Wine. One of my best friends. It’s there for me when I am celebrating at the height of happiness and it sits next to me when I am drinking away at my darkest most depressive thoughts. That’s what friends are for right? Well I am happy to introduce a place where you’ll find the most suited ‘grape-bottle-friends’ to take you through the highs, lows and even fit to your taste buds like no other...friends. This space is called Glassful, and I highly recommend you duck over to their website to see what they’re all about.
The Pixel Trade involved riding around the city on motorbikes (almost falling off on Williamsburg bridge), photographing the details and space of the Glassful store and finally roaming the streets and parks of Manhattan to get some lifestyle shots. Once it was all said and done, we drank our models... and some.
Head over to the Bazaar if you want to trade with Glassful too!

What was one of the most dangerous times of your life?
In Thailand I got trap in a very small wood boat, crossing between islands with a storm and 7 meter high waves…. I was scared, until I realized I couldn't do anything, so I enjoy the extreme movements on the boat. Thai people usually say: No danger, no fun. I understood that there.
