Folks! My bestie buddy is making a short film that is going to be shot in Malta, a beautiful honey colored island in the Mediterranean. The film touches on love, sexuality, gender, environmentalism, grief and outsiderness. It’s a fantastic story that I can’t wait to see told. They currently have 3 days left to reach their $15,000 goal on Kickstarter and they are SO CLOSE! As you may know, Kickstarter is an all or nothing platform, so if they do not reach the $15,000 they won’t get ANY of the money already pledged. Please check them out and donate if you can, there are tons of awesome perks! Including signed limited edition photos from the film’s accompanying photo exhibition in New York! send the link to your art loving friends! Follow them here on insta @venusmelite and you can click the link in their bio for the Kickstarter page! Support the arts! Support indie film! Support LGBTQ artists! 🙏🏻✨😘 #venusmelite #malta #indiefilm #kickstarter #honeybees #lgbtqfilm

Hey friends! This Friday I will have some brand new work up at @rosewoodclothingco in their awesome little loft for First Friday! Come stop by! 6-9pm There will be snacks/wine/beer, all that fun stuff! Plus I’ll be there standing around awkwardly and feeling super uncomfortable and sweaty all while wondering why I decided to do this whole “make work inspired by your deepest and sort of secret feelings” thing. YAY! Feelings!
Spent the last couple weeks beeboppin’ all over the west with one of my best friends. Back in VA now, preparing for Flo (bought water and boxed wine) and trying to get work done all while dreaming about waking up in the desert. Anyway, I have 3 tiny pieces up until 9/28 at @secondstreetgallery in their Teeny Tiny Trifecta exhibit! Tons of work from tons of excellent artists all priced at $100!! So if you’ve been wanting to start collecting work, here’s your chance! There will be another chance to snag some work of mine in Richmond, VA next month as well, stay tuned for updates!! Here is a really excellent photo I took of myself and Balanced Rock at Arches National Park. 👍🏻
A good corner.
Back at it.
