Mother X Branded Baron


This was taken at the Mother photoshoot at Grand Central that I was art directing. Buy their album Dissonant Young, which is pretty good here. Overall it's definitely enjoyable and definitely worth a listen. So after you pick up a Branded Baron shirt head over to their site to purchase that. Like them on facebook too at http://www.facebook.com/motherband

Lana Del Rey- Blue Jeans



There's something about Lana Del Rey's songs that I like. I can't pinpoint it exactly, maybe it's different or her voice, either way I believe it's good. I did buy her EP off iTunes,(FYI Hardcover albums are so much better than digital albums) and I look forward to getting her full album. I really enjoyed this song and I think some of you out there will too.

Jay Wise feat. Chaos - Higher Music Video



Check out this awesome new Jay Wise music video featuring his partner in rhyme Chaos. I personally think this is probably his best or one of his best music videos. It's also a pretty cool song and not your typical hip hop song. Watch it and you can see a couple Branded Baron tees being worn in the video too.

Photo shoot with rock band Mother



Hey everyone! Yesterday I had the pleasure to go on a photo shoot with the band Mother. They needed shots for their album(which I'm helping them out with the design layout) and I tagged along to shoot some behind the scenes stuff, plus add my art direction input. They have their album release show at the end of the month and they needed this done to get in the album asap. The location of the shoot was at Grand Central Station in Manhattan and there were quite a couple spots that were nice places to shoot. It was cool that the photographer for this shoot was the drummer's sister, so everything definitely had a grassroots DIY feel. Yes, there were a couple times where one or two members of the band rocking Branded Baron, so you know it gives them that extra awesome stunningly fresh edge that they need. lol But seriously. It was fun and everyone had a good time. Check out the video and the song in it is their single "As you run". I do have another video to post, but I'll post that tomorrow.

Reaction to Gary Oldman


Gary Oldman is such a good and diverse actor. Sometimes it's amazing to find out that he's been in some films. I remember being absolutely shocked the first time I realized Gary Oldman was the pimp in True Romance, but maybe I didn't realize who Gary Oldman was when I first saw it. Maybe a bit of both. Ha. But sometimes this is the reaction I get when I find out Gary Oldman is in a movie and figured I would share that with you. I'm sure some of you out there had the same reaction before.

Mini Bub Munny Time Lapse Drawing



I recorded myself working on my first Kid Robot Mini Bub munny. If you don't know they are vinyl figurines that you can customize yourself. I know I have plenty of improvement and I kind of felt what method works best after awhile. I started off with pencil and then followed it up with my markers. I think I would like to try using paint next time around and see if that's any easier. I think with this video I'm one step closer in being a hand model.

Happy New Year 2012



Happy New Year everyone! It's the beginning of the end of the world....if you believe in that sort of thing. I hope you all had a great holiday season and look forward to having a kick ass 2012. 2011 was a fun a great and whacky year, so it's time to make 2012 even better. Write down your goals and keep it somewhere where it is visible, so you can meet those goals whether they're big or small. I will continue to make goals and have Branded Baron reach them and hope that you enjoy with the stunningly freshness that occurs.

Cheers for the new year!
