The top events newspaper in Los Angeles, the LA Weekly, selected the California Deathrock book signing party at La Luz as its spotlight pick event of the week. “The portraits in this Kickstarter-funded tome capture more than spiked hair and elaborate makeup.

One night, internationally renown deathrock DJ, Ghoul School nightclub promoter, and Deathrock.com dude Mark Splatter and I went out on the town together. The moment he saw the first prototype California Deathrock T-shirt, he just had to strip down on the sidewalk and put it on. He was even kind enough to let me use […]
Forrest Black and I kickstarted the California Deathrock book. Here is the original Kickstarter video for this project. I was so nervous having to be on video. I actually kinda like looking at it now though. It is still useful for the background it gives about the project.
Forrest and I have been going through the first proof. There are the usual expected assortment of minor things to tweak. Each of those little colored stickies is for something we want to adjust. We are super excited over all. The colors pop and it just looks really good. Can’t wait to get to share […]
