We hit the Skam Artist Holiday party where they rented out Dave & Busters for a night of arcades and booze. The night was so good in fact that we pretty much forgot about the camera and mostly took advantage of the open bar and free games. It was awesome seeing so many friends and familiar faces having a great time in a relaxed environment. Lets face it, it’s really rare in Hollywood to see an abundance of people letting their personas down. We wish we did a better job at documenting it but sometimes you just need to be apart of the moment rather than record it.
This collaboration between Saint Laurent® and Polaroid® is one of those things that is so simple, so basic and with hardly any appropriation by SL but totally inspires me to make new products. Some of the best shit ever made has been concocted simply but enhancing or applying a hint of your own touch, which in turn dramatically transforms the foundation of the piece. I mean, they literally just stamped the leather and created packaging and film. But look how sexy it is. Genius! Now, if someone could be so kind to acquire one for me in Paris I would be indebted to you forever. Thanks!

It’s officially camo season, and I’m not mad at that.

We’ll be rolling out our Steezy® Studios ‘18 posters next month. Be on the lookout for them throughout Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica.
We have a huge love affair with Polaroid® and used to spend tons of money sourcing expired cartridges of 600 film. The camera gods must have listened to all of our prayers for instant gratification because the company has officially resurrected as Polaroid® Originals and is even offering a brand new upgraded version of their infamous One-step camera. The One-Step 2 offers a sleek new design and features a built-in flash which was painstakingly absent in the prior model. Long gone are the days of trying to stock up on film at inflated prices or paying absurd amounts of money on the cameras themselves. Hopefully this time the company (even though they’re now owned by Impossible®) will continue to produce products for todays culture while still implanting the same formula that made them timeless. We’re literally eagerly twiddling our shooter fingers waiting for our cameras to come. We’ll be sure to give you a comprehensive review upon their arrival.

Tayna stopped by for a quick test shoot. Amazing energy and full of laughter!
After watching the new Saint Laurent video featuring Kate Moss, there’s only one thing to be said, she’s still got it! You can watch it here.
I’m an avid believer in surrounding yourself with those that add positivity, prosperity and most importantly, creativity to your life. From a young age my mother preached that old saying, “you are who you hang out with”. Wiser words have never been spoken when it comes to living in Hollywood. It’s so easy to get consumed by the evils that dwell in the lights that we begin to become stagnant. And that my friends, is a very easy self-inflicted wound that us creatives walk into. Which brings me to this night at the Beverly Hills Hotel. It wasn’t a rager. There wasn’t bottle service tables or a queue outside. It was on a word of mouth basis amongst young and old artists, socialites and creatives that just knew where to be. I can’t express to you enough how important these types of encounters are, especially if you’re trying to claw your way into the inner circle of the movers and shakers that have been playing in the art arena for years. This was the first time I met a lot of these people (I’m sure you know who they are, if you don’t, research) but there was one encounter that stood out to me. As we sipped the last drink of our champagne and said goodbye to everyone, I turned to walk away as Dylan Rieder was walking in with Sky Ferreira. We only spoke briefly but that dudes energy was so contagious and inspiring that it truly changed me forever. So what’s my point? Spend time and interact with those who will only elevate your viewpoint and mindset on whatever it is that you’re trying to achieve. There’s no love in the club, only meaningless encounters and broken facades. If you’re the hardest working guy or girl in your circle, get the fuck out and find a new one that will push you to the next level. It’s always fun to party, but the true measure of ones success should be calculated by a ton of small accomplishments that you achieve in a small window of time. Succeed daily!
