Right now, just online through my site. Publishers were looking to take a crazy high percent, so I decided since it’s my first book I’ll self publish. I’m really happy I did that, I might look into something else if I work on another book sometime though, because it is a lot of effort haha.
Also heres a link to the book!

Haa the cockroaches really grossed me out at first. I bought like a dozen online, and they accidentally sent me the order twice so I had a huge tub of cockroaches. Theres definitely this innate visceral reaction to huge bugs like that, so it took me a few days to get used to it. Also they hiss and run around like crazy most of the time you touch them so I’d flinch every time I handled one. I think it’s important to push your boundaries, so I like to shoot things that makes me uncomfortable. Same with lighting myself on fire, or going in cold water, or photos in very public places, or sleeping in some abandoned houses and all that. Just trying to push my boundaries and let it reflect in my work

Hmmm just try to develop more of a personal style. Try to create work that reflects you rather than taking to much inspiration from other art. I guess just post very often (which I know I’ve been bad at lately haha), and stay consistent with your work so people will recognize your work when they see it.

I moved to Portland this week and I am so exhausted. I’m building a set for my new series with a friend though and should post it this week!
