overly accesible dot com. and the first ever cozyhunter giveaway!

i needed to write a bio statement today for a site that i’m going to be joining as a contributing writer/photographer and after many attempts, drafts, and efforts to be witty in bite-sized, tasty morsels. i realized two things:

1. i really don’t like writing bios.
2. this sums me up:

i tweet. i tumblr. i flickr. i VYou. i pinterest. i blog. i work for SoulPancake.

actually, i just realized a third thing:

3. my bio sounds like i spend too much time in cyberspace. uh oh.


in other news, i’ve decided to do something never-done-before on my blog: launch a giveaway!

in recent weeks, i’ve been approached by a few musicians, authors and artists who have very sweetly asked if they could use my blog as a platform to promote their work and/or host giveaways. i was hesitant at first, but the more i thought about it, the more i realized that i really enjoy using my blog as a space to promote creative ventures, and if doing this prompts me to share even more awesomely creative and talented people (and their products) with the world, then that’s a win/win.

i plan on starting with sporadic giveaways and perhaps building up to a consistent giveaway once-a-week. so, to kick off the party, i’m going to give away something that all of you regular visitors to my blog have heard a lot about, and something that i had a little hand in creating – the SoulPancake book.

here are some spreads from the insides:

AND i’m going to make it easy peasy to win a copy. simply leave a comment on this post telling me about an artist you think we should consider featuring in SoulPancke’s next book. on wednesday at 12pm PST, i’ll select a commenter at random and he/she will be mailed a copy of the SoulPancake book.

on your marks, get set, go. :)

ps. if you’d like me to consider hosting a giveaway for one of your creations please email me at:

  2. Clorisa Says:

    jenny holzer :D

  3. Philip Ellis Says:

    Hey, this giveaway looks great!

    I think the style of The Mighty Boosh would really suit the next SoulPancake book – they’re a comedy duo who produce the most fantastic and surreal artwork.

  4. cara ranieri Says:

    michael DaVid Elvestrom is definitely worthy!

  5. mona Says:

    james mollison and his amazing documentary on “where children sleep” (

  6. Gabe Says:

    There’s so many to name.
    But I’d definitely would love to see:
    Ben Gibbard, of Death Cab For Cutie
    Dallas Green, of City and Colour
    Tegan and Sara
    Sam Beam, of Iron & Wine
    and Fleet Foxes.

  7. Jeff Says:

    The awesome Chris Piascik gets my vote.

  8. Kimberlee Says:

    So great!! I don’t even know what to add to the next book; I’m already mind-blown!

  9. Leslie Parker Says:

    Given the premise behind SoulPancake, I think it would be very interesting to either get with high school art programs or art colleges, and present a question/title, and let them create something based upon that. So, not, an artist, per se, but a community of artists.

  29. Sonia Says:

    Hi hi!

    When imfreelykeely was doing her 365 I was completely, utterly and irrevocably obsessed with it. She doesn’t post pictures very often anymore (sadface) but watching her progression & explorations was AWESOME. Bokeh, whaaaat?! Amazingly creative / brave self-portraits. In any case, she is my recommendation. Check her here :

  30. Santa Says:

    This is a wonderful idea :)
    I like the works of Fréya Eté , Franchesca Jarbusova, her work can be seen in one of the most beautiful animated films I know “Hedgehog in the fog” (In Latvian “Ezītis miglā”)

  31. Kayla Says:
