Art | Paintings by Kelly Reemsten

Just discovered the wonderful work of Kelly Reemsten via the Jealous Curator. I love the contradiction of the pretty dresses against the utilitarian tools… they seem to have an element of weaponry about them, don’t they? In any case, I think these paintings capture something real about how it feels to be a woman. I… read more

TAPING | Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell

I’m not going to lie. I dragged myself out the door to this taping after a long week of work, mostly out of duty and respect for names I grew up hearing. I did not know it would be it one of the best shows of my life. I did not know that Emmylou would… read more

I was poking around the matteo los angeles website today and discovered their beautifully styled collection of linen apparel. I really like the back-lit/x-ray effect in these photos.

WHEELS | ’74 VW Bug

  It won’t surprise many of you that the first installment of “Wheels” features a certain orange Volkswagen. This was my very first car that I drove all through high school (and college as well.) It currently lives at my parents house but lately I’ve been thinking about bringing it back down to Austin. I… read more

ART PRINTS | Holiday offer from Samantha French

  The latest guest I’ve interviewed for Camille Styles is none other than artist Samantha French, the talented painter featured in my very first masthead on SCOUT.

SCANNING | Wes Anderson Book Covers

The good folks at Criterion Current recently published a little slideshow featuring a few of the printed props from Wes Anderson’s movies. Used for quick and funny cutaways, these little gems are definitely worth a closer look. The comment thread on Current was full of readers who wanted to know more about the props (Who… read more
