who will be prom queen?

it's that time of year when all the teen magazines are honed in on prom season. my favorite hysterical prom phenomena movie is darren's stein's Jawbreaker. it's a bit wacky, but the colors are scrumptious and the language spits teenage morbidity and gossip. i'm working on a series using stein's cult classic as my inspiration (hence my painting of little J below, killing her idols). there's more to come, but in the meantime, here are some of my favorite stills from the movie with some of the best quotes...

he's a little romantic

andrew moore photographs beautiful ruins.
in his alluring constructed passages, he whisks us away into the corridors of abandoned mansions.
in others, he takes us to discarded lands and waterfronts. everything is washed up, sun-beaten, and weathered, but beautifully so.
some of these places are like ghosts, but they've taken on new lives with markings from wayfarers, passerbys, and squatters or green mosses, vines, and dandelions.
