These snacks are EVERYTHING!

When my friends at Sipp asked me to make a dessert and cocktail pairing I knew just what to do. I’ve been obsessed with shaved ice since I was a kid. One of the best investments I’ve ever made was a shaved ice machine. They’re actually not that expensive. I got mine on Amazon. The only thing better than a sno-cone is a sno-cone with Sipp Mojo Berry soda and rum. I always love a salty nibble with a cocktail so I whipped up a batch of pretzels topped with my own “everything” blend… it tastes just like the topping on an everything bagel. You’re going to love it and use it on… well.. everything!

If you ask most people about design, they’ll tell you it’s seen, not heard. Pose that question to Ethan Rose, however, and he’ll put up a strong argument that sound is an integral part of design. The Portlander founded Parallel Studio in 2016 to help people integrate sound into their built environments. The studio’s creative team specializes in site-specific sound sculptures that define a space’s identity. “There’s been more interest in the past few years in creating experiences that connect people to stories in unique ways,” Rose explains. “When we first meet with clients and collaborators, we help them realize that sound is around us all the time, changing and informing our perceptions.”

The Art of Chaz Bojorquez

We welcome the living legend, the pioneering “Godfather” of modern Los Angeles “cholo-style” graffiti, Charles “Chaz” Bojórquez to this months’ cover. Bojórquez has been speaking the visual language and artistry of Chicano graffiti since 1969 and is acknowledged for taking his art form from the streets and transitioning it into the established art world. Thus succeeding in creating art that is both influential and impactful on multiple social levels, while forever staying true to his graffiti roots. Bojórquez was born in 1949 in East Los Angeles where he grew up and started writing, developing and cultivating the aesthetics of his distinctive graffiti style and signature lettering. In the ‘60’s, Bojórquez started preferring the use of brushes and paint and markers over spray paint. In 1969 Bojórquez created his most famed tag, Señor Suerte, inspired by Mexican folklore, an extremely iconic and important image of the Chicano urban art movement. Bojórquez attended Chouinard Art School (known today as Cal Arts) where he studied figure painting and ceramics and independently studied Asian calligraphy from Master Yun Chung Chiang (Master Chiang studied under Pu Ju, brother of the last Emperor of China). This is where he credits learning the fundamentals of what art is – “a foundation structuring ideas within your mind.” Bojórquez worked as a commercial artist in advertising and film, including logos for movies The Warriors and Turk 182 and master inking for The Empire Strikes Back, the Muppet movies, and James Bond. Chaz Bojórquez paintings are in numerous permanent museum collections including, The Smithsonian Institute, National Museum of American Art, LACMA, MOCA, National Hispanic Cultural Center and Laguna Art Museum.
