Got some decent shots of @tanzenofficial at their studio session the other day. This was also my first time behind a real camera and I happy to see it wasn’t a total failure.
TanZen keeps blowing my mind. If you haven’t already please check them out.

A couple weeks ago we had a quick surprise visit from @paperparasolpress and it was so great to take a little time to chat and catch up. We love working with independent artists because there is always a person behind the product!
When people ask for Chicago-themed art to give as a gift, @ariyamastudio is one of our top suggestions. Hiroshi Ariyama creates screen prints of everyday scenes in Chicago and its neighborhoods, and the views are often off-the-beaten-path yet familiar to Chicagoans! We love the bold use of color in his prints, and the wood panel is the perfect way to make the print pop off the wall.
We’re starting off with a bang.
The Story Theatre, a non-profit theatre company based in Chicago, IL, is so excited to announce its formation and the premiere of its inaugural production, Leave Me Alone! by Paul Michael Thomson. A contemporary, queer adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s Ivanov, Leave Me Alone! is a cheeky look into one man’s very sad existence. The Story is committed to creating language-based, narrative-driven theatre that seeks to pose questions, rather than supply answers, and we cannot wait to share this one with you.
To learn more and show your support, please visit the link in our bio. Check back for more storytelling soon!
Truth time 🙏
I was keeping this passion a secret from my family. But I recently came clean about what is now a huge part of my life. I sat each of them down and played them these 4 songs I created. I didn’t think it was going to matter as much as it did but it was magical seeing their reactions. My father’s shock when he heard me singing was dazzling. The feeling I felt when my sister said my song “Medina” was her favorite and made her feel at peace was enough to make me almost cry and the fact that my mom wants me to keep creating will only feed my drive. My mom may not have reacted the way I hoped at first but I’m not about to let that hold me down. It’s my choice to focus on the support and the love. La familia es todo 🙏 #musicislove#music#chicagomusic#focusonthepositive#idoitforyou#chicagolocal#lafamiliaestodo#insta#ilovemyfamily#nationalsiblingday#sisters 👭 #instadaily
