with J CARINO ART

@j.carino.art

I make work that explores my own personal journey with queerness, masculinity, and my relationship to other queer men and the natural world. It is often heavily patterned, richly colored, and influenced by decorative arts like textiles, mosaic, and art deco.

MARCO MORLAAS

beard care

I don’t listen people who say,“ Oh shave this beard, you look older with it.” I believe they are just jealous!

 

In fact, My white beard gave me a second youth.

JOSH GRIMM

health & wellness

I have taken it upon myself over the last ten years, since I turned 30, to grow into my mind. Meaning that I have spent a decade with a daily practice of meditations trying to live mindfully.

equestrian sport

There are differences between hunters and jumpers. Jumpers should be careful go fast and clean and execute tight turns for speed. Hunters on the other hand should go around on a rhythmical canter...

NATHAN WRIGHT

a writer during his mid-life crisis

Naturally, I read a lot of plays. The ironic thing about reading plays, of course, is that they are not meant to be read. To me, the fundamental thing about a play is that a play is not something that is meant to exist on the page or in your mind, but it is something that must live in time and space.  In my opinion, the best plays are the ones that can only fully function when plugged into this equation : time + space.

TIGERHEAT PRODUCTION

the inspiration

It is definitely a risquè design, but who cares? When you are happy with your body, you don't mind showing some irony or some fun! People wear it a lot also under some shorts or blue jeans and a jacket, that can be a stylish and fashionable compromise. Prints are very on-trend this year with Versace, Dolce&Gabbana, Gucci and the Kenzo jungle, I made my own with tiger and cheetah and a precious black lace version.

CHRIS YOUNG

martial arts

To me, each martial art is a philosophy: a perspective on life as well as an approach to fighting. They provide different ways of understanding the world and solving problems. I bring them together in my own personal view as seems appropriate for what I am doing at any given time. Ultimately, martial arts is the lens through which I see the world.

RYAN LYONS

injury & recovery

One of my porters “says oh sh*t!” and in midair I only hope to have enough rotation that I don't land head first upside down.  I end up landing back on the dry stage, missing the water, taking all the force to my face and chest. I slide unconscious into the water.

Samuel Gegen

recovery & sobriety

I started drinking in high school. I did occasionally get blacked out but not often. Then when I got to college the frequency and level of getting blacked out, not remembering, getting in trouble with the law and all that increased. My first realization as that this was problem was when I started to drink vodka early in the day, in the morning and by myself.

self-producing

Making Surfer's Paradise was a unique challenge because I not only produced and starred in it, but I also spearheaded an enormous Kickstarter campaign to raise money for post-production... and we shot in Prague, Czech Republic.

JOHN MACCONNELL

a portrait artist

Something important to remember too is to not let Instagram “likes" determine what you make. Make what you want to make. You should be dictating the content of your work. The number of likes does not determine your interests, what is quality, or even what people want to buy.

ANDREW MORRILL

a fitness journey

As a young man I hated my muscular legs because they made it difficult to fit into clothes.  It’s funny because now I think they are my best physical asset.  A lot about body development is accepting who and what you are and recognizing your own assets.

DAVID BALDWIN

flexible nutrition

What works for me might not work for someone else. A sustainable diet has to be packed full of foods the person actually enjoys eating. I love eggplant. Other people love broccoli. This is often why meal plans don’t work: you’re eating what someone else told you to eat, not what you’ve explored and found that you enjoy.

PATRICK SIMARD

His Story

In my youth I felt in order to live better in my new reality, I had to move to another city. I needed to study and understand myself better. It helped to understand the reality about the gay life. I needed time to rebalance my life, make new friends, and become an adult.
