Thank you for the hangover, LA

via Monster Children

If you made it to the party at 1700 Naud last night, you know what I’m talking about

We all drank like there was no tomorrow. Well, tomorrow is here and it doesn’t feel great. It all was for a good reason, so no regrets here. The LA Issue 61 launch party / 15 years of Monster Children / Photo Annual too good and too many beers were consumed. Someone even drank an entire bottle of bacon bourbon we had in the office — which we kept there as a joke. Now we’re paying for our bad choices and nursing this hangover that we have no one to blame for but ourselves. My heart goes out to you, bacon bourbon drinker, whoever you are.

Say yes to Ponyboy

Our buddies Michael Stember and James Dorje came over to cook an amazing private dinner for guests. It was too good not to be shared with the world, so here are some photos. You probably weren't here but at least you get to have an idea.

Jealous? If you live in New York, you can check out their incredible new restaurant Ponyboy in Brooklyn.

Now you know that if anyone invites you to a private Ponyboy dinner, you have to say yes.

The (RED) Doll Show

Did you make it to the Girl x RED party this Saturday?

We were so happy to host Girl Skateboards and RED in presenting their collaborative show to raise awareness and funds to end AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa. The show, presented by Girl, has an auction running though the end of the week.

THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN.

About Johanna:

Johanna Olk studied industrial design in northern France and has always been attracted to imagery and composition with a timeless beauty. Her artwork is refined to what is essential. Simple gestures convey deep meaning and emotion. This feeling carries through in the various mediums she practices including painting, illustration, tattoo, print, and sculpture. The work relates an ubiquitous emotional connection through simplified graphic imagery that reflects life’s everyday melancholy and beauty. Johanna currently lives and works between Guéthary & Paris, France. In her freetime she enjoys wave riding the local beaches in around Biarritz, attending to her loyal canine companion Serge, and lively wine induced evenings with friends.
