Andrew’s 300th Meal at Casa Bonita Fundraiser/Party!

I have been going to Casa Bonita my whole life and the next visit will be my 300th! I celebrated with a huge event in conjunction with Casa Bonita as a fundraiser.
We raised $1800 for the Mariposa neighborhood’s Food Bridge International Marketplace.

Photos from the event are here!!! (upload yours if you have not already)
The date was Sunday, February 24th from Noon to 7 p.m. and was be in conjunction with the
NEXT Gallery Pretty in Pink group art show – celebrating all things Casa Bonita (2nd year in a row!)

We took over the Magic Show Theater all day with awesome things on the stage, including Mentalist Magician: Miss Claire Voyant!
I got to participate in gunfights with Black Bart and there were puppet shows featuring a puppet of me! I also crafted an amazing scavenger hunt!
All sorts of custom collectibles for the event were made and I even re-designed the old “floaty” cliff diver pens they used to have!
Special menu options for this event: Andrew’s Deluxe Dinner, sopaipilla toppings bar (first time ever) and Andrew’s Neapolitan Bandito! (chocolate/strawberry/whipped-cream)
Andrew’s Deluxe Dinner: One crispy chile relleno, a taco, two cheese enchiladas, lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole, beans and rice. (Free refills on everything but relleno)

There has been some great press on this event!
Anne Herbst did a great piece on 9News!

Food Face

I am not a portrait photographer.
I am an in the moment photographer.
Call me a snapshot artist.
I document unique experiences.
FOOD FACE is a recurring event in my visual vernacular.
Please enjoy FOOD FACE.

Blood Lustre Art Show

Blood Lustre – Portraits using human blood

Where horror movies, zombie culture and stage blood are becoming ubiquitous and very realistic, actual blood seems like the next logical step in this extreme aesthetic.
It was an experiment – Would it even look real? Is it going too far? Could I find any models?
It has been a great experience… and quite the process.
Thanks to all of the models, who donated their own blood, J9 as the phlebotomist and Bloody Panda and to Kitchens’ Ink.

Short film to premiere at Denver Film Fest!

While we are working on the feature-length documentary and crowdfunding, we cut together a short in order to beat some film festival deadlines (Denver, Sundance, SlamDance, SXSW).
We were accepted and will premiere the short at the 39th Denver Film Fest on November 10th and 11th!!
It’s not a short version of the film, it’s more like a precursor to the film – it will make you want to see the feature like crazy!
It will precede a feature-length documentary called Ovarian Psycos – so you get tickets to that, and you will see both!
Here’s how to get tickets:

Please support the Kickstarter! Lots of goofball rewards!!

My Movie Kickstarter Launch Party

I have started making a movie! It’s about my crazy collecting and some of the weird items related to JonBenet Ramsey and what I decide to do with them!
So weird and crazy.
As we raise money to complete the feature film with our Kickstarter, the short premieres at the 39th Denver Film Festival preceding an awesome documentary Ovarian Psycos (sic) on November 10th and 11th.
So you purchase a ticket for that film and see both!

Friday, October 21st – Kickstarter Launch Party! 9 p.m. – Midnight
Location: Jake’s Sports & Spirits 3800 Walnut St, Denver, Colorado 80205

Come learn about the campaign and watch the campaign video, a teaser for the film and lots of clips of times I have been on TV and more!

Everything will repeat a few times – so stop by at some point!
A free drink ticket for the first 50 people!
