Pamelina

One of the most fascinating people I have ever met is Pamelina. You've probably seen her artwork here and there and never knew it. She's had an amazing career as an artist and is still going strong. Even more, she's lived a fascinating life.

I first met Pamelina a few years back at World Horror Con. Both of us had art in the artshow and we started talking. And we talked. And talked. And talked. Most people who know me, know I love to hear myself talk. I'm not sure but I think she did most of the talking, which suited me just fine. I really enjoyed hearing what she had to say.

If you get a chance, check out her website. Tell her Jeanette sent you.

Phil



I do not often get the chance to photograph male subjects. When the chance came up to shoot my friend Phil, I jumped at it. Not only is he gorgeous but he has that rock and roll mystique that girls just love (he's happily married, sorry ladies).

Torn



I started putting this together and realized it looked kind of familiar. I did some digging and realized she reminded me of the cover of one of Natalie Imbruglia's albums, which was unintentional. I added in the background after that and decided to call the image "Torn" in honor of it.

Digital Art Competition

Digital Art Competition

I took a leap and entered this this morning. The worst thing that will come out of it is I won't make the show. I have no idea what these people think about my kind of art but, nothing ventured, nothing gained. Right?

Mystik Velvet - Not Work Safe



MystikVelvet again, taken almost two years ago for a project I was working on called Smut And Hotel Rooms. The book has been finished for a few months but needs some serious editing for the photographs. The printer I chose does some very funky things to color photos.

National Novel Writing Month

I joined the insanity that is NANOWRIMO. The idea is to write a 50,0000 word novel in 30 days. A few people have actually had their NANO novels published. Awesome for them, though I doubt mine will end up that way. Even if my novel ends up being trash, it will be awesome to be able to say "I did it! I wrote 50,000 words in 30 days!"

I probably won't post daily updates but I will be posting my progress. Right now, I'm at 1,703 words. Not too shabby.

I did this one, sort of to prove I could do 'sexy' without flashing nipples. I think I accomplished that.

Fayth is a model from Florida that I work with as often as I can. I don't know why it is but I am very often getting her wet. Get your mind out of the gutter. I tend to toss her in the shower or bath tub.

This one is Birgitte, a persistent character in my personal fiction. This time she has jumped settings (her original is more fantasy/medieval oriented) into the modern world where she hunts vampires.

Red Hot Pin-Up



This is my friend, a burlesque performer who goes by the name MystikVelvet. The pictures were taken at this totally awesome hotel in DC - Hotel Rouge. It made for a lush backdrop, perfect for retro-inspired pin-up photography. I have the fortune of shooting there again this coming weekend with my photographic muse, Julie Simone.

This is my friend Amanda. She and her friend Emily dressed up as dolls and I took some pictures. I really love how this one turned out. The blue of her eyes really stands out. I had some prints made of these shots and they are gorgeous.

This one was done in 2004. Unfortunately, the original file was corruped in a hard drive crash but, it still remains one of my favorites.

Where have I been?

I've been really quiet on the art scene lately. I've missed World Horror Con for the past three years, including this year. I've not juried in for Dragon Con in at least that long as well. Nor have I done any of the other local conventions with art shows.

I could make a million excuses. My printer broke. I had a hard drive crash (this was the most devastating because my art is all digital and some of my most important pieces were not backed up yet - totally my fault). Health issues. Time issues. Family issues. The list goes on and on an on. It all boils down to the same bullshit - excuses.

I miss it. I miss my artist friends. I miss the excitement of walking through rows of panels and seeing my work hanging there, being admired by people. I even miss the debating (is 3d digital art really art, anybody?) and defending my work as legitimate art. So much about all of it I miss.

So I'm going back. My printer is, I believe, repairable. If it's not, then I'll invest in a new one (unless someone can recommend a really awesome, not horribly expensive printing service that won't freak out over nudity?). I am making new art, feeling inspired again. I think I'll start with World Horror Con 2008. Who's going to go with me?

Heavy is the head...
