Inspos + Friends
Most of my inspiration comes from artists, filmmakers, musicians, paintings, murals, films and magazines. From Hypebeast to Lorde to Chance the Rapper to Interstellar blah blah blah...I don't think Pinterest would have enough room for me to pin point all those.
So instead, I want to introduce you to friends, dear to me, that have taught + inspired me through their work, but mostly with who they are behind closed doors: full of integrity + humility + love.
Civil Engineer + Part-Owner of Manready Merc
Rob is the culmination of Houston’s heartbeat. A bit of suave meets cool meets I can dunk on you meets Southern hospitality. I met Rob through the early days of the opening of Manready Mercantile, the coolest shop in Houston. Rob keeps me up-to-date in all things H-town. So, if you think I’m hip…I’m not. Rob is. Thank you Rob for helping pioneer some of the coolest things about the H.
Creative Director + Photographer + Michael Jackson Moves Conniseur
My path with Shaider was similar to Ryan's. Met 3-4 years ago, never saw him again. 2016 had us cross paths not because of work or Instagram, but through friendship developed at a church service. This guy pushes my creative envelope I restrict myself in. Together we dream + execute. Thank you for teaching me how to be a better Filipino/Singaporean.
Fine Artist + Honorary 5th Member of HAIM (so it's been rumored)
I met Ally Wallace through our local church at the time in which I worked with her awesome husband, Steve! (Check out kintigo.com) My fiance and I immediately were drawn by some LIVE paintings Ally had produced. When you see an Alexandria Wallace painting, you know it's none other than her with the genuine strokes and timeless creativity she produces on canvas.
