New Blog is Back

but I'm not falling for that again. :-|

I'll be keeping this one active with my Tweets just in case...

New Blog

Sunday, January 04, 2009


Remember when I announced that I had a new Blog? Yeah, well, so do I. And in the process of following WordPress's instructions for upgrading the software, it was destroyed. Annoying. However good ole Blogger is here when I need it. :)

I'll soon be posting lots of new goodies, but in the meantime I've become a massive Twitter fan, so check me out there (and note my Twitter feed here on the Blog).

Wha Happened????

What happened is I've UPGRADED!

I've got a fabulous new website situation going, and included in that is a Blog, so this one will stay up (just so I can keep the name) but it won't be active. Catch the latest fun at MakeupwerksBlog Deux

Fresno Represent!

So I got to go up to Fresno to work with a major retailer. Who knew such things existed in Fresno? I certainly did not, but contrary to my Big City snobbery, Fresno was a cool little city.... all the needed amenities (Trader Joes, Shoe Pavilion because I forgot to bring non flip-flop shoes with me, PF Chang's for dinner) were all within a few blocks of my hotel room and the job was a mere 10 minute commute. 10 minutes?!? Hmmm... maybe living in Fresno wouldn't be so bad after all.... But no... on second thought I didn't find a Peet's Coffee there...

Fashion Passion

As an artist in the Los Angeles and San Fancisco markets primarily, most of my work is of the commercial/advertising/beauty variety along with some celebrity. Fashion is harder to come by here on the Left Coast, but I'm working on it :) . I am very happy to have recently begun collaborating with a fab photographer Christina Von Messling on a series of designer profiles for the fashion blog Racked LA. The new column is called "Seam and Heard" and features a new local designer each week. Very cool stuff! So far the shots have been atmospheric, evocative and as far away from my standard "bright and pretty" commercial work as can be!

Agency Promo

The first of two promos I've worked on for my agency is up and running. This one is a video promo for Ford West which you can check out here Ford Models West Promo . I didn't do any of the stuff by the beach (I think my fellow Fordartist agency mates Jennifer and Renee did those :) ). I did the Rooftop shots (ballet dancer, models in white standing together), the guy and girl in the garden, the mom/dad/little girl scene... all that stuff. I assisted by fabulous makeup artist Danielle Pierson and hair artist extraordinare Laura Judson.
