why not… plaster your face in papier mache?

DIRECTIONS: -Wrap head in plastic wrap. RECOMMENDED: Industrial-sized Cling Classic. -Adapt to lifestyle sans air. -Ask a discriminating preschooler to papier mache your skull. Bribe with gummy candy that you will no longer physically be capable of consuming. BONUS: Is child enrolled in Chelsea-based art daycare and/or descended from esteemed art collector/dealer? Ask for personal fingerprint indentations for investment purposes. -Let dry. -Frustrated, preferably on a gallery night Thursday, dig into papier mache just over...

a freelance recap

Fresh off my informal writing sabbatical in which I 1) quit my day job and 2) reformulated my life, I present an informal relaunch, plus recap on the self-effacing, cynical fashion criticism we left off on, because I missed initial contribution to both #normcore and that Kimye Vogue cover, and I’ve really genuinely pined after that unique self-employed opportunity to brush Uncle Eddy’s vegan cookie crumbs off my keyboard while sifting through eBay “research.” So without further ado,...

dispatch // bonneville speedway

Quick disclosure: I spent the majority of the day baking in a desert hotter than a two dollar pistol, sick with a sinus infection and seasonal allergies/asthma, but as I am the industrious daughter of Utah’s original pioneers, I did so with my chin held high, celebrating Zion and it’s accompanying barren wastelands, i.e. Wendover, Nevada, with only a few sad coughs and frowny faces begging for pity towards my travel partner. That said, I’m...
