    atypicalLIVING Covers… groundUP Modeling Agency Launch 

    groundUP 3

    It’s been a while since the last atypicalLIVING Covers… so I guess now is a good time to pull it up. Look for a lot of these, as I’m looking to cover a bunch of stuff this Summer.

    First up: last Friday’s launch party for the groundUP Modeling Agency. Yes, nBOSS has expanded his art empire into the fashion world. Which is not all that surprising, since there were models on the groundUP roster since the very beginning. Also, the fashion show has been an integral part of the groundUP experience since the Courtyard days.

    So, it was a natural progression (and groundUP’s growing presence) that the Pirates show off some of their more beautiful First Mates.

    This went down at the Cupola Theatre in the Honolulu Design Center, which is the epicenter of downtown Honolulu’s art and fashion world. Classy, elegant, upscale, everything that a modeling agency needs. There has to be tons of coverage around, but you know that I get those interesting in the moment shots.

    SO, here’s my coverage of the event and RZone’s shots from the live photoshoot.

    Yes, the long-awaited debut of th groundUP Agency is happening this Friday night at the Honolulu Design Center.

    The usual groundUP antics will be going down: music from DJs and performers – including the release of Elephant Armada’s album, a live art mural from the groundUP collective, a photography exhibit featuring Hawaii’s top photographers and a live photoshoot with RZone.

    But, the real big deal is the unleashing of the modeling agency on Hawaii, culminating in the groundUP Fashion Show, with fashions from MB Inc.

    This all goes down this Friday night at the Honolulu Design Center from 8pm-2am. $10 gets you through the door. This is a 21+ event, so keep the kids at home for this one.

    groundUP presents: Bound For Greatness 

    Seriously, as if I need to put any copy below the flyer.

    You already know the deals, but for those that don’t… here’s the situation:

    Noa and his merry band of groundUP Pirates present one of the final art shows of 2008 with BOUND FOR GREATNESS.  This event brings together pirates of all media in one place, sharing what they love to Hawaii’s very appreciative art audience.

    The usual suspects will be in attendance, with the expansive groundUP roster of artists: painters, illustrators, photographers, models, fashion designers, musicians, producers, DJs, and poets, providing aural and visual stimulation.

    To try and list everyone on the flyer would be silly, so just read the flyer and check out al the dopeness that’s gonna be produced during the event.

    One important thing to note is that there wil be new groundUP t-shirts available, so make sure you get up on it and score yourself a piece of the biggest collective of artists in Hawaii.

    Noa is the mastermind behind everything groundUP and, thanks to his tireless efforts, this one promises to be another epic show and another arrow in the ever-growing quivver of amazing groundUP art shows.

    BOUND FOR GREATNESS is set to go down this Saturday night at the Honolulu Design Center.  $7 gets you through the door, $5 if you wear a skirt, collared shirt or groundUP shirt.  This all ages event starts at 8pm and is slated to go until midnight.  Free parking is available in the Honolulu Design Center.
