richardson for French Vogue in May 2007.

Inspiration... (NSFW..NUDITY)

I've always cut out pics from magazines that inspire me in some way. Whether its makeup, hair, outfits, or the picture concept itself. I usually file them in binders based on each category and refer to them when I need some inspiration. Usually before a night out I'll flip open the hair and makeup binder and pick a look that goes with my outfit or pick an outfit from the style folder that helps me come up with what to wear. I'm super organized and anal (clearly.) Now I do it with online pics and seperate them into folders, so I thought it would be fun to share various pics I find at any given time that inspire me in some way, so I'll just title these posts simply, "Inspiration". Maybe it will give you some as well. This is the initial post so there are more pics than there probably will be normally, but I had to make up for lost time...

"Art is Spirituality in Drag"

More of my momma's paintings..these are some newer pieces that I took the liberty of stealing for my bedroom!

This one below is my current fav. It litterally makes me happy when I look at it. I love it so much!

I get it from my mama...

My dope-ness that is! I wasn't lucky enough to get her level of beauty and amazing cheekbones. (or cooking skills.)
My mom is an AAAAA-MAAAAZING artist. I swear sometimes I think she should have just been selfish and pursued her dreams of being a famous artist and left my poor love stricken father heartbroken so he'd be forced to marry some sub-par woman. But instead, she chose to have my brother and me and be the best Mommy in the whole wide world. (I guess it worked out for me). But I still have hope that her big break is coming. In fact, as soon as I have some spare time I am going to become her agent and get her the recognition she deserves.

Below are some of her older pieces, these are all in my apartment, she's currently in a very fashion inspired phase (she's gone through all kinds of different periods and phases, but this is by far my fav. and I really believe her true calling). She is working on some really amazing pieces, and I will have more pics soon! Until then, enjoy these...I'll make this a regular post and update all her new work. So if any gallery owners or art dealers/collectors are reading, contact me and we'll make some magic happen! ;)

And here she is in all her muse.
