I often praise street art, but Judith Supine, an artist from Brooklyn, NY has officially set the curve. I am absolutely loving the multi-layered, heavily graffitied, distorted figures in psychedelic neon hues. They are bold, a little scary, but still quite beautiful (unless of course you hate bleeding eyes :).
It's been ages since we revisited the beauty that is Design Sponge's Sneak Peek (previous posts: part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, and part 5) so picking up where we left off let's celebrate Part 6. All images link to the original post, and for those who just want to enjoy the fruit of my labor - you're very welcome :)
Even though the novelty has totally worn off (remember HOW exciting it was in the beginning) I am still grateful that Facebook continues to put me in touch with old friends. Other than being able to stalk their profiles (let's be honest) it's always refreshing to discover the quality of one's work, and be reminded why you liked them in the first place.
Old Friend #1: Charles McLeod, author of American Weather and Natural Treasures (because why write one book when you can write two :) is Series Editor for a new, annual anthology called The California Prose Directory: New Writing from The Golden State. The anthology is particularly interested in work showcasing some aspect
of life in The Golden State, and Californians living outside the state (and
especially those writing about California) are encouraged to submit. Charles has received a number of submissions, but is still on the hunt for innovative nonfiction.
How Old Friend #1 can be your NEW Friend #1: Are you a creative, artist, designer type who loves writing about what inspires or influences you? Do you want to be published with other unique California narratives? If you have a piece that you think would be appropriate to submit, reach out to Charles and his team here :). To learn more about Outpost19 (the publisher) feel free ot say hello, follow them on Twitter, or make them your newest friend (stalking obviously encouraged :).

The November issue of Lonny Managzine hit virtual newsstands over the weekend (more here if you are not familiar) and it's filled with tons of shopping goodies and interior love. What I look forward to most about Lonny are the product links, which transform the magazine layout into an actual shopping experience (filled with lots of things I can't afford :). Inspiring, cohesive, and pretty - thank you Lonny for setting the bar :)
