You know, I've become really interested in the idea that, in general, the ultimate destination for art is documentation in a book or video. To start the ball rolling in my own practice I decided to convert the Machine… Continue

Dirty Smut - inspired through my fine arts course. The content is basically arty porn-related or sexually inspired images. Its not really explicit at all, a little bit, maybe. I have been told it is "shocking... but a good shocking". I like that.
Some drawings, a little writing, photos of friends, all content is self-produced.… Continue

Name the 1971 TV series that was the first reality show.
The PBS Series, "An American Family" which ran during Jan-March 1973
I went to a party celebrating the show at the Stoneleigh Hotel here in Dallas. I wrote a short story on the event. A couple of things stand out. Lance, the celebrated gay son was the hit of the party, and in the madness he mentioned that he liked my spanish style… Continue

I sent my zine in to ColorLines magazine for review and they were nice enough, and interested enough, to publish my article about photographer Alvin Baltrop online. Go here to check it out: www.colorlines.com.
Also, they're gonna run a little one-page thing on Shotgun Seamstress in their July/August 2009 issue.
For those of you who've never heard of ColorLines:

politics since 1998. We tell stories from… Continue

From an Etsy buyer:
Interesting work. I lean towards the second issue: I like the smaller
size and the greater contrast of dark and light in the pictures - I think the greater contrast allows the viewer/reader more access to the book.
Lets see, one of my favorite
pictures is in the first book - the one where you wrote: When dealing with nature....
very strong image. I like Zines that have strength of vision - ones that reach
some truth… Continue

After learning that tomorrow I have to take tax stuff to Elizabeth at my Dad's office I decided that I would spend part of today making the second volume of Book Art even though I have a million other things I should be doing. I rationalised that I am opening a gallery/artspace soon and I need things to fill the shop section.
These are some… Continue

So, I tired to post this in the events section and it wouldn't work!
I was asked to take part in this exhibit, which is awesome! I even had to write an artist statement and stuff. It is at the Interstate Firehouse Culture Center that is 3 blocks away from my house. I made a giant collage of images from Brainscan and I have two shelves of my zines.... all of the zines I have printed since 2003.
Other pieces include artist books, posters by various Portland printers, zine… Continue

How do I love zines? Let me count the ways.
I love the way you come from people who are earnest and sincere in their interests, hobbies, rants and raves. I love the way you speak to me with a voice untainted by large corporations and media outlets. I love the way you sniggle into my heart, limping in on a postage stamp that costs more and more until you fear you cannot eek out another. (It only makes you more precious.)
I love the way you tell me what you think, what you… Continue
