BLOOD VISITS & THE FAILURES OF MEN AND OF MEN WHO WANT TO FAIL ME

It’s the holiday season and I’ve been forced to ponder things very deeply and very astutely. It’s an unfortunate occurrence as I think I’m pretty on throughout the year but forgive me for I am about to be blunt. I must address all who dare come out of the woodwork and come to me inContinue reading “BLOOD VISITS & THE FAILURES OF MEN AND OF MEN WHO WANT TO FAIL ME”

CAMARADERIE IN THE FACE OF THE OPPRESSOR

At approximately 1700 hours, on the date of December 8th, 2014, I was held at knife point by my oppressors and I had reached my breaking point.

MUST LUST CATS

I had a dream and we were in it. I went downstairs and found you in the kitchen, talking on a house phone, the old wire cord getting wrapped around you.

How Does Your Garden Grow?

Thoughts? Gypsies, ivy gardens, roses, lines, storytellers, vintage wallpaper, space, Scherherazade, tattoos, bicycle gangs…

Radiant Orchid and a Hint of Black Box

SO…the big Pancakes and Booze Art Show is coming up on April 10th and I’ve been steadily working on ideas for my body painting model, Adrienne. I went through all kinds of ideas from paisley and Tiffany glass to gemstones and glitter but I’ve finally figured it out. Back in January, Pantone announced that theContinue reading “Radiant Orchid and a Hint of Black Box”
