Work by Sylvia Ji



Black Widow

I notice that I really like artist that show a hint of other greats like Gustav Klimt and Mucha. The bad thing is that I can only order print and not anything on canvas, I wish I could because I would to have some work made by her.

Artist info:
Sylvia Ji was born in 1982 in San Francisco to artistic parents. Ji’s interest in art was implanted at a very young age when she would look through her mother’s sketchbooks and watch her father paint. In her art, she explores themes of beauty, sexual provocation, and social notions of femininity juxtaposed against the dystopian reality of modern cities to create highly charged paintings of women. Some of her paintings are symbolic reflections of herself, portraits of people she knows or just nameless faces set in a landscape of fleeting and decaying beauty. She graduated with distinction from the Academy of Art University of San Francisco with a Bachelors in illustration and already had her first ambitious and successful solo show while still in her last year of school. Since then she has been in high demand, keeping continuously engaged in an onslought of numerous shows on the West Coast.

Buy her work here or take a look at her website here.

Derek Trucks speaks music

One of my all time favorite musicians out there. I saw the Derek Trucks Band live this year in Londen England. Enjoy this video!


I came across this site many times before without writing about it. It's a cool idea that could use more attention and that's why I'm writing about it. Not that I think it's actually going to help and them more sales but it's nice to know that there are people out there that take a chance and try to do something different.

T-Post is a subscription t-shirt service where, if subscribed, you'll receive a t-shirt every six weeks. T-Post designs a t-shirt based on a news item, not so much what you already have heard from the traditional news stream but more of the unusual.

The thing is that I think this would also work for brands. In a way to expand there consumer base. I think that brands like Vans, Dickies, Element or maybe even bands and such could also get into this. The only problem is how do you make it payable for the consumer. T-Post charges 26 Euros for every t-shirt they send. On the other hand it some good advertising for your company or band.

Go check out T-Post!

Feed them

This ad has been posted everywhere so why not join the hype. A powerful visual that doesn't leave to much room to think about something other then feeding.

Great guerrilla marketing

"Nice tactic for Ayuda en Accion, a no profit organization against child labour. Children drawings were placed into the boxes of several brands of sneakers, containing a call-to-action to donate for children."

Lowell George - China White

Wow. This I had on VHS tape but I taped something over it by accident and never forgave myself for that. This is to me maybe the most typical 'Little Feat/Lowell George vibe" you could get. Watch it, enjoy it, sing it, love it or hate it. This captures the true essence of making music in a traditional way for me.


Dance, Monkeys, Dance
