RICHIE CUNNING SHOW 11.11.11

Good friends and craft photographers—Trevor Traynor and Amanda Lopez—captured one of the most impressionable shows I have ever had the pleasure of rocking. Performing alongside my ace Richie Cunning and luminous Oakland artist Pep Love from Hieroglyphics, I’m certain we put heads to bed. Not sure that the Elbo Room was prepared for what hit them. If you were there, you know what I’m saying. If not, here’s some visual stimuli to prolong your regret. C’est tout….

Love you. Mean it.

deeFind Fall / Winter 2011 Look Book

They will escalate your blood pressure. They will raise your voice an octave. Make you blush, take your breath away, and convert you into a spectacle of feminine ferocity.  Designed by the Einstein of Dierdre Wallace, deeFind shoes are truly one of a kind, combining the sensibilities of architecture, a head nod to the classically-modern platform sole, and drop-dead femininity. The website just launched last Monday and has already been sought after with a mighty thirst. deeFind will hit the runway this Sunday at the 2011 San Francisco Fashion Week alongside clothing designer Jakee Princeau. Plus, Shoes.tv inquired about deeFind for a front-page feature and video on their website, which will be airing later on this year. The deeFind Fall / Winter 2011 look book: designed by yours truly—aka—Sans Hype. My brother blud and photographer—Leo Docuyanan—shot the photos of this year’s Fall / Winter line of deeFind heels alongside my lovely friend and beast-y make up artist—Jenni Tay—on the face paint. Very proud to be part of such a fetching brand. Future’s bright. Better arm Dierdre & her team with stunners.

Love you. Mean it.

Okay, okay, okay. So I’ve been slipping on my blog game—but brutally—I’ve been busier than the President with matronly duties, music projects, next album, design career, and interviews, similar to this episode of Frame of Mind Vol. 1 | Part 4, featuring my good friend and superior lens—Amanda Lopez—facilitated and directed by my other good friend and talented photographer—John Coyne. This visually stunning document exhibits both artist’s unique vista points on life and drop-dead creativity. Affirmative: S’pretty lovely. Last Sunday, I had the distinct privilege of being shot in the same series for Vol. 2, at the Alamany Farmers Market near Bernal Heights. Keep your eyes peeled for that release in the future. In between times, press play below. You’ll become a believer.

Love you. Mean it.
