Beauty Is Embarrassing, The Creative Inspiration Movie Of 2013

Beauty Is Embarrassing, The Creative Inspiration Movie Of 2013

Every year there is one documentary released that is a pool full of creative inspiration. These films are made to grab you–the sponge–and dunk you inside of it, leaving you full of inspiration and ideas and all sorts of artistic excitement that you could practically paint enough paintings to fill a museum. Herb & Dorothy did that in 2008 and Bill Cunningham New York did that in 2010 and–this year–the Wayne White focused Beauty Is Embarrassing does the same thing.

Yevgeniya Mikhailik’s Longing Limned And More

Yevgeniya Mikhailik's Longing Limned And More 1

Yevgeniya Mikhailik is a Long Beach based artist and illustrator whose work inhabits melting natural colors and folky animal figures. She seems to be painting what could be the settings for serious fantasy books for all ages, these places that ripple with activity and move slowly, braiding in and out of itself. You feel like you could get lost in her work, caught in between her wiggling lines and pools of blotted colors.

Photos On The Go: Stephanie Gonot On Wish You Were Here

Photos On The Go Stephanie Gonot On Wish You Were Here 1

The postcard: what a forgotten medium! These glossy paper travelers are associated with gift shop whimsy or gimmicky giggles. They’re also universal and can have an incredible craft to them. They just go so overlooked as the gesture is now equated to posting a photo on a friend’s Facebook wall. Postcards are so much more special, though! LA photographer Stephanie Gonot is trying to bring the postcard back in a very caring way with a show she has curated with Month Of Photography Los Angeles. She collected work from thirty photographers locally and beyond to share work that would be turned into postcards and that visitors can mail from the gallery. The show is Wish You Were Here and it will undoubtedly breathe beautiful hope back into mailboxes. To get an idea of what to expect–and where the idea came from–we spoke with Stephanie about what went into making the show, which actually opens tonight.

Hak’s Chipotle Bourbon BBQ Sauce

Hak's Chipotle Bourbon BBQ Sauce 1

Barbecue is something that I’ve learned to love with age. I think I can point my dislike or extreme apatheticism toward the food styling to a very unhappy family trip to Billy Bob’s in Texas, a trip where all we ate was barbecue for days and everything smelled like horse waste and we had to wear cowboy hats. For a young, pseudo-vegetarian gay boy, this was in no way my idea of a good time. I’ve started to indulge in barbecue though, releasing any childhood BBQ grudges into the atmosphere so that I can incorporate this food subgenre into my life. This is good news because we recently stumbled upon Hak’s BBQ Sauce, a self-described “high end” barbecue sauce from Los Angeles.
