"You don't go to Notre Dame to learn something; you go to Notre Dame to be somebody."

It's taken me a little bit to get my thoughts together regarding the fire at Notre Dame. My trip to Paris in 2012 was my first real trip out of the country; I was a junior in college, going into my senior year, with a love of art history. Notre Dame is a place that is easily on everyone's list when they're visiting the city, and I was no exception. I always hold a little bit of cynicism when it comes to locations or pieces of art that are that famous - there's always a worry they won't live up to the hype. I can honestly say that Notre Dame was everything you could have imagined it to be, and even some things that you probably weren't expecting. Not being a religious person, I've always found places of worship interesting, and the ancient cathedral was no exception. Walking through the pews both during a Sunday service as well as during the week gave me an appreciation of the acoustics and architecture, with the cherry on top the awe-inspiring stained glass windows. Notre Dame is one of my fondest memories from my time spent in Paris, and the video of the fire gutting the spire is one of the most horrifying things I've ever seen.

The title of this post is a quote from Lou Holtz that I believe captures Notre Dame in a nutshell; not just for me, but for anyone who was lucky enough to walk through the doors. I can only hope the next time I visit Paris it's been restored back to its former glory.


More Updates on "Home"...

Isn't it pretty? I made up a new promo for the "Home" exhibition yesterday for my Instagram feed featuring the three pieces of mine in the show, and I've also got some more information regarding the opening tonight as well!

For anyone in the area, parking off South Warren Street (which is usually reserved for Berkeley College students) will be open to anyone coming to the opening, so be sure to park there instead of trying for on street parking. There's over twenty artists also featured tonight, with a diverse range of work, so please try and stop by if you can!!!


Updates on the "Home" Exhibition at Zufall Health

Looking forward to the next couple of weekends :)

Opening for "Home" at Zufall Health is on February 6, 2015 from 5:30-8pm. Check out the marketing artwork for the show, as shared by Morris Arts!

Bring on the snow - I've got good work on my side haha



Thank god for snow - that's all I can say :D

First things first - is going to be updating the rest of this weekend with some photos and mixtapes after I resuscitated it from the unintentional coma I put it in during 2013. My bad. At least if you had been following, you got the craziness of my everyday mind ;P
Also, I finally fell through the rabbit hole and created a twitter account - check out my about me page to check out the links for not only that, but my instagram and pinterest accounts too :D

Other new things - both the Film Photography and Digital Photography galleries (both of the various year galleries, if you want specifics) have been updated to reflect work from the last year or so. The Music Series gallery, which I've had work ready to upload for ages, but just haven't had the time to (story of my life), also got a bit of a facelift. And finally, like I mentioned yesterday, I updated my links section as well.

Now that all of the basics are done, we're onto the big updates!!!

 Tiny Little Boxes | March 20, 2012, 3:09pm

If you've been following my updates around here at all, I've been talking about a print project I've been working on for just about forever (like here and here and most recently, here). Tiny Little Boxes is what comes from my original love of making art for my mixtapes, and combining it with the time based thought process behind The Book Project and The Calendar Project. I've seriously fallen in love with making these little snap shots of life, and I'm in the process of trying to figure out a way to display them in a way that makes the most sense. For right now, my first print trial has worked out pretty well and I've been giving away the first couple prints to friends and family. We'll see where it goes from there.

The other major update is my newest gallery, which will be displaying all of my blogging, marketing and promotional work that I've written or helped create. For me, everything comes back to a visual representation, and although the gallery is currently small (as in, only one thing so far), the twists and turns of my current employment ensure that, especially in 2014, it'll become a lot more interesting in the new year.

So, that's about it. I'm actually going to try and update this more than once or twice a year, and seeing as I'm currently three posts in to 2014, it's going well so far. Enjoy the winter storm, everyone!


More News and Future Updates

Congratulations to everyone associated with the Letter to the World III Kickstarter! They made their funding goal and I'm looking forward to hearing some wonderful things from World Stage Design, which again, is being held in Wales this year. That, and the group of performers they have pulled together for this are all amazing people, and I know it will be fantastic.

On to more fantastic things, I'm in the process of uploading both new and old work; the old being some past photography projects, as well as a couple of continuations of old projects that I haven't touched in a while (some of them being a loooong while haha). The new stuff includes some digital print work I've been working on since the end of last year that I've really been enjoying. If you've followed my art tumblr at all (and even to some effect, my personal tumblr), it kind of leans towards incorporating music/mixtape art. I'll have a more cohesive explanation when I start sharing things (I hope), but again, it's one of the things I've gotten into in the last year that I've become really interested in.

Also, to update on Meme The World, I received my mug about two weeks ago, and am in the process of setting up the perfect shot for its maiden voyage. I'm excited for that, to say the least.
