Having a Bad Year?

Ongoing work about bandit signs displayed through Los Angeles. 


A collection of clothes and a 24 page zine inspired by my 1930s apartment building In Ktown. All proceeds from the items were donated to Ktown for All and Urban Partners LA.

Nods to Kelly. 

If you want a special friend, I'll share mine. 


A dream I had sometime last summer, inspired by a diagram created by neurosurgeon Wilder Penfield. A diagram depicting a small humanoid figure that’s built in proportion to the sensitivity of the body. Penfield created the Montreal procedure which is when open head surgery is performed to pinpoint what parts of the brain control what. The procedure was mainly used to cure epilepsy causing seizures and during this procedure Penfield would do tests by poking at different parts of the brain and see what stimulates what, and when something doesn’t match that’s where he knew the wiring of the brain is messed up. I found that during a procedure a patient stimulated a memory reciting “it is late at night, around the carnival somewhere some sort of traveling circus” It wasn’t a memory but as if he relived this exact experience at some carnival once again. A reminder to take care of the little man/woman controlling things up there.
