I took a solo trip to the Hill Country this past weekend and spent some time on the banks of two great bodies of water. These somehow look like paintings to me.

My girlfriend Leigh Patterson is the editor of Synonym Journal. Issue 3 is now available for order and physically stocked in a handful of fine shops worldwide. Following a central thematic structure around the idea of “cliffhanger”, this issue explores the particulars of unfinished endings, suspense, physical reactions to the sensory, melodrama, etc and features work by Rachel Albright, Lou Benesch, Brian Ferry, and Brion Nuda Rosch among others. Highly recommended.
More info + ordering here.
Last Sunday, the inaugural E 2nd Street Flea took place in Austin. Housed in the warehouse adjacent to Sam Hill, over a dozen local vendors (Farewell Books, Flattrack Coffee, Traveler Denim, Lumiere Tintype, and Watchman Woodworks among others) set up temporary shop to display their wares.
What was originally shot for a now defunct Nothing Major, here is a feature on the downtown shop and gallery space for the amazing, Ooga Booga. Located just east of the LA River on S. Mission, the shop houses an elaborate collection of art books, journals and zines; a gleaming mine of thoughtful publications. The shop’s adjacent gallery space boasts massive square footage and an on-going program of unique exhibitions from reputable artists (Laura Owens’ “12 Paintings” show pictured above).
More on Ooga Booga via their blog.
Some recent portraits of my friend, Rachel. You may remember her from a 2011 shoot I did for Bows + Arrows.
Been catching my breath the last couple weeks. A lot of works pending, so please stay tuned. Here’s a shot I snapped during some photo work Leigh was doing for Spartan.

A few months ago, I had the distinct pleasure of visiting the new Filson headquarters. The well-lit factory is on the bottom floor with the offices and showrooms above in the beautiful warehouse just south of downtown Seattle. Renown for their heritage (c. 1897) and quality of outdoor goods and luggage, Filson is bigger and better than ever.
The above photos are an addendum from the original feature on Nothing Major.
FELIZ is a design pop-up organized by my girlfriend (Leigh Patterson), featuring 35 different designers and artists from TX and around the USA.
The event is meant to connect the Austin creative community with individual people creating interesting work.

I’ve had the pleasure of traveling and playing for the past few weeks with JBM. Hailing originally from Montreal and residing primarily in Brooklyn for the past half-decade, JBM’s music is one that both haunts and intrigues the human spirit. Highly Recommended.
Above are some photos from recent shows and a video session featuring a track from his 2012 release, Stray Ashes.
More on JBM here.
Above are the 12 photos that were printed for this show.
They are all 12×18″ chromira prints in custom, handmade frames from Hat Trick Woodworking and a few are still available for purchase.
Please check in at Spartan for more info and availability.
