It's funny how momentum happens. How someone can pop up into your life in a subtle way then all of a sudden they are part of your life. I met M very briefly at a birthday bbq. They seemed so interesting to me. Maybe it was their soul behind their eyes, their creative aesthetic that felt very unique and authentic, or maybe it was their kindness. Either way, I knew they would be my friend. Not to mention having one of the best Instagram Account names. Cut to a month or so later, and we are working together on a shoot for one of their many creative endeavors as an art director and artist with The September Issues . Sealed. Friendship began and opening up to their creative mind unfolded. WIth clients like Adidas, Nike, Rihanna and Gucci, their work digs into the ideas of research and conceptuality. With the most alluring color combinations my eyes have seen. Imaginative Creative Direction at it's finest.
