For a few years we had done a free hotline for Halloween called Call Satan Live where people in Los Angeles could call and talk to Satan LIVE. For the release of issue 4 of Kill Pretty I decided to bring it to life. We took the door out of a room in a gallery and put up a glass door. On the inside I painted a red room, created some red stalagmites and a red desk. I had my friend who is a comedian wear realistic Satan make up. We put a cordless phone outside the door so people could talk to Satan but not enter the SATAN ROOM!
Immersive Magazine Release Performance
For the release of issue 5 of Kill Pretty I organized a team of 14 performers to create an immersive theater experience. Everyone had Kill Pretty uniforms, we built and designed an office and wrote a storyline. Through the night we had editorial meetings, focus groups, Karen’s birthday and our Employee of the Month tried to quit so we locked him in a cage. By the end of the night we hired 40 people that had come to the gallery and enlisted them to make their own issue of Kill Pretty which was sent out digitally after the event.
I've always been obsessed with cereal and the shape of cereal boxes. I loved the concept of a toy inside and the whole experience. I created my own cereal called Lucky Toast! The back has a board game with cut out dice and game piece. Each box comes with a toy hand picked by me.
Obsessive Pop Culture Discussion
I designed and built the backdrop for this web show. The budget was tight but with a raw brick wall and some nice blues I felt the end product was fun but not distracting.
I worked in the woodshop at Urban Outfitters for over a year. There I helped build all the fixtures, window displays and set pieces for the Melrose location. I learned everything about power tools and working in a woodshop there.
Issue #4 Release Party
I curated this wall of the Superchief gallery for the release of issue #4. Here are a few photos from the party and the Satan Room.
