Doe Deere, A Doll Maker And An Artist Who Creates “Lazy” Art

Doe Deere, A Doll Maker And An Artist Who Creates “Lazy” Art

 

Doe Deere is the founder and CEO of Lime Crime makeup, a brand that creates modern cosmetics with wild, crazy color palettes women around the world have fallen in love with.

Doe Deere, like the unusual name of her makeup brand, is not your average young woman. She was born in Russia, and her family moved here when she was young. Against the odds, Doe Deere began a small cosmetics company, because she had a difficult time finding vibrant, colorful makeup. Today, Lime Crime has arrived with a huge Instagram following at some 300,000.

Her fan base is loyal and social media-savvy, and Instagram has become a welcome place to submit photos wearing Lime Crime makeup. There, you will also find gorgeous photos of Doe Deere with her now blue, cotton candy-colored tresses and lovely bold lips and painted eyes.

Her personal photos are so striking and doll-like, that one famous artist Richard Prince decided he wanted to use her image and that of a 23-inch fashion doll for his next work of art.

Prince took a screen shot of Doe Deere posing with a masterpiece created by her close friend and talented doll maker Joshua David McKenney. The custom made doll from his Pidgin brand looked exactly like the Lime Crime founder with matching hair color, vivid makeup and attire. Below the photo were Doe Deere’s words about her artist friend McKenney and his gorgeous Doe Deere doll re-creation.

Prince took the screen shot and super-sized it to dimensions of a 48-by-65-inch print. Then, he removed her text and inserted his own, and the stolen screen shot was now his without the copyright rules one would figure might matter.

Doe Deere’s lovely face and that of Joshua David McKenney’s 23-inch beautiful doll were now part of some “lazy” art created by Richard Prince and hanging at the New York Frieze Art Fair. The striking print then sold quickly at $90,000.

Both Doe Deere and Joshua David McKenney were shocked, because Prince never approached them for permission to use the screen shot. The spotlight was now on the makeup maven and popular doll maker but not for the right reasons. McKenney, especially, was heartbroken that the other artist had deleted his name from the doll gifted to Doe Deere. In other words, McKenney’s doll had become a prop for the artist’s mission, and everything about the doll, such as being carefully and exquisitely made, was purposely deleted in the process.

Doe Deere and McKenney both feel that an artist should never profit off the back of another fellow artist. It’s a lousy thing to do and renders someone’s work voiceless.

Lime Crime and Pidgin are two brands that really matter.

Doe Deere and Lime Crime: Living Fantasies

Doe Deere and Lime Crime: Living Fantasies

 

Taking a unique approach to a familiar industry is crucial in order to build your business in today’s world. Applying this theory daily is the makeup company, Lime Crime. As of May 5, 2016, the company’s CEO, Doe Deere, was incredibly eager to announce that the brand’s Instagram page just reached two million followers, or unicorns as they enjoy referring to themselves as. Rejoicing in this moment allowed for the public to understand the mystery behind the over the top company’s success.

Describing that this company allows both men and women to express themselves originally, safely, and cost-effectively, readers got to understand that this account is not only for promoting the company, but for celebrating those who use the products. Adorned with photos of satisfied consumers rocking vibrant lips and colorized eyeshadow, this page is meant to celebrate the creativity that the world tends to lack. Creating a sense of community for those with common interests across the globe allows Lime Crime to gain exposure, and support their overall goal of spreading originality and the freedom to express yourself.

The spirited face behind Lime Crime is CEO and founder, Doe Deere. The self-proclaimed unicorn queen attributes her success to her disdain for the makeup industry. Describing what she believed to be a nude, monotone world, Deere revels in her theories of color, vibrancy, and expression. Ditching a nude pink for an alien green has allowed Deere to live out her own enjoyments as she helps her unicorns gallop into the artistic world of lively makeup.

Born in Russia, the queen of unfamiliar colors never deemed herself as being an entrepreneur. With a strong passion for creativity and music throughout her life, Deere moved to New York to embark on a music career. Upon meeting her husband and forming their band, Miss Lime Crime began making her own makeup in order to stand out on her own stage outside of her music career. Deciding to share her talents with the public resulted in the creation of the well-known makeup brand, and adoring fans across the universe, really.

From Russia to music, to becoming a stellar CEO, Deere is a futuristic beauty in this stagnant world. Changing the way that people perceive others has allowed the queen of unicorns to become a living fantasy, and live in one as well.

Kyle Bass Continues To Make Predictions

Kyle Bass Continues To Make Predictions

Kyle Bass is a prominent hedge fund manager based in Dallas, Texas. Through his company Hayman Capital, Bass has applied his market analysis skills to predict market trends. Most notably, the subprime mortgage crisis of 2008 stands out as the most modern market prediction Bass ever made.

The most recent economic trend that Kyle Bass foresees is a banking crisis in China. According to Bass, this crisis has the potential to be much worse than the global economic crisis of 2008. However, he asserts that it is likely to have a lesser overall effect on the world economy. Given his consistency in making top economic predictions, experts pay attention to his predictions.

Speaking to Fortune magazine, Bass views the Chinese economy as an emerging market with an undercapitalized financial system. China has a large population, and an equally large economy makes it easier to exhaust funds over a short period. This scenario being the case, he argues that even a heavily invested emergency fund in China would run thin very fast. In evidence of this, Bass highlights the growing stature of assets in China’s banking system. Conservatives believe that emerging economies’ ratio of bank assets to GDP should never be higher than the rate in developed nations.

China’s loan crisis of 2002 led to the loss of 2002 resulted in the losses of over 30% of assets in its banking industry. The growth of the same sector today represents a growth percentage of over 400%.This growth means that more catastrophic losses are likely to be incurred on the occurrence of a similar event. However, these loses may not necessarily bring about another recession though the growth of the global economy is likely to stagnate.

Bass expects the crisis to pose minimal risks to an already secured US economy. The US already has measures in place to cushion its banks from adverse economic challenges. However, these two economic powers will experience shortfalls with their GDP. Kyle Bass’s advice to China is to print and float bonds in international markets to get through the crisis. Alternatively, the Republic can install similar measures to recap banks and cushion them from resulting downfall.

Kyle Bass enjoys massive political and economic alliances across the globe. Bass offers advisory services to Argentine economic policy makers. He is also a darling of the media where he keeps his opinions public. Controversies have hit Kyles throughout his career but surprisingly, his public image remains intact as he thrives on the publicity.

Critics and followers appreciate his open-mindedness, Kyle Bass. The volatile world of financial markets comes with qualms and benefits of equal magnitude. Bass has thrived in this industry for over fifteen good years.

New Screenwriter for Red Sonja Movie Reboot

New Screenwriter for Red Sonja Movie Reboot

The reboot for Conan the Barbarian was a complete flop in all regards. However, the studio is still looking a another film from the universe that Conan is in. This film is called Red Sonja. As of right now, the upcoming reboot is getting anew screenwriter to pen the project.

Red Sonja was adapted to film back in 1985 starring Brigitte Nielsen. Schwarzenegger also starred in a smaller role as Kalidor, who might as well have been Conan. However, rights have prevented the use of the name.

Meanwhile, the studio is getting ready to begin production on The Legend of Conan which is not a reboot but rather a return to the other series of Conan movies. Fans like Bernardo Chua (Drinkbettercoffee.com) know that this marks the first time in history where a former series is resumed after a failed attempt at a reboot. This would complete the Conan Trilogy starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Arnold will play as an elderly Conan in the upcoming flick.

As for Red Sonya, there is no telling as of right now what direction they are going to take with this character in the upcoming reboot.

Taking the Easy Way

Taking the Easy Way

When you’re out of work, it can be an emotionally trying time. You don’t have the money to pay the bills that you have, you don’t know when you’ll get back to work, and you might not be able to go back to work if the company closes. It’s no wonder there are abut 45,000 suicides every year as a result of people being unemployed. Susan McGalla knows that living a life of stability and going to a life of the unknown is something that is hard to face. There are people who don’t know how they will support their family, so they take the easy way out, thinking that if they weren’t around, their family could live better. Some people get so down about not having money that they don’t see the bright sides in life. They only see that things aren’t good at the time and that if they wait, then things might get better in the future if they start applying for jobs or seek the help needed to get through a tough time.
