|VOL 13 ISSUE 1||January 2017|
The Coats of Paint book is complete and sent off to the printer. I will debuting the book and kicking off the Kickstarter campaign at an event on January 21st at the Unexpected Gallery in Phoenix, Arizona. I selected 50 images from my 16-year bodypainting career. The book will be a 9"X12" soft cover that is an homage to the art books that inspired me by Boris Vallejo and Frank Frazetta. I am also producing a smaller comic book sized edition for a separate tier of the Kickstarter campaign. It has all of the same images but they are condensed into 48 pages.
Congratulations to the following models who are featured in the book: Megan Brock (cover), Alison Cember (2 image appearances), Cynthia Van Eygen, Sharen Seitz, Evy Vermeulen, Amiii Richey, Tanya Mendes, Nyx Ortega, Molly Ehmann, Lindsey Electra, Chatel Birkett, Sarah Pirie, Julianna Muse, Cheyenne Silver, Stephanie Kyle, Connie Clapper, Jen Amber (3 image appearances), Lessa Michelle, Kelsey Weathers, Sheila Crosby, Erin St. Blaine (2 image appearances), April Mae Jorgensen, Gummi, Nikki Darling, Encina Severa (2 image appearances), Autumn Allbritton, Funz, Trisha Youkhana, Meria Birchak, Autumn Ivy, Mary Carver, Illyra Lynn Vote, Paris Harshman (3 image appearances), Matthew Lenzi, Courtney Black, Alexandria Pierce, Lynette Brooks, Lia Fowler, Chelle Bell, Kate Perrin, Ally Reynolds, Kyndra Jackson, Kristel Ama, Miss Krystle, Sonja Allen, Stacey Tappenden, Sarah Bowers, Kay Kochman, and Sadie Yurista.
This is also a book of glamourous photography. I was the photographer on a large majority of the projects, but I want to thank the following photographers who also contributed some great shots: Don Crossland (3 image credits), Daveed Benito, Brad Garner, Ed Clapper, Steve Gladyz, Images by O’D, Ratchford, Christos Sewell.
If we all get 15 minutes of fame, I should still have 14 minutes and 59 seconds left after my 1 second cameo in this feature film! Go to Hulu and watch All Out Dysfunktion! It's a little bit raunchy so send the kids to bed first. My acting credit is for playing a body painter at a rave scene and I show up at the 1hr4min25sec mark...don't blink. I did also get credit for doing the body painting on the DJ Candy Red and the two go-go dancers. The best time to check out the dynamic body art is at 59min30sec when the black lights turn on. For some people this might be a insignificant role, but for me, I am on cloud nine for being in a movie, filmed and produced in Hollywood, and available to stream on everyone's TVs. Thank you Christina Jo'Leigh and David Bianchi for inviting me to be a part of this.

On a sad note, I'd like to send my condolances to friends and family of CJ Guerin who was taken from us way too young. Below is a picture of CJ modeling with the Mech painting at the Art Fashion Show in July. I had only known her for a very short time, but I was very sad to hear of her passing.
