Here comes the king

Last week I contacted my friend Mykola Dosenko, a pixel artist from Urkaine, to see if he wanted to collaborate with me on a project for Snoop Lion. I told him that we had a budget, but only 2 days to work on the project. With 48hrs before delivery, Mykola and I decided that he would design, and I would animate and edit the video. Our workflow was solid, the only thing hindering us was the fact that I live in the US and Mykola was in Ukraine. We squashed all that by deciding that we weren’t going to sleep. Here’s our product :]

I’m happy with how the vid turned out, especially since it’s a lyric video and with the time we were given. This is actually one of my favorite tracks from Snoop Lion project. Super thanks to Mykola for working close with me on this one, we had fun meeting via Google+ during it all. Shouts to the 10 hour time difference!!

Freak show festival 2012

I went to Freak Show Festival, a 3 day electro/psytrance music festival out in the La Jolla Indian Reservations. I went with my bestfriend, Ron, and our family friend Mariska.

img_0154 I took this trip as an opportunity to test out my fancy Palladium boots that I recently got :].

SF trip

Nothing excites me more than an impromptu trip out of Los Angeles, especially if it’s a trip up to the bay! I usually tend to hit up San Francisco at least once a year, it’s one of my most favorite cities to visit…

img_1388 I trekked it out with two of my best friends, Cory & Ron. We’ve been buddies since high school and were due for a weekend trip together.

img_1518 We had a blast at the festival, the vibes were perfect. We were most excited to see Les Claypool, the musician behind the South Park theme song. Since it was fleet week, the Blue Angels were flying above us which added a nice touch to everything.

img_1611 After roaming around in the city, we settled down in Little Italy for some food at Sodini’s. We had an awesome pie and I also spilled a friend’s glass of wine all over myself *OOPS*

img_1650 The next morning we headed over to Squat & Gobble for a nice breakfast before we hit the road back to Los Angeles. It’s crazy because I recently heard that Squat & Gobble was destroyed by a four-alarm fire :[

It was a refreshing and stress-free adventure to SF, can’t wait to go back.

MDBP 2012

Mad Decent wrapped up the summer with their block party that was presented by Puma. After taking the party to Toronto, Philly, New York, and Chicago, the yearly party had finally landed for it’s last stop in Los Angeles…
