Vice

Intrigued by Vice News which includes a seven part video documentation of secret North Korean labor camps. In view of the "Hermit Kingdom" recently making world news, Vice footage captures a glimpse of the people's reality.

Reminiscing sunshine...

A perfect rainy day to reminisce sun, surf, and swim...a while back, I stumbled upon the works of legendary surf photographer LeRoy Grannis and record breaking U.S. Olympic divers Sammy Lee and Victoria Draves. Found their life stories delightfully inspirational...

Fresh off the press!

I'm excited to introduce the new Shirtisfly Type Tees. These new designs start off a series of visual word plays to come. A portion of proceeds from all sales this holiday season will be donated to charity: water, a non-profit organization providing clean water to developing countries. Enjoy!

N Building Says...



Among the video/techy visuals at MOMA's Talk to Me exhibition, I was most intrigued by the N Building located in Tachikawa, Tokyo. Built as a Teradesign Architects and Qosmo Inc. collaboration, N Building's facade is a massive, scannable QR code allowing outside viewers to scan for up-to-date shop info and view the people inside as characters in real-time. No billboards or commercial signs, just scan and let the building talk.

Kyotofu

Delighted to discover Kyotofu, a japanese dessert bar and bakery, in midtown NYC. Their warm chocolate cake with passion fruit mochi {photo above, by rc}, sake infused mac & cheese, and ginger margarita were scrumptious!

Row, Row, Row Your Boat...


If you're in Central Park, visit the Loeb Boathouse to set course in water on a canoe, kayak or gondola. Located on the Eastside of the park at 74th St., the boathouse is open daily, April to November, weather permitting. A fun way to spend an afternoon in NYC :)

Thanks to all who stopped by at the fair in June. It was great to meet each and every one of you, especially those who stopped by last year. Cheers to savoring every summer moment!

Ai Weiwei


Work of Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei. He has been detained by Chinese police without official charges, his studio sealed off, and his assistants interrogated; possibly consequences of his criticism of China's government corruptions and scandals. His Sunflower seed exhibition at Tate Modern's turbine Hall consisted of 100 million porcelain sunflower seeds weighing 150 tons. He was commissioned as design consultant for the Beijing National Stadium hosting '08 Olympics. Provocative, relevant work impacting politics and culture through creativity.

Roll Bollywood Style



Within the last few months, Kati Roll Company opened a new location right by Bryant Park to become the most popular new kid on the block. Known for their Indian (burrito style) wraps, it's cheap, delicious, and a perfect to go for lunch. Various types of meat, potato, or egg/cheese are wrapped with delightfully tasteful warm paratha. Kudos to their clean branding and Bollywood posters adorning the festively orange walls as well.
With more people lined up every time I go, it seems word is spreading fast. Stop by and taste for yourself!
