Tilt-Shift LA is a complete success! The installation of the artworks turned out fantastic. The opening reception was packed with a crowd of interesting and engaging people. Old friends and new turned up to show support. The highlight of the evening was the intense and exciting performance by Our Lady J.

Box of Books: Hammer Edition
Workshop (pre-registration required): 12-3pm
Release party with live performance by Dunes: 3-4pm
Hammer Museum

Hammer Student Association (HSA) invited me to give a 'zine making workshop. From concept to execution, attendees learned self-publishing in one afternoon. The end result was an edition of 100 boxes containing all of the 'zines created. It was a blast! 29 UCLA students registered and attended, a ton of HSA volunteers helped out, and Dunes played a live set during the release party. It was an inspired and enthusiastic group, and the quality and variety of the 'zines produced is truly amazing. Thank you to everyone who came out to participate and support this workshop.
