Long Beach Zine Fest 2019!

Thank you to everyone who came out to the Long Beach Zine Fest today! If you don’t know what a zine is or haven’t been to a zine fest… what are you waiting for?!?! I sold out of Dorothy Dandridge today! It makes me happy to know that more people are going to learn about this legend! Also, sold a bunch of copies of Lupe Velez! Tell the stories that haven’t been told or tell the same story differently.

Girl Power! Cha, cha, cha...

Bringing some girl power with me to tomorrow's Print Fair and Festival at the Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) in Long Beach. We'll be premiering two new issues "Dorothy Dandridge Lives Here" and an English AND Spanish version of "Dead In Hollywood: Lupe Velez" - her death is the stuff of urban legends thanks to Kenneth Anger's tell-all tome "Hollywood Babylon." This art fair will also be the first time where you'll be able to pick up a copy of "Dead in Hollywood: Natalie Wood" - I spent last summer visiting Catalina Island photographing her last days. There are a lot of new photos in that one! (MOLAA - 628 Alamitos Ave, Long Beach, CA 90802). Hope to see everyone tomorrow! Now it's time for bed... zzzzzz

Fold. Staple. Repeat.

Cha, cha, cha... join us tomorrow in Long Beach, CA from 11AM - 5PM for the π™Ώπš›πš’πš—πš π™΅πšŠπš’πš› & π™΅πšŽπšœπšπš’πšŸπšŠπš• 𝚊𝚝 πšπš‘πšŽ π™ΌπšžπšœπšŽπšžπš– 𝚘𝚏 π™»πšŠπšπš’πš— π™°πš–πšŽπš›πš’πšŒπšŠπš— π™°πš›πš.

The Mexican Spitfire: Lupe Velez (Coming Soon!)

MarΓ­a Guadalupe Villalobos VΓ©lez, known as Lupe VΓ©lez, is a Mexican-born silent screen star. VΓ©lez begins her career as a performer in Mexican vaudeville in the early 1920s. She is one of the first successful Latin American actresses in Hollywood. By the end of the decade, in the last years of American silent films, she is the lead in a number of films including "The Gaucho" (1927) and "Wolf Song" (1929). In the 40s, VΓ©lez's popularity peaks after appearing in the Mexican Spitfire films, a series created to capitalize on VΓ©lez's well-documented fiery personality. Nicknamed The Mexican Spitfire by the media, VΓ©lez's personal life is as colorful as her onscreen persona. In the early morning hours of December 14, 1944, VΓ©lez retires to her bedroom, where she consumes 70 - yes, 70! - Seconal pills and a glass of brandy. Her death becomes the stuff of urban legends. Coming soon!
