In the Hood/Out the Window





Diane





Without a doubt one of the strangest women I've ever encountered and perhaps the only sane person I've met that's crazier than me. I think it's just a front to hide her vulnerability. We all have favorite methods of defending ourselves.

Beer Spins with Lucha libre

The beer spin was invented shortly after Grants Pass artist Jon Maxwell burst through fellow Grants Pass artist Andrew Cates' front door shouting "schlater schlough!"
That was '96. I've made it a point to pass it along over the years, introducing it to cultural enclaves scattered across half the globe. Now it appears to be taking the world of Lucha Libre by storm. God help us.

New Year's, When We Arrived on the Scene...






Hush is swanky little spot that likes to think it's a club. The DJ sucked, the drinks were ten dollars and the place smelled like Hugo Boss. Not my scene. We laughed a little and decided to play it how we saw it.

New Year's, This Magic Moment






At this time I’d like to offer a toast to all the party people who are acting like we’re not currently headed for oblivion.

New Year's, Something’s Not Quite Right Here




It’s tough to say exactly where my mindset was at this point. Did I want to show the farcical aspects of people attempting to pay for status? Did I want to expose the bogus fronts that people erect? Maybe I just wanted to make crude yet beautiful photos. I think I did all three.
Simply put, it's all down hill from here.

New Year's, Please Don't Post Those


New Year's, Take Me to Your Leader




New Year's, I Kissed a Girl and I Liked It





New Year's, This is the End
