Speaking With: Mitzi Guidry Of Los Angeles Leathercraft

Speaking With Mitzi Guidry Of Los Angeles Leather Craft 15

You know those people that make life better? The people who, not only live with intention, but seem to craft their very existence. They bring life, energy and creativity into the world, inspiring others to do the same. I have recently taken on the task of finding these gems in Los Angeles. The diamonds in the rough who help fuel the art and industry of the beautiful city we all live in.

Today is my first venture into their world, finding what inspires them and what they love about LA. I could think of no one more fitting than Los Angeles Leather Crafts very own Mitzi Guidry to start the process.

Zackary Drucker Is A Beautiful Blonde Monster For Luke Gilford

We’ve written about photographer Luke Gilford before and how much we love his photographic point of view. We’ve written about Zackary Drucker and how much we love what she is doing with her work. It should come as absolutely no surprise that the combination of these two artists has yielded something super fucking fantastic: a hysterical, high-fashion, high-concept, absolutely brilliant series of photos of Zackary dressed like a blonde monster for Document Journal.

A Preview Of Crusade For Art In LA

Art can be so expensive and, for casual art enthusiasts who want a piece of it, it can sometimes seem impossible to grasp. Those dreams of being a modern Herb and Dorothy seem so impossible to reach! Atlanta based Crusade For Art from Jennifer Schwartz Gallery feels that everyone should be able to participate in art collecting and that it should engage communities. That is why the organization is hitting the road in a tricked out 1977 VW Bus to share the gospel and get art to cool people via pop-up galleries across the country that put art in art fans’ hands…for free! The tour is coming to Los Angeles this Saturday and will feature some local and not-local talent you should be aware of: you just need to stop by and check out the event. To help spread the word, the art crusaders sent us some of the photos that they’ll be featuring. Check them out!
