I just got back from my 4 days trip to Canada, and I gotta say I didn't want to leave. I've really grown closer to my Canadian friends and it made me think quite a bit about Miami and the people I know here. I consider myself attached to very FEW ones, and after 5 years this seems little weird. But living in South Beach is like this, you enjoy the weather, nature, beach and overall environment the most, when it comes to people though it's pretty shallow. Some are tourists, some just come and go, some are superficial, selfish, money oriented, the rest are good people who seem always too busy for anything out of their routine... eventually I fell in that category I think!
Anyway, going back to my Canadian time, I had a blast spending time before, during and after the Overxxxposed show, the main reason of my trip. I could see what it means to organize from scratch an event, set up an art gallery, stage, lights, bar, food, licenses, invitations and all the thousands details a show requires. Its a LOT of work. And I was glad to be there and help a little :)
The Overxxxposed show, for those who don't know it, is an event where fashion (ligerie/bikini), erotic photography and sexy art meet, I suggest you to check out the website :) Each Overxxxposed differs one from another, this one was definitely more focused on the art and exposition, more intimate with a smaller crowd, yet another success. The one before in February looked more like "Vegas Rehab", ahah crazier for sure. I didn't miss a chance to jump on the pole this time as well, you might have seen some pics on my facebook page lol
I was very happy to see friends like Vasko Obscura, Randal Martin, Jeremy Shortt and all the other great photographers who were there.
As in any GOOD party, someone at a certain point started to throw up, and it sounds odd but the scene inspired a drawing I did on the plane on my way home lol
There will be more footage of the event coming up. You definitely should attend the next one!
Lastly, a funny pic Paul Buceta took one morning while I was attacking the fridge... what a b...reakfast ;)
Now I'm gonna be in Miami for the rest of summer, I have friends and my mom visiting, I'll spend my time as tour guide lol, between beach and local attractions :) my training instead will be mostly weights, some cardio, pole dancing and floor work, stretching and foam rolling.
Hope u having a great summer!
