They say the best camera is the one you always have with you. Other than my iPhone, I’m blessed with toting around one of NYC-via-Belgium’s brightest Creative Directors and candid Ricoh moment capturer, Maxime Quoilin, with me at most times.
Borrow my +1 on this visual gangster’s backstage pass and enter his striking metropolitan cool aesthetic world of elusive DJs
at unforgettable parties
with old friends
like myself and DJ Slow
and in new cities
like the parts of yours yet to be discovered.
you’ll be hooked, bien sûr.

Izzy Tuason [The Dandy Project] and his printed dance shoes.
Love these earrings made by her own mum. Tiny cogs and micro machinery parts.

Launched with an art exhibit by Craig Costello at 18 Wooster – Spray Paint the Walls.
With Wendy Lam [nitrolicious.com], recently connected with her again in NYC for the first time in years.
Known this little miss for over a decade! Looking like a cutie pie in her American Apparel wool cape.
Susie G with her new 21 Jump Street bob haircut and friend, Clay Murphy.
I miss wearing these sequined shorts. Always accessorize with psychosis.
Lucky number 3.
Adorable baby girl. Have been noticing a lot of parents in the art crowd bringing their kids along. Coolest toddlers ever.
Band of beer.
CREEP killing it with their performance. Moody and enchanting within the painted space.
Lauren Dillard of CREEP. Skeleton leggings? Yes!
Kevin Leong [Fold Your Paper] and his baby, Change the Pomeranian. She was fresh out from the groomers. Can’t handle the cute.
According to Susie G, we had infiltrated Babe Fort Knox that evening. Mmhmm.

Art opening for photographer Steven Sebring. New York’s art crowd gathered for a once in a lifetime show and performance at Milk.
Coloured wooden blocks for pixelated portraits, punk rock pioneer performing poetry by the likes of Joey Ramone.
I got to see Patti Smith sing. With Michael Stipe.
I’m jealous of me. I fucking love New York.

I shook his hand, he held it. Apparently I knew this man. Apparently, I had fed him scotch on Halloween. Tiny bottle of Macallan twelve. Now I remember – he was dressed as a mummy, a toilet-paper-something-or-other. How could I have possibly known he was this dreamy underneath it all?
He took off his jeans, put a new pair on and left. Left me flustered.
He, Mike Billington, draws, paints and makes me laugh.
He has a book which you can purchase at Art Metropole.
And below, you’ll find more reasons why I find him adorable.
