“Like Knows Like” is a superb documentary project, founded by photographer Marije Kuiper and filmmaker Bas Berkhout. This latest episode is a profile on photographer Amanda Jasnowski, better known to the Instagram world as @hokaytokay. I often wander around on Instagram looking for new work and this funny thing happens time and time again. I scroll down to some older photos buried deep in this person’s feed, and there’s one photo that catches my eye. So I click to leave a friendly comment, and I find the most positive uplifting encouraging message has already been posted! And it’s from Amanda. It’s been amazing to watch Amanda’s work evolve and her following expand. If you’re a photographer (or anyone) trying to figure out how to survive doing your own thing you could learn a lot from her. Watch the video profile below!

One of my absolute favourite artists on this whole damn planet, Will Laren, is releasing a new zine . I’m the proud owner of a couple original drawings by him and a huge supporter of what he does because everything he makes is my favourite. Go follow him on Tumblr, and Instagram, and order his zine. He wanted me to tell you his Tat Squad Oath is that if anyone out there gets a real tattoo of one of his designs in the zine that entitles you to free Tat Squad zines for life (all future issues). Have a look at more drawings from the zine below.
