Portland Monthly Best of the City 2012

Portland Monthly magazine's annual Best of the City edition features a clever shot of the kid at Hawthorne Vintage. When Kate asked me to do the shoot, I made sure to do some reconnaissance of the shop prior to the date. I was under the impression that the scene would be set somewhere else, but the teal sofa worked out pretty well. The oh-so-clever camera prop? Again, Ms. Madden...

Counting the Blessings

As Diggable Monkey heads into the summer season, I can't help but reflect on the past 16 months since the company began. The activity surrounding the company has been at a slow, but steadily rising crawl. Just recently, we became a key player in the production of online content for a local dance studio. I'm not talking about 4 minutes of internet content here... Simultaneously, we were once again approached by Flora Bowley to create a new and improved painting video illustrating her techniques. All of this on the heels of a MarchFourth tour starting in June, which is roughly 8 months since my last major outing with them. DM's work with Mizu Desierto on the butoh "Local Culture Project" went swimmingly this past weekend at the Headwaters Theater and we'll be gearing up for another season of the Razzle Dazzle bus video blog series. Are things heating up around here? Oh, man. It's gone from simmer to boil... Photo by Stuart Mullenberg
