Month in Review: December

I spent most of this month focused on creating content for the Surrealist Erotica series. 

I've added 4 videos to the On-Demand series- a second Man Ray video, and videos inspired by Maya Deren, Elsa Schiaparelli, and Meret Oppenheim. I've also been working re-creating some photos to add to future books or to be available as prints. 

The Films:

I made a few collages this month but none of them that I really like very much. I only posted one or 2 of them. It was a slow month for music too. I did record a new song with Dead Editor, but that's about it. You can check it out here

I've been moving a lot of my stuff onto dtube and dsound, in place of youtube and soundcloud. I also have been blogging on steemit and providing some more information about my visual references for the Surrealist Erotica series and just about my work in general. The mainstream social media sites are trash. 

I'll be continuing my work Surrealist related work into the new year, with some more video and photos and books.
