Gallery Mondays: Damien Mitchell’s Peregrine Falcon

Remember that awesome Audubon Mural Project mural I saw a couple of months ago? The “Western Tanager” by Yu-baba? Well I found another one, this time a “Peregrine Falcon” by Australian street artist Damien Mitchell!

This mural can be found on St. Nicholas Ave. between W 147 and W 148 Street near the A, C, B, D station and M3 bus stop. I love how the falcon is depicted in mid-flight. Its eyes are also very captivating.

Watch Damien Mitchell paint the mural in the video below!

Gallery Mondays: Western Tanager by Yu-baba

Over the weekend I came across this beautiful mural in Washington Heights on the iron gate of Marina Dental Center.

Painted by Belarusian artist Yu-baba as part of the Audubon Mural Project, the mural features a gorgeous western tanager, an American songbird, surrounded by leaves and berries.

In collaboration with  Gitler &_____ Gallery, the National Audubon Society’s Audubon Mural Project brings awareness to the climate-threatened birds of our environment.

Needless to say, I’m going on a hunt for all the rest of these murals! There are 67 murals currently complete, with 247 left to be painted.

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Liza from Younger‘s Season 2 Premiere

Liza from Younger's Season 2 Premiere

It’s always entertaining to see how the fashion department on the set of TV Land’s Younger decide to dress 40-year-old Liza Miller (played by Sutton Foster) to have her look as if she were a millennial.

Season 2 of the show premiered last week, and I couldn’t resist featuring some of Liza’s style for this Wardrobe Wednesdays post. I’m particularly fond of this look, because as a fellow millennial in the publishing/editorial world, I sometimes go to work dressed like this.

She wears a very laid back look with a screen tee featuring a pencil-sketched bird, blue boot-cut jeans and a pair of coffee-colored boots. I actually had to watch some of the episode all over again just to catch her footwear!

Liza’s look is professionalized with a black vest/waistcoat, giving her boss no reason to suspect her real age. I mean, come on, what 40-year-old has time to find the perfect screen tee for a waistcoat?

Below are some items similar to what Liza is wearing in the episode.

Shirt:

1. Redbubble, $23.34

2. Redbubble, $22.40

Jeans:

3. Guess, $44.50 (on sale, reg. $89.00)

Gallery Mondays: URBANIMAL Graffiti on K&M Camera’s Van

k&m camera van

About two weeks ago, I saw this van parked on West 38th street in Midtown when I got out of work. First I saw the scary face on the back doors and then I saw the cute yellow bird on the left side of the van.

The van belongs to K&M Camera on Broadway. Below the company name is a signature that reads “URBANIMAL,” which is the name of a Danish-Italian graffiti artist that does trucks, vans, and canvas art.

I definitely like the left side of the van way better than the creepy eyed character on the back doors. I can’t tell if the bird’s yellow feathers are the objects surrounding the eyes and mouth on the back of the van, but I do like the dark water droplets around the bird.
