Took the truck south. Camped in the back, watched the stars. Woke with first light and explored the coast of Big Sur.
35mm film photos. Adventures in the rust of industry. Summer 2018.
Just found out that I will be at the SF ZIne Fest, September 2nd, to sell my prints and books! I know its a long way off, but im excited about it. Be there or be square.
P.s. this is my job, color testing for fabric prints.
My latest piece, a small single page risograph zine. I have a shit old film camera, just a point and shoot, but it works. I’ve been slowly shooting rolls of film on it, taking months to shoot a single roll. These are all photos from around the SF Bay Area.
My girlfriend, Cecilia (she makes awesome art too, check her out- ceciliamignon.com) helped me print these. She’s a pro at riso printing, as well as an all around badass.
Anyways, new stuff. Making drawings for the new book tonight.
Screen prints and woodcuts. Hoping to make a book of full page prints like these. The last print here was featured in a print exchange by Dead Matter Press. Considering the balance of full landscapes with simple, flat figures and objects. More on that to come.

Recently I have been very exhausted by the current trends in social media, and the digital age in a whole. Platforms like instagram are seemingly pointless, with algorithms determining what we see, rather than finding our own way through the digital sphere. I am somewhat of a luddite myself, so I decided to put out more of my process stuff here, and keep my social media accounts as more of a small portfolio. So I am moving away from that social media and back to the kind of blogs and artist websites that inspired me to draw my days away as a kid.
I want this blog to be a place to share my thoughts, process, life, failures and successes. Its for everything that fits in between the final pieces, what interests and inspires me.
I would love to hear from you if you have a question or a comment, or if you just want to chat about art.
