The Beautiful work of Andrea Joseph

Are you the type of person that empties out all your pens or markers and sometimes even ‘borrows’ some of your coworkers’ to doodle or sketch during meetings? I am. But hey, don’t be ashamed, this is a very good thing! Specially when your work looks like the amazingly detailed and realistic work of UK based Andrea Joseph . Her beautiful Moleskine illustrations (mostly on ballpoint pen) are not only overwhelming but also communicate eloquently Andrea’s personality, mood and inspiration.

Here Comes The Neighborhood

TheeBlog-HereComesTheNeighborhood
I know most of you who made it to Basel this weekend are, like me, having withdrawals and want even more visual inspiration. Yesterday I shared some photos and talked about WYNWOOD, and how this small and previously abandoned ‘hood’ is slowly becoming a prime spot for art, culture and expression during Basel each year (and every month during Wynwood Art Walk). Well, today I want to dig deeper and share with you (specially out-of-towners) what WYNWOOD is all about, who, why and how it all started. Allow me to introduce you to ‘Here Comes The Neighborhood’ a collection of beautifully shot and edited Short-Form Docuseries featuring the history of the Wynwood Walls, interviews with international participating artists and lots of eye candy.

TheeBlog_ArtBaselWynwood
Art Basel Miami Beach is an annual contemporary art exhibition (sister event to Art Basel Switzerland) held in Miami each December,and if you live here or have been here during this event, you know what great and inspiring experience it is. This year Miami was celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Basel and I am happy to say that it keeps getting better each year as it spreads throughout the city and attracts more people and great international artists like Mr. Brainwash, Shepard Fairey, RETNA, Ron English, etc. There’s one specific neighborhood, simply known as Wynwood that it is slowly becoming a MUST during Basel – as well as one of my favorite spots during this time of the year and today I want to share some photos shot this past weekend to give you a little taste of the magic and give you a new excuse to visit Miami :)
