It’s time for #LightPaintingSF!

Tuesday April 22nd @DocPop & @Shalaco are teaming up with @LightBomber to host a fun bi-coastal light painting meet-up in SF & NY.
We’ll be hosting the West Coast edition of a night of light painting and long exposures you won’t want to miss. Whether you’re a light painting expert or have been dying to learn, this is your chance to come jam with some friends and fellow Instagrammers.

Mobile photographers, film fanatics, and DSLRs are all welcome.

We’ll be meeting up at the Cupid’s Span in Rincon Park Tuesday the 22nd at 7:30PM and doing a basic light painting demonstration with LightBomber an iPhone lightpainting app. Then we’ll break into small groups and create our own experimental masterpieces.

If we’re lucky, there may be an extra special surprise guest demonstrating some advanced tools and painting techniques.

It’s free, just bring your camera, tripod(if you have one) and whatever extra gear you may have. We’ll be sharing some light pens, tripods, and other toys for you to use. We’ll see you there!

The Punk Singer – A fantastic documentary about Kathleen Hanna, Bikini Kill, and the beginning of Riot Grrrl. I was just blown away by it, can’t suggest it enough for anyone.

My Sean Hayes remix

One of my all-time favorite Bay Area musicians, Sean Hayes, hooked me up with some stems for his song “Miss Her When I’m Gone” and asked me to do something with them. Sean’s stuff is folky and beautiful, but I had fun remixing it into this weird little jam. I’d been doing chiptune stuff so much that this was the first time I’d opened reason in a couple of years. I kind of missed it.

Stuff I learned from ANALOG:GLITCH


I had so much fun at the opening reception for my ANALOG:GLITCH show at Photobooth last week. I saw a lot of friends, sold a few pieces (!), drank, and enjoyed the awesome spread that The Galley provided. The show (and Photobooth itself) are closing this Sunday, so you still have a few more days to see the work.

A fan of dentists

Been There

Five years ago, after a trip to a local dentist, I drew this creepy piece depicting the view from a dentist’s chair.

A few years later, in the lobby of another local dentist, I spotted this painting:
