The arts have been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember. Creativity drives passion. This is a weekly look into the world of artists in music, art and dance and what they create. Feed your imagination!
JoJo Gomez | XO
I have mentioned JoJo on a previous NextTime. Her energy and attack on the floor is breathtaking. LOVE watching her Instagram and Youtube videos of her choreography. This routine in particular oozes sex. The body movements are so pure. It is a fantastic pairing of JoJo Gomez and Donovan Okimura. Taking a small sidebar- the black outfits are classic and clean. The back and forth is fluid. Rihanna makes such great music to choreograph to. I have always thought that. JoJo has been gaining new fans every day with her dedication to the art of dance. Much deserved. Hard work always pays off. I currently take ballet classes at Edge Performing Arts in Hollywood where she teaches Jazz Funk. I am planning on taking her class in the near future. This video was shot at Millennium Dance Complex, another kick ass studio in North Hollywood. I plan to supplement my schedule with classes there as well.
Kimbra | Fav Track: Settle Down
Agh! I love Kimbra! She is a beautiful woman and talented artist. You may know her from the infamous Gotye song “Somebody That I Used To Know.” I liked her melodies before that video hit the scene. Her passion drives the soul to smile. She evokes true musicianship. The official video for Settle Down (my favorite track) is noteworthy. Drama and passion unite. Or maybe are one in the same. I’m blasting her albums as I write this weekly edition of NextTime (apologies to my next door neighbor). Her style is pretty and quirky. It feels like riding down a flowing river while nodding your head and closing your eyes. Bliss.

Ed is an illustration artist I found on Instagram. I have been finding a lot of great talent on this media lately. A scrapbook of nice artwork to be seen. His work is a cool collection of dark comics that speaks loudly of the reality of our society’s broken pieces. Pop culture with a twist. I like loud voices, be it in any form of art. Our world is pretty wild. Celebrations and tragedies both happen on a regular basis. His dark art peaked my interest. Love the illustrations Ed! =)
