Brush Magazine, Issue 3

I’m proud to announce that I have had an article and piece of art published in the latest issue of Brush Magazine! I teamed up with Vanessa Oliver-Lloyd to co-write a piece about everyone’s favorite topic: art and copyright!

The idea for the article came about from a discussion we had about the grey area of using vintage elements and magazine images in our art journals. Both of our professions (I’m an Archivist and she’s an Archaeologist) have strong codes of ethics with regards to provenance (the place of origin or earliest known history of something), so we decided to tackle the issue from both an artistic and professional viewpoint. Hopefully it will help make people aware that there are copyright issues involved with using certain images in art and provide some good tips on how to avoid getting into trouble!

There are also tons more great articles and inspirational journals featured in the magazine – thank you to Tanyalee Kahler for putting the fantastic magazine together!

Make Art

Make Art It’s a total cliché, but I’ve loved making art since I was old enough to hold crayons. I had dreams of going to “art school” in my teens (even though I didn’t really know what that meant) and all I secretly wanted was to be an artist. However, I went to a school…

Twin Peaks Fanzine & Launch Party!

Update: You can buy the zine on Laura’s Etsy with free shipping!

I’m pleased to announce that my art will be featured in a Twin Peaks fanzine based in Australia! There will be more details on where to buy the zine to follow, but there is going to be a launch party at the Sticky Institute in Melbourne on Saturday, 12th August. Sadly I won’t be able to attend (being 8,000 miles away and all) but perhaps this can reach some Melbourne-based Twin Peaks fans!

Thanks to Riet for bringing the zine to my attention, and to Laura for including me and putting the whole zine together!

I have a ton of exciting things going on right now, which should all be revealed in the next couple of weeks – watch this space!

Illustractions Release Party & Art Show

One of my goals this year has been to submit my work to zines, so in March I came across a call for a new Los Angeles based zine called Illustractions and decided to submit a few pieces for consideration. Ari got back to me pretty quickly to tell me that one of my pages was to be included, which I was over the moon about! A few weeks later I had an email with an update on the zine and that there was to be a release party for the zine in May at Junior High in Hollywood. I started to get nervous about it, but I accepted the invitation and decided I would just go for it; you have to take these opportunities, right? I also agreed to do some quick portraits of the people at the event – eek!

The show was last night and I’m so glad I went! I was super nervous the whole time, but it was pretty amazing to see my art on the wall and in a zine, to meet some new people, and enjoy a night of stand-up comedy, music, and art. Here are some photos from the show:

Junior High – such an awesome art space!
I really liked this

Unfortunately it doesn’t seem like the zine is available to buy online, I think they were just given out for free across Los Angeles, but it it was really fun to be involved in!
