I took these two photos of myself when I was playing Detroit in @sorry2botheryou. She made me feel like a walking hat trick . The movie is a big idea and I believe a rare one. If you go see it, thank you. Rainbow kisses, because it means a lot to support the wee Mavericks. @bootsriley

My character in Sorry To Bother You is named Detroit. And this is a latte of her face. Also, @annapurnapics bought the film and that makes me happier than this beverage initially did. Which is really v happy. || latte art: @baristabrian
