rightwhereitstartsandends asked: Do you go to concordia? I'm a highschool student about to graduate and I was considering concordia for photography. I was wondering if you liked it there or not and what program you're in :)
I used to go to Concordia and I was studying Sociology with a minor in Educational Psycology. It was only after 3 years of studies did I realize I wanted to persue an education and career in Art, I then transfered to Fine Arts.
Concordia is an amazing university. The Fine Arts and design programs are really great. The only ussue is that Concordia is not very interested in building YOUR career as an artist. It is the perfect school for those seeking to be independent artists who want to figure out how to make a living off their art on their own and dont really want guidance when it comes to career building. They dont really force you to learn how to self promote and develop your career (Its kind of up to you to figure that out) But thats great in another way because many artists dont want to have money and career as the sole drive behind their education and would rather learn it solely through actual involvement in the art scene and making art in the studio.
I honestly think Concordia + extreme involvement and networking in such a thriving city like Montreal is the perfect combo if you can build yourself up to the job you want. Go for it!
And goodluck! :)
This Saturday at the Burnal Equinox was just an awesome audio/visual art frenzy.
Before moving to San Francisco I did my fair share of research in the hopes of getting an idea of where the chill underground edm scene manifests the most. I also wanted a place that provided not just a good sound system, but the spacial and visual elements that make for an engaging environment. All results pointed to The public works San Francisco. And my oh my, was it an engaging experience indeed!
Seriously feelin those playa burn vibes :)

Myself and miss Lastika naturally swarmed over the live painting wall.Also, a cute fuzzy pink creature seems to be gettin’ in on this action.
Check out her amazing book, illustrations, and creative process:
Minimal tech house, massive kaleidoscopic projections, and belly dancing.Its like the inside of my head.
What more could I have asked for?
Always a wonderful artadeventure with Lastika.

Finally finished up a water color of the seriously stylin’ Nadya Hasan, author of http://thefiercediaries.com/
Her skirt is a killer multicolored sequence.
Its the display of play with color and texture in almost all her looks that allows me to say that this girl is one serious fashion illustration muse.
