The Everests – “Rowena” wins Best Production Design

The music video for the song “Rowena” won the award for Best Production Design at the 35th annual Scottsdale Community College Film Festival.  I had a very small role in this project as a special effects makeup artist. I painted the gold on the dancer’s hands and feet, but the real kudos go to the fantastic team of LOCAL talent that made a world class music video. I am really impressed with this and I hope you will take a moment to listen to this song and take in the beautiful imagery. Thank you to Ryan Johnston and Desiree Srinivas for letting me be a contributor to this work.

A music video for an original song by The Everests, produced by Art of War Pictures, LLC. Featuring Kayla Nelson as The Dancer.

Weeping Angel Bodypainting at CopperCon 2013

Had a great time at CopperCon Revolution 2013. I sold several prints and did a bodypainting project with Tia Dworshak as a weeping angel from Dr. Who. Thank you to everyone who was able to come out and take part in the event.  For those of you that couldn’t be there to see it live, Lyle Dillie from Land of the Nerds has added a time-lapse video of the process below.  Enjoy!
