Greetings! How’s it going? It’s been awhile since I updated this—which is proving somewhat of a habit, isn’t it?
I just wanted to share a little bit of news. Recently, I had the opportunity to do an interview with VoyageLA Magazine. They’re an online/print platform dedicated to sharing the stories of artists and creatives in the Greater Los Angeles Area. (Voyage has been so popular, actually, that they do this in other cities now as well.) Honestly, it’s a mission I like, too.
Here’s a bit about VoyageLA from their own website:
We also think artists rock. We love small businesses, mom-n-pops, and hole-in-the-walls. We’re not snobs, but we aren’t fond of most chains. We think independent entrepreneurs, freelancers and other risk takers make our cities exciting to live in…
Accordingly our mission is to build a platform that fosters collaboration and support for small businesses, independent artists and entrepreneurs, local institutions and those that make our city interesting. We want to change the way people spend their money – rather than spending it with the big, cookie-cutter corporations we want them to spend their money with the independent, creative, local entrepreneurs, small businesses and artists.
VoyageLA is a word-of-mouth project. Largely driven by the artists they feature, in turn, suggesting other artists to highlight and admire. (Definitely millennial, I’d say.) But as word-of-mouth is how a lot of queer-centric art still grows, I can see the wonder and madness of supporting such a project. Plus, my model friend, Alex Chau, is the one who recommended me to them.
You’ll find the link to my INTERVIEW HERE. I’m in the “Hollywood Stories” section. It’s kinda funny.
I also wanted to drop in a few images from my latest session with Alex. As he’s the one who made all this possible, it seems only right to highlight our recent work. Enjoy!
