When designing I like to repurpose garments and bring life to something people would usually disregard. You’d be surprised how many pairs of vintage US Army Issue fatigues i come across thrifting. Seeing those and being the rebel I am, I figured why not customize a few pair. The Juxtaposition of using Camoflauge and Applying large logos to stand out is a trick I picked up failing out of art classes in college. Crazy right, because I love art but being in Baltimore by 8am coming from Upper Marlboro daily was a task so I took attendance L’s every semester 🤷🏽‍♂️. Anyway; taking something like camofluage, normally used to hide, and printing undeniably huge logos over it to pop out at first glance. The urge to stare is almost undeniable.  The Camo blends but the logos jump at you!

Today after finishing up another awesome interview with @TheMorningWave Baltimore Radio Podcast, I decided to head up Morgan to hand out some stickers and business cards on their first day of classes. I miss my old college days up there and hadn't even noticed until today. Morgan was instrumental in the building of GoonMilk and my personal growth as a designer, and overall person, so visiting always brings back great memories of Wild nights and missed classes... And oh yeah there was an eclipse today... Kind of felt surreal being on campus on the first day of school and theres another natural phenomenon happening. Last time there was an earthquake on my birthday, first day of classes, before I dropped out to pursue my own Business. Maybe this is a sign for great things to come. Anyways I linked up with lil bro @LifeBehindTheScope and got some great footage that I chopped up for promo purposes.

Check it out Here.

Here is the entire shoot from a few weeks ago with Rebecca Of @SiegerandBlanche, and Model/Stylist/Photographer @theAmberRayne. Glad I got to work with Rebecca again she has a great eye for photography and just a cool kid trying to learn through this Mastered program just like me. AS well as working with Amber, whom has been working hard building her brand and modeling in Wale vides and all that kind of stuff. Our area has so much talent but we never get to showcase it on a large scale. I would like to work with more creators in the area. Also have to catch one of Graffiti Warehouse's Events. Their artwork is amazing and definitely deserves more attention. Baltimore's street art scene is very low key but full of gems! ALMOST makes me miss living out there when I was at Morgan. But anyway Im rambling enjoy the shots!

Just got the text from Rebecca, the other half of the Dream Team, and the shots from our Shoot last week will be in my email soon. But for now enjoy this short I threw together for GoonMilk promo. I thought it was pretty dope. The song is "Shutdown" by Skepta, randomly youtube'd Skepta and this was the first song i came across, felt the vibe. I'm playing around with this Final Cut Pro X trial and liking the upgrades. It feels good to create in different ways like video editing, or website design. Sharpening my crafts will someday earn me a bag, but for now you guys get these gems for free. And if you know anyone needing videography work let me know!

This morning Me and Eli met up with my photographer Buddy/Colleague Rebecca From NY, whom had been in Baltimore for the night for the Chance the Rapper Concert last night and wanted to shoot. Rebecca's pretty dope she shot both of my last shoots in NY and we've begun to call ourselves the dream team the way we work so well together. She being from NY and knowing no one or where to shoot. She asked me to scout for models and locations. So casually I run into Amber a week or two beforehand and she said she'd be down to model/style herself since I mostly do Men's styling. And what better location in Baltimore than Graffiti Alley?

The Shoot was Fire.

Heres a few Behind The Scenes shots.
