It was only a matter of time before I figured out a way to make my hot dogs more gay than they already are. This was my first experiment with my new foiling station, which includes a laminator, an array of colorful holographic & rainbow foils and the pièce de résistance - a hefty laser printer!! That's right, I can finally print my own zines and business cards without having to depend a printshop! I feel so liberated, it's beyond glorious. I've wanted one since I published my first chapbook in 2012 and it feels really great to be in a place where I can justify the investment.
I'll be setting up an online shop next month where you can buy my zines, limited runs of foil prints and House of Egregious merch! Should I also sell hot dog stickers?

Recently I was commissioned to create some ghost art, and I challenged myself to use my new POSCA paint markers, which I've only used for street art and never for canvases. I'm actually shocked by how easy they are to blend and remove contrasting colors from the tips of their neon markers, especially sherberty orange/pink from my yellow marker when I used it to blend out the sunset. As long as you quickly brush off the blended color onto a clean paper towel and pump new paint once finished with the blend, the blended color comes almost completely off the marker tip! Also POSCA paint markers are much more inexpensive than their competitors, I'm scowling at you Krink, and still have a great color density to them.
I'm excited to hopefully do more of these. Feel free to reach out if you'd like a mini ghost painting of your own! I have three 5.5" x 5.5" canvases left.
