|VOL 12 ISSUE 3||October 2016|
My son Sage got married in September and I am so happy to welcome Savannah Marie to the Greenawalt family. It was a beautiful ceremony at the Wright House in Mesa and they had a wonderful turn-out of friends and family. I wrote a song for them called "Take Me As I Am" and introduced the song during the reception. I'll post that someday soon as well as more photos from their big day. For now, here is one of my favorite shots. Congratulations you two and may there be many more good times than hard times!
I created two original comic book characters for an event called The Art of Fantasy, Comics, and Sci-Fi held at the Alwun House in September. The two fantastic models I had the opportunity to work with were Nichol Gum and Matthew Frenzi. Nichol's character was named Ravenous and was developed to be a winged hero (or villian...the back story has yet to be created) and Matthew's character was named The Alchemist. The wings were custom made from scratch by a true artisan named Alexis Noriega who brands her wings under the moniker The Crooked Feather. She worked for many hours to make these black wings to accompany the theme of the raven character. Hopefully these two original character designs will become part of a comic book someday. Click on the images below to see the concept art and the final images of each character. Plus, I have also posted a video of Nichol being painted on my Youtube channel at https://youtu.be/xPLbxU6z9Po.
I have started the layout for my first bodypainting book. I have 16 years of projects to pull from so I am soliciting opinions for which pictures should be included (and possibly which ones should be omitted). I have a very special guest who has agreed to write the forward for the book and I hope to be announcing that soon. I will be launching a Kickstarter program soon and I hope to have quite a few tiers of rewards to make it interesting. More details to be unveiled next month.
