As I am sure I have mentioned before I love surf and skate culture, so when I came across Stevie Gee’s work I instantly fell in love. I love his illustrations, the colors and the use of materials like a surfboard fin or skate deck. I especially love the first painting of all the surfers; I need that in my place. This makes me want to take up surfing again!

ARTIST CRUSH: MAPLEXO

I love anything involving skateboarding. I have been thinking about creating a piece of skateboard art above my bed. Thanks to my friend Ben, he introduced me to this rad company called MapleXO.  They create beautiful jewelry, iphone cases (I need one), and special one of kind pieces all out of recycled skateboard decks. Since I am particle to stripes I immediately gravitated towards these pieces above.

They also have an instagram page that showcases even more amazing pieces and the stores behind them. I am officially a fan!

FOODIE TUESDAY: PIZZANISTA!

Since I work so close to downtown LA I am able to tryout some new restaurants. About a month ago a new pizza joint called Pizzanista opened and I had to try it. One of the reasons why I was intrigued by this place was because the owner is a legendary skater Salman Agah (I do have a love for skateboarders). The pizza is really good, I especially love the white pizza. It is a small spot with an open window bar where you can sit and watch the cars drive by while eating a yummy slice. I really think pizza is making a comeback! FYI every Tuesday is $2 slices all day, it is a must!
