This is the second issue to the greatest thing you’ll read this month. I don’t want to toot my own horn, but Issue one was AWESOME, and I’m so ready for you to read this issue. Now, if I were a mean soul, I would call out the people who didn’t show love, who cussed me out, and who told me it was stupid issue, BUT I’m not. I appericiate everyone’s input and I learn from it. I’m not prefect, and neither is PRINT. We’re just tumbleweed blowing in the wind...
In this issue, we put ART as our main focus. Visually, we want you to orgasm and then use that to make your own kind of art. We also have Brehon Williams, who is showing us his line (which was featured at VA Fashion Week), a BAD A (shut your mouth) hair school that is taking VA to NYC, a girl that make cool mother land jewerly, and we’re showing off the new collection of the Jacksons, the J5 collection. You know, I received a
phone call right after the first issue went live. It was a friend telling me I was about to start a war. Well you know I just like to say: If you can’t beat them, join them P E A C E, Tempus

P: How did you get into designing? B: [Laugh] I don’t know. Before, I wanted to design roller coasters and then from there I just got into fashion. P: What made you want to design roller coasters? B: I don’t know. I’m like a hardcore roller coaster. I don’t know where that came from either. In school, I was more in science and math. That’s all I have, I don’t have any art background. P: When did you learn how to make clothes? B: In 12th grade, my studio art teacher ask if I wanted to learn to know how to sew. I use to go to the thrift store, take clothes apart, study them, and out them back together. P: Did you go to a school for arts? B: I went to a regular high school. I was in the IB program, it’s the smart program but it’s more about science and math. P: Do you still want to design rollercoaster now? B: Yes, I love roller coaster P: What was the first piece you ever made that you knew ‘this is it’? B: When I first started, the pieces looked fine, but they [laugh] weren’t wearable, they weren’t made right. They were totally off, and so I think my first collection is really where I started actually making clothes close to the right way. That collection was in Jan/ Feburary 2009,

P: What did that look like? B: It was all denim, Blue and black denim, that was the first collection. I featured it in my first show that was in New York, first for everything. I was so scared saying ‘I’M NOT READY’, but then I realized maybe I can do this. They actually looked good, versus now how they were made, but they looked good. P: What is your favorite material? B: My asethic is Menswear for woman so I like stiff, sturdy materials because I like to make it soft. With the denim collection, I found a way to make it look feminine when though the material was very stiff, like cardboard. The only time I haven’t use hard fabric is with this collection, it totally different for me.
P: Which gender do you prefer making clothes for? B: Women, women you can do… it’s funny because now you can do more with woman, but I got my inspiration from the past. Back in history men overdressed woman. Men can dress back in the day and that’s where I get my inspiration. Back then, I would have rather dressed the men, but now I would do woman. P: Tell us about your new line? Tell us how you got the concept, the ideas? B: I wanted something that was different, first of all. I thought of the fabric I wanted and I wanted it to be soft and breathable, so I got an idea of air and sand. The idea of that air moves with sand and also sand and dirt, because sand is lighter and dirt is brown, gritty color. So I tried to keep it me and still a little different.

ICY GRAPE INCIDENT IS THE COOLEST LABEL AROUND!
P: Tell us the idea and concept when you first came up with Icy Grape Incident? T: I grew up in downtown Norfolk Urban graff was everywhere and I loved the scene and what it stood for It was a form of self expression that was anonymous , and I loved that That’s when I started writing on walls now I’m older and that’s not an option anymore I turned to expressing myself and thoughts on t-shirts and my Artist Line gives other local artist a chance to do the same It breaks away from mass produced nonsense its pure artist form P: so you were an graffiti artist earlier on, how long were you writing on walls? T: from when I was about 13 I lived behind the railroad tracks in norfolkwe would jump the fence and paint the trains as they slowed for intersections P: Dangerous! Living on edge! T: As a kid, we were bulletproof me and my friends enjoyed the secrecy it evolved and loved to hear reactions from people who have seen it P: What is Icy Grape Incident? Where did you get the name? T: Icy Grape itself is a Krylon Spay Paint color from the late 80’s It was the dopest color out then everyone wanted it, all the writers but it was limited production I liked the name, and the limited production, and it has street cred with other artist/write P: Nice. Is it still around today? T: No, unfortunately not. it was only made for a few years thats what added to its appeal though as an artist you wanted to be different or unique..color choice was the most used method of devoloping a name like..”where did you get that color!” Its what I wanted my clothing line to be about
P: Now, do you feature artist for your line or do you come up with the graphics yourself. I know Biff was one of your winners, will we see his work on shirts? T: Definitely I designed the hand style tee, as well as a few of the earlier tees I add my input to my artist, but I like to explore other peoples work as well.
Check Some of I.G.I. ‘s geaR!
P: What does fashion mean to you and how do you translate that to your line? T: Fashion to me is relative Fashion sounds trendy I’m not really a trendy person, and that’s not what we are about. I want people to like my work for what it is, Art on a different medium a shirt, canvas, wall, whatever.. I like unique P: Nice. So tell me where you’d like to see your line in times to come? Local? National? GLOBAL?! lol T: Really..I just want to be able to continue to do this for a while, the artist interaction and the local community support is worth more than anything else as long as people want new designs we will continue I like local markets It gives me a chance to have face to face interaction with my shops P: yeah, local also always feel so much more rewarding. T: It leads to better business relationships yes, and they are my original supporters P: Your so open to ideas. T: I don’t want to pigeon hole myself by only using my artwork..that’s not my goal. I want likeminded artist to have a chance also The artist line is just that I am currently working on the children’s line with my artwork and some of Biffs P: What does fashion mean to you and how do you translate that to your line? T: As far as Biff goes, he is an asset to the Icy Grape team. He has proven to be an ever expanding artist. He knows no limit His shirt is up Next in the artist line due out in December It is sure to please..real style and composure P: For the last question, do you have anything you want people to know about you and your brand? T:: Yes: Please check us out at Spaghetti Project in RVA and PONSHOP in Fredericksburg VA and on Facebook. We are proud to offer original Artist Line artwork on high quality clothing by local urban and street artist.

I love Newport News Libraries. Since I live in Bad News, 757, the only libraries I have been to have been locally, and I must say that they are improving very much every time I go in. More places to sit down and read (that’s a big one), open spaces, better catalog and book ordering systems, wireless, vending machines, magazines, peace of mind, and some of the same faces I’ve seen since I was a little girl. Without these libraries, I probably wouldn’t be at girl I am. Go to any of these great libraries and tell us about your favorite library near you!

<--Biff’s art for Icy Grape!
Graffitti artist and lover, and also Icy Grape’s newest featured artist, sits down and talks to us about his style, his life, and his love for grafitti art
Find BIFF on his Facebook
What’s up with the spray cans? I started writing graffiti, in the early 90s. A lot of my friends were into it as well. We bonded because of graffiti and art. We use to go write on buildings and all that stuff until I got arrested in ‘95. Now I keep all my art work in books for legal reasons. What was the story behind you getting arrested? I was underneath this bridge, me and some other guys, and we were out there painting, and this cop was walking through with some kids, off duty. He walked up on us, in the middle of it, no one ran. He probably would of chased us or gotten shot if we would have ran. We were in a down low spot and it was random that he walked up on us that day. I don’t get up on walls anymore, unfortunately.
What are you doing now with your art? I would love to do some commission pieces and I would love to find some businesses walls that are interested in actually doing some big productions, but as far as the illegal side, I’m not doing that. So tell us about how you got your name? Biff is my real name. It’s Biff Ryan Marshall. My mother wanted to name me Ryan Scott Marshall, my father wanted to name me Biff Jones. What of products you use to draw? Generally marker, sometimes I start with pencil, sometimes with straight marker. I drew characters at Busch Gardens for 12 years. I’ve been doing characters from age 18 until the present. Working there, you draw the final copy first. I draw your face in 3 minutes flat, with a sharpie basically. There were no room for mistakes, in which trained my hand to draw the final copy first. It’s just so easy for you.. Most of my artwork takes me 5 minutes or less, almost everything I’ve ever drawn. If it takes me any longer [to draw], than I lose interest. What are your Influences? I definitely get my artistic influences from working with other caricatures artist at Busch Gardens. I always enjoyed drawing and being creative. It’s something I’ve done to get the crazies out of my head. How would you explain your style? Simple. I always had a very simple style. My stuff is very cartoon like and two dimensional, and people seem to like it. It’s about what’s inside me. I tend to see the world as if everything was a cartoon. When I was a little kid people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, and I always said a cartoon character. Have you ever drawn on things other than paper and walls? Tattooing? I have dabbled in the tattoo industry in the last 10 years. 10 years ago I was actually tattooing a little more but now I’m trying to break back into that..

PRINT loves FOOD Want mad props in the office this season. Want to bring something good to the office holiday party? Bring Fat Girl Trapped in a Skinny Bodyâ€™s little piece of heaven - the Gingerbread Cake. JOY TO THE WORLD, cake has come :)
Turn for the recipe...
Gingerbread Cake 1 cup all purpose flour 1 cup whole wheat flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon ground ginger 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves 1/2 cup apple sauce 1/2 cup (105 grams) light brown sugar 2 large eggs Zest of 1 lemon 1/2 cup unsulphured molasses 1 cup 1% milk (you can use nonfat or whole also) Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place rack in center of oven. Grease your pan of
â€œLET THEM EAT CAKEâ€?
choice with non stick spray. Note: You have a variety of pan options: 24 Cupcake Pan (bake for only about 20 minutes) - 9 inch loaf pan - 9 inch round cake pan (bake for about 30-35 minutes). Set aside. In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, ground cinnamon, ginger and cloves. Set aside.
-- mARIE aNTOINETTE
In a separate bowl of your electric mixer, beat the applesauce and sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the lemon zest and molasses and beat to combine. Add the dry ingredients and milk, alternately, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Beat just until incorporated. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top with an offset spatula. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before removing cake from pan. Let cool completely and then frost (I just used chocolate frosting from a can for the little cake. Remember, it was 5:15 Saturday morning. Making gingerbread was enough of an accomplishment that early).

The line will be carried in prestigious boutiques and department stores worldwide. With over 150 million albums sold worldwide and having introduced the greatest artist of all-time, this collection is reflective of the brothersâ€™ legacy and the inspiration of music on fashion.

Did you know: The average person in the United States uses anywhere from 80-100 gallons of water per day. Flushing the toilet actually takes up the largest amount of this water.
People in our world don’t have any WATER, ya’ll
If this problem occured in the United States, we’d be the biggest babies of all. Water is nesscarry for life and without it we’d have no food, no animals, no earth, NO US! People around the world are plague with bad drinking water, or no water at all:
1 out of 6 people lack access to safe drinking water, namely 1.1 billion people, and more than 2 out of 6 lack adequate sanitation, namely 2.6 billion people (Estimation for 2002, by the WHO/UNICEF JMP, 2004). 3900 children die every day from water borne diseases (WHO 2004). Think about all the water you waste EVERYDAY, and think about the people who DON’T have water to waste like us. I know your probably going to pass this page and say “Whatever, at least I got water”...Understandable, but when you think about it, if it were you, would you want someone to just pass you by.

When I first walked into Rudy&Kelly Academy, I thought i walked into a different world. Everything looked so modern and upscale. This must be a high scale hair school/salon...
Ever dreamed of working at a high paced salon and becoming a stylist yourself? Well your in luck because Rudy & Kelly Academy, located in Virginia Beach, is a high profile hair school/salon waiting for you to apply. Before I went to visit the school I didn’t know anything about it, other than knowing a friend who worked there. Walking in really does put you a different world. They offered classes for all ages and classes dealing in Professional Development all the way to chemistry of the products and hair. This school is so cool they have their own salon built right in that looks like the backstage of a high fashion runway show. I was so impressed by all the students, dressed in black by the way, that I could hardly focus on my tour. These classes are intense, fun, and you won’t leave without being hands on, that’s important for any career. Starting dates for the 2011 year are: Jan 10, 2011, Mar 1, April 19, June 7, July 26, Sept 13, Nov 1. Each core class is about every 7 weeks. Transferring credits can only be accepted from other Paul Mitchell schools.

Salvatore Spano could
teach us a thing or two about hair. Being one of Rudy & Kelly Academyâ€™s teacher, a stylist himself, and one of our closest friend, he schools us on what he thinks is in (in the hair world) and what being a teacher really means to him...
So tell us how you started in hair? I started hair bout seven years ago. i was going to school to become a teacher, and knew i that i needed a better job to pay for school, so i went to rudy and kelly hair academy with the mind set of get in get out and get a job to go to school. after being in school for nine months i found a passion in this industry and decided to just pursue this job. When did you become a teacher? I became a teacher about a year ago. Do you like teaching more or cutting? Well those are actually my two worlds. i love the teaching aspect and my students find it amazing the knowledge and the things that i have done with my career. cutting though is my passion and my forte. so pursing that behind the chair more than others i knew at the school i wanted to be a paul mitchell cutting specialist. What do you see yourself doing in the future? I see myself joining the advance academy for cutting within paul mitchell. and what that is, is being a teacher that travels to other schools and teaches classes and certifies other learning leaders (teachers), and doing platform work with pm. Where do you see hair going in the future? Its so hard to answer that question cause hair changes faster than people blink, but what i see is more of a symmetry cuts and bolder colors which i am very stoked about. Tell us about your best moment as a stylist? A teacher? The best moment thus far behind the chair is doing hair at new york fashion week for christian siriono, and meeting him and hedi klum backstage and to have my work photographed for nyc fashion week. as a teacher the best ever is seeing a future professional thank you after they graduate and telling you that i am them mentor. What would you say your techinque is? Do you even have a signuture techique or look? My technique would be my cutting skills, give me a blank canvas and i can produce work as well as picaso. my signature look would be short victoria beckham bobs. love love love cutting them, and victoria secret looks for people who are ready to hit the town. Do you do ethnic hair? Yes i have a very steady clientel of ethnic hair, love doing relaxers and getting the trust of my clients. What are you favorite styles out now? Least favorite? My favorite styles are short edgy, funky, and textured hair. my leas favorite would be people who are stuck with the same cut. its time to update and look sexy and sassy What do you want people to know about you and your profession? I want people to know that I work very hard and i am very passionate about my cuts, colors, and blow outs. that if your ever in a funk you can always come to me, or if you have a stylist that wont do something new to come on in and lets have some fun. our industry is always growing and finding new ways to do things at a faster time or even for a reasonable price. to not be afraid to do something different cause its hair, it grows back..lol...
