welcome

 to the colorful journal of Marissa Berrini, creative director, artist and curator living in Los Angeles. Launched in 2010, Marissa's online journal tells of adventures with her husband Sam, their fur kids, the occasional cocktail creation and lots of conversations with inspiring people. This blog serves to celebrate tiny victories, inspiration for those times you're stuck in a rut and bring together a community that wants more than a perfectly curated feed of eye candy. Sometimes you just got to throw it out there and see where it goes!

Donut doubles and animal portraiture? Yes, please! First off, I'm obsessed with animals so naturally I'm into this and how many times have you looked at your food and thought: this really looks like Aunt Sally? I have to admit, this happens to me quite oftenjust substitute the donut for odd shaped fruit and I swear you'll find George Constanza in every grocery store. Well, thankfully Brandon Voges, a photographer out of St. Louise, Missouri and part of the crew at Bruton || Stroube already shares a similar love for things that make life better. Coming from the agency world, you can see in Vogues' work that he's got storytelling master. His use of light is phenomenal and add in subject matters like weed beards, well that's a recipe for success. Check out his work on Behance here.  ArtSpeak: Brandon Vogues Donut Doubles
