Jake La Botz for Inked

Jake La Botz for Inked

"Jake La Botz is a creator of dark poetry and haunting song, the kind of music that gets in your bones and rides you for days, a sound and vision only those who've been to the bottom and clawed their way back up can generate. His midnight gifts evoke Hank Williams and Skip James as much as Tom Waits and Dylan. Not everybody will get this music - because not everybody is ready for the truth."  

 - Jerry Stahl (author of Permanent Midnight)

 

WONDERWALL

WONDERWALL

All nighters with Tina Vaden to create one of kind prints, frames and a beautiful celebration of creativity and divinity. Creating from nothing, this experience allowed me to take apart my work, put it back together, as well as take leaps of faith into a mixed media World. It isn't so scary... 

So much more experimenting to do.

The Artist Formally Known as Amy R.

This is the Artist Formally Known as Amy R. We met through a beautiful process, and I can't imagine having gone through this without her. From the first steps into this new way of life I have been practicing, until the end of our beings, I see this woman being by my side. It's a beautiful thing, this thing, and I couldn't imagine having done this work without her.

Sleep to Dream

I got my feet on the ground

& I don't go to sleep to dream 

You got your head in the clouds 

And you're not at all what you seem 

This mind, this body 

And this voice cannot be stifled by your deviantways 

So don't forget what I told you 

Don't come around, I got my own hell to raise 

- Fiona Apple

Large Format Flashback with Greg Gorman

Greg Gorman and I got to work together through my education at School of Visual Arts, and I couldn't be happier that I got to meet such a fun and inspiring guy. He really has a way to make you feel at home. It wasn't a "big artist little artist" type of week - perfect week to look back on as my year at SVA comes to a close
