I'm a New York based artist who primarily works with my finger on an iPad. Using a simple drawing app, I document the pop culture and politics of the moment refracted through a queer gaze. My work is often based on photo references which I deconstruct and recolor to render them more immediate and dynamic. I use my Instagram account as a visual blog of the times as I see them; drag queens, hip hop, politics, R&B divas, Hollywood, fashion, trash culture are my fascinations and my subjects.
