A shot from last March.
I used this image for the cover of a book I designed last march.
Nectar Magazine has gotten more submissions for “Most of Us Die” so far than we got in total for “Evidence of Home”. This issue is going to be big. Submissions are open until June.
On a personal note, this semester has been really intense. I’ve got 3 part time jobs, a volunteer job, and starting this magazine. On top of that, being a full time student and trying to work on my thesis. It’s tiring but when I accomplish a lot, it is very satisfying. I’m excited to graduate and be able to relax without feeling guilty.
Shot from last week. I have the most patient model in the world. I swear.
Nectar Magazine is getting way more submissions for issue #2 than for “Evidence of Home”. With more than 3 months left, I can’t wait to see all of the work that we get! I posted some of our recent submissions on Nectar’s site, check it out:
Unrelated, but cool: Check out Die Antwoord’s latest video, directed by amazing photographer Roger Ballen. Creepy and catchy and all around great.
Nectar Magazine’s theme “Evidence of Home” closed on February 1. We are in the process of designing the issue and while that process is going on, we started to accept submissions for our second issue. The theme is:
Most of Us Die

Image for the poster is from my thesis series
Another recent thesis image. Just did another shoot today, of legs. More on that when those get developed.
Nectar Magazine closed submissions for its first issue. Over 100 people submitted, which is pretty good for coming up with the idea 4 months ago and having zero advertising budget. It can only grow from here. I’ve got some neat ideas about the next issue, but everything will have to be finalized before it can be released.
I hope everyone’s year was as good as mine was. Of course there were stress and deadlines, but overall I loved it.
The deadline for Nectar’s first issue is February 1, so that’s only a month away.
I am currently in the process of creating an issue-themed art magazine, that will include photos, writing, drawing, painting, illustration, graphic design, sculpture, film stills, etc.
The current theme is titled Evidence of Home. We are planning to get it out by mid-May. Maybe earlier depending on how big it turns out to be. The more submissions we get the better it will be.
Check it out and spread the word!
