Behind the Scenes with Rejina, a wonderful model from Seattle. I miss her already. At least you get to see my face in one of these, finally! I’m gluing a cicada to her head. This is also a good look at some of the many locations in the building where my studio is located. I will be making my studio available for hourly rental soon, just have to set up the page on my website.

I love when my husband does that ropey paper sculpture style.

Hear Ye, Hear Ye, I am closing my Etsy shop on Ocotber 1st and for the rest of the month you can order any print in the shop for 30% off. Just use the code “FAREWELL” upon checkout. Sale ends Sept.30th.
Feel free to share the code with whomever you please, and reblog if you are feeling generous.
Thanks!
(Nothing dramatic is happening, I just have so few sales through Etsy these days it’s easier for me to sell prints directly)

Throwback Thursday, hello college photo class! Found these while cleaning out boxes in the art room. Shot in 1988?, along the water in Fremont, WA with my then boyfriend. So moooooooody…

visioluxus:

Okay interwebbies! I need a little help.
The image above featuring the beautiful ammalynn was sold by one of my agencies for a book cover. I don’t know what book, but I do know that it’s probably a first edition hard cover, and a fairly famous author. It was sold to a USA publisher, which doesn’t necessarily mean it will be released in the USA. The release date could be anywhere between now and Christmas. I know that’s not a lot to go on, but the first person who finds out which book it is gets a FREE PRINT OF THEIR CHOICE!
If it is in a horror/mystery genre then think Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Blake Crouch… although it could be any genre. Why don’t I know which book you ask? Because this particular agency doesn’t care to track that info. The sales department and the accounting department don’t communicate.
Good luck!

We have a winner! A wonderful fan found the book cover, like a needle in a haystack. I would have never even noticed this, so high praise for finding it.
This is also a perfect example of why creative stock photography is a thankless job.

Just the bottom left edge of the fabric. Sorry ammalynn, no cover for you yet. :(

I’ll be absent for the next week-ish, so I’ll leave you with that.

Part of the spread in the current issue of Rebelicious Magazine, featuring wardrobe by kambriel, modeling by opheliadarkly and headdress by phillipvaldez..

…and finally, a tribute to our days of 90’s goth clubbing. Wardrobe and boots courtesy of kambriel, nostalgia courtesy of the both of us, and of course vburnham patiently channeling our nostalgia in a Peter Murphy-esque way.

This counts as a throwback Thursday, right? Originally shot for Dark Beauty Magazine issue 34.
