I was thrilled to lend my hand to a fun live event and draw on non-paper surfaces including a giant chalkboard and products. I customized some amazing @aveneusa products for a special event at Mamon for editors to check out some of Avene Thermale‘s new products. It was fun being surrounded by flowers, beauty products and the smell of baked goods.
Diving into the study of hair through a community-built research library and hair studio during a summer residency at @americancopperbuildings.
Behind the scenes, the hair studio will be producing a photographic journal entitled Hair Studies 20-21, which will explore the organic and transformative nature of hair.
Rubi asked me to create some art to showcase on the walls of the space.
“A face chart describes a piece of paper featuring the black outline of a blank, bony face. A completed face chart has been brushed, painted, and trimmed with powder and pigment to create a makeup artist’s rough draft. They are the wallpaper of choice backstage at Fashion Week, where a chart will disseminate from a key artist to the 10 or 20 assistants working under their guidance. Cosmetic counter employees stock stacks of them, so they can illustrate to former and future prom queens the blush placement that would flatter them most at their high school dances and reunions. I took a very brief and pathetic stab at trying to find out who invented the face chart, and got absolutely nowhere, so you will have to imagine that they have been around for decades.”
I love doing these line drawings for makeup artists to fill in….and Allure Mag. to publish.
I loved getting back into the studio after a forced pandemic hiatus. I art direct for Bodily, an incredible postpartum resource and shop with incredible gear and undergarments designed with the postpartum body in mind. Here are a few of my favorite images from a recent shoot.
Julia Robbs photographed Rachel Nicks. Bodily only shoots on real postpartum women. I love that.
