Bro. Broooooo! Was the last time I wrote something on here really over a year ago?! Mixtape posts don't count. I didn't think I'd ever have to use being busy as an excuse but I've just been busy. I don't know, I guess with less time to sit down and write I was drawn toward being more visual than literal? Either way, this post is an effort to get back into the habit of journaling what I was doing, or planned to do. Really I just needed to get out there, move around and travel (see the gram, and contributions to the NEEDS&WANTS blog.) What I'm seeing is instrumental to what I'm making. Without any form of discovery or exploration, I find it extremely difficult to design anything. If I try to recap from where I left off this would start to feel like an endless scroll so I'll try to keep this short and highlight the most significant stories.
Since forever I was trying to start my own magazine, newspaper or just publish something. With a small team of people smarter than me, we started NEEDS&WANTS Paper last Fall and will release its third issue around the same time this year. A few things are in motion for the growth of the publication and I imagine in a couple of years it will outgrow being just an accessory to an outerwear brand to something of its own. The web store has been renovated once again — shop the collection here.

here. Kinda sucks, though, one of my go-to cameras suffered water damage from a boat ride in Treasure Beach, I haven't been able to find a replacement since.
Ok so, aside from all thats taken place in between, we should be up to date — for now. Ugh! Now that I think about it, I'm not into this blog layout/design anymore. If I take lapse from posting again it'll most likely be that I'm trying to update the design or maybe I'll just cop out and revert to a splash page. Oh, and don't click any of categorized links beneath the header, I took the images down; I'm still trying to decide how to display my old (and new) work. See, you never really have it all figured out, you just learn as you
