Rounding out the year with a few images from the 2018 Shades of blackness vol.2 calendar. This was such a passion project for me. Creating images of beautiful people inside and out surrounded by nature’s beautiful miracles called flowers. My amazing sister @jazziepleaze is the covergirl for December. I won’t bore you with how incredible my sister is but I will tell you this she has a way with words that will move you and give you clarity all while making it plain #makeitplainpreacher
@christenkeithmooney was the first portrait that I took for this project which really set the tone for the project and got me super juiced! The energy that was shared between us was very special. @anyanwu is such a special person and with little Zora how could you not be in love. @ishxgibbs bringing the much needed swag to the calendar @slaynick serving up the fiercest set of eyes! Looking forward to what 2019 has in store! It is going to be a major adventure! #naturalopulence #shadesofblackness #blacklivesmatter #happyholidays

If you must know ah bitch is just booked, busy, and blessed and truth be told these post take too damn long to write. I mean my toilet time is suppose to be for me and I am risking it all with the amount of time that I spend sitting on the toilet writing these posts. For heavens sake there is a real threat of hemorrhoids knocking at my backdoor, but as they say do it for the gram right.... shit gurl please my body may be falling apart one rickety joint after another, but if there is one place I am trying to keep it right and tight it would be my Phat 🍑... well enough about me let’s talk about Bertha’s big beautiful ass serving up a major Platinum blow out with a dose of all I want for Christmas is approx 63 New Zealand winter white big as a softball bowl of cream peonies, 75 white blown open Tibet roses, some exotic anthuriums from another part of the world arranged by @bloomandplume of course, in a simple ashy grey almost black but not really concrete bowl (cause ah bitch is chic AF and I want to make sure it takes at least 2 people to move it around #facts #luxury or as we call it at the office #naturalopulence ) and call it a day cause I know you love me and your riding and you’ll never ever leave from beside me, and clearly this is the only way to prove it kind of realness. Bertha got caught up in a photo shoot before reaching her final destination and was very thrown off by the photographers direction. Bertha said out loud “Is this Tan hand trying to control my black/grey body or is this Tan hand actually trying to help ah sistah out”, cause you know it’s real hard to tell these days and we can’t just have anybody touching up on this voluptuous platinum masterpiece... cause none of us want to call Al Sharpton or Michelle Obama to chin check dat ass, but she Will if she have to... #blacklivesmatter #tryagain #dustitoff #aaliyah #wemissyou #bookedandbusy #alliwantforchristmas #nohemroids #bodypositive #meandMariah #30rock #bemyrock #solidasarock #rockpaperscissors #noroids #justloads of #peonies #whitepeonies #whyitgottobewhite

This show was mastermind by the amazing curator @hmolesworth thank you for this magical opportunity I am very humbled and grateful.

Honey, I can barely handle Azul Liana Alvarez right now, serving up all the Latinx gender neutral realness. Talking bout nothing to see here just a bad bitch being bad, get in my way and I’ll cut dat ass with my thistle bangs, i dare you to say somethin dumb cause my double masters degree in Human Resources will slay a bitch with a six hour health and safety seminar on gender equality CPR practices in the workplace. I’m sick and tired of telling people that my name was Azul Liana 22 years before Blue Ivy damnit, and if you look back at me one more got damn time I’m gonna rip this stunningly sophisticated heirloom air plant fascinator off my head and beat the shit out of you. Well damn Azul, you are not very approachable with that attitude... I’m not trying to be, that is your problem not mine. My big beautiful ass is over here serving major masc for masc but a little fem, lookin dope AF but y’all bitches treatin me like baking soda, so no I’m not havin it!I’m not in the business of making sense so that is for you to deal with. Woah Azul you feelin some type of way, feeling kinda blue? First of all i hate that phrase. Can you not clearly articulate your feelings? And if you must know I recently got kinda dumped before anything even started and my name is fucking Azul... no habla español? Of course I got a little Daria in me, got ah baby goth vibe, but I also got that tropical Bluejay cranes in the sky on holiday in Jamaica sans the sun thing going on too. Look I’m going to tell you like I told them other bitches, don’t come for me unless I send for you cause I am not the one Kim, I will flip you over the couch. Azul you are so angry tho... Bitch I don’t give a fuck what you think or say cause I met Beyonce and if you can’t stand for something you will fall for anything #justdoit #micdrop #donttrymebitch #youtriedit #hardheaded #hard #blueivy #azulhiendra #latinx #putxs

Everybody doesn’t like something, but nobody does it like Rosa Lee or me for that matter. Serving up all the sweet decadence of a jelly filled pumpkin Turkish delight topped with a lovely tahini sauce, to the flakiness of a fresh warm French biscuit with butter, cherry jam and a few wasps flying around because apparently they like ah French biscuit too, rolling into the full robust all natural dark chocolate of my skin after soaking in a lavender and @lelabofragrances oil bubble bath in my Paris hotel while chomping on other chocolate treats, and to finish with a side of Esther Williams in a low-budget no water having Busby Berkeley production of “Gold Diggers of Echo Park Adjacent Because An Evening Bag is A Must, No Lady is Sure at Night”. In this opening scene we find Rosa Lee and Maria are attempting to hide from the cops in plain sight by blending in with the landscape as an urban Greek goddess sculpture that been kissed by the sun ever so slightly atop a bolt of @hommeplisse_isseymiyake millennial pink fabric next to a raggedy ass lamp post and a bike rack (off screen)... Question is do you think the cops will find them or are they serving up enough passing realness? #whatjusthappened #whereisshetho #vacationrecap #howisshetho #blessedanfhighlyfavored #bookedandblessed #backtowork #backtoschool #backtoblack #backtoback #backfat #putyourbackintoit #feelingthefantasy #blackboymagic

Gurl Keisha Sweats (Keith Sweat’s bastard child that he don’t claim) and I are just trying to piece it together in this damn here heat... this global warming situation is real AF. Y’all out here thinking that banning straws is going to solve the problem, when you need to stawp drinking almond milk as your dairy alternative because they use more water to grow them little bitches than all of us combined... why am I so mad? Why the straws? Gurl I’m FUCKING HOT and I ain’t in the business of making sense and I can’t escape it, it feels like hell, it smells like hell, so naturally it brings the hell devil out in me and the fact of the matter is, I just really like straws damnit and I’m allergic to nuts so i don’t give a shit about them, even tho i miss peanut butter and make an exception for male nuts... #canyoukeepup #babyboymakemelosemybreath cause it’s fucking HOT... Anyway I digress, Keisha out here lookin like my plus size daddy going for a workout in one of them make ya sweat sweatsuits in the middle of this heat wave in an effort to burn extra calories to get his last minute summer body before it’s over, but instead he’s at urgent care with an IV in his arm recovering from passing out after dehydration because this wasn’t even a good idea in theory, but the heat will have you making some very questionable decisions. Keisha’s Hair on the other hand stayed all the way on Fleek while that lower lip was serving up a little Whitney Houston performing the national anthem at the new Ebeneezer Baptist Church Little League picnic fellowship with her beads of sweat dripping from it kind of realness. Meanwhile I’m over here trying to write this post with titty sweat stains on my shirt 🤦🏾‍♀️ #hotproblems #hotpeopleproblems #hotandbothered #captainsaveahoe #hellonearth #globalwarming #peacebewithyou #mahatmagandhi #keishadoyouloveme #no #itskiki

Thank Gawd it was overcast cause the lighting and temperature made for a delightful time surprising people with a unexpected flower installation @melrosetradingpost and handing out mini bouquets (ba dum dum ching) get it Mini bouquets because they were tiny and because @miniusa paid for them. What cracked me up the most was trying to give them away at first people were like you ain’t tricking me with no free bouquet cause ain’t nothin free in America, well the gag was they were actually free and once people figured that out there was a line around the car... lol people are somethin else... and don’t get me started on the picky people picking out they free bouquet... okay girl I see you... lol
All jokes aside I really enjoyed being able to share the type of work that we love to do with the general public. It is so rare that we get this opportunity.

Throwing it back to the beginning of pride month where I’m serving up a full moon of chocolate gay ass in front of Trianna Tropix, the paradise pride princess for the Mayor’s annual pride kick off party. Trianna is looking good in her painted fantasy and I look aight with my new large and in charge back rolled body... lol. It has taken me a minute to post about this because I have very complicated feelings about pride that I don’t know how to articulate fully, but that has never stopped me from trying... I figured we will figure it out together so here we go. I do my best to live my best life both online and in real life, but it ain’t always cute. It is very difficult being an out and proud black man in this country where everyone loves you for being bold and unique but don’t get the sense that you are offered the same love romantically. The performance of kumbaya in our community is sometimes hard to reconcile when you feel alone and not seen. By no means am I a victim but I also feel like I am not the only person having this experience so I wanted to put it out there... I mean look @andreltalley a man that dedicated his life to Fashion and making others look and be great and he says he has never been in love that gives me pause... also the idea that pride month is becoming a commodity is very strange (i mean i bought some pride Nike’s so I’m not above it) why is it that we have to buy our pride or our pride can be purchased? The people that really spoke out for our rights were the folks that were super marginalized and the people that seem to benefit the most from it are main stream... Anyway there are a lot of thoughts here that are still being rendered but i thought it was important to put it out there maybe to inspire some dialog and I haven’t been able to kick these thoughts to the curb making it difficult to work on other more fun posts out because i needed to start to address this in my own way... #thoughts #happypride #blacklivesmatter #blackgaylivesmatter #youmatter #backrollsmatter #triannamatters #beingseenmatters #beinglovedmatters #feelinglovereallymatter #shititallmatters #lifeiswork #getintoit

I am just over the rainbow with this installation lol that we did for @barneysny for #thedropLA event that they are having this weekend! My excitement is multi layered... Barneys was my first job out of college i started the Monday after Mother’s Day in 2005 working in the home department, but i quickly found my calling in the display department where I really learned how start applying my creativity and using my expensive ass art degree. I then went on to work for @juicycouture for a long time in the display dept where I ran the art department. Juicy went thru a lot of changes and I no longer made the cut and got laid off. I took my severance package and started @bloomandplume . So now the crazy part (aside from that dog standing on his hind legs for 20 secs just lookin cute AF) The lady that laid me off at juicy (one of the nicest things a person could have done for me because I couldn’t make the leap myself) is the person that brought me Back to Barneys to do this installation! I mean the full circle of it all is just too much! I had such a blast working on this project, it really meant a lot to me! If you are around go check it out (but most likely when this shows up in your feed it will be long gone #whyinstagram.

Dear Cousin Carolina,
Happy Mother’s Day. I can’t wait to hear about your trip to India to see your friend. He has such a funny name. Bhagwan. I like the videos of you dancing. But why don’t the girls have shirts on? And why do you only wear warm colors? Mom says it’s because you are full of hot air and need to cool it. You can borrow my fan if you’re too hot. If you stand in front of it and sing, it sounds like a creepy old man telling you what to do. You should try it!
Love,
Elyse

You know they bougie AF and be having all kinds of nice fancy things to buy, see and luxuriate in which means I want in #hello and gurl when I found out miss @kellywearstler designed the damn mall I about passed out. I really was transported into another world of mixed metals, mixed stones, mixed woods, and mixed people. Who knew? I didn’t either, but now you can go check it out fo yo-self. This may be a little embarrassing for a person that has lived in Los Angeles for 17 years, but I had my first @randysdonutsla while I was there, they got a little stand over by the @apple store, I mean it doesn’t have the iconic donut sculpture on top (I don’t think Miss Kelly was having any of that) but the donuts are next level #bombaf .

Happy Earth Day everybody.... Wait that was like two days ago...

Happy Earth Day everybody.... Wait that was like two days ago... I mean does it matter, Instagrams’s brilliant algorithm doesn’t deliver your info chronologically anyway, and not only that I no longer feel safe being on time or early as I may be arrested for no damn reason and I don’t want to tarnish my pristine criminal record if you know what I mean, so get a grip girl, stop being obliviously silent cause it’s hurting me and people that look like me, and get into it because we all need to get along and work together to make the earth a better place and besides that, my girl @eromomen is giving you all the Earth day black goddess, black girl magic, dark and lovely kind of realness that you will need for the rest of the month, year/the rest of your life with all of this out of control gorgeousness that she exudes. @eromomen and I have such a beautiful exchange when we shoot together it really feels magical, not to mention the insane Set that we created for our shades of blackness vol.2 April shoot still available on iTunes #happyearthday #wecametoslay #causeislay #causeyouslay #staywoke #beAAngrywhitewomen #speakup #saysomething #changeneeded #goodnightandgodbless

My girl Yakemia Ann TT but people around the office call her Kemia ATT is serving up some Southern comfort executive realness without the title, The corner office, because it’s always the people at the bottom that holds it all together but never get the recognition or the cute paycheck so that she can show up in her @chanelofficial suit, @wolford tights, and @ferragamo chunky heeled low pumps. Instead she just has enough to get her 22”: Long and wavy thank you, 3” fantasy nails (pencil eraser typing game #onfleek #dafuck ), @beatsbydre for @supremenewyork for @louisvuitton limited edition headphones with an extendable mic for the ultimate in sound, looks and functionality, and her @michaelkors bucket bag with gold hardware kind of realness. But if you think that stops her from being the bell of the call center you wrong. My girl Kemia let me have it with the best customer service I have ever received calling into @att . I mean she just put her big voluminous Flower curls in a ponytail, busted out that pencil eraser and got to work and made it happen, which was a first cause every time I call in I get the worst impersonal customer service I have ever experienced. Calling in talking to an automated man who says he can help me then he can’t, then he transfers me to a lady in another country who really don’t know what’s happening, to then transfer me to another women in another country who makes me explain my situation all over again just to end up with no answers and 2 hours of my life gone. My heart goes out to the people that have to take these calls cause it’s not them it’s the system, but this bad system has been consistent for the last five or six years, pushing me to cancel all of my service with them after about 15 years #byebitch . But Kemia came in to save the day and at least got me to keep my cell service with them for one more month. Thank you @kemiaaa_ for being the bomb! I hope @att lifts you up and gives you the props and the pay grade that you deserve! #yougogirl #youbetterwork #literally #propstoyamama #basedonatruestory #atttriedit #toobigandfailing #clapback #tistheseason #comethru #blacklivesmatter #thankyou #Kemia

Happy Easter everybody! My niece Elyse is serving up some baby sophistication in her @dolcegabbana fuchsia lady dress with daisy embroidery and couture headpiece to match made by her hella gay uncle (me of course) who forced her into this oh no big deal, but major production photoshoot cause i gotta get the shot to make the purchase of this absurdly expensive dress (even though I got it at the outlet shit was still expensive, shout out to the cabezon outlets) worth it on this beautiful Easter Sunday in my little man made fantasy garden in the lobby of the @bloomandplume studio trying to get the little bit of natural light that i have to work with, when she would much rather be writing lyrics or a melody to a song, writing and illustrating a book, or be in more regular grown folks business, I mean anything but taking this photo... lol But she puts up with me. I’m not super big on holidays or traditions, but dressing my niece up reminds me of the production that would go into getting my family and specifically my sister ready for easter growing up. My mom and my grandmother use to collaborate to make the most elaborate outfits for my sister. They were always spectacular show stoppers. I used to love watching them create such magic. All of the love and creativity that went into it making this baby masterpieces. This is my little way of keeping that tradition alive. Last night when I was making that headpiece i felt just like my mom crafting at the ninth hour to get the details perfect. Those moments really impacted my creative process of today! So to my mom and my grandmother this is my way of giving you your flowers while you can smell them! #respect #generations #legacy #blackgirlmagic #flowergirl #blackgarden #demicouture #babyeleganza #happyeaster

Meanwhile back at the office the @bloomandplume team is holding it down got Lavender Lawson letting all of these little heifers know who is the fairest of them all, which should be obvious from the rocks that she’s got, but she wanted to show the softer, the more nude rose, the more lavender shades, the more sweet pea sides of her eleganza that people don’t get to see everyday cause they ain’t got a bomb ass house in Malibu and a big ass mirror that can take this kind of drama on Tuesday kind of realness #keepingupwiththekardashians #ornot #thelookformore #doyoulikeit #iloveit #igotitcouture #bloop #bomb #betterlucknexttime #naturalopulence
