The historic Herberger Theater in downtown Phoenix hosts a quarterly event called Second Act. It is an upscale schmoozfest with live music, catered hourderves, a no-host bar, a hired masseuse, and plenty of artistic expression. In June, I was invited to be a part of the event as the featured artist guest of honor. For the event I did a live bodypainting demonstration with a former Playboy model and I also displayed some of the painted lifecasts that I have completed. For additional pictures from the event and more of the story, go to http://www.futureclassx.com/bodypaint/sharinlouis/secondact06/secondact06.htm .
It's is always neat to hear from models that I have worked with in the past and it is especially heart warming when they tell me that they are interested in having their pregnant belly painted. I had worked with Rebecca Swan on two projects. The first was a club event for Bombay Sapphire and the second was a Sci-Fi convention with a Lord of the Rings theme. Rebecca contacted me and told me that she and two of her best friends were all pregnant with really close due dates and that they would all love to do a belly painting project. We brainstormed a few ideas and the one that stuck was to paint some famous cartoon fish. Namely Nemo from Finding Nemo, Lola from Shark Tale, and Karlos K. Krinklebine, the frustrated fish from Cat in the Hat. We had a lovely time and went to the little lake at Papago Park for the photoshoot. To see a couple more shots from this project, visit my bellypainting page at http://www.futureclassx.com/bodypaint/bellypainting.htm .
This is a link to an article I wrote for the new magazine Ignite. The article is about artist John Tzelepis whose unique style incorporates designs of structural art pieces made from various metals. His work involves a fair amount of mathmatical precision and touts the laws of physics. To read the article, click http://www.futureclassx.com/words/2006/JohnTzelepis/JohnTzelepis.htm .
