    Catch Up: Zalora Inspires & A Birthday

    I feel like this coming out of the woodwork thing is going to be happening pretty (un)often this year. How am I still alive I’m virtually drowning in work and obligations.

This time, it looks like Daryl brought this idea to another level by opening up a gallery to show for these residencies, and I was happy to be invited to its first gallery opening.
