Full of Grace 2

Full of Grace 2

So Zivity is running a contest for sexy "cliches." Anyone who knows me, knows that I can’t pass up an opportunity for some hot school girl pics, and really what could be more cliche than that, right? So I entered. Twice.

This one is with Sarah(MM#13043), who obviously is one of my favorite models ever and a close dear friend. This was a high concept shoot. I didn’t want to just do the sexy school girl thing that I usually do. I wanted to tell a different kind of story. One of pain. Something dark and gothic. In my head, the Madonna "Like a Prayer" video was playing the entire time we shot it.

Anyway, check out the entire set on zivity. Let me know if you need a trial account.

Eight of Staffs

Eight of Staffs

so I actually used Scarlett for the Eight of Staffs card before, but the more I thought about it, the more I decided I didn’t like it, so I decided to redo the card with a shot I liked better.

I also wanted the tattoo of the staff/heaven symbol to be less obvious. If you haven’t been following along, each of my tarot suits has a theme and each number has a less obvious theme. The theme for the eights is including the suit sigil. I felt it was too overpowering on the old card, so I decided to disguise it in a more intricate tattoo on this version.

Anyway, let me know what you think. Do you prefer this one or the older version.

Only one photoshoot behind. Woohoo. I’ll b caught up in no time.

This is Scarlett. She drove up from West Virginia to be part of the Tarot set.

These three pole dancing pics are alternate views of for the Eight of Staffs card which more and more I am not liking as I look at it. The feeling of it just isn’t right. So I’m looking for opinions. Which of these three best fits the mood of the other tarot cards and still convey’s "swiftness" (i’d still have to over saturate it to match the other staff cards and digitally add a tattoo).

More to come.

Day 647 of 365 More.

Wow…

So, I say all the time that I never expected 365 to really take off the way it did. I would really have been happy if there were 20 people in the group on my first day, but now every time I look at the stats and see it’s over 8500 people all over the world, I am astounded.

The group has gotten so big and so amazing that a month ago, my mother decided to organize the members to pay tribute to me and my awesomeness.

Wow.

So I kind of expect my mother and Steph to do stuff like this, because for some crazy reason, they claim to actually love me. I even expect it of Jameel since he’s spent the better part of his adult life, laying in bed at night and dreaming that he might one day be the Maverick. I’m happy they participated, but its no surprise.

The real surprise is the other 130-odd people who have also copycatted one of my photos in the last 24 hours.

I’m sorry I can’t go through and comment on each and every one of you (just flipping through the pool and working on this pic ate up my whole night and kept me from working on the next episode of Cosmic Hellcats which I had planned on working on tonight (and if you aren’t reading my webcomic, shame on you. Go check it out now! End cheap plug…), but let me just say that viewing the whole thing really made my day. So thank you to all who participated.

When I first heard about this, my immediate thought was "hmm, I wonder how many catholic school girl pics there are going to be today?" I kinda guessed that there might be one from like_shipwrecks and I was was so sure that PhotoKat would do one, that I would have bet my life on it. But the entries from er3465, evaxebra and gaymay were nice surprises. And it was great going through the pool and seeing other people’s takes on all my other ideas.

So thank you to everyone who participated and feel free to make it a yearly occurrence. Maybe next year we’ll all get off work. 🙂
