NEW DAVID BOWIE, JAMES DEAN AND CACTUS PRINTS!
Bookfair For Independent West Coast Publishers
LA PAGES art book fair is taking place today at Mayra's Banquet Hall! @deadinhollywoodzine and I will be here all day! Come down and scoop up some incredible zines in great company with great DJs and great food!
David and I visited the site of the infamous ‘Battle of North Hollywood’. The Bank of America shootout was the longest and bloodiest in American police history and is the focus of the latest Dead in Hollywood zine by Castroburger.
Robert Plant has taken root in my brain. I recently shazamed 'Bones of Saints' (2017), 'In The Mood' (1983) and the almighty 'Rainbow' (2014) without realizing the triple urge. All from the brilliant KCSN 88.5FM.
If pianist, composer, and arranger Horace Silver's 1972 album 'The United States Of Mind' was my most inspirational discovery of 2017 then DJ, record producer and musician Larry Heard's 1996 album 'Alien' might be 2018’s.
It seemed fitting that my first print in a while be one that represents my intermittent, ghostly creative presence. This photo was taken on a large format camera at the 'Day of the Dead' festival at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
