This summer, I have taken a little time off to write an ebook. About a week ago, I published a short how-to guide on style and fashion. This may seem like something entirely different from what I have been writing here. But in some ways, it is not completely detached from art and visual analysis.
Before I started working in the art-world, I went to an art school (The School of Museum of Fine Arts in Boston) and studied to be a painter and video artist. In this little book, I uncover the visual method artists use to measure the human body and proportion. In turn, I translate this technique for readers into a practical tool for how to present a stylishly pristine image that reflect intelligence and personality.
Please take a pre-view peek and get a copy here, it is a fun read and very funny. The book suggests the reader to take one's image seriously, but refrain from letting it be counter-productive to one's real life.

The book includes interviews with four artists (Issac Julien, Becky Brown, Caecilia Tripp and Caris Reid), in addition, it also includes a review article written in a first-person voice and narrative-style of paintings by Jen Mazza. This piece is based on an intimate conversation about her artistic that took place in her studio.
I thank all the artists, whose enthusiasm and collaboration made it possible for me to realize this project.
