I’m on a marketing committee at the art co-op I am part of, which I joined deliberately to learn more about actual artist marketing (as opposed to just posting all creations for free on data mining sites). Graphic designers and the site “Local First AZ” came up in conversation, and looking at the local listings- there are businesses w well designed logos and ones w blank spaces. Who do you think looked professional, memorable, like a real business? Anyways… Got my logo done up real quick and good by a graphic designer last week!
The image up top was shot October 2014 with model Genevieve Liberte in my backyard… image down below, shot 2001 at an Iowa City rave. I’ll never forget the gentleman who approached me with illuminated boobs, or at least, I’ll never delete this photo from my hard drive. Funny what inspired ideas 13 years on.
Happy Thanksgiving! If you enjoy any of this work I encourage you to like and share it! For more photoworks goodness peruse my Etsy shop, follow on tumblr and twitter and instagram, and rummage around on my full site.
These images were shot in my backard with model Genevieve Liberte. The lighting came from a Neewer 160 LED light with an umbrella shoved over it. The first image is almost a textbook example of what is frequently referred to as “Rembrandt lighting,” or “chiaroscuro,” or in layman’s terms, a lot of darkness all around.

If my Etsy stats (and sales) have taught me anything, it’s that people adore Futurama. Luckily for me, they adore it enough to buy primitive mask stylings I do of the characters. These guys were recent additions to my Etsy shop.
A lot of the business advice to indie creators is “know your audience,” and the Simpsons/ Futurama/ Matt Groening audience I know very well, since my house is littered with those products. I have figures, a wind-up tin Bender, a painting of Zoidberg in Australian Aboriginal art style, large tin wall advertisements, etc.
I’ve added a lot of new prints to the Etsy shop, as well as new one-of-a-kind instax and ceramic masks. These particular images are all available as 8×12″ archival prints ranging from $25-$30. The top three painted images were collaborations with artist Jamie Graden in Los Angeles…
…and these two were painted by model and artist Luxbot Lacheln, who is in the first image…
This is a compilation of sorts, video + photos + interview audio + music audio I’ve all done with Seattle model Sierra McKenzie. If you enjoy any of this work I encourage you to like and share it!
