Editorial with Yeva Dashevsky

What can I say about Yeva?  Ever since I first shot with her, I’ve been awed by her creativity.  I would shoot with Yeva any day under any circumstance.  As a model and a stylist, she is my muse.  I will wax poetic about her art until I lose my voice.

The inspiration for this shoot was a David Bowie-esque androgyny.  High fashion meets attic dirt.  Being ugly-pretty.  Masculinity channeled through soft features and shadowed bones.

This is a shoot that Yeva and I pulled together at the last minute.  Styling and wardrobe credit to myself, and Conor for supplying the perfect shirt.

Valentine’s Day Show and News

Hi everyone.  I’ve been so busy on stage, but I will soon post some new videos and commercials I wrote, directed, starred in, etc.  This renaissance bit makes me sound devoid of humility, but I’m not.  I assure you that I make up for it by making a complete ass out of myself most of the time (unless we’re on set and it’s serious time).

Come to my show on Valentine’s Day!  Get tickets by clicking on this link!

Prostitute Tears is also playing a show with GULP! and GayCo at Stage 773 on March 27th.  Get tickets by going to Stage773.com.

Stay tuned for updated media!

I love press!

Two articles were released in the Oak Forest Patch and the Beverly/Mt. Greenwood Patch about the Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival this year and they mention me.  South Siiiiiiiiiiiiiide!

It’s kind of the same article, but I don’t care.  Press!

 

Love,

Update City

Hello, faithful stalkers.  If you haven’t noticed, my video camera has broken.  Until I get a new one, you shall not be regaled with my meaningless banter via video blog.

I have been busy with theatre and writing, which is difficult to blog about without boring the eyes out of your beautiful face.  I do have some links to a few performances, which you can watch for free from the comfort of your jail cell in that cushy federal prison of yours.

I was lucky enough to be cast in a comedic ensemble at Second City in May of 2013, called Prostitute Tears.  Click this link to see our Facebook page.

You can watch Prostitute Tears’ performance at Second City (Chicago) on August 1st, 2013 by clicking here.

This is a link to Prostitute Tears’ performance at Second City on August 8th, 2013.

This is a link to Prostitute Tears’ performance at Second City on August 15th, 2013.

It is so fun to say PROSTITUTE TEARS.

Our ensemble, PROSTITUTE TEARS, is directed by the very talented and mystical, magical, wonderful Brian Posen.  Stay tuned for the date and time of our performance at The Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival, which is the largest sketch comedy festival in the nation.  To say I am honored to be working with these people is an understatement.

In other news, you will see my blonde head on cable during your commercial break if you don’t have a DVR.  I also have a couple of fun shoots coming up, and will be updating my media section soon.

Thank you for your loving support, as always!

xo,

Di
