Ce que j’aime en toi


i took a day or so to get used to my new situation, to look around and just be without rushing. Corey inspired me to take some pics of the things i passed on the daily here in miami. (more to come)


and this book i ordered on french amazon finally arrived! it’s a compilation by husband and women artists who created images of what they love about each other. i happened to be lucky enough to meet one of the artists (France Dumas) as she was sketching the fleamarket at clingancourt one day and we became friends. now she’s going to do the illustrations for my fleamarket book on Paris now that i have the time to sit and write!


i love the variety of styles





these line drawings below are France’s



so that’s it for now. i just wanted to say hi and let you know i was ok, and thank you for all your support over the past couple of days. i’m going to nyc tonite for the weekend and will surely be my old self soon! love to you all, xoc
