I am a Jewish artist and I wanted to create a space to celebrate other Jewish artists + Jewish artwork in general. I created this Facebook group about a week ago and people have been flooding in ever since. You can discuss artwork, promote your shop, connect with other Jewish art lovers, and get inspired!

Feel free to join up and post stuff about your new artwork or favorite Jewish artist! http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=148997195121243

Come share in the fun!

I’ve always had a fascination with clothing, but in a different way than other fashion designers. I’m more fascinated by the very existence of clothing than in the subtle differences that appear on catwalks year after year. I mean, we’re wearing false skins; we’re all wearing costumes all the time! The businessman wears the businessman-costume, the indie kid wears the indie-kid-costume, the trucker wears the trucker-costume (although sometimes the indie-kid-costume is the same as the trucker-costume), etc… And people treat you differently depending on which costume you’ve selected! If we were all naked for a day, no one would know how to treat anyone else. I’d love to see that.

Because I see fashion design this way (as COSTUME design), you can probably figure out why my clothing looks like it does. If all clothing is a disguise, I’m not sure what my customers are disguising themselves as, but I’m very happy that they desire these disguises because I desire groceries!


(crazy shoes from China… ouch!! Yes, fashion is very interesting indeed)
