Local artists Phillip Hyman talks about his unyielding passion for art

Charleston native Phillip Hyman has been cranking out artwork since the tender age of 8. Now, at 52, Hyman, also known as "the Machine," is your go-to man if you're looking to get exposure as a fledgeling artist.

Hyman's creativity and versatility as an artist gives him very little downtime, and that's a great thing. The man spouts out art like a faucet, but, when he does have spare time, he loves to curate underground art shows highlighting the talents of artists of all ages and skill levels.

The Charleston City Paper has a nice profile piece on Hyman in which he shares details about his life, his passion for art, and information on the new bi-monthly 'Eyeball Art Show' at Jimbo's Rock Lounge that he's curating.

Hop over and take a read.

Personalization is a huge

Personalization is a huge trend in high-end fashion, but it can present something of a logistical problem with certain kinds of longchamp outlet designer bags. Accessories shoppers are more likely to view their purchases as a long-term investment in their wardrobes, especially when it comes to certain classic bags that retain their value well at resale or that might be passed on to a daughter or niece. Along with all the bags in Dior's Cruise 2017 collection, which are available now, the brand has an idea about non-permanent personalization in Dior Lucky Badges.
On many of the fendi outlet handbags below, which the brand is calling the My Lady Dior line, you'll see straps that feature three little metal disks, which is where you can affix the badges of your choosing. The available options include letters, hashtags, fendi, stars and other symbols, all of which can be mixed and matched (or removed entirely) at will. When they're gone, the little metal disks to which they affix don't look too bad on their own, so having the option to personalize doesn't disrupt the fendi outlet bag's overall design in any super-noticable way.
