After Comicon, my friend Evan Hayden came to LA to shoot with a couple local models.
When both of his shoots fell through, he had the awesome idea to set up a shoot for us to collaborate on.
We convinced my lovely roomate Brenna to pose for us, and promptly started setting up lights.
The concept for the shoot involves the chance meeting of a prostitute and a midwestern housewife in a hotel.
This obviously required me to break out my black wig.
Sure am glad I took that stage makeup course in college!

French braid! Stat!
I’ll be posting the results of the shoot, followed by the subsequent illustrations that come out of it. You guys will see the in-progress work I do on my half, and if we’re lucky, perhaps Evan will post his as well.
The final result will be available for purchase as a limited edition triptych.
Evan and I have both agreed to not show each other what we’re doing on our halves of the project until we are both finished. I’m amped to be sharing the process with all of you, because this will be the first time I’ve shown every aspect of my work, including the photoshoot.
I hope you all are as excited as I am!
