A Simple List of Exciting Things:

September 6, 2017 by NJPainter

July + August were a little bit slow in terms of jacket sales, but that’s OK because I was secretly busy with some side projects and furiously building up my inventory. Here’s what’s going on:

1. I was tapped by Master & Dynamic, a high-end headphone company that found me on Instagram (!) to hand-paint a few custom headphones… namely, a pair for Wiz Khalifa.
My name isn’t associated with the headphones or the artwork, so I won’t be tagged or included in any credits. But if you see these pop up anywhere on the internet, holla’ at your girl!




2. All About Downtown is Jersey City’s biggest festival — they had 30,000+ attendees last year. It’s music, food, local vendors and businesses… just like all the other festivals you’ve been to this summer except that I’LL BE THERE WITH A BOOTH!

I’ve got over 55 jackets, a ton of clutches and even some special hand-lettered wall art ready for this event. Mom is coming to help me and I’ll be updating my FB/Insta that day with my exact location. Come by (and if you can’t come by, cross your fingers that everyone else is in the mood for fall wardrobe staples!)

3. When I was sitting at my corporate job racking my brain for a business idea I took a lot of inspiration from my favorite shop in Jersey City; Kanibal Home.
I love this store. I go there for cards. I go there for house warming gifts. I go there to browse for myself. It’s the store that our 10 foot tall living room art came from, which is how I come to know the shop’s super cool owner; Kristen. She does such an awesome job of curating all the quirky, interesting, funny, adorable things (from bath salts to kitchen towels to t-shirts) that you want to both buy for yourself and your best friend. And her business motto is “Work Hard & Play Nice” for goodness’ sake!


(Things you find at Kanibal Home: a 10×6′ prop from HBO’s ‘Boardwalk Empire,’ now in our living room)

So when I zeroed in on the painted leather jacket business, I imagined how cool it would be to have my jackets hanging in that store…
And on October 14th, they’ll be¬†displayed in a featured pop-up shop!
Look look! I’m even on the events calendar!

I am so excited and proud to be apart of this creative community and grateful for the supportive group of small business owners in Jersey City. I’m more jazzed about this opportunity than I have been about any other work I’ve accomplished in years. Again, come see me!
