Writing on the chalkboard
I spend a lot of money on non-profit projects. I'm working on a 50,000 sq ft space in New York that was supposed to happen in Hong Kong

These model shots are for a project inspired by Caravaggio's Judith Beheading Holofernes

Wooden frames

Drop Dead T-shirt
Drop Dead is my favourite brand from England. The words they use on their shirts like, "Dead" are so glamorous
