Backyard Bill

In a refreshing departure from both contrived celebrity fashion shoots and impersonal street safari style sites, Backyard Bill is a blog that showcases the personal predilictions of regular ol’ chic people. Choosing one subject for each post and then shooting them in beautiful real-world environments wearing their own clothes, photographer William Gentle creates delicate, naturalistic images that elevate to an art the seemingly simple genre of fashion portraiture.

Following each beguiling photo essay with a brief interview, Gentle’s work teases us with brief, yet somehow intimately revealing glimpses into the lives of these dapper New York denizens. Backyard Bill draws easy comparisons to stunning interior decoration documentary blog The Selby, whose eponymous creator, Todd Selby, has his own photo shoot on Backyard Bill.

Time for a Mark Gonzales Break

Published September 10, 2009 by Graham

Take five, you’ve earned it! Stop all that hard work just long enough to watch this rad clip of Mark Gonzales skating around the dreary streets of New York accompanied by the sounds of Ciccone Youth’s “MacBeth.” The Gonz never ceases to amaze. His entire existence is an ode to human beings’ limitless potential to create their own fun.

This video was originally included in a DVD supplement to The Journal in 2006.

The above image is the limited-edition double-sided full color poster that just popped up in our mailbox this morning. It’s an inspirational beaut’ from NYC via Vancouver professional drawer and font writer outer Robin Cameron. Robin has been treading around the free illustration circle for the past few years and in that time has put some phenomenal shows under her belt and supplied the world with a small library of pocket-sized literature. Stop in on her if you get a moment or two this afternoon and while you’re there pick up a poster… there’s only 500.
