Last day in Florence, working alongside my vegan-sister: @minkshoes - whom I've proudly partnered with to create #VonDshoes! 👯🖤 For all those asking, here's the low down on my upcoming shoe line: •aiming to launch VonD shoes early 2018 •yes, I'll be making sizes ranging from 5-12 •yes, I'll be including several unisex designs for all my homeboys [including sneakers, combat boots, slip ons + creepers] •yes, VonD shoes will be sold/shipped internationally •yes, I'm making flats, too! •no, VonD shoes will not be made up of any animal-harming material [this includes sourcing out substitutes for leather, reptile, wool, silk, fur, feathers, and animal based adhesives. •yes, we have ethically sourced synthetic/organic/recycled materials, and I'm excited to share with you some of these innovative fabrics that are gonna blow your mind! •pricing: as always, I aim to make #crueltyfree + #vegan products that are accessible + affordable. With that said, these shoes are not made in China, and instead are handcrafted by artisan manufacturers. Made with love + care here in Italy. So no, they ain't gonna be as cheap as Payless Shoes, but they aren't gonna be Rodeo Drive prices either. 🖤

Can we take a moment to appreciate how fucking sexy this heel turned out?! 🖤 This is a pair of concealed-platform spectator heels I designed for my #vegan shoe line.  Glossy black patent leather detail on matte black leather [non-animal based, of course!] #VonDshoes #comingsoon

Sneak peek of the back-zipped moto-boot I designed.  This is just a prototype, so there's still a few adjustments [like adding a bit more height so it reaches slightly above the shin]. The top portion folds down if you wanna be all pirate about it.  And man! Can I just say this vegan-leather is not only durable as fuck, but hugs your ankles in all the right places.  I'm gonna be wearing the hell outta these! 🖤 #VonDshoes #comingsoon #vegan #crueltyfree

...and here is what that sheet music I just posted, translates to in piano form.  Don't worry - my album is not a buncha sad acoustic songs. It's a buncha sad synth-y type songs. 🖤 *ps. gonna go ahead and apologize for my voice right now - literally just woke up, and haven't done any vocal warm ups yet.

I started playing [classical] piano at the age of 5.  Although, I'm grateful to my parents for forcing our daily hours of practice during childhood, I do admit that sheet music is a bit of a crutch for me now.  I really should start building my memory repertoire instead of always relaying on reading. 
This here, is the sheet music for a song I wrote called Satellite.  Can't wait to finally share and release this damn album I've been keeping to myself for the past few years - so I can start writing again. 🖤 #playmoreinstruments #pianoparty #thisshitaintbeethovenbutatleastitsreal

To all my #vegan friends: I'm just about finished reading this book, and man! there is so much useful insight on how to best communicate the animal rights message.  In my own humble opinion, I think there are a lot of well-intentioned vegans out there who, without knowing it, end up pushing people away from the cause, simply by how they communicate.  I remember back when I was NOT a vegan, and how turned off I'd get by the overbearing vegan - even though I'm sure a part of what they were preaching made some sense to me.  This book is really helping me understand how much more effective I could be if I took some of these ideas into consideration.  Anyway, today, I'm sending EXTRA LOVE to all my #vegan animal rights activist friends as well as all of my non-vegan friends who may be considering the change. 🖤

Lemmy had been filming for his documentary when I took this photo of him.  Afterwards, we drove over to my house where he drank from the bottle of Jack he stored in my fridge, and we stayed up late talking about castles, ghosts and unrequited Love.  Lemmy always pushed me to step outside my hopelessness and try.  I fuckin miss him so much. 🖤♠️
