New Prints and They Will Look Exactly Like This

I’m selling prints at LIC Flea and Food in Long Island City tomorrow from 10-6 and every Saturday thereafter until September 28. I’ve hesitated posting anything about this but have been encouraged by my customers’ responses. This is just a small sampling of what will be included but it gives you an idea. Even if you’re not looking for prints, I highly recommend checking this flea market out. I’m earnings have been going into new purchases from there — kinda defeats the point but cool stuff.

Mask Made From Rope

Before we did her hair and wrapped rope around her face, we enjoyed a dinner of shrimp mixed in with the quinoa. We drank red wine and listened to Nitzer Ebb, Jazz and Blues. My fiance threaded her hair into braids then the rope. The look was inspired by Romans. The rope was inspired by Manila.

Dreamy Haze at Dream Hotel

Today’s theme? Dream-like photos taken at the Dream Hotel.

No one was really asleep during the taking of these photos. We just played along.



This post is all about you. I wanted to say thanks for putting me over the 100 WordPress followers mark this week. But rather than just telling you “thanks. Really appreciate it” I’d rather give you something.

The first piece (the one just below this) was made especially for you. If you’re wondering what you could do with it, do what I did and use it as a background. It’s also optimized in case you’d like to print it and hang it in your room.

For those of you who might be afraid of scary yet welcoming faces (believe me, I totally understand) I’ve also included a free download of one of my more popular prints. It’s the one that always sells out. So take it, print it. I don’t usually do landscapes but this one is a personal favorite of mine.

Best wishes to you all and thanks a ton.
