Brandon Bird

Brandon Bird is an artist from Sacramento, CA. He studied at the University of California, Santa Cruz, now living in LA.
Here's some advice he has for those of you aspiring artists! From his site:
Don't move to an expensive city after you graduate and then stop making art because you suddenly need five jobs just to stay alive. Beyond that, find a comfortable physical & mental working environment and a solid peer group. Don't blindly follow the advice of galleries, because most of the time they don't know what they're doing any more than you do (sorry, gallery owners!). Also, it will take time (as in, years) to figure out your audience and the economics of things (For example, do you sell lots of inexpensive things, or giant paintings for thousands of dollars?). And what you think is going to be your big break probably isn't. For me, it's been a lot of little things eventually adding up. 

The painting of David Shwimmer makes me LOL!!

Charlotte Rouge

I am loving the new Spring/Summer '11 campaign for Charlotte Rouge! 

From TrendHunter:
Model Meggie is the face of the Charlotte Rouge Spring/Summer 2011 campaign photographed by Kontraktewicz Photography. This line is photographer Natalia Golebiowska’s debut as a designer, and it’s filled with feminine detailing. A cross-shaped cutout makes a nude dress suddenly scandalous, while a sheer black dress has a diaphanous train that’s sent aloft with the slightest breeze.   

Meet Charlotte Rouge - 'Deliverance SS11' official clip from Charlotte Rouge on Vimeo.

It's a great video and makes me seriously want to move to the city!

"I'm a dreamer, painter, tea-drinker, self-taught San Franciscan artist. I was born and raised in a small beach town in Southern California where I first started drawing with soy sauce on napkins but have since upgraded to paper and paint. I now reside in San Francisco's sunny Mission District where I love playing Scrabble in the park, cuddling with my kitten & drinking peppermint tea."
