By now you all know how much I adore the photography of Gray Malin. This photographer is one to watch. He is incredibly talented and has such a creative eye (not to mention, he and I have been friends since our preschool carpool days!). While I adore his entire collection, his Prada Marfa series is my very favorite. I have two of my own having in my apartment. They’re the a great addition to my little bar – the perfect photographs to mix a cocktail underneath. In fact, when Gray was in town last week, that’s exactly what we did. Inspired by his “Mule” photograph, we concocted our “Prada Marfa Mule” cocktail (our own spin on the Moscow Mule). Delicious, to say the least. We documented the entire process with a little video of our day; so you, too, can make your own Marfa Mule!

Now, for the best part. Gray has offered to give a signed 12 x 18 Prada Marfa print to one lucky Luella & June reader! How’s that for a Monday morning giveaway? The only question is, which print one to choose? Follow these steps to enter the giveaway:

  1. Leave a comment below telling me which photograph from the series you would want
  2. Follow Gray Malin on Twitter
  3. Head to his Facebook page for the rest of the details!

All entires must be received by Thursday, December 6th at 8:00 pm CST. The winner will be chosen at random and announced on Friday morning. Good luck!


  1. I absolutely LOVE the first one shown above (taken at dawn)! But they are all amazing! The video was great too, I want to try that drink :)

  2. I just love the Dawn, the 1st one! That sky is beautiful and there are so many colors that would coordinate with my bedroom – where it would hang!

  3. I love the Prada Marfa at Dawn print! As a recent newlywed, I have been eyeing it as a wedding present for my dear husband. Plus as a resident of West Hollywood and a Southerner- Gray Malin work is a MUST in our home!

  4. Great artist work by an up and coming photographer! I love how his pictures capture Texas. The black and white photograph would look amazing in anyone’s home, but especially in my dining room!!

  5. I am torn between the first one and the black and white one but all are wonderful! I liked on fb and followed on twitter. Great giveaway!

  6. I’d love to own the first print. The colors are just too fantastic.

    I just completed all of the steps: following on Twitter via @bedknobsbaubles and shared on FB at Bedknobs & Baubles.

    Thanks for the wonderful opportunity!

  7. HUGE fan! I love the Shopping Spree (in color). But honestly I adore the entire series. Followed on Twitter and I like his page. xo

  8. I would absolutely love/cherish the “Mule” photograph. I have been yearning for one of these Gray Malin Marfa photographs since the first time I saw them!!!

  9. Ever since I visited Marfa and the Prada installation a few months ago, I have been dying to have one of Gray’s photographs to hang in my apartment. Especially now that I relocated from TX to NYC, I would probably choose the two cowboys or the dawn photograph to remind me of TX.

  10. My absolute favorite is the one of the two cowboys and the Prada Marfa museum. Amazing concept!! I also follow Gray on Twitter :)

  11. I LOVE these.. My favorite is the one of the cowboy looking into the store while holding the mule or the black and white one of the model standing on the right hand side of the photo holding the bags… You don’t see her face. LOVE. Followed him on twitter @westsidekat and ill go onto Facebook now and follow directions…

  12. i love love love marfa, it’s where i spent my 30th birthday with my best girl friends. my favs are the horse one nad then teh empty sales rack!

  13. Without a doubt, I love the Marfa Mule!! It’s so eccentric and luxurious. I love that it makes no sense and perfect sense at the same time. What an amazing giveaway!

    Art. Fashion. Furniture.

  14. I’d love the first one! The sunset one. I’m from Highland Park but live in London now, working in fashion – so this photograph would be the perfect reminder of home hanging in my tiny (but much loved) new apartment. xx

  15. I adore his work, so it’s difficult to decide, but I’ve got a great spot in my gallery at home for the Dawn photography. The video was just too cute!!! Thank you for the opportunity.

  16. This is so fun! I love the one with the sunset! I am dying to go to Marfa! A visit there is at the top of my bucket list!!

  17. This isn’t a dream right?
    I really do have a chance to win a photograph of the Prada Marfa store?
    Today really is the best day ever!! <3

    Thank you so very much for this giveaway Bradley! I can't go on and on enough about how fabulous the Prada Marfa store is. Even though I lived in Texas most of my life, I didn't hear about the store until after I had moved away. One day, I hope to be able to visit the location in person and possibly take a few cheesy shots in front of it! Until then, I would love to have one of Mr. Malin's photos hanging in my house (I'm getting giddy just thinking about it). It would be amazing to have either the Dawn or the Sale Sign (With Clothes). Both are just too cool for words!

  18. I have admired your blog pictures of these pictures on your wall a few times now and I would definitely choose Two Cowboys. I love it.

  19. These are beautiful! I love the first print – the one taken at dawn. What wonderful composition of each photographs; I can’t get over it. I would love to win one – and it would be my first piece of true art to hang in my very first college apartment!

  20. I would love the print with the horse to the left of the Prada Marfa store! I love his work! It is amazing that you have been friends since a young age, it was clearly destined from the start!

  21. Absolutely obsessed with the Dawn print. I’ve been a huge fan of his work forever! Such a fun giveaway (and in perfect time for the holidays!)

  22. What an amazing giveaway! I admire all of Gray’s work, but I must say that my favorite of the Prada Marfa series is the “Two Cowboys”. I’d love to hang it in my living room!

    Thanks so much!

  23. I love Gray’s work! And this giveaway! It’s hard to pick just one but I would love to have the Mule print or the Dawn print. All of them are just gorgeous.

  24. Oh, Bradley — what I wouldn’t do to win this giveaway! I would choose ‘Dawn’…it’s been my longtime favorite. Love, love, love!

  25. what an amazing giveaway!! “Dawn” is by far my favorite and would make such a perfect little early birthday gift to meeeee! Thanks for hosting dear! Off to watch the video!

  26. Would love to OWN the “Cowboys in front of the Prada store!!” Talk about a contrast! I can just hear them saying “Wut-in-thee-hell” as they spit their tobacco! -Erin, San Antonio, TX

  27. I adore the one at dawn – it’s hard not to be in awe of such a picturesque moment! Also looking forward to making the “Prada Marfa Mule” next time I have the girls over!

  28. They are ALL awesome, but the “Two Cowboys” that is next to your bar is also my fave! :)


  29. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Prada Marfa Mule Picture by Gray Malin!! I am moving to DC and hope to put it in my office. Such an amazing photograph.
    Cant wait to see who wins!! -Ally
