I havent blogged in awhile, eight months to be exact but I feel its fitting now to post these. Without going into great details this blog is now asking me for money to post so I am trying to build a website so I can continue blogging. Anyways for the past three day have been intense, juggling many things at once is hard ( don’t know how you women do that on a daily basis). But one thing that has happened is I have watched a friend go though issues and question them as they happen (by no means are these issues as dramatic as they may seem). We have had long debates about life and the “way of life ” and the life we should live and it is funny how certain situations push us to either do things we have not done in a while or even do things we have never done. Ars Gratia Artis-“Art for Art sake” is a phrase I stumbled across a couple days ago and find it appropriate for now, simple because the person here by knowing whats on her CV by no means seems the artistic type but surrounds herself with it so much so that she arts for art sake. He is a friend I hold close, so much soul nicole.
Just a few more playful shots I did with Leo the same day I also did these shots These like everything I do were ver spontaneous and “right then it came to me”
Last year September I was asked to film the Cosy Showfor friends of a friends its was suppose to be straight “biz” nothing else. I really didnt want to do it but I only did because well August would of made it 6 month since I last worked a 9-5 (so yours truly was what you would say in a delicate way BROKE). My first show I was a bit anxious partly because i didnt know what to expect. At the time I had only known of one of the two guys that put the show on, Semo. Matthew the other guy seemed a bit of a panicky prat cause all he did was run around to confirm everything was good (which I later confirmed he actually was, naw am playing)
10 months down the line on Cosy Shows Birthday I have to give alot of respect to both guys especially Matthew, by far two of the most hardest and dedicated men I know in this country (yes I am still saying my visit to England is still just a visit I just decided while I am here I would go to university). Working with them has been a pleasure and they never hesitate to show there appreciation (I still have the New Years and Christmas card from them that I received my January pay from them). It is clear to who ever knows me for Cosy that Cosy is not my job, it has slowly taken over my life I dont just think of it every first tuesday of the month.
Here are a few clips of whats been happening at the cosy show
I asked by a good friend of mine to come down and watch a designer do a shoot, “Her name is Mona Mi” i was told. Went because of who invited me. Very enthusiastic and charismatic person that without a doubt seems to love what she does. I didnt use any pictures of her complete face simply because a couple days later I did a shoot of her with as the model for another designer she is close with. But for now viewers meet Mona Mi.
Met Josh couple months back from a friend of mine I study with. “Joshy boy” Is an actor/musician and you can see a vidI did with him couple months back called “Meeting the High Seas” heard his music and thought I just had to record. The pictures I actually did the same time as the video and also a Actors Monologue (which I cant release,, atleast just yet).
I like when I get to work with people like this. These pictures were taken months ago for a friend of mine magazine some of these pictures made i some didnt. some of these were some of my own personal ideas which was just a spur of the moment.
List of people that was involved: Gideon Cudjoe Kenke Danmole Meme The-O’fishal Poet
Liking the style especially with the black on black
Thing I like about the London is that it drives all talent to work together, If you were say a film maker looking for a musician to make a piece for a scene you would have to look far.

Now this is just the best pipe I have ever been seen “smoked”
