Portrait & Landscape - Aug 2nd opening

I am really proud of the show that Alfonso and I hung last week at Cafe International. It was touch and go for a while but our disparate work is hung together in a way that makes coherent sense and is pleasing to the eye. I love hanging out at Cafe International, have a great relationship with the owner, and LOVE the two musicians who were awesome enough to play for us! I hope you can make it.

promo shots for christmas wholesaling

it's funny but so crucial to think about christmas right now.

these shots came out great, massive thanks due to the awesome photographer (chuck revell, revellray) and model (larkin donley, also a photog).

Paintorama mama

Lately I have been focusing on finding ways to have other people help me produce the clothes so that I have time to paint. It's been working, although the learning curve for managing people in ever-new environments can sometimes distract from focusing on creative and intensive work like painting. I've been making it, though... and produced two runway segments in the last month to boot. a photo shoot later today ought to make it possible for me to share those clothes with you... meanwhile, check out the paintings I hung at Mars Bar last month

and the piece I am desperately trying to finish in time to hang at Cafe International in two weeks!

more images of this painting are available here.
