I made a series of videos for PICKLE DAY, the Lower East Side’s annual festival all about Pickles. I am the official festival mascot, and worked with my lovely friend Gage to make this costume. (He really did most of the werk) and then worked with a lovely DP to capture this footage. Most of the videos are edited by me, except the gangster Pickle vid, and the ‘Show me the way to pickle day’ video. (I however did write the song.) click the title for a link to the video!
I have begun creating works inspired by love of the greek pantheon. Here I have finished Hermes, Apollo and Persephone.
I tore a bunch of the cartilage out of my knee, and have been meditating on the experience of healing. Using just erasers and layers I chose to explore how the body reveals itself.

This is a single series , in progress, about the methodology behind gif creation. Based off a poem I wrote on the L train. I’ve only animated the first verse which is.
“I made it with a photo that I cut in Photoshop // then i mixed it with some acid // and my mind all mixed it up // now their are wings on cups of cabbages // this tiger is the moon // and this planet made of rainbows is cavorting with a spoon.’
This series explores single narrative comic-book inspired gif creations. Coming soon will be the full length episode of an animated series I’m developing out of these explorations.

most of these images are of me and were shot by one of my many talented friends in NYC, I did all the styling for the original images. Some of the images were a little corrupted when i was uploading them, am working on figuring out how to upload larger files to this Website, but I’m not yet a web programmer. Please feel free to ask me questions.
