Okay, it’s definitely been a while since last post, but here’s something brand new and very shiny…
It’s called “Lady Galaxy”, and is my piece for the upcoming Lady Gaga fanzine “Prison for Bitches”, being published by my best buddy Ryan Sands and our friend Michael DeForge. This was a lot of fun to create, and since I’m really into Lady Gaga, it’s exciting to be in on the zine. I’ve posted the full-width version, but if you’d like to take a look at the square format version that will appear in the zine, click here.
I guess you could say that it’s the second in my series of musician-inspired pieces, following “Lionheart“, my Kate Bush inspired piece from 2006. Special thanks to the lovely Raven Le Faye for modeling for it. We shot five different shoots that day, so look for more work with her in it over the next couple months. Here are some details from the work:
So in other news, believe it or not, I’m moving back to Michigan again for a few months. Times have been tough, money-wise, and I have to help my parents get their house ready to sell (lots of painting and varnishing), so I’d rather just do it now when the weather there is really nice, and while I have no career commitments in San Francisco (other than occasional freelance work that I can do remotely). Of course, it’s very hard to leave my friends, my girlfriend, and this beautiful part of the country, but I don’t have much choice about it really. The plan is to help out as much as possible, make as much art as possible, and come back to California in the fall – more than likely to LA this time. We’ll see though… I’m trying not to think too far ahead this time, since life is anything but predictable.
Anyway, I’ll be on the road starting this Saturday, and will be busy at first, but look for a lot more art soon, as I will be much less stressed-out this summer hopefully (stress does not equal good art for me). Ciao for now cats and kittens!
