Fyrefly and Me

I posted some photos from the end of this group a month ago or so; they are from a photo shoot of yours truly with Fyrefly, a porn star who came by the studio with my friend Bruno to model a year ago or so. He had a whole shoot just by himself, but at some point he roped me in and the next thing I knew I was having a much better time than I had thought I would just moments before. I'll post them over the next few days; here are the first photos from that shoot!

A Grapefruit, A Butterfly, And Some Naked Burning Man

So I'm still on my road trip back home, with no photos to share, but I thought I would post some older pictures I found in my computer taken at Burning Man.

The boy with me in the photos above is Grapefruit; a good friend of mine that I met that year. He's staying with me in San Francisco now; I've been painting him a lot lately. I'll post more photos of him soon! We're both wearing outfits I designed and made - costuming is my favorite thing to do when I'm not hard at work painting!

My friend and I were asked to count these canisters as impartial witnesses for the camp across the street. Their were a lot of them. I swear they weren't ours!

In full glory as a yellow butterfly

And a good friend from San Francisco who has been swearing to me that he'll pose for me one day. Last we talked, he was working on his abs so he could be ready for his portrait.

The last of the stock with Felix Forrest

I'm in Palm Springs right now, at an art fair of sorts for my work; its been really great. I met some new customers, and a couple of old ones who came out to meet me. One of my new friends is a photographer from LA; he invited me to be in a photoshoot here in the pool at the resort. I got to model with his very hot and hunky model, as well as with himself; it was super fun. I'll post a link to his website soon, and the photos he took when he sends them to me. I wish I had taken some photos of my own of the process to share with you on the blog, or of the handsome young man I ended up spending the night with; hopefully, he will come up to San Francisco later and I will immortalize him in art and share his charms with you. Tomorrow, a friend and I are going on a road trip back to San Francisco. In the meantime, here are the last of the photos from that shoot with Felix Forrest, for stock.

I shot this stock when I was working on my Japanese calendar last year. But I took so much of it, and it was all so good, that I have been using it ever since on a variety of projects; if I know I want to paint a cute couple in some setting, I will refer to it (along with a great many other photo shoots) for a pose. Here are a couple of paintings I made using the stock above;

This one was from the calendar. It was made from a photo I took during the same photoshoot. You can purchase a print of it at the link below, or see more of my Japanese style paintings there!

And a recent piece I did just a week ago, using the same photo shoot.
