What's Inspiring Me.




Wow, I had an amazing day today.

Here is why:

1. I found out that Yoshitomo Nara will have an exhibition in NYC at the same time I am there.

2. My Never-Ending Dumpling Banquet with Doreen

3. I had coffee with Stephen Fry at Roof Top Bar

4. I went to Mag Nation and got inspired by so many mags- Empty, UPPERCASE, Dumbo Feather, IDN Neo-York Special, Ad Busters and Monocle.

5. I read about a really cool project in West Philadelphia curated by Steve Powers called 'Love Letter'. (via UPPERCASE Mag.) See A Love Letter For You for more info.

6. I watched an incredible documentary at The Melbourne International Film Festival called 'Bill Cunningham New York'. Amazing! I'm going to see it again on Sunday night. I recommend it to all artists and creative people who believe in following their passions.

7. I ended my day by reading my new favourite blog Missed Connections.
