insomnia sucks balls.

preview of super cool new set to be on zivity soon.
(of me smoking a doobie.)

the last 5 days have resulted in nothing but moping, some sewing, 2 zivity shoots, lots of new music discovery and insomnia at the worst time possible. i guess that's not drastically horrible or anything, but now i can't sleep because i'm lonely. this apartment sucks when you're the only one in it, i feel bad for my boyfriend now because i'm gone all the time.

i leave for NYC tomorrow and i'm super excited. shooting mostly trade stuff with lots of talented mofo's and looking forward to the results.


rain makes me sleepy.

i'm retracing the roots of electronic music tonight and working my way through the entire kraftwerk discography. i completely forgot how diverse those fuckers are.

i feel like i've fallen into a creative slump recently, yet i've been creating for a living. it's a little odd. i just used to have a ridiculous output level of material art, and everything i'm focused on now is much less tangible.

(but still very pretty.)
(shoot for auxiliary magazine)

my boyfriend's out of town for a few weeks so hopefully the lonliness of this empty apartment will make me bust out the sewing machine and bags of half finished projects. it's odd how silence makes the juices flow.

i'll be in:
NYC june 23/24-29.
portland july 15-22
seattle july 22-28
dc august 5-10
