Evan Roth Does It Again W/ TSA Communications Comments | Oct 17 2008

Even Roth or Ni9e. He was the on behind Graffiti Analysis has done it again with his TSA Communication project where messages are cut into stainless steal plates and placing them into their luggage while going threw security while traveling. The idea i feel is incredibly creative and progressive. It makes since that something like this, making art projects with security systems will happen. Aside from the hilarity of the project it could be a pain in the ass for the traveler experimenting with the project and the rest of the line behind you TSA Communication Project home page

If you were custom/security and came across this, would you appreciate the piece or be frusterated and annoyed at the artist?

Even Roth’s new site -> Evan-Roth.com and his blog is still the same

On Abbot Kenney with Steve Alan Comments | Aug 16 2008

Steve Alan LA

I have been meaning to blog about the designer Steve Alan but have never really got around to it. While strolling around Venice we headed down Abbot Kenney in Venice Beach we came across Steve Alan store. Steve Alan’s store resembled the A.P.C. flagship store in SoHo NYC. It had a rustic cabin coziness. The colors were natural and earthly with unfinished hardwood all while keeping a slight influence of a “beach house”.

Steve Alan is located:
1601 Abbot Kinney Blvd.
Venice, CA 90291
310-452-3413

One of the standout aspect of Steve Alan’s designs are the wonderful tailoring and unique but simplistic choice of textiles

The store not only carried Steve Alan Collection but A.P.C., Wings + Horns and others were available.

Potential Trip To LA - Part One Comments | Aug 10 2007

Last night I went to my hosting providers website MediaTemple.net. I noticed that they were sponcering a multidicaplenary design lecture at the Getty Instatute in LA. The event is called QBN Sessions and is being put on by MediaTemple and Krop. Seeing that the lecture has speakers such as Shepard Fairey, Joshua Davis, Phunk Studio, Michael C. Place, Matt Owens & Mark Owens among others I felt it would be a great event to attend if ever I had the chance.

After thinking about it over night I felt I needed a vacation. Working all summer and saving needs to be rewarded. I showed my friends Jordan and Ryan and they displayed Interest. So low and behold I think were going to LA for a quick trip before school!

Being introduced to the travel site HotWire it was not so much of a worry on finances either. Some how the website is able to sell flights and hotels any many other packages for VERY CHEEP! For instance getting a room at the Hotel Angeleno Beverly Hills for a reasonable price to be centraly located, and cost effective flights out of Buffalo. The site offers a great selection for all travel destinations. The only think that is that they keep the exact Hotel name a secret until everything is paid for. However doing some research, and process of elimination will allow you to find what hotel you will be booking.

We are planning to go to LA from September 5 - 9 arrive back and head to school. There’s nothing better than that!

Here are some pictures of areas around LA. They just get me more and more excited.
