About

A Monster Outlet

I figured out halfway through photography school that I wasn't all that interested in taking pictures. What I really loved doing was to manipulate, superimpose, draw on top of - basically, I loved to mess with the images after I shot them. While in school I was a non-stop doodler, making monsters come out of my notes in every class. I decided to see what would happen when I combined the two - and that's what I've been doing ever since.
Usually, I start with a drawing, scan it, and then layer my photographs on top. I work with a Wacom tablet in Photoshop, and then digitally paint to blend the elements together. My alter-ego as a photography retoucher has given me pretty extensive photo-manipulation skills, so I'm able to really push the pixels around till I get it looking exactly like I want it.
I print my cards, books, and prints myself, using archival pigment inks and high quality fine art matte or photo rag paper, with a professional giclee printer. The pop up cards are individually cut and assembled by hand. The picture books are also trimmed, sewn, glued, and assembled by me in my studio.
