New OUT Portraits

Two new portraits for the March issue of OUT magazine. I'm working in a different technique then I used to, with sumi ink as well. I hope you like them!

Nina Ricci and Versace

So I'm working on a new piece with looks from Nina Ricci's fall '09 women's collection and Versace's fall '10 menswear collection. I'm also working in a narrative context, (a gang of nasty space-fashion kids are picking a fight with you, watch yo' back). I have a few prelims that I'm working on, trying to see what kind of feel I can get. They in no way represent the level of finish the finals will have, as the finals will neither feel cartoons or comic books. But I say GO FOR IT when your doing prelims, amp up the tude! Let me know which is your favorite?

P.S. The last piece has some concept art I googled as a background layer. That was just to get an idea of what a space city would look like in the image -- trust me, it wont be in the final and neither will it even have a resemblance to it.

Eisley Cover Silver Spring

I don't do this often on this blog, as I usually keep it to my work. But occasionally I find something that I really want to share, and this is one of those occasions. Eisley is a band that I've appreciated for some time, and I usually listen to their music while I work. They recently revealed that they had split from Warner Bros. Records and had become an entirely independent act. In the same post on their blog, Trolleywood, they released a video of a one-take performance of the Stevie Nicks penned, Fleetwood Mac original "Silver Spring". I can't get over this performance -- it's poignant and beautiful, and I feel excited enough to spread it around. I hope you enjoy it!

You can find the video for download here.
