Another installment of Crew Thick begins here at Luminary, and as before I will begin with a quote.

 “There are no days in life so memorable as those which vibrated to some stroke of the imagination.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson – American philosopher and poet 

 

A while back I designed a piece for my friend Lawrence J. Annunziata. Many know him as a model on the scene, having worked with Escada for commercials, Pelle Pelle for ad campaigns, and Jeremy Scott for runway shows. With a Black and Italian background it’s no wonder this young man, has heads turning. When we sat down to discuss his piece, we decided on an Egyptian themed design, using a Pyramid and the Eye of Osiris. When asked why he chose an Egyptian piece, Law said, “…that’s where Black people are from, and people have always told me I look like an Egyptian, so I ran with it. The Eye of Osiris represents awareness, and these cats out here need some of that.” Well said my friend, well said indeed!
