Day 1249 of 365 4 lyf. 1000 days ago I fiinshed converting the original master bedroom in our house into my new studio. It seems like so long ago now. Now I’ve spent like a gazillion dollars on additional lights and equipment and I need a new studio again. Blah, why I can’t I be…

Sarah & Starr 5

Sarah & Starr 5

Back before I became a comic book author, you know, way back 2 months ago, I used to be a pretty good glamour photographer. At least that’s what they tell me.

While I was working on Hellcats, I’d been kinda neglecting editing shots. Well, that ends tonight. I put together some of these from my shoot with Sarah and Starr a couple weeks ago.

The shoot was Sarah’s idea. Inspired by cheesecake dorm room posters, she wanted to do some artsy sensual lesbianesque playful B&Ws. She also wanted to get Starr into modeling. This is some of what we came up with.

Day 515 of 365 More. I’m feeling a little better today. I’m still overworked. I’m still exhausted. But, I’m feeling a bit better about it. I’m almost caught up on the shoots I’ve done so far for the lights show, and should be finishing the rest of them up tomorrow. Then maybe I’ll finish a…

Three of Swords

Three of Swords

Note: Several people had issues with the original version of this card as it wasn’t obvious enough that she was looking in a mirror. I understood the issue but was resistant because i really don’t want the background elements of any card to overpower the main image. Of course in this one, the mirror is part of the main image. But still I didn’t want to distract from the image. So I ended up compromising by trying to add a very simple stylized mirror frame to the image. I look forward to feedback.

In the Tarot, there are opposing suits. Swords Staffs and Cups Coins. I wanted to illustrate that within my set, and I thought the three’s would be a good place to do that. Every three will be based upon the concept of reflections, with the model being garbed and styled in the opposing suit, while they are reflected in a mirror (or some other reflective surface) with their true nature.

I wasn’t sure about this idea at first, but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

This one stars Laurie. More shots of her coming later.

EDIT: Now that I’m thinking about it, I’m wondering if I should drop the left bar altogether and just let people wonder if it’s a mirror or two different girls. Opinions?
