The Artist as Hero

At last my MFA thesis work has been completed. Inspired by my work with Everything Waffles and the projects that have been taking place with Danger Punch, The Artist as Hero shows you the pathetic nature of my imagination.

Enjoy the gallery of images that a the start of a new project and look at for many new works to come.

Where is Justin?

You might be wondering what I have been up to since there hasn’t been much activity since February. You can find all of the latest work I have been doing over at everythingwaffles.com. This site continues my work with self-portraiture and you can enjoy every image that is recreated to become more awkward.
Here is just a taste,

 

Update on Kickstarter Project

About 2 weeks ago I started a project on Kickstarter to help fund my Everything Waffles project. Support has been coming in from both on and off the website. I am still looking for more support through funding or just re-tweeting or “Liking” the project. This will help me create my self-published book in April and create more photos. Please follow the link below and help support the project!

Justin and Waffles Kickstarter Project

Having started the book and creating videos online for the Everythingwaffles.com website, I have started a Kickstarter to help the project. I am seeking to raise $1,500 to complete all aspects of the project. More information about the project can be found at my Kickstarter page.

The funding for the project runs until March 6 however the project itself will take further months to complete. As the books are printed and sold, part of the funding will go to the original animal rescue center where I got waffles and also the Humane Society.

As a reminder, Everythingwaffles.com is a website now. It is experiencing some issues right now but it is a great place to see some of the videos that have been made.

 

Justin and Waffles Book

After working on the self-portraits with Waffles over the past year and half, I finally decided to bring all of the images to book. This book is more than just what I have shown and holds many images that have not been seen. With all of the costumes and source images, I believe this represents a survey of portraiture through the past few decades. The main purpose of including Waffles in this body of work is to insert a trending topic(cats) into portraits that followed trends during the time they were taken.

From the original photo above, my goal in this series of images is to portray myself in a similar setting as the original. This body of work stands as a survey of styles and photographic trends that circulate through the internet and a re-contextualized from their location online.

Along with this book, I have started a website to continue this series of images with not only photos, but videos as well. I approach these in a similar way to find trends of videos found on YouTube and elsewhere and match that style while using my cat Waffles to alter that meaning.

Currently this book edition has a limited quantity so please contact me if you may be interested.

Not a Performance

I have been meaning to put up some videos of the boring parts of setting up for a portrait with Waffles. Now that my space is a little bigger I can just set the camera and record away.

Honestly I edited out everything but the boring part of the video just for your entertainment. Honestly, would you expect anything different?

What more could you ask for than a video of a man ironing fabric? Perhaps a new photo with Waffles?

Perhaps.

Everything Waffles

In celebration of the “Everything Waffles” page being released, here is an old video of her hanging out on my shoulders.
