Adventures In Collage

You guys remember Brandon B. Jones? We didn’t–and we wrote about him before. Well, Brandon is a terrific collage artist and photographer and he recently is throwing various shapes and figures and ladies against each other for elegant, fashionable, and undoubtedly super fantasy driven collages.

A Dog’s Life Snacks

A Dog's Life Snacks

I am always hungry. If you are eating, I want to eat. If you touch food, I want to eat it. If you mention this F word or the E-A-T word with a certain inflexion, I will want to know when and where I can E-A-T some F-O-O-D. Myself and my little dog friend Scooter had the chance to sample some of Santa Monica’s A Dog’s Life Real Dogs Biscuits. A late morning chance to E-A-T? Why, yes, myself and Scooter would enjoy that, please.

Introducing The Los Angeles Drink Map

Introducing The Los Angeles Drink Map

When you write your New Years resolutions, there is always a tiny voice in your head who reminds you that you are likely to fuck it all up. “You’ll be lucky if you get one done,” the voice rudely says in your ears.

A Look Inside A Farm Fresh To You CSA Box

A Look Inside A Farm Fresh To You CSA Box

We recently subscribed to a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) box from Farm Fresh To You. We had been looking for one that delivered and that had a flexible schedule and that would be good for two people, give or take: Farm Fresh To You was the box that everyone from our friends to our Twitter suggested we try. Our first box finally arrived last night and we couldn’t have been more excited. It was like a foodie Christmas morning that had us pulling out vegetables and fruit and this and that and that all over the place at midnight. If you’ve been considering getting a CSA box or have no idea what a CSA box is, take a peek inside of our Farm Fresh To You delivery. We’re still trying to process what exactly we got.

Judy Unger Illustrates Her Food

Judy Unger Illustrates Her Food

Judy Unger is a classic food illustrator. She isn’t a young Art Center grad who is making moody drawings of food stuffs: she’s a successful Los Angeles food illustrator who has been working for decades, illustrating foods for brands as they are. She is very much a hyper-realist and is very pre-Internet (she even mentions on her blog how she used to have to tote around her portfolio to meetings). Her work is fascinating as it captures a passed moment in American food culture and art in addition to having a very commercial, very beautiful style of representing objects through art.
