Dewey Nicks – The Lily Sarah Grace Annual Art Fair in LA this Sunday……May 1st!

Last year was super fun and lively and super fun for kids!

If you have kids please come and join us at MILK STUDIOS in Hollywood this Sunday – a fantastic day of lots of kid’s activities, art projects, games and have your picture taken by a world famous photographer!

Lily Sarah Grace brings Art and Creativity back into classrooms through a method of teaching that is dynamic, highly engaging and most importantly inclusive to all types of learners.

At the heart of everything they do are Lily, Sarah and Grace, three vibrant, intelligent, creative sisters, each with their own individual strengths. On Christmas day, 2011, 9-year-old Lily and her twin 7-year-old sisters Sarah and Grace, lost their lives in a fire in Stamford, Connecticut. To honor their lives, the sisters’ father Matthew Badger started Lily Sarah Grace to support what his daughters loved to do most in life: art.

Wonderful new work from Aaron’s contributing collaboration with this super cute kids line which is based in London has been in business since July 2014.

Their clothes are all 100% cottons and manufactured in Portugal and in India – where cottons and garment dyeing are taken seriously – according to their site.

Great stylish clothes for kids and also super practical!

Sam Jones | They have been busy at Off Camera!


I had the pleasure of visiting one of my favorite cities last week to see the advertising agencies and as always it was great to see all the familiar faces and meet new ones and meet the people in person that you talk to on the phone or know through email but have never met in person.

I love Chicago – the architecture – the food – and the people!

See you soon!
