“Dusk” zines 1-3 – model photography meets graphic design in troubled times

IMG_0765

I had been wanting to do a graphic design-themed zine for a long while (having access to a fairly nice color copier at my work) and by the time Phoenix Zine Fest rolled around fall of 2017, I had enough material to make 3 issues.  Models include my daughter Maggie, Alina Lee aka Thumbelina, McKenzie Eckels, Ana Corbí, and many many more of my favorite people.
Graphic design school was my first education after high school and anything pushing design or altered photography I’m there for.  It is so much fun to take an image and push it to new levels.

Anyone interested in actually owning a zine can order one on my shop.  Each are approximately 6×8″ with card stock cover, hand stitched binding, 20 pages of design and writing and a 16 track CD of original ambient/ trip hop music I made.

I have an explainer video of why you may want to make a zine of your own on my YouTube!  Feel free to contribute to the list of complaining comments about how the music is too loud in this particular video.

More Instant Film Weekdays!

Instant Film (108 of 110)

I’ve been quietly beavering away over on my Patreon laying out weekday instax photos.  Instant film, photos of my daughter, tutorial stuff and character animation are the areas I get the most public interest and it turns out- I have hundreds of instant film shots from model shoots that have never seen the light of day.  Some 18+, some not, but I always make the effort to be interesting and not just have a girl on a empty bed or whatever.  This particular image is my buddies Alina Lee aka Thumbelina and Lux Tango from last year!  Check out the rest of the goodies at the $15 Bulldog level on my Patreon!

Versions – new video art with Alina Lee

My final shoot of 2016 was in Sacramento with model Alina Lee aka Thumbelina.  We did 3 video pieces, the first of which is “Versions”, about as surrealist and minimalist as we could get!
