Subscribe to the Biorequiem Mailing List

As 2011 nears its conclusion and the Biorequiem shop empties in preparation for 2012, I’m thinking of various changes and improvements to the way this site works. [Image source] You may have noticed that I’m slowing my blogging roll to focus on art. Though I will continue to post articles as time allows, I also plan to increase my creative output. This could mean stuff like little flash sales just for dedicated readers, last-minute announcements and other news – which …

Good mooorning! HUGE news today, mein peeps: Coilhouse Issue SixSixSix is finally here and available for purchase while our limited supplies last. Join the black and white and red parade as we march through an angular Constructivist/Futurist/Expressionist landscape where originality and oddity rule.  There are interviews with the ultra well-known and loved, and with the scrumptiously subterranean.

D4RT – To The Wire

This is IT. The home stretch, the final 4 days of the fist D4RT Kickstarter. If you were planning on backing/blogging/tweeting/Facebooking/can-and-stringing about this, the time is now. We’re at $7,233, which means D4RT Yantaló is in good shape! My shopping list is ready, I’m consulting with several child educators, talking to representatives of the Yantaló school, and all other related wheels are in motion. I met with Luis Vaszquez of the Yantaló Peru Foundation over the weekend and am more excited for …

D4RT Video Outtakes, Round 1

When making my video for the D4RT Kisckstarter project, videographer extraordinaire Josh Gibson and I shot hours of footage, much of it consisting of long takes we ruthlessly chopped into bite-sized chunks for the final cut. Going through the footage this week between work and Yantaló-trip-planning, and will be posting some of it here for the curious. And while we’re at it, if you have a Vimeo account, add me, yes? You know, just in case I ever get my own video camera.

D4RT Kickstarter Page is Live!

The D4RT Kickstarter page is now live! If you’re tuning in for the first time, I’m in the process of creating an international mobile art workshop aimed at bringing art education and public art projects to struggling communities all over the world. This September, I want to bring D4RT to Yanlató – a village in the heart of the peruvian jungle. Some time ago, I met a group of documentary filmmakers working on a film about Yantalo. This meeting instilled an idea …

Tattoo Commission Ethics

In response to my Hearltess crest tattoo design, Biorequiem reader Alyssa asks: As a huge (silent, lurking type) fan of your various artistic endeavors, this is really astounding for me. How do you feel about people other than the commissioner having your work tattooed on them? A timely question! Since I’ve been on a tattoo commission kick lately, I’ve gotten lots of positive feedback from my readers. Awesome! I’ve also run into a curious ethical issue: folks asking if they can …

You, the Living

If today is a day of underscored grief, if you’re having a difficult time dealing with someone’s death, or if you’re in need of a general positivity grenade – this is for you. Today is my first Father’s Day without a living father. When he died in March, I received an outpouring of comments and emails and calls and offers of support, a flood of positive words and energy. These things, coupled with my memorial trip to Denver turned the …

Mmmf 008 – Gourmet Sandwiches Decrypted

When we were tasked with providing lunch sandwiches for day 2 of Hicksville, I knew I’d need to step it up. I rarely eat bread and loathe most sandwiches, with the rare exception of tea sandwiches and fancy gourmet fare. Because I suffer from an acute case of the fancies, you see. The only experience I’d had with preparing this sort of thing was the time we made cucumber-goat-cheese sandwiches for our housewarming party, so this was a fun challenge. …

Photo Flurry 073 – Losing Goth Points in Hicksville

Last weekend, a bunch of friends and I packed our finest bikinis, meats and libations to spend a weekend in Hicksville – a desert “trailer palace” in Joshua Tree. Now, Hicksville is my new favorite place for glamping – that’s glamour-camping to you. Why glamping at Hicksville is good: you get the desert, a fire pit, s’mores and cooking under the infinite stars, but you also get a salt water swimming pool, a rooftop jacuzzi, WiFi, plumbing and adorable themed …

Blush Response 021 – Tropical Nebula

Today’s eye makeup is inspired by nebulae and the tropics; a scorching mix of hot pink, orange and bright yellow, which I’ve been wanting to showcase for a while now. Shooting Haute Macabre’s new collaboration with RockLove Jewelry made for a good enough reason to do this. Besides, it’s summer, and a section of my hair is a complementary purple at the moment – all stars aligned, so to speak. This dramatic look is easy and fast, because we’ll be …

Mixed Sack of Wonders

Writing from the heart of the storm, where the dust is swirlin’ and is shows no sign of settling. At least I have new wood-framed glasses from Spex Club, which I dig for light eyebrows days. IPHONE CASES My iPhone cases are coming. I can’t show them to you yet, but these are the featured designs, though they won’t be released at once. TRAVEL Still catching up on freelance while attempting to plan my trip to Europe. It’s a quick …
