Cosmo/Tearsheet, Project Runway, Wesbite

1. Apparently, Barnes and Noble doesn't sell German Cosmo. Haven't checked with Borders or Juicy News, as I will be receiving a few copies directly from the editor. If you're stateside, try:,inhalt/

Then, just click on the curled page in the corner until you see kinky dolls. Those are mine.

2. Heather Riley, the glorious Managing Editor over at Box Magazine ( has informed me that those naughty flip books we published a year ago are part of a gift bag at a party thrown by Christian, one of the contestants/finalists on this season's "Project Runway." I really like Christian. There were some stand-outs this season (Jillian was creative, poised, and seemed to "come from good cloth" [har har], Chris March is 100% camp and 100% fabulous, and Sweet Pea really help her own towards the end), but Christian might be my favorite. Looking aside from the fact that we're both very young in relation to our peers/competition in our respective fields (but still holding our own), he's an AMAZING designer. Plus, he's just so damn adorable, which sounds a little weird given that I'm only two years older than him. So, if you're Christian, or someone who knows Christian enough to go to his party, and you found me through a dirty flipbook: Hi!

To the noobs, here's a quick summary so you don't have to pour over years of blog posts: I'm 23, I live in Berkeley with "The Boy" (whom I've been dating since we we re zygotes), I'm a photography autodidact, I've been shooting professionally since I was 19, most of that spent shooting people fucking. It served me well, got me a few book covers, a few awards, and a few fans, but I wanted something more challenging, so I switched to fashion photography a few months ago. My degree is in Art History with a concentration in feminist/erotic art history. I keep an archive of crazy emails people send me, and few people in the "blogosphere" (did I just lose my street cred?) know what I actually look like, other than being very tall. The website is in limbo right now, but I've posted my latest fashion work here for your convenience. If you read a little further down, you'll know I'll have about a billion new shots by mid-March. And that, in a nutshell, is me.

2. People who know me I'm in a predicament regarding my computer. My computer is OLD. A sexy Mac, but old nonetheless. Also running out of room and painfully slow. it's what I can't update my website with all the great, new, editorial-quality fashion work I've *ahem* been shooting. I mean, let's be honest, there's some real crap on my site. What to do....what to do...Rumor has it that the new MBPs will have new Montevina processors, but those won't get "released" until June, which means probably not available for sale until July/August in time for the "Back to School" rush. If I get a new computer now, it will still be much, much better than what I have now, but it could be better. Do I wait? Do I cave? Thoughts?

You're only 23, and self-taught to boot? Wow! Now I'm even more in awe of your talent.
