Liz Novak

OK, so I work with the fabulous Liz. I wanted to ask her some questions because she makes amazing things. I want to be like her when I grow up: shes hilarious, intelligent, and talented. Not to mention she's great at girl talk and advice. You all need to read this awesome interview and visit her shop.
1. What inspires you?
Oh man, too much. I spend way too much time looking at things. So I guess “things” inspire me. I’ve always been fascinated by “old stuff” since I was a little kid and my mom and grandma would take me around to yard sales, flea markets, and craft shows. I’ve collected lots of things over a short period of time: seashells, stamps, prayer cards, teeth, pyrex bowls and tableware… I was probably the only 16 year old in my neighborhood with collection of glass beakers and a full set of silverware. I grew up at the Jersey Shore so I spent my time living between the ocean and the pine barrens. I think a lot of my taste for color and texture comes from that and all the old …

Paul Lonardo- Fear Before Photography

As anyone can probably tell, Paul is my brother. So it might seem kind of funny to "interview" him, but I really think more people need to see his work. I always knew he painted, and was amazing at it, and then he became a tattoo artist, but when he told me he takes pictures I really didn't know what to expect. We climbed the stairs together and he whipped out his insanely large laptop and tiny cheap camera, and showed me some of the most beautiful photographs I have ever seen, and I'm not just saying that (we're brutally honest with each other). I hope you guys check out his site, Fear Before Photography and appreciate what he has to say. We can all be inspired by someone!


HERES THE INTERVIEW! 1. How long have you been interested in photography?

A) I have been interested in photography for quite a few years now. It started off on a trip to New York City , I had just purchased my first digital camera off a person on craigslist for 20 dollars a few days prior and r…

Extreme Makeup

New and Old Hairstyles

I leave my hair in a pony tail or just down all the time. I have flat, shitty, brown hair, and it sucks. I dress more on the creative or high fashion side, but my hair never matches my outfits. I need to start dressing how I want to dress, do my make up and hair how I want, and stop being so damn lazy. That's my problem when getting ready, and yet I love glamor and clothes more than anything on the planet. Now, these pictures aren't exactly what I'm leaning towards to do to my hair, but they definitely serve as an inspiration to do a version of these looks. Various runway shows, magazine spreads, and of course Katy Perry, Gaga, and Miss Lauper. Gwen Stefani is always someone to follow in my opinion.

Lara Stone in Black and White

Another model I truly admire. She has a huge ass gap in between her teeth and is a size 4/6 (which is normal/skinny) but bigger in the fashion world. I love her look, her poses, everything. She's broken so many boundaries and it's inspiring how successful she has been after how judgmental some photographers, designers, and editors can be. Once again, more art. And not just because shes naked and its black and white photos!

Kate

Kate Moss is obviously a legend. She's the shortest famous model, and she's over 30 and still going, which is pretty rare. I mean, she has been on more magazine covers, and in more ad campaigns than I can even count. Plus her line for Topshop is to die for-- totally her style. I love Kate, she has been in thousands of beautiful spreads. Her versatility, and ability to make nude shots and what could be considered "boring" into art is amazing. A true fashion chameleon.

Avant Garde Hair

I truly wish I had the balls to walk around this way. Art for your hair.

Lady Gaga Boston Review

Here are some not so high quality pictures, but fuck it, at least you can see the stage set up and the blood pouring from her neck.  Ok, so obviously i'm in love with Lady Gaga, especially after reading the latest Rolling Stone article about her. So I went into the show slightly hammered with high hopes. A gay kid and I attacked a protester (not so violently) and went on out merry way. I went to the show with my mom, who felt so uncomfortable dancing, that she took pictures LITERALLY the whole time. After all the hype and stuff she says about her shows, such as "it'll free you" I thought I'd come out of that place a new person, which sounds silly. Anyways, she put on a good, long show, and even played the piano to a fast jazz song in 6 inch heels. I was super impressed with her vocal range while running around crazily. Not to mention the backround and stage set up was beautiful and out of this world. It took me to a new place, and I danced my ass off. Gaga was so …
