my friend lauren randolph took this really fantastic picture of me a few weeks ago.
Lauren makes amazing work, so it was exciting to get in front of her camera. She’s one of my favorite photographers in Los Angeles. Her work is so full of charisma and attention to detail. I can’t get enough of it. Go to her website and check out her work. Here’s a sample of what you’re in store for:
Here’s a portrait I took of Dr. Nakamats, the world’s most prolific inventor. There was an amazing documentary made about him a few years back. You should really check it out.
He is one of the most positive men I’ve ever met in my life.
I’m teaming up with my friends at Reform School to do a series of limited run screen prints based on my canvas banners. I’m excited because it will make my banners a little more affordable for everyone to buy, but also because it’s Reform School’s first foray into wholesale retailing. You won’t have to travel to Silverlake to buy one! Or log onto the internet! You could buy one in your own city! Probably!
This one says “I BELIEVE IN EVERYTHING.”
This is a still from a clip I shot for my 2011 director’s reel. I had it in my head that what my reel really needed was a hosted segment where people could get to know me. Turns out, probably not the case.
But, all the same, look at those colors!
sorry for the string of posts that have just been screen grabs of websites that have written about me and adi. but it’s fun. check out Darkness on urban outfitter’s blog!
The Motivational PSAs Adi and I made have been making their rounds on the internet! We got a really neat write up in Beautiful/Decay and also LA I’m Yours and Art Hound. If you haven’t checked them out yet, make sure you watch Loops and Darkness here on our vimeo page.
And show them to all of your friends! You probably have thousands of them!
The JIMMYnADI “Beneath the Pavement, Beach” show got a really cool write up in the wonderful LA I’m Yours blog. Apparently it came out earlier in September. No one ever tells me anything. Check it out!
Adi and I started a new series of motivational public service announcements. The goal is to promote positivity and give people who are feeling slightly in the dumps a boost of energy. There’s a million positive things to do with life, and there’s no reason to let the blues or a rut cloud that.
Here are the first two PSAs: Loops and Darkness
I posted my new director’s reel onto the internet this morning. I’m so happy it’s up and out and existing. I’m excited about life and about work. I am happy and thankful I live in Los Angeles with so many talented friends and collaborators. Everything’s the best.
I hope this reel finds you having the best day of your life.
