& now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been.

post the CASP fundraiser (click to view photographs from that awesome event), ringing in the new year with the best, Carol Ann Smith (@carolannchristine) with fresh orange juice for mimosas & vegetarian black-eyed-peas ❤️
The goal of Help-Portrait is to find people in need, take their picture, print their picture and then deliver it—free of charge. Help-Portrait is about GIVING the pictures, not taking them. These portraits aren’t for a portfolio, website, or sale. It’s about giving people who otherwise couldn’t afford photography, a chance to capture a moment, a memory…and a whole lot more.
Very excited to volunteer as a professional photographer with The AIGA West Texas Future Chapter for Design to participate in my first Help-Portrait event!
Event Timing: Saturday, December 1, 2018
10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Event Address: LHUCA Warehouse, 602 Texas Ave., Lubbock, TX 79401
letterpress collaboration with Adam Mulsow
letterpress printed two editions of posters for Beto O’Rourke’s 2018 campaign for senate, raising over a thousand dollars plus, thru donations made at VMBEE’s Studio 4 during November’s First Friday Art Trail, through election day, & beyond.
Y’ALL... #allthefeels #forthereals #letterpressforever 💖 so, I have lots to post from not only last night/week, but how ink filled the last three Octobers have been here in the LBK, because I just love prints so damn much, but this... THIS MADE MY NIGHT / WEEK / YEARS: Lila, one of the most amazing best kids EVER, comes up to me at the October First Friday Art Trail - CASP UFOs OVER LUBBOCK inkslinger event, & gives me this beyond cool drawing of my golden retriever asking if she can trade it for my print about red hair because she loves that print so much & this....this, makes me so full of joy & reminds me why I love all of this so much & I’m just speechless & #happytears 😍😍😍 it’s going to always & forever be in whatever sketchbook I’m using at the time is (here it is on top of my current Baron Fig, w/ stickers of a few of my favorite things & the ribbon has a button of Andy Warhol eating a cheeseburger), alongside the other most important picture to me (my bee grandparents in NOLA) & lots of #love & more soon ✨
