I know it has been quiet around this site. 

I've been working a lot on making full size prints of some of my new work. It is the best way to see what needs work still. It is a very intense process. It feels so final printing an image on good paper. It becomes less imagination and creativity and more supply inventory and costs now. Not always fun to figure out. Though, I do admit, it is cool seeing some of these images come together, and be printed pretty big! Everything at the Hang It show in May, and the Bloomington show in September will be for sale, so get ready! There will also be unframed prints for sale wherever I can swing it, for sale.

I've also been trying to add prints to my Etsy shop. If you have any suggestions or requests of things you would like to see there, please let me know!

Enough with the sales pitch! 


Dear Printer,

Thank you for continuing to work as I make prints for my show, and not barfing black ink on all of them.


Dear Internet,

I would really appreciate it if you stopped tempting me with new cameras for just a little bit.


Dear Friends who have kept me from losing my mind while I have been making prints for shows and framing,

Thank you!!


Dear Friends and Family who have become a fan of Jes Lee on Facebook,

THANK YOU! You make me feel loved :)


Dear Cameras,

Thank you for waiting for me. I haven't been taking many pictures lately, but I will again soon.


I do have a few more photos to post sometime soon. I haven't scanned in the polaroids I have taken with the new PX100 film. But that will come in time. 



Until next time,




I finally updated my announcements on my homepage with all of the shows and events I am participating in coming up. 

I finally got my Etsy shop up and running again! There are only a few items listed in there for sale now, but many more are coming. Also, you might notice, above there is a new 'shop' header. Check it out! If you see an item listed there you like, click on it and it will take you right to the item in my Etsy shop where you can find all of the information for that print!


I have many new polaroids to scan and post, more printing to do, and many other things coming soon…

Stay tuned!!



Dear you

Dear world,

Thank you for today!

Also, I would like more sushi.


More framing was done. There was time to visit with friends, and there was beer, and talk of future fun things. 

Little things that keep me breathing and enjoying even when things get overwhelming. 

There are a lot of little moments planned like this through the month. It will be a good April!


Dear friends,

Thank you for being there!


Until next time,
