BODY ART – JESSICA WHITE

Supermodel Jessica White (born 1984) was scouted at age 16 from Buffalo, New York and soon found herself in Paris where she signed a contract with the IMG agency and pretty quickly landed campaigns with CoverGirl, Chloe and Gap.

Applause to one of Buffalo’s own and cheers to her Supermodel status and success. Well deserving I’m sure!!

skmbt_c35309022014370I was asked to distribute this to as many people as I know, so I suppose better than forwarding it just through an email, this reaches everyone. Made possible by AIDS Community Services.
Thanks Maisha (Mishee Mee)!!


MEETING ARTIST DANNY SIMMONS

(pictured above: Greg, Edreys, Danny)

I had the pleasure of meeting artist Danny Simmons while on my short 36 hour trip through NYC. His studio is full of african artifacts and other artists works, as he is also a collector. To the (left) of Greg you can see a Romare Bearden.

Recognized as an artist first, many people will recognize Danny as brother of mogul Russell Simmons (Phat Pharm, Def Jam). Danny was very inspiring and actually a hilarious guy. I laughed the entire time I was there, although while showing us his work, he was very serious and passionate as an artist should be. If you watch Run’s House, you may notice him from this episode below.

NO SLEEP TIL BROOKLYN

After landing safely at JFK, I  pleasantly traveled to Brooklyn to meet the appraiser/collector  and art enthusiast Mark Dabney. We met at the famous Junior’s which was right around the corner from the Gallery/Lounge on Rockwell Place. I didn’t get a chance to try any of the Junior’s seafood or cheesecake, but it surely look Deelissh!!!

I had 4 pieces shipped to be in this show along with artists Bobby Hill (NYC) and Sole Sister (TX). The reception was cool and I actually sold a piece. So, as Ice Cube would say…”Today was a good day!”
