erykah at viper room
my little thunderkitten STEPHEN BRUNER plays bass for ERYKAH BADU (among the many other bands he’s involved with) . after her show at the nokia theater last friday, we all headed to the viper room for the post-show jam session . lots of notables got on that tiny little stage for impromptu treats, but the most surprising moment was when MICHEL GONDRY got on the drums . the rest of MICHEL’s band (other members include: P.T. ANDERSON & JON BRION) was sadly not in attendance .

*special thanks to my goldenvoice girlies for always being on point: LINDSAY LYONS and LESLEY OLENIK

last thursday ANA and i traversed all of la .
what a good sport that little lady is ! straight from her shoot with RONY, ANA came along for the shoot STAMP and i conceptualized for RUBY .

off we hustled downtown to the studio where GUISEPPE and NATE were ready to shoot .
after the final photo shoot of the day (and a brief visit from the cops), i had all the girls involved in the shoot put on the same neon pink matte lipstick we had RUBY wear, and had STAMP capture the moment .
