Quaranzine Fest 2020

I am very happy to announce that I will be participating in the online Quaranzine Fest 4-5 April. Without worry about social distancing. Check out all kinds of zines made by the indie community and support them by buying a few. You only need to search by using hashtags⁠ listed on their site.

You can also buy both my print and digital books on my shop. I thank everyone for helping to support me and other indie businesses through these trying times.

Dream States 2

During these challenging times, art has the power to heal the mind. It is also an especially good time for creating art.

I have many new photo montages on my website that you can view and also I have a shop where you can purchase digital and physical zines as well as original prints.

I, like many people, have lost my basic income and any purchase that you are able to make at this time are very much needed and appreciated. Thank you and stay safe.

announcing an abbreviated spectacle

I am very excited to announce my latest publication, an abbreviated spectacle. It is a digital zine with a series of 15 painterly images and a corresponding written piece. This is part of a larger body of work entitled Skirting the Edges.

You can purchase and download it in my shop and have it within moments. Thank you to Joshua Evan and That Other Space for collaborating on publishing it. And a big thank you to everyone who has been purchasing my books and helping me make ends meet as an independent artist.

Announcing comme d'habitude zine

I am very happy to announce the publication of comme d’habitude, my newest photozine. It is a first edition of 50 copies in collaboration with Joshua Evan and That Other Space There are 7 photomontage reproductions and an accompanying written piece.

comme d’habitude (“as usual”) is about the relationship of two people thinking in unison in a world in which they are seen as outsiders. It imagines a carefree existence whether in this world or in another, in which we can still dream and in which we have the ability to fully live outwardly who we are and without judgement. 

This is part of a larger project entitled Skirting the Edges. More news about that in the near future.

The zine and the 7 original one-of-a-kind prints can be purchased on my site. Thank you for supporting the work of an independent artist. It is very much appreciated.
