The Willard Wigan Story “We disregard the small things in life and we don’t believe things exist unless it’s large”.
Willard Wigan, Microscopic artist born in Birmingham, England. Willard sculpts (left), Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt from 2 sticks of lipstick, ladies now you know what to do with your used lipstick, turn them into works of art. As a child suffering from learning difficulties and dyslexia, Wigan would create works of art that were unable to be seen by the naked eye. The minute designs as he would call them would be an escape from all of the criticism by his teachers and peers pertaining to his learning difficulties, Willard began creating miniature art only visible through a microscope smaller than 0.005 and 0.0002 tall. Willard would often drift as a kid to making shoes, furniture and homes for ants and other insects. Willard states “We disregard the small things in life and we don‟t believe things exist unless it‟s large”. Many folks around the world line up to view the amazingly small world which stems from a kid that literally thought and created for the small and “small is beautiful” in the world of Willard Wigan. The LAVISH Magazine caught up with the microscopic artist recently. It is true that some compare Wigan as the eighth wonder of the world. Things we don‟t see with the naked eye appear massive to Wigan. Continue Next Page “Greatness Happens”
Wigan mainly works after midnights where the mood is calm when there are no distractions and also less static from traffic vibration to disturb his masterful works of miniature art. Wigan states “There have been many times that I hadn‟t reached the deep relaxed state of mind to work, I actually inhaled the artwork”. He has to remain so calm to slow his heart and breathing to a meditative state to sculpt between each heart beat, carefully sculpting the unimaginable microscopic works of art. “Seeing is believing”, that‟s the public‟s response after looking through the microscope, you‟re actually blown away from the detail, the scale of the artwork, and the time it takes to sculpt such minute artwork. It‟s not uncommon for Wigan to work through the night using a carving tool and a magnifying glass that has been made for him by a British company which makes precision instruments for surgical hospitals. Wigan has sculpted many celebrity minute made character artworks for Shaquille O‟Neal, Oprah and Disney‟s Alice and Wonderland. Please Continue
(Left), Wigan unveils the First Family in a needle thread hole. That‟s right, look twice at President Obama, Malia, Natosha and First Lady Michelle in a needle thread hole. Wigan has also microscopic artworks of The Statue of Liberty, The Thrilla in Manila boxing match between Sunny Lister and Cassius Clay. Wigan‟s work has been purchased by Prince Charles and Mike Tyson are among those who that have purchased a Wigan sculpture, which sales for a minimum of $40,000. Creating miniature artwork has made Wigan a millionaire, his raw material has been used from specs of gold to nylon fibers extracted from carpet. When he is to paint the artwork, he takes a single hair from a dead fly. Each artwork takes up to 3 months to complete and when finished, it‟s mounted in a dome like transparent bottle. Unable to be seen with the naked eye, the dome can be mounted on the wall, table top or free standing display to shock your guest. Wigan states, “My mother was a great influence to me, and often encouraged me to create smaller and if I kept creating smaller things, my artwork and I would become larger”. You can view Wigan‟s works of art in galleries coming soon to America and abroad. It was a pleasure interviewing Mr. Wigan, and as the old saying goes “just because you can‟t see something, doesn‟t mean that it‟s not there”.

Worldâ€™s Most Expensive Dog s
The 11-month-old, 180-pound pup, aptly named "Hong Dong," meaning "Big Splash" in Chinese, (pictured left) has become the most expensive dog on the planet after a wealthy coal industrialist from China recently procured him for a little more than $1.5 million. This ancient guarding breed with its unmistakable bright reddishbrown fur, has recently become something of a status symbol among China's uber-wealthy class. Reputedly owned by Genghis Khan and Lord Buddha, the Red Tibetan Mastiff is viewed as a "pure Chinese" breed because of its well-documented history and nearly exclusive Chinese population. These dogs are also considered one of the oldest pure breeds in the world. Less than 20 are reported to remain in Tibet. SFGate.com

What’s New Atlanta?
LUMIERE HOME CINEMA Imagine a combination of sound and picture that makes any music producer or film director salivate at the screen as every element of their work is captured, from the soft echo of a pin drop to the rumbling power of an explosion. Visualize yourself amerced into the screen as you experience every emotion from the outside looking in. Now picture yourself dragging, with a bowl of perfectly popped popcorn in hand and your favorite throw over your forearm, to a room custom made for you by 6 brilliant minds with decades of cinema experience…your time is your own…one room just for you (and family, friends or associates if you choose) with the quality in power of a 700 seat cinema theatre, but better because of the intimacy of being in your own home. Lumiere Home Cinema crafts and orchestrates million dollar custom home theatre systems that make you never want or have to leave the estate. The quality of home theatre created by the guys of Lumiere is manifest by their love for the science of system and design as well as their excitement for the thrill of crafting an amazing product that will leave your jaw at the floor.
How do I know? I was invited to meet with Philipe Rosak at the Lumiere Home Cinema studio, in the heart of Atlanta, to see the process and experience the Lumiere system. These are no typical surround sound systems you set up from a box. Lumiere Home Cinema has a diverse clientele from music artists and musicians (like, Akon) to billionaire real estate moguls. But as high profile as their clientele may be, the experience from Lumiere systems will immediately bring any power magnate back down to earth. “Every step in bringing the magic of Lumiere into being is crucial,” says team Lumiere…”The final step, and the best step of all, is for the Lumiere to change someone‟s life. And our work is done”. Enough said.

“First in Flight” Kimberly Anydike Los Angeles, CA
By: Maurice A. Morris
First African American Pilot to fly transcontinental Kimberly Anydyke is no ordinary kid by any means. Born in Los Angeles in 1994, Kimberly Anyadike never remembers a time in her fifteen years she wasn‟t interested in flying. Her passion for aviation began with a 20-minute demo flight at Tomorrow‟s Aeronautical Museum, a flight school and youth mentoring center in Compton, CA. Kimberly washed airplanes and did other tasks to earn “museum dollars” that she traded in for flight lessons. Among the mentors available to kids in the program are several Tuskegee Airmen, who Kimberly has been immensely inspired by. Recently, accompanied by safety pilot Ronell Norman as well as Tuskegee Airman, Levi Thornhill after whom the airplane was named, took a flight from Compton, CA to Newport News, VA to break a record to be the very first African American women to ever fly a single-engine airplane across country.
The most important stop was the stop in Washington, DC, where Anydike and Thornhill was greeted and joined by Founder Robin Petagrave, actor John Schneider (Bo Duke from TV‟s Dukes of Hazard) Emmy Award winning actor Lou Gosset Jr., reality TV‟s Omarossa and others. All were on location to personally thank the California dignitaries for their help and support in obtaining a funding package for (TAM), recently approved by President Obama. Petagrave stresses the importance of history, heritage and legacy by educating children about the Airmen. Each of the (TAM) airfleet is named after, dedicated to and autographed by different Tuskegee Airmen who often visit (TAM) center.
The trip was sponsored by Tomorrows Aeronautical Museum (TAM) which provides scholarships and after-school programs for young inspiring pilots and at-risk youth. Kimberly has been a part of the Compton, CA Airport-based program since the age of 12.
A fundraising gala celebrating Anyadike‟s accomplishments followed, giving the public an opportunity to meet and greet heroes of the past, present and future including keynote speaker Mae Jemison, NASA‟s first African-American female astronaut. The star-studded event included dinner and an auction with many celebrity-donated items. The gala was held in honor of the Tuskegee Airmen at the World War II aviationthemed restaurant the Proud Bird in Los Angeles recently.
The 10 day trip had several stops to allow other Tuskegee Airman across the country to autograph the airplane so that their spirits would always fly with the students.

Heesen Super Yacht
Heesen Yachts Heesen Yachts is proud to announce that the first yacht in its 55-metre semidisplacement series was launched at the shipyard in Oss, The Netherlands recently.
Photo‟s: Emilio Bianchi
The discreet luxury of Quinta Essentia‟s interior was conceived by interior designer Ken Freivokh and further development by Michela Reverberi, who was responsible for the detailing and interior decoration. Commenting on this design cooperation, Nakhimov‟s principal, Sergei Dorboserdov explained: “Ken was asked to create a futuristic interior in the minimalist style and while this resulted in an extremely attractive and conceptual design, the owners felt that the mode style was too stark. Quinta Essentia‟s design offers some notably luxurious features, such as the largest owners‟ stateroom seen on any of Heesen‟s yachts, which has been a personal input of the owner. In size it is comparable to those found on yachts of over 80 metres, while she is also the first in the Heesen fleet to sport a tender bay that can be flooded to allow easy launching and recovery of the tenders, and a swimming pool on the main deck that is filled by a waterfall. The gym and spa facilities, including a steam room and a massage room, play a key role on the sun deck.

LAVISH Spotlight, TRON Lightcycle
Press Play at TheLavishMagazine.com
The Tron Light Cycle: From the Movie Screen to Your Driveway The Tron light cycle, the iconic virtual vehicle featured in the movie Tron: Legacy, has transcended beyond futuristic films and into reality – thanks to the Parker Brothers and their remarkable ability to make the mechanically and visually impossible, well … possible. “We were told the Tron light cycle was impossible to build, so my brother and I wanted to take on that challenge,” says Marc Parker, engineering and fabrication specialist, Parker Brothers Choppers. Parker Brothers Choppers is the Florida based bike shop responsible for creating the real-version of the Tron light cycle. “The most difficult aspect of executing the design of the bike was making it fully functional, while remaining true to its sci-fi vision,” explains Parker. A first of its kind, the 8 feet long, 26 inch wide futuristic ride bolsters a top speed of up to 120 mph. There will only be 10 Tron light cycles produced and several have already been purchased, including one by the Prince of Saudi Arabia. The bike was introduced by The LAVISH Magazine and Rozy Negusei to the hip-hop, mega-superstars Lil‟ Wayne and Birdman, and is featured in their music video “Fire Flame Remix”. The Tron light cycle will be available for limited purchase and will cost buyers approximately $75,000 - $105,000. Purchase your one of a kind TRON Lightcycle at: LAVISHExchange.com

Art of Kinetik launches Super Yacht 2011
Art of Kinetik was founded in late 2007 with a vision to create a new kind of luxury boats, marrying timeless materials such as mahogany, teak, stainless steel and leather to modern progressive design. Our focus is on creating a new way of living on the water, with interior design and space more often found in fine homes, and functions in line with a contemporary style of living.
Hedonist and Mazokist are just two models in a collection of boats ranging from10m to 30m that we are planning to launch over the coming years. They both follow the same philosophy taking either design or concept influences from the past, but making them both, in terms of technology, design and function as yachts, consistent with modern way of living and contemporary sensibilities of aesthetics and function.
Art of Kinetik gives its clients something that no other shipyard can, which is a unique sense of style, design, quality and luxury, with a real ability to customize the boat to their needs and tastes. This has so far not been possible in the segment of the market, and a privilege offered only to superyacht buyers. Our plans for the future are in line with the philosophy of our inception â€“ to produce and tailor unique, beautiful and high quality yachts for our clients in the range of 10m to 30m. Our focus is not on volumes but rather on creating unique yachts that will stand the test of time. Artofkinetik.com
