Having something dope to look at always helps make my Mon-daze easier. Mike Martin is an artist out of Oakland, CA and the creator of 6638. We shot these candid photos a few weeks ago as promo for some upcoming projects he’s working on.
Raise your hand if you saw ‘Straight Outta Compton’ when it came out a few weeks ago? I can’t be the only one who found it to be a HUGE source of creative inspiration, can I? Literally, everything – the music, the attitude, the fashion, the struggle, the message, it relevancy today (HELLOO)….the over kill of black clothing and raiders gear…. it really spoke to me.
Lucky for me, one of my many muses, @_persuasioon was up to the task of embodying my B.W.A. a tough, fun, modern twist on what it means to be female in the 21st century. Our grandma’s days of passivity are long gone. We’re out here making moves and getting money in higher numbers than ever before despite the overwhelming effort of mass media to keep us boxed in. Keep being you ladies (and gentleman)! Whatever that is, and whatever you do, don’t let anyone stop you.
