happy last monday of july everyone! weren't we just celebrating fourth of july?! every time i create a new mini-view for you, it reminds me how fast the months are racing by. anyway, please help me welcome jared abe (pronounced ah-beh) to the blog. jared is an uber-talented friend (he is also family, but i assure you this relationship does not influence my opinion :) who creates unique video content for vans. (yes, thee vans…as in vans off the wall.) in his position, jared has traveled the world and met a slew of amazing artists. he has even had the opportunity to work along side a good friend he greatly admires, max wanger. (if you're unfamiliar with wanger's work, please feast your eyes on this magic.) recently, jared played a major role in developing a video series for offthewall.tv titled, pass the bucket, which i spoke about here and urge you to watch for a heavy dose of inspiration. need a recommendation? watch the video on amy purdy - you will come undone and think twice about any self-imposed limitations. (i know i did.)
i have a huge amount of respect for jared as he has taken it upon himself to learn all the tools of his trade and hone his style. he is self-taught and was born with a creative eye, that much is for certain. but please allow me to let jared elaborate in his own words. without further ado, herewith is jared's mini-view:
thank you so much for stopping by today, jared. i really appreciate the time you took to answer these questions and give us all a little peak into your creative world.
ok, i gave you a whole lot to chew on today. however, before i set you free, i have to wish my daughter, who is turning three today, a happy birthday! i bet you can guess where we are going today. happy monday everyone!
