The Great Wave Of Kanagawa - Katsushika Hokusai - Art Institute Of Chicago 2013
A selection from his published Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji…. This amazing print, also known as The Great Wave or The Wave; is an ukiyo-e woodblock print by Japanese artist Hokusai, published sometime between 1830 and 1833 in the late Edo period as the first print in Hokusai’s series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji. It is Hokusai’s most famous work, and one of the best recognized works of Japanese art in the world. It depicts an enormous wave threatening boats off the coast of the prefecture of Kanagawa.
While sometimes assumed to be a tsunami, the wave is, as the picture’s title notes, more likely to be a large okinami (“wave of the open sea”). As in all the prints in the the series you can see Mt. Fuji in the background.
*The series depicts Mount Fuji in differing seasons and weather conditions from a variety of different places and distances. It actually consists of 46 prints created between 1826 and 1833. The first 36 were included in the original publication and, due to their popularity, ten more were added after the original publication.

221B Tactical Trade Show Promo Card
I just had the pleasure of working with product development team at 221B Tactical and we really took advantage of being a “one stop shop” at WATERMRK STUDIOS! Utilizing our “in house” full length portrait studio, I was able to photograph models using and wearing the innovative products that 221B Tactical has created. I then integrated the photos and created graphics for the above informational trade show card that we designed and then had printed locally.
221B Tactical will be the Atlantic City (NJ) Police Security Expo today and tomorrow (June 23rd-24th) with samples of the MAXX-DRI Ultra Comfort vest and their brand new EXXTREMITY Tactical light Glove! For more information on how to purchase one of these awesome items you can visit the 221B Tactical Website!
*There’s a very cool story as to why they chose 221B for their company name, make sure you check out their about page.

Tony Gwynn was one classy ball player and gentleman. I was very sad to hear of his passing to the big game in the sky today. I looked up to him a lot when I was in little league and watched lots of tapes of him hitting to try and mimic his swing… Here’s my 1986 topps Tony Gwynn that a got in a pack of cards from Danny’s Dugout (New City, NY) #tonygwynn #padres #baseball #halloffame #1986topps #baseballcard #topps #gwynn #baseballlegend #worldseries
Pearl Jam -TEN - Original CD box packaging (1991)
Rememberer when CDs came in long cardboard boxes?
My grandma (Frances Alpert) was awesome and always inspired me to explore music. One summer afternoon in 1991(I was 11 years old), she took me to Sam Goody to buy this album that changed my life in so many ways. I have so many pearl jam friends and family now thanks to this music entering my life. Always buy and share music with the people you love. Ha, If only i had joined the Ten Club then :/

The Palace at 4 A.M - Alberto Giacometti - MOMA
According to Giacometti, The Palace at 4 A.M. is a metaphor about love relations, stemming from the memory of an affair that had lasted about six months and ended about a year before he created this work. Throughout that time, he claims, they did not see the day-light, days and nights bore the same color, as though it was all taking place early in the morning. “During those nights”, he stated, “we used to build a fantastic palace… a highly fragile palace made of matchsticks”.
This is one of my favorite works of art!
