There's Always Money In The Banana Stand


So me and my partner in crime descreetly released our local music and arts zine (There's Always Money In The Banana Stand). It's been way under the radar for the past number of months and we've finally decided to share more. If you'd like a copy we're doing the old school hand to mouth method of payment. Send 5 bucks (cash) to "AMIA" PO Box 10699 Spokane, WA 99209 with a return address and we'll send it to your doorstep. You'll definitely want this Meaty little piece of history featuring interviews with rad local artists/musicians (DJ Kain Bridge One, Moriah Ramirez, Allen Duffy, Bandit Train, Jason Bagge, Jason Bash, Seth Ramirez, Chris Dreyer and more...) 
Available until they're gone.
38 page staple bound.

Film image of Milo in December's Ghettoblaster Mag

Pretty cool thing currently happening. One of my film images I shot of rapper, Milo, is featured alongside his story in December's Ghettoblaster Magazine (issue 42). Thank you David Obenour!

I know hard copies are available at our local Barnes & Noble for sure. Get at one! ... or follow this rad music and culture magazine on FB, Twitter, or Instagram.

Windstorm 2015 (documentation of my cold, dark, nights).

After a severe windstorm rolled through the Inland Northwest (including Spokane) last Tuesday afternoon leaving major damage and 3 deaths, it left me and thousands of locals without power. 8 days later, I'm super thankful to have power back and reconnected. I hope you locals were all safe.

Night 1:
The power went out. Wow. This is fun.

Night 2:
Cold dinner with cold aliens.

Night 3:
Looking for book lights down in the basement. Came across an old bin of Barbies. Why do they always have to end up mangled and naked??

Night 4:
Pre-internet fun.

Night 5:
Fine dining.

Night 6:
Oh Rhodes, how do I love thee...

Night 7:
Reading through my print exchanges. God I love mail. 

Night 8:
My birthday party.

Zero Friends

One time I was wearing my Zero Friends hoodie at The Bon Bon and someone came up and told me that they would be my friend. I said, "Thank you so much!" (true story)

In 2013 I began meshing my film photography and segments of my collages together forming some abstract/surreal photomontage/collages. For the first time, they are available in a group showing titled $100 or Less Art Candy down at Satellite Diner. The first two have already sold, and I'll be taking down three more fresh prints tomorrow. Of course I will always have prints available for purchase if interested...and yes. The monkey is a self-portrait. Haha.

2nd Annual To Define Is To Limit Recap

What a fun showing. Thanks to all of you that rolled through. Was fun meeting and chatting with you. We appreciate your support so much. A special thanks to Todd Bearden (owner of Paradigm) for backing me up for the 2nd year in a row...and letting us invade his shop! He really helps make it happen. Cool thing about this year was some of the guys salvaged a rail from UTF after it was demolished. Todd's idea was to anchor it from the ceiling to display the skate deck art. Looks so rad. Thanks also to Video Destroyer who did music/video art. You rock!
The artwork from each artist is incredible. We've got some amazing talent in this city. So proud. Thanks guys!! The showing runs through September 20th, so get down to Paradigm and check it out up close. There were a few decks already a sold today. Paradigm also stocked with supplies for your skating needs.

Until next year!
