A few months back I was approached by Brendan Freeman of the design collective We Are Useful of London for an interview for their new publication, USED. I'm not sure where the magazine is available, but you can check it out at It's a beautiful magazine, all black and white on matte paper, which features the work of artists, designers, and photographers with interviews and articles. Definitely worth a peek. Here is my interview from the magazine:

This is Fanfarlo:

I've alluded to this project a little bit on the blog already, but I've been working on several pieces for their forthcoming album and tour over the last month or so. This is my first real collaboration, my first real design job, and the first time someone has ever paid me for my work, so it's been really exciting and honoring for me. Working with them has been great- we connected right away and have a lot in common in our philosophies and aesthetics so the ideas have just been coming really naturally. 
I wish I could give  more details but for now all I can say is I've heard some of the new songs and the album is going to be brilliant! 
Stay tuned!

There are parts that lurk behind / repression

bedtime stories

continuing my regimen for strange dreams (100mg melatonin, 300mg b6, surreal entertainment), I came across an interesting story

from Jorge Luis Borges' "Covered Mirrors"
"Islam tells us that on the unappealable Day of Judgement, all who have perpetrated images of living things will reawaken with their works, and will be ordered to blow life into them, and they will fail, and they and their works will be cast into the fires of punishment. As a child, I knew that horror of the spectral duplication or multiplication of reality, but mine would come as I stood before large mirrors. As soon as it began to grow dark outside, the constant, infallible functioning of mirrors, the way they followed my every movement, their cosmic pantomime, would seem eerie to me. One of my insistent please to God and my guardian angel was that I not dream of mirrors; I recall clearly that I would keep an eye on them uneasily; I feared sometimes that they would begin to veer off from reality; other times, that I would see  my face in them disfigured by strange misfortunes."
