This is how obsessed I am with chai lattes and animated portraits.

I’ve got a problem…I can’t seem to kick. These drinks are incredibly unhealthy yet I’m totally addicted. It’s been going on for years – please send help. And while you’re at it, have a look at these incredible animated portraits by Romain Laurent.

Chinatown Pretty is prettay, prettay good

I’m super excited to share Chinatown Pretty, a photo and interview project that documents the street-style of seniors living in San Francisco’s Chinatown. For the past year, Andria Lo and my pal Valerie Luu have been schmoozing with Chinatown residents as they went about their daily routines. What they discovered was the unique fashion that is equal parts unexpected, rad and as they like to say, “not just pretty, but Chinatown Pretty.”

I’ve always known Valerie to be involved in interesting projects, but these photos and the work that went into it, going as far as enlisting Cantonese translators, is something special. If you’re in SF, it’s all coming together in an exhibition and opening reception this Friday that pairs the photos with interviews to help tell a story. Stop by for the opening or check out the exhibit before the end of February.

Everyday Visual Joy from Wallcat

Born out of frustration with stagnant desktop backgrounds, our buddy Dustin Senos just released Wallcat, a simple + free desktop app for Mac that refreshes your screen each day. Dustin handpicks the images himself and offers three channels (Fresh Air, Structure, Gradients), but he’s been doing a fantastic job and I’ve found myself looking forward to the surprise each morning. It has also motivated me to keep my desktop uncluttered so I can fully enjoy each photo. Wallcat is taking suggestions for new future channels and looking for more photographers to work with, so if that’s you, give him a shout. Here’s to that side hustle.
