As some of you know, I’ve been a fashion and beauty writer for the magazine CHAOS.
And guess what? My latest article FINALLY came out!
For the piece, I interviewed a new up and coming New York illustration artist, Rachel Kolby, on her artwork. In my article, I talk with Rachel about why she decided to pursue a career as an artist and the difficulty of pursuing that career in our struggling economy.
Here is a small excerpt from the introduction: “For a moment, the world has stopped. You’re not worrying about whether or not you’ll have a job tomorrow. You’re not thinking about the fact that you’re late again on the rent. It doesn’t bother you that your tire is flatter than a sheet of paper. Your troubles are still surely there but they can wait. They aren’t bothering you for a few minutes because you’re standing still. You’re eyes are locked onto something. You can’t tear them away from it. It captures you. It speaks to you. It’s as if someone looked deep into the very core of your soul. You’re admiring a piece of art.”
