Fashion Illustration, Danny Roberts

Self Portait of Roberts










"Girls in glasses"

















This morning I did my regular research routine, you know .. style, wwd, magazines etc. And I am a big fan of art/illustration, although I'm not great at .. I appreciate it. So surfin the web, reading the fashion news on wwd.com and I came across an article on this guy Danny Roberts and his phenominal fashion illustrations! Never heard of him til now .. but I am a big fan already. So needless to say, his work will be appearing on t-shirts this fall and I can't wait! His work on t-shirt has my name written all over it. Borders and Frontiers, an e-tailer sells Danny Roberts "Girls in glasses" tshirt as well as Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Lovers Fall collection. Amazing work!

"The September Issue" Screening in Philly

Photo: Tymbre & RJ Cutler (Director of "The September Issue")

So I attended the private screening of the september issue last night at the Ritz Five, with RJ Cutler who is the director of the film & Andre Leon Talley ( Fashion Editor at large) showed up. First of all all seeing all the (real) stylish chicks in Philly was quite refreshing, in their dresses & heels .. love seeing others who are really passion about this industry as I am. I must say the movie was not at all just fashion, sure it walked us through how Vogue Magazine is made, & what hard work it takes to get done .. but its a bit deeper than what I expected, suprisingly! And I advise every and anyone who is looking to be invovled with industry to go and see this movie!! Its important to know your history for whatever it is you want to do, and you should know who Anna Wintour is ( Editor in Chief of Vogue) .. and if you didn't before, you will soon.

So me and Andre didn't get a clear picture for some reason, which was dissapointing .. but we talked too which was great .. jus really wish that pic came out clear. He was becoming impatient with all the ppl wanting to take photos, so I let him go after we tried to re-take the pic about 5 times lol .. AND IT STILL WOULD NOT WORK! So I made sure he knew that we will meet again :) After that I saw Rj Cutler talking to noone, he was very ginuine .. and had a warm pressence (most celebs etc .. are not too nice) we talk he asked me questions, I asked hime questions, It was a great experience!!

"The September Issue" comes out in theatres Sept 11th!
Go see it!!

Amber Rose in Complex Magazine













I have faith in Amber .. and I think she wants to really wants to be somebody known by her own work, and not by means of Kanye. Ok yeah she wasn't a superstar before kanye, but I don't think she's using him to get to the top ... sure its a plus. But she seems like a smart girl who knows what she wants. Just so happen her and kanye are an item, and just so happen she wants to be a star too! So what! lol Who doesn't want to be known for something? BS if you don't! So lets stop hatin on her! I think she'll be a great model.


Here's the video of Amber at the Photoshoothttp://www.complexvideo.com/Girls/Amber-Rose

Would you guys STOP with the hacking PLZ!!!


By John D. Sutter CNN



(CNN) -- An attack on the social networking site Twitter shut the site down for about two hours on Thursday morning, causing headaches in the online community and glitches in other Web sites like Facebook.
In an e-mail to CNN.com, Twitter co-founder Biz Stone said the site was hit with a "denial of service attack," or an attempt to shut the site down by overwhelming it with traffic.
"There's no indication that this attack is related to any previous activities. We are currently the target of a denial of service attack," Stone said in the e-mail.
"Attacks such as this are malicious efforts orchestrated to disrupt and make unavailable services such as online banks, credit card payment gateways, and in this case, Twitter for intended customers or users. We are defending against this attack now and will continue to update our status blog as we defend and later investigate."
Twitter's site went down around 9:30 a.m. ET on Thursday. A message posted on Twitter's status blog said the site was active again by 11:30 a.m., but that the site remained under attack.
"We are continuing to defend against and recover from this attack," the message says.
Users of other social networking sites were also experiencing trouble on Thursday morning. Facebook users reported pieces of the site were down and there was speculation those problems were related to the Twitter attack.
"We're looking into it and will give you an update as soon as possible," Facebook's Brandee Barker told CNN.
Twitter users to post 140-character messages, and many of Twitter's users have complained about feeling disconnected from the news of the day while the site is offline.
Although its status blog claimed Twitter was back online, users were still encountering problems in accessing the micro-blogging site.
In a blog post, Twitter says it will update the public with more information as it becomes available.
A denial of service attack essentially is an attempt to flood a Web site with so much information that it must shut down.
