I had the honor to be part of a program called PUSH. Began by Vince Hungate of Essential2Life, PUSH is structured to instill marketable skills in youth from low-income areas. These skills will enable these youth to pursue careers in fields that they would not have been exposed to due to the lack of opportunities present. Because of the unsuccessful education reform program, No Child Left Behind, the art classes are usually the first to get cut. Push allows teenagers from all around the Atlanta area to pursue different creative outlets and at the same time receive school credit.
This was the third Photoshop class that we’ve had so far and I have to say that these kids have gone beyond what I expected. They have done some amazing stuff for only have been working with the program for three days and yes their designs even have a concept. We have been working on individual posters that will be printed in limited edition and sold to raise money for the program.
Thanks to everyone who came out to show us love at El Bar last night. Special thanks to Rob Wonder for letting us have the event at our favorite hang out. We’re looking forward to more events in conjunction with the EL. We’ll have content up real soon at wearetheprocess.com
We just got back from our press check of the PROCESS line in Athens. Ross Martin borrowed Jorge’s video camera without asking so he could document our day. I have a feeling this is the first of many video blogs from Ross, as long as Jorge doesn’t mind.
We’re producing our lookbook in an unorthodox manner by asking ATLiens to come out to our favorite spot, El Bar, for a night of mayhem on camera. Here are the details.

These are the final photos of our Medusa Armada Installation at Halo Lounge last Thursday. I hardly realized how quickly the evening went by between trying Halo’s signature “Dark & Stormy” drink and catching up with everyone who came out for support.
We’re looking forward to displaying alternate versions of Medusa Armada at more events and locations. If you guys know anyone at the Georgia Aquarium, let us know!
