Bic Pen illusions

Wow, talk about patience! Paris-based artist, Jonathan Bréchignac, has created jaw-dropping intricate illustrations of carpets with highly-detailed patterns using Bic pens. The art is created in the same size as Muslim prayer rugs and can take him as long as eight months to create with the first one taking almost a year and a half! I’m so use to creating art for clients on strict deadlines that having the time to really create art is a luxury. Wow wow wow.

Arctic Monkeys

Soooooo excited their latest album is finally available! So I have a funny story…last month I saw the National play at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery (epic show!) and on my way to the cemetery I passed by an alley way. I noticed four very well dressed men doing a photoshoot and I even thought to myself, “hmm, trying hard to look like Arctic Monkeys aren’t we?” I took a second glance and realized IT WAS THEM! I was beyond giddy and stood there waiting for them to turn around (their backs were facing me). Finally Nick O’Malley turned around and noticed me to which I yelled out like a total groupie, “I luuuuuv you guys!!! You are one of my faves, can I pleassssssssssssse take a picture with you???” My sister who was with me literally wanted to die, lol. Nick waved to me and pointed at their photographer as in, “we are in a middle of a shoot, sorry” and then proceeded to ask Alex for permission. Now as much as I adore this band I have heard Alex can be a bit of a jerk so for fear of rejection I turned around and waved them goodbye.

My sister was able to snap a few blurry pics for me in the midst of all this:

Our Deal//Best Coast

I once read a quote from Frank Ocean that said, “When you’re happy, you enjoy the music. But, when you’re sad, you understand the lyrics.”

Ugh, so true…

*2010, Crazy for You

When you leave me
The bed is empty
And I feel crazy
‘Cause I didn’t say anything
I wish you would tell me
How you really feel
But you’ll never tell me
‘Cause that’s not our deal

When you leave me
You take away everything
You take all my money
You take all my weed
I wish you would tell me
How you really feel
But you’ll never tell me
‘Cause that’s not our deal

I wish you would tell me
How you really feel
But you’ll never tell me
‘Cause that’s not our deal

That’s not your deal
That’s not my deal
That’s not your deal
That’s not my deal
That’s not your deal
That’s not my deal
That’s not your deal
That’s not my deal
That’s not your deal
That’s not my deal
That’s not your deal
That’s not my deal

Desert fun

I’ve been meaning to post these pics taken last month from my friend’s bachelorette party. I had such a great time hanging with these girls in Joshua Tree. I would give anything to be there in that rad house and rad pool right now!

Printps. Can you tell how much I luv that pretzel floaty? I bought mine from UO but it’s sadly sold out. I highly recommend buying it next summer if it comes back on sale.
