Im excited to announce the launch of a new video series titled, "My AM Ritual"
For this series, we will be documenting people in and around the world of coffee - about their daily rituals. But more importantly - about that NewWork/NewHustle that drives them as they pursue their given craft.
I'm honored that for the first release, I am able to feature Fin Lee aka Lostboy Illustrations. She describes herself as a "queer first generation Korean American artist whose work spans identity, connections, community and desire." (I just freakin' copy/pasted that since I couldn't have said it any better) Her work has been commissioned by the likes of Lady Gaga, NY Times, Samsung and many others. Basically - she's legit!
I met Fin through the crazy cats at the LA Coffee Club. She had done a full scale mural for them a while back and we kept in touch, seeing each other around the coffee scene. Cut to my idea for this series and after going over the names of people that I would love to feature - hers was one of the first that came to mind.
I hope you enjoy this new section here on Americano Mondays. I'm editing the second feature as we speak. (or...as Im typing...I don't know) My hope with these interviews + films is inspire us all by sharing the stories of some amazingly talented people who are rocking out and doing their thing. In LA and beyond.
