In a 3-page spread, Sugar Heart interviews me about my work in travel TV and underground coolhunting.
The magazine’s dedicated to alternative pinup and burlesque models, tattoos, pulp fiction, art, and vintage style. Pick up a copy for tons of inspiration.
The bird skull is a necklace gifted by Fashionology.
The more I wear it, the more I love latex.
Now, for some behind the scenes shots. We set up a studio in Avant Garde Hair salon in Vancouver.
Thanks to Ross Wilson for the hair styling assistance.
And to Tracy for her endless energy.
