colorblind

June 15th, 2019


Describing colors to the mister has made for what must sound to passers by like some exceptionally surreal conversations. (Ps: If the pink of red is light red, then the pink of lime is…)

notes from france: merci à vous

November 18th, 2018

darkroom

September 28th, 2017

From my sketchbook. When I was in high school, my family was numerous, loud, and chaotic. The darkroom was the only place in the house (besides the toilet!) I didn’t have to let the little kids into. I’d put on music and feel sly and enjoy being by myself.
