Shift, Reset

There is a change coming, and I felt I ought to let you know about it, if you’re still reading this. I say “still”, because over the past year, I’ve been writing here less and less, and I’m told inconsistency is how “readerships” decrease. But I have my reasons. One of them is the fact that I’ve been thinking about my voice here, and how important it is to reflect who I am as closely as possible. It’s difficult to do that …

Declaration Station

Good morning, stardust surfers! Here are a few announcements for the coming weeks. October 11 This Thursday, I’m struttin’ for Halcyon  at the gorgeous historical Mayan theater in downtown LA. Get your tickets today, right here, by clicking the yellow banner titled, “Provocations”. November 2 I have a piece in the 100 Skulls exhibit at Kat Von D’s Wonderland gallery. My skull is inspired by Russian lacquer art, my Alien Botany research and gilded grills everywhere. A sneak peek of the …

Inkdrops 027 – Foxy Fairies

Right before leaving for China, I received this commission request: two small drawings, on a budget, in the pages of a journal that would serve as part of a marriage proposal to a girl who really loves fairies. I was asked to make it sweet and told it didn’t have to be chaste. I received the journal the week before my departure, hoping for a few spare moments to work on it from the road, but the leather-bound notebook ended up …

Inkdrops 026 – Gibson Girls Now Available Individually!

It’s October, in theory my favorite month of the year because of Halloween and the idea that fall is here, in the wake of the late September autumn equinox. I say “in theory” because here in LA we’re still melting in 100-degree heat, but skull-shaped goblets are readily available in drug stores, which means that Halloween is, in fact, approaching, despite this decidedly unglamorous heat. To celebrate, I’m making the ladies of the Gibson Girls Print Set available individually. This means that you …

Photo Flurry 109 – The Prodigal Cosmonomad Returns

I’ve been back from China for two weeks and the jet lag is finally lifting its sticky film from my brain. Back on LA time, too, though Beijing hours still occasionally wake me up around 3AM – wondering who and where I am. For a few days, all I could do was sloth and sleep, avoiding email and calls to the best of my ability, which is to say not all that well. Duties, outstanding commissions and Kickstarter incentives flopped …

The Countdown

Good morning, Biorequiem navigators! It’s been one intense month around these parts, as you can probably tell by the radio silence. Thanks to your generous contributions and help in getting the word out about The Secret Guide to Alternative Beijing – it’s HAPPENING. In fact, it’s happening tomorrow. At this moment, I’m in a tornado of packing and tying up loose ends before boarding a plane for a one-month-long journey in China. My hair is freshly dyed to resemble a …

Kickstart The Secret Guide to Alternative Beijing!

I’ll never forget my first grown-up trip. I went to Europe fresh out of high school, using a travel guide called “Weird Europe”, which is exactly what it sounds like and made for the most remarkable adventure. Now, Shien Lee, Daniel Frei and I want to offer adventurers worldwide The Secret Guide to Alternative Beijing – a video guide to the undiscovered side of one of China’s most exciting, burgeoning cities. We’ve just launched a Kickstarter page to fund this …

Summertime Action // Projection

Hello again, my bioluminescent plankton of the cosmos! It is I, your navigatrix, here to tell you that the next two months are going to be so jam-packed that I may have to continue this sporadic manner of posting until Autumn. It always seems to me that SDCC kicks Summer into gear and everything becomes absurd for several months. This is certainly the case this year, and I’m going to do my best to keep you abreast of pertinent goings …

Photo Flurry 107 – Accumulation Station

It’s been a busy month at Ebb HQ. Technically, I shouldn’t even be writing right now, but if I don’t dump some of these images and words now, they’ll fester. June began with me preparing a presentation about the ghosts of the Moscow Kremlin for an event hosted by Doctor Paul Koudounaris at the Hyperion Tavern here in LA. Initially, I dove into one of my favorite subjects: Russian folklore, but was quickly reminded that it’s actually fairly stingy with …

Photo Flurry 106 – Malibu Expedition

Saturday began with me admiring freshly-packaged stacks of Spacefriends. Cunch and I spent an entire day hand-packing these bad babies, so a degree of gloating was befitting. After the sticker revelry, Ales, Daniel, Sonya the dog and I drove out to Malibu for a picnic-n-hike adventure. I’d just had another mortality crisis, so physical activity and getting in close touch with the universe was more than necessary. There was salmon. There was also caramel and sea salt chocolate, home-made guacamole, …
