A little late but the Bedbush Hills show was a great success! We had a lot of fun producing the work and really glad everyone came out and enjoyed themselves. Overall we sold 3 pieces and a bunch of prints. We are also in talks to do another show in Harlem in late May, so stay tuned!
My good friend asked me to make a r&b mix for his engagement party to play in the background. We used to rock in the same dance company where he choreographed to a lot of silky smooth r&b songs and called the style “buttamilk”. So in that spirit, I made a nice collection of faves to chill to.

I had a iPhone 3GS and Instagram was the one app I missed when I switched to Droid. Eventually, it came to droid but by that time I had switch back to iPhone (reluctantly). I enjoy instagram but I recently did a nice purge of people I follow: no kids, no pets, no food, no memes, and no ODing on selfie’s. I also cut a lot of the “hot, big booty chicks” as well (ok I kept 2). What I replaced them with was photographers and illustrators. Kept the close friends but really wanted to keep the feed one of inspiration and not fluff. What I did notice was a lot of photographer were using VSCOcam and their work had a certain photo-like quality I was digggin’. So, I’ve hopped on the #vscocam train and I really like it. You can find my flicks at camerontmoore.vsco.co and I’ll post a few here, like the above taken in Brooklyn and a really good place called, Sidecar.
In March, I will be participating in an art show called The Bespoke Deconstruction Of Bedbush Hills in Brooklyn NYC with 2 dear friends and talented artists Cliff Washington and PopePhoenix. I am pretty excited as this is my first art show in a number of years but also welcome the challenge of sharpening the pencils and painting again. I will be posting WIP sketches and paintings as the show draws near. Info Below:

So in roughly a month, I will be part of an art show in Bedstuy, Brooklyn called The Bespoke Deconstruction Of Bedbush Hills. Featuring two other amazing artists and dear friends, Cliff Washington and Pope Phoenix. I haven’t been in an art show in about 4 years so it’s going to be an interesting and challenging experience but I think I am up to it! Below are a few sketches and I will be posting more work in progress as the show date nears. (I also created the website but that’s for another post.)
With my upcoming art show around the corner I figured I should get this blog back in order. Also going back and adding in a bunch of design and art stuff I’ve done over the past year to fill in some gaps. Look for WIP art pieces as well as rants and design work. Time to get to work!
I remember in Middle School (year 7-8) at the dances, the slow songs were the best and worst. Best because you get to dance with a girl (yay)! Worst because you had to ASK the girl to dance and possibly face rejection. Heavy stuff for an adolescent teen. However, the slow jams themselves were always good and stuck with me even today. I have a distinct memory for a lot of the songs in the mix. No real overall theme just some jams you might of forgot. Enjoy!

This is DJ Cam and NYC right now is straight BRICK. So, that means staying in, making that warm cocoa/cider, and relaxing to some good tunes. It also means for me to stop being lazy and get back on my mix game! So here you go, quick and easy R&B (hip-hop remix) tracks that I used to see/hear on BET’s Video Soul. A few gems but also a few favorites I haven’t heard in a while. Enjoy!

Fellow Geek Chic crew member DJ Commish is a great homie and an even better DJ. He taps me for various flyers and mixtape covers from time to time. This one was for his birthday party (which I also deejayed at).
