I would like to present my latest project from Everything Waffles with the assistance from Andrew Lorish and Alisha Harms.
As Everything Waffles continues to grow I have neglected to update my main site of other work I have created. Recently my work has been related to the playful nature of these portraits.
Here is just a taste from what I have been up to and what might be coming from my work with Everything Waffles.
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!
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.

Finally my self-published book of portraits with Waffles has been published and printed. This book is comprised of 15 portraits with Waffles over the past year reflected internet images circulating the web. You can check out the preview below and if you are interested in a copy please let me know.
Copy this link until infinity and help me publish project across the very source from where this project came from.
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.
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.
Here is another video discussing the special announcement coming on 12/1/2011. more things have developed and there will be more surprises on the way on that date.
Today I am proud to announcement, a countdown to an announcement. After finishing the latest Waffles portrait and putting it online, I have a new project that will be announced on December 1st of this year. It does seem strange to make an announcement to make an announcement later but since this is a much larger undertaking.
As I approach the work on this project, you can expect sneak peeks found on here and subtle hints to what will be to come. This project is going to require much of my time and effort so the pay off should be worth the wait.
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?
Just two blocks from my apartment is the sight of a migration stop for thousands of Vaux Swifts every year.
Enjoy the awesome power of nature.
