Scumdance!

17th January 2013

Did you know that villians bleed? It’s true! Even if they are made of computers, marshmallows, or Arnold Schwarzeneggers, all things have blood. Everything needs blood to make life because thats what they teach you in school.

Unfortunately, school has text books that lack this kind of vidal information about marshmallow blood, so I’ve taken the liberty of stitching together how I imagine villains blood probably looks if you were to zoom in reeeally close on its fluff.

Xenomorph, Stay Puft, Leatherface and a couple of other plush dolls I made will be up along side some amazing new villainous paintings by Alex PardeeDave Corriea, Skinner, Matt136John Wayshak and others for Scumdance!

Scumdance is an art show that displays the villainous scum of the silver screen,  in conjunction with Sundance Festival in Utah! Opening night for the show is Friday the 18th at Blonde Grizzly in Salt Lake City.

I’ll be there with my Zerofriends, on Friday from 6-10…ish so come out and say HAL-lo to us!

Burger Kings

17th November 2012

I’ve spent a fair majority of my adult life searching for the best burger in the whole wide world. I thought I found it when Sam and I ventured into Corner Bistro in New York, after hearing it weaved into an episode of How I Met Your Mother. That was true until Alex took me on a date one night and I discovered Flora burger in Oakland, CA. Most possibly the best burger I’ve ever had. They season it with salt and pepper and minced parsley and top it with an aged cheese and serve it perfectly rare, every time. Alex and I must have talked up this burger pretty highly, because when we were hanging out at the Zerofriends shop, planning on stopping by Flora, a group of our friends we were with agreed to join us!

We all sat down and I remembered that the tables at Flora, were lined with long sheets of paper. I distributed pens around and we all started drawing our own versions of a hamburger, while we waited for our real burgers to be served. It was funny to see what everyone thought up and put down with a couple of crappy ball point pens, uneven paper, and 5 minutes before the food showed up. No one just drew a burger. They drew rock star burgers beyond a sea of hot dogs, overpriced burgers, and story burgs boards!

I drew the ice-burger that really sunk the Titanic

and caught Dave and Marissa perving out over my nudie pen.

The food eventually came, and like every time I get something warm to eat, I devoured my burger before I could get a chance to take a picture of it and post it on the internet to show off my gluttony. Its probably for the best…

Juxt a Preview

5th September 2012

Recently, I had the pleasure of shooting a couple of artist profile photos for the upcoming Halloween issue of Juxtapoz magazine that’s being curated by Alex Pardee!

Gathering the photos for the magazine has made for quite a memorable month of adventures. I watched men turn into guilt ridden bats, drown in the middle of bone dry parking lots, and vomit up fluids the same color as a Barbie convertible.

Beyond being able to have my photos accompany interviews that offer a unique insight to super talented artists, I also have a 6 page layout of some of my spoOoOoOokiest Halloween photos. (“Spooky” is still a cute term to describe a mixture of silly and slightly odd, right?)

The issue is set to come out on September 11th, so pick it up!!!

If you simply are too excited to wait, Juxtapoz just put up a preview of the issue on their website!

My San Diego Comic Conclusion

24th July 2012

iPhone home photo by Alex

I got to spend some time down at San Diego Comic Con, this year and had the best time people watching, visiting my friends from far away lands in their booths, doodling in corners, and collecting toys, flyers, and candy in my purse.

Comic Converse!

I’ve been to several comic conventions, but this was only my second one to the San Diego. The last time I went equipped with a borrowed Canon 7D and used it to make this fun little video.

SDCC is nuts. There’s people lined up outside of convention halls for days to get a glimpse of the cast of the Big Bang Theory. People camp out for hours before the show opens, in hopes of getting a ticket, to be able to stand in line, for a toy that they will only make 100 of. There was even a Comic Con casualty outside the center, and almost one at the Zerofriends booth.

As much as I appreciated all the chaos, I mainly enjoyed getting to walk around and do some people watching, and grabbing lunch with my fellow photo taking friends. Heres some shots from my trip!

Alex and I discovered the best way to eat the worst foods is by masking them with nacho cheese. It was regretful yet delicious.Sash got to meet up with Audrey Kawasaki and talk about tattoos.I got to meet up with Jim and talk about our splintered phones.

I gave out poem treats to those who had been walking the floor until their feet were about to bleed, like me. Sam and I got to pet the cutest pups when we all showed up too early to a party, where this meal happened!

Yes. I ate the most incredible 6 course meal prepared by the amazing chef Wolvesmouth. I now have dreams that involve cheese fritters all the time, and I wake up drooling far more that ever.

the convention center was swarming with these adorable fluffy llamas. I have no idea why, but it made the entire trip just a little bit cuter.

Zoetica has a glowing unique style, that I made sure that her camera did too, by turning it into a face!

The convention center was typically full of very small people, and not so typically stocked with one abnormally large little person.

I got to see Dethklok play before their tour beings, on a battle ship, during a brilliantly planned party thrown by Adult Swim.

there were a ton of different forms of documenting Comic Con, and I’ve loved seeing everyone elses photos popping up online.

Best Independence Day Since the Movie.

20th July 2012

The other day, someone asked me what I did for the 4th of July and I exploded with excitement, when I got to relive my road trip from Oakland to Portland through memories. I hadn’t gotten to share the photos, until now. Better late then pregnant!

I went up with Alex and our friend Skinner and Kristie. Our drive from one land to another was full of fun hillbilly pit stops, pretty views of forests, off beat air drums, and massive cinnamon buns.

Heaven on Earth has one goal as a restaurant, and its to bestow diabetes upon all of the travelers of Oregon.

On a the ride up I also learned about new metal bands, that you can get pickles with your fries at In n Out, and that BLT potato chips exists and were made by bacon gods.

Being in that car so long started making us a bit stir crazy so by the time we arrived, we practically bursted out of the little red vehicle and onto the streets of downtown Portland.

We went to a party that was stocked full of massive explosives

And beer hoses made of body parts.

But we didn’t show up empty handed, exactly. We supplied monster monster truck!

and the sparkling swords!

It was a night full of people playing with fire.

We even got scolded for having too much fun, as usual.

My favorite way of celebrating the 4th of July, was through color schemes. I dyed my hair blue, stayed as pale white as I could, and got hugged by this boy in the red sweater all day!
