The whole “I have a black and white image only tumblr so it’s ok for me to change people’s work to fit that” thing is such BS.

My first fabric scraps/notes “donation” for my next memory collector shoot arrived today. (Many thanks to Melanie Grace)

Had to start painting these guys because I’d see them on the table out of the corner of my eye and get freaked out. Multiple times a day. Plus soon enough I’ll have 100+ more to paint.

Realized I was struggling with clothing decisions because I need to go modern with this shoot. Don’t think my brain could wrap itself around that. There’s also the possibility of a little nudity. What!?

Trying to find clothing for a shoot and i’m drawing a blank. I know i want the skirt to be floor length and full, and either black or something i can make black, but i can’t figure out a single other detail and browsing around isn’t helping. Ugh! I almost always know what I want from the very beginning!

For as little as 1$ a month! :) I’m cheap to buy for! You can go here to read up more about it and sign up!

Rusty and dead birthday presents! Perfect!

"i must become a lion hearted girl"

This is thanks to a new app on my phone. Happened to have these two images on my phone, layered them with the app, and liked it enough to do a full sized version on the computer. Never thought that process would happen. One image is of Tatiana Paris, the other of my sister Michelle.


CultureHISTORY: The Ferguson Protests - #NMOS14

In light of Mike Brown’s murder, and the police occupation of Ferguson, something extraordinary is happening. With the help of #BlackTwitter, social media, the spotlight of national attention and the impassioned citizens of Ferguson, a protest movement is taking shape and it is important to bear witness.

First there was the #IfTheyGunnedMeDown thread which was reported in the NY Times & LA Times, the #DontShoot thread of photos (some above), and tomorrow a National Moment of Silence across the country for the victims of police brutality.  

Thursday, August 14th#NMOS14 - 4:00P (PT) / 6:00P (CT) / 7:00P (ET). Check cities/location here.

The issue of police brutality against communities of color is a decades-old problem. But with new technology, everyone has access to more information and these cases are getting more attention. Plus, in the last four weeks, four unarmed black men have been killed by policemen across the country. Along with Mike Brown in St. Louis, Eric Garner in New York, John Crawford in Dayton, OH and Ezell Ford in L.A. Yes, it’s time for a movement.

I’m selling this mask if anyone is interested. It’s made of leather, and obviously fits both children and adults. It’s got a leather buckle strap thingy to hold it to your head, which works really well, and especially on adults it fits well and comfortably on the face. Will be a bit roomier on a young kid though. I paid about 50$ for it, and would like to get the same, plus shipping, though i’m willing to negotiate a little.

One of my birthday presents is a mini one day road trip with my buds and our cameras (and probably a trunk full of props and things just in case.) We’ll be heading up towards the lake city area (so basically north central florida) because we haven’t explored much up there. Anyone know of anything cool (old/abandoned/etc)in that part of the state?

Mentally planning future memory collector images. Would appreciate if people would send me small hand written notes and/or small pieces of fabric. (Almost like they were clipped off a dress or shirt or something.) The notes can say anything, could be your shopping list, whatever, just small and flexible, so no stiff/thick papers. Message or email me for my address. (And pass this along please!)
