On The Road Again…

I am in Vegas and LA for the next two weeks. I won’t be updating the main page while I am out of town but I will be making regular smaller updates over on my special Road Trip blog which I use when I am out of town for extended periods of time.

One of the reasons I am out of town is for the LA Art Book Fair next week and I will be updating this post once I have all the details about the events I am doing for that. In the mean time…

Adriana Chechik

Next week I am headed to LA and Las Vegas for the AVN Awards and the LA Art Book Fair. I got some cool stuff going on and I am hopefully gonna shoot a bunch of naked babes. One person I know I am gonna see is my buddy Adriana Chechik so I figured I should get these photos I shot of her this summer.

She was in NYC to do the Howard Stern and she had me come by her hotel room for a quick photo shoot while she chugged Bombay Sapphire and had phone sex with one of the people who pay her an unreasonable amount of money to talk to her on the phone. I took a bunch of photos but we were really just hanging out while I happened to be photographing her and she happened to be naked. It was a good time and then we got pancakes. (She is of course in Dinner With Igor.)

Now photographically I am not super proud of these photos. The light in the hotel room sucked and one of the disadvantages of being too impatient to use proper photo lighting is that sometimes your photos look like shit. Fortunately for both of us you don’t actually care what my photos look like as long as there is a hot girl in them and Adriana is really hot. Also there are a bunch of really funny photos of her chugging on a bottle of a gin and crying.

On top of that Adriana doesn’t really know how to pose for photos without shoving her vagina in your camera lens every few seconds so there are a ton of bonus extra dirty shots that I saved just for the Girls of Driven By Boredom app. I gotta keep it classy around here right?

Now click here to see all the NSFW photos of the babe Adriana Chechik.

Dinner With Igor Release Party – 1.8.15

Despite it being 16 degrees out the book release party for Dinner With Igor and Food Tattoos was pretty fucking awesome:  Free booze, cheap tattoos, cupcakes with my face on them and an appropriate amount of nudity. When I am throwing a party I tend to take significantly worse photos but I still took some and you should look at them.

It was the opening night of Prince Terrence and Haruka Salt’s new party Club 81 at the Woods and the first few hours were reserved for my book parties. I had a few cute girls selling books (Thanks!) and took some mildly dirty photos of them in the bathroom which is always nice to get back to my roots and all. I had the super babe Ashley Holt make cupcakes with photos from the book on them so people were eating my face all night. And then of course we had the food tattoos!

You guys should go get tattooed by Chris Johnson at Venus Body Works in the Lower East Side and Rukus at Black Square Tattoo in Williamsburg Brooklyn because those dudes killed it with the $40 food tattoos all night. Chris started the night of with a sushi tattoo near this cute girls vagina so I knew the party was going to be good right away. Rukus ended the night by tattooing a terrifying anthropomorphic sandwich on my leg. It was a blast. Go hunt those dudes down cause they killed it. Tell em I sent you and you might get a hand job out of the deal.

Huge thanks to Terry, Haruka and the Woods for making this party happen and Tullamore Dew for the free booze. Obviously huge thanks to the girls selling my book for almost nothing. Thanks to the tattoo artists for tattooing in a bar despite good common sense. Thanks to Inked, Vice, Village Voice, Flavorpill and Shaw Promotions for getting the word out about this madness. Thanks to Ashley Holt for the most Instagrammed cupcakes ever and essentially making them for a free radish tattoo. And of course thanks to all my friends and fans that came out and bought the book.  You guys rule.

Now go to my etsy store and buy a book or two from me!!

Food Tattoos

If you don’t know by now that I am having a release party for my new book Dinner With Igor you probably aren’t looking at my website which would mean you can’t possibly be reading this sentence. But I will remind you again anyway. Dinner With Igor comes out tonight at 10pm at the Woods in Brooklyn.

But you know what else comes out tonight? Food Tattoos! Food Tattoos is my slightly less hyped zine that is hopefully the first in many full color zines. I am really happy with how it turned out and I have done a tiny bit of press for it this week.

Inked Magazine did a short interview with me about it the other day and Vice Magazine ran a gallery of photos from the zine.  The best part of those articles is that strangers keep Tweeting me their food tattoos which I love since I love food tattoos.

Come get your own food tattoos tonight! $40 for any tattoo on this flash sheet by Chris Johnson or this flash sheet by Rukus. Make sure to show up early cause I have a feeling there are going to be a bunch of people wanting cheap, rad tattoos. I know I am gonna try and get one if I have time…

Here are a couple more write ups about the event:  Village VoiceFlavorpillShaw Promotions

I hope to see a bunch of you at the event and take your picture. If you have a food tattoo bring it so I can take your photo. Perhaps there will be a second issue!

Now here are the links to buy books: Dinner With IgorFood TattoosDinner With Igor/Food Tattoos set

Lastly, here is a big gallery of 35mm food tattoo photos. I put this together for the Vice gallery but I didn’t send all of them so this gallery has everything that ran on Vice plus a bunch more. But not all the ones in Food Tattoos… You need to buy a zine for that!

Dinner With Igor Release Party!

Dinner With Igor officially comes out on Thursday! The book, 7 years in the making, of nothing but photos of people eating is a reality. I somehow raised nearly $6000 on Kickstarter and with that money I was able to make the book bigger and better, create a SECOND (although much smaller) publication called Food Tattoos AND I was able to throw this sweet party you are about to read about.

The Dinner With Igor and Food Tattoos release party is happening this Thursday at The Woods in Williamsburg Brooklyn. It starts at 10 and technically goes until 1am but the party will continue until 4am. It cost $5 unless you donated to the Kickstarter or are in the book. The Kickstarter peoples are already on the guest list but if I told you that you are in the book and you want to come let me know and I will put you on the list.

We are doing $40 food tattoos! Come early to get tattooed. I have a feeling there will be a line. Plus there is an open bar from 10-11 so getting there early is a sound investment.

I got Cap Chris Johnson from Venus Body Arts and Rukus from Black Square Tattoo there from 10pm – 1am although they might go later if you guys are tipping them well. They will also be doing $20 Driven By Boredom tattoos!

Now a food party wouldn’t be complete without food so we have food supplied by Landhaus and free cupcakes from the super sexy Ashley Holt who won Next Great Baker season 3. I am both a huge fan of Ashley and reality shows about food so I was psyched that she won. And now she will be giving you cupcakes with my photos on them so that is really important.

This party is actually the launch of Prince Terrence and Haruka Salt’s new weekly Downtown 81 themed party Club 81. So they will be DJing during my half of the party and then they will be keeping the party going until 4. There’s another late night after party and I will be there all night taking photos so stick around!

I feel like that is all the info I can offer and you probably won’t read all this anyway so let’s just get to the flyer and Chris’ lovely flash sheet. Remember any of these tattoos are just $40!

Oh and if you can’t make the party you can get both books here!

Yesenia On 35mm

I shot Yesenia Linares for the first time years ago. I was really sick and ended up shooting her in the corner of my living room as I died on a couch. We really hit it off and became pretty good friends but for some reason we never took photos again. I think she likes me more than my photography and she has sort of blown up as a model so I get it but I finally convinced her to take some photos with me again.

I went over to her place in Brooklyn and I decided I would shoot three rolls of black and white film. I had seven rolls ready to drop off and my photo lab gives me a discount for 10 rolls or more so it seemed like a great reason to shoot some film. I try and make an effort to shoot a few rolls of black and white every month but it doesn’t always happen.

When I got to Yesenia’s place we sort of shot the shit for a while and she made us coffee and by the time we started shooting it was already getting darker in her place. By the time I had finished the second roll it was too dark even with my very fast lens. I had taken a couple of photos of her with my point and shoot camera loaded with color film and it gave me an idea.

Yesenia laughs more than any person I have ever met. It’s one of the reasons she is so much fun to hang out with. I had an idea to finish the color roll of her in front of a white wall but every photo I took would be while she was laughing. My point and shoot camera has a flash the lack of light wouldn’t matter.

So in this gallery you have the results of two rolls of black and white film and one roll of color. The black and white images are soft and pretty and the color ones are harsh with flash and really kind of lovely. I think you are going to enjoy them.

As always there are a few exclusive images saved just for the Girls of Driven By Boredom App. They are in higher resolution too. I put the app on sale for Christmas and it did so well that I am extending the 20% off sale until New Years Day. Use code “dbb” for the discount and get a ton of exclusive high res content like the app only Andy San Dimas set I just posted!

Now click here to see the NSFW 35mm images of the lovely Yesenia Linares!

Ps. Yesenia is in my new book eating fried chicken. You should buy it. It ships next week.

The Lost Andy San Dimas Set

Many years ago I got to photograph Andy San Dimas for the first time. I went over to her place and we shot on the roof of her apartment in Los Angeles. It was very hot and very bright and theoretically anyone could have come up at any moment so we had to shoot fairly quickly. Andy is such a babe but I didn’t realize that it was going to become one of my favorite sets ever. Andy loved it too and she told me that she once met a serious boyfriend because he contacted her after seeing the pictures.

After we shot we went into her bedroom and shot an intentionally amateur looking set that was supposed to end up as a “DIY” set on Gods Girls. I shot the set mostly with my on camera flash which makes it look like it was shot by just a “guy with camera” as they say in the business (of creepy dudes like myself photographing naked girls).

The set was also a lot more explicit than I normally shoot. Andy was rolling around her bed and I was shooting the kinda stuff I would shoot if I was photographing someone for “personal use”. The whole thing came out looking like some really sexy homemade porn. I have no idea why it never ended up on Gods Girls but I think I just forgot about it.

I knew I could never post it on my site because it didn’t look even slightly professional and it was much more graphic than anything I would publish here. Fortunately I have an app and I have been posting some of the more hardcore outtakes on there and this seemed like the perfect place for this set. I am really glad I found it when looking through old photos!

Nothing says Christmas like Andy San Dimas’ vagina so I decided to have a sale on my app until Christmas. Get yourself something for the holidays!

Download the Girls of Driven By Boredom mobile app and get 20% off using the code “dbb”! Not only does it have nearly 80 insanely hot photos of Andy San Dimas, but it also has 225 other sets featuring high resolution images, hands free browsing and a ton of exclusive, extra graphic, content. It works on all smart phones and just on your home computer if for some reason you don’t want to be looking at porn during meetings at work.

I know some of you are homeless and can’t afford the $5 it takes to get my app and keep me working so I posted a fairly tame preview gallery. If you like these shots just imagine 65 more photos (in twice the resolution) of her being much more creepy. I assure you they are worth signing up to my app for. Remember, use the code “dbb” for 20% off!

Now click here to see the reasonably NSFW preview of the lost Andy San Dimas set and then go sign up for my app for the fun stuff!

Ps. Andy is retired and goes by Sarah now.

Book Updates, Food Tattoos & Art Criticism

I got the copies of my new book Dinner With Igor on Friday. They were supposed to come today so that was a pleasant surprise. Unfortunately there was a small print error which and I had to get the books reprinted. Fortunately my printer MGX Copy was great about it and put a rush order on the reprint and the books will be in my hands on Thursday.

On top of that, I will also be getting my 36 page zine “Food Tattoos” from MGX the same day. I am pretty excited about both projects and I can’t wait until you get your hands on them. If you were one of my Kickstarter backers your books will ship Friday, Saturday Monday and Tuesday (hopefully I will get them all done by Tuesday)!

Because of the holidays I am pushing my book release party to January but you can still preorder both Dinner With Igor and Food Tattoos at my Etsy store!

You can get signed versions of them both at a discount if you click right here!

Lastly, I should mention that I am giving a 10 minute talk about the books and some other projects on Wednesday as part of the monthly Bushwick Art Crit Group session. I truly hate talking about my work especially around actual fine artists, but for some reason I agreed to do it, so it should be interesting at the very least. Plus Wizard Skull is talking right after me and that guy spends his days ruining your childhood and that’s worth the price of admission alone (it’s free). So if anyone is bored in Brooklyn on Wednesday come hang out!

Spank Rock Upside Album Release – 12.9.14

On Tuesday Spank Rock released his new EP The Upside at Baby’s All Right. Spank Rock as always put on an awesome show and you can get The Upside right here. It’s amazing that Spank Rock isn’t one of the biggest names in music. He constantly puts out great music and has a great live show. Plus my dude Johnny Nelson is his hype man and Amanda Blank rules as well.

My old friend Contessa Suto aka Cunt Mafia opened the show with Lil Internet and put on the supremely weird and wild show she is becoming known for. She played half the set topless and had people moshing to her “trap metal” jams like Reign In Ratchet. Even if you hate Cunt Mafia’s music the show is very worth seeing.

Roxy Cottontail, Mike Q, Blue Jemz & Eli Escobar DJ’d the after party but unfortunately I got some pretty shitty news right after the show so I had to bounce early. I didn’t really feel like partying after that. But even with the shitty news it was a fun night and I got to see a lot of people I hadn’t seen in ages.

Now you guys should go look at these photos while I add some new photos to the Girls of DBB App.
