My schedule can in no way accommodate art directing a magazine right now, let alone feel comfortable putting up a few grand to get it started. (The grant is on a reimbursement basis, meaning I pay for everything myself, then wait a long time for the grant, which will be taxed income, but oh well.)
♥ Thank goodness for talented friends! - outsourcing the street photography and studio shoots to some super awesome colleagues. I'll be doing the art direction, design work and editing the publication, as well as doing the illustration spreads. So Amy + friends... expect a call from me... ; )
We can consider this a teaser trailer, since it won't be out until early summer. After all - I'm knee deep in Pirates! But I thought I'd post some behind-the-scenes shots of our recent shoot. Thanks to the Worcester Art Museum + Jeff Baker Studios.
The model is my good friend Jess, I sketched her a little while back at her dinner party! Isn't she beautiful!
We listened to some a recent mix I made for Misha
Passion Pit included - since lately I'm obsessed ...
I'll have the professionally-shot photos coming soon - those are much lovelier than my little point-and-shoot!
In a few hours I'll get to the set for round two. We're shooting some free-trade items from Egypt and India! More on that soon ...
