Wednesday, August 7, 2013 Artsy Fartsy: Honey I’m Home


Welcome to Honey’s world, where playing with your food is highly encouraged, emphemerality is priceless, and anything can be a canvas. We went ape over Honey’s awesome tattooed fruit  when we first saw it in Dossier Journal, and discovered that bananas were just the tip of the icebox when it comes to her food/art intersection. One of the coolest things about her work is that none of it is made to last, but Honey doesn’t seem to care. “ I am one of those people who are totally and utterly enamored with process,” she says. “The end product is just a bonus.”

Wednesday, July 24, 2013 Artsy Fartsy: Photographer Felisha Tolentino

Felisha Portrait

As soon as we met photographer Felisha Tolentino, we instantly started putting her to work (like here, and here). Felisha is quite the accomplished 20-something, and though she may be young, she totally gets around (with her camera, that is). She’s shot bands like Green Day and Sandy Pussy, worked a lot with The Cobrasnake, and also knows her way around a fashion shoot—and she’s still in college! Since you’re going to be seeing a lot more of Felisha’s work in the near future, we caught up with her recently to talk embarrassing stories, future plans and spirit animals.

Monday, July 8, 2013 Artsy Fartsy: Snap-Happy with Fashion Photog Rob Oades

 Scan 31

If there’s one thing we love around here—oh, besides candy and shoes and stickers—it’s models. Specifically off-duty ones. So, when we stumbled across fashion photographer Rob Oades’ side project of candid model Polaroids, our hearts went boom.  The photos, lovingly or jokingly scribbled-upon by each of the girls, are cute, fun and ultimately super revelatory of each of their personalities. We caught up with Oades to talk personal connections, destroying an image, and what the f@$% to do with all these photos!

Monday, June 24, 2013 Artsy Fartsy: Meet The Mushpit


If you’re bored of stuffy, self-important style magazines, then you really need to get up on The Mushpit. This sassy London fanzine is an ode to the glittery glory days of the early Naughties, when pop music was enjoyed without irony and choker necklaces were still a thing. With crop top-heavy fashion spreads, tongue-in-cheek relationship advice, and dreamy real-boy centrefolds, The Mushpit is redefining the modern fashion magazine from its Dalston, East London HQ. Editors Char Roberts and Bertie Brandes (both 22) gave us the scoop.—Phoebe Lovatt

Wednesday, June 19, 2013 Artsy Fartsy: The Art of Punk

 I found the art and fashion of punk before I discovered the music. When I was 13, I dyed my hair, wore ripped up clothes, and started hanging out with the weird kids. Even though it was the late ’90s, and punk was “dead,” my best friends and I loved classic “’77″ punk music thanks to our trusty neighborhood record clerk. I covered my bedroom walls with flyers from local punk shows and the art of Gee Vaucher, Dave King, Raymond Pettibon, Winston Smith and others. I was inspired by the rad women in the scene. They taught me to be fearless.

In the latest installment of The Art of Punk, a documentary series commissioned by MoCAtv about the visual culture of punk, filmmakers Bryan Ray Turcotte and Bo Bushnell delve into art of Crass, who happen to have been my favorite band. Their loud, fast, anarcho-punk lyrics and absolute conviction to the DIY spirit won my young heart. I spoke with the filmmakers about punk music, the Met gala and their favorite punk ladies, and Bryan even dug into his extensive collection of ephemera to highlight my heroes.—Martine Syms
