Our beloved Element Advocate and renowned L.A. based artist Brooke Reidt has been hard at work surrounded by triangle canvases and wet paint brushes, prepping her art installation to be showcased at Design for Humanity July 25!!
Just a little sneak peek in on the action with some shots from her Instagram (@BeachGoth)… Can hardly wait to see the final project!!!
The inspiration behind the song and animation was done in homage to Beau Velasco, a very special, compassionate, full of love and creative man, as well as beloved friend to Amber and Japanther. Beau struggled with anxiety and depression, and three years ago, sadly, lost that fight. In honor of him, several of the over 2000 stop motion frames Amber B created for the music video will be sold to benefit a depression and anxiety charity.
If you live in the Los Angeles area, TONIGHT (April 25th) the “Come Back Home” music video will launch with Japantherat The Smell!
Regardless of whether or not you can make it tonight, you can still support the cause by purchasing the frames HERE!!

I don’t think I have ever been more stoked to welcome in the new years! It may or may not have something to do with coming up with a better new years resolution than the ones I have had in the past…like to shut the garage door every day, or put the milk back in the fridge… I have realized that those are ridiculously impossible resolutions to keep and I have landed on one that I KNOW can happen.
Here at the Paint Box Cafe we were able to reach our goal this Christmas of raising enough money to build a well in another country. Not only do we get to have the honor of being able to provide water for people in need but we actually get the privilege to build it. We were stoked to say the least. I couldn’t believe it was that easy. After being involved with this Christmas tradition after so many years I couldn’t believe that I had not thought of the idea earlier to continue giving to Living Water International year round! The season of giving should be every season! not just around Christmas.
After lots of brainstorming and I am excited to announce my new years resolution… Don’t worry, I am not asking you to help me to remember to close the garage door… BUT, I will need your help, pretty please! For the year 2012, it is my goal to raise enough money to build a well in another country; a goal I am dubbing “In Living Waters”. A portion of proceeds from the sale of my art will go towards the rebuilding of a water source in a third world country and therefore the gift of new life! Here are some of the first pieces created with this goal in mind!
Stay tuned to find out more on what’s to come and how you too can give!
