I had been hounding Eugene Whang for days to get me his music picks for this issue. From someone who is up all hours and who usually texts right back, I thought it strange. Finally I got a text “Just had a baby.” So the work all day, up all night, 18-year Apple design veteran, DJ and Public Release record label owner is now also a Dad. At least he will be used to the sleep deprivation.
Eugene’s influences are post punk, house, techno, disco and folk. With that as a basis, consider these for all your late night sessions

The first time I took photos of Sofia Coppola on a set, was for a TV show we made together in 1994 called Hi-Octane. I was producing the show, but had my camera with me, so I took some snap shots. Twenty-three years later, I have a pretty extensive archive from most of Sofia’s films. I rarely take stills of the actual movie, but prefer to capture the filmmaking process, documenting what happens in-between takes. This most recent collection from The Beguiled, along with Marie Antoinette, is probably my favorite. Both were period films set in beautiful locations, so the juxtaposition of these actors in elaborate period costumes but on their cell phones or drinking a coke and smoking a cigarette, is what I love about these images.

I’ve been drawing on magazines longer than I’ve been drawing on blank sheets of paper.
Growing up in my parent’s hair salons, I was often bored. To fight off boredom, I’d draw on the hair and beauty magazines. This act got me into trouble every weekend. Customers would flick through the pages to find my biro (ballpoint pen) drawn eye patch over a model’s face or discover my warped version of Sonic the Hedgehog, scrawled over a cigarette ad.
This collection of work is from a four-year period. Now, with my traveling for film work, I always try to find vintage magazines that offer new images for me to manipulate and re-contextualize.
Each piece is typically layered with multiple coded messages from my stream of consciousness. Sometimes, it stems from my need to simply get something off my chest, scatter information or send a message without being preachy. And then, sometimes, I just want to draw a dick.
