dressed up like a lady: Immortalized!

May 6, 2009

Immortalized!

Not too long ago, I was lucky enough to be the subject of this awesome portrait by artist Andy K (also known as Andrew Kskarafia). Should you follow that link and peruse his other works (which I highly recommend) you'll notice how Andy combines a Warhol-style post-modern feeling with a really cool, sort of impressionistic art style -- it reminds me a lot of Kazuto Nakazawa. He also brings a lot of subtle touches to the content of his art: little details that color the way the subjects are perceived. Mark my words, he's destined for fame.


Oh, and perhaps you recall when I was squeeing about some pictures from my kickass photoshoot with Christian O'Grady being featured on the awesome vintage shop Chi Chi and the Greek? Well not only can you see a different shot on there now, you can see yet another one on the banner for the Chi Chi and the Greek Blog! I feel downright famous.


And lastly, seeing as how winter is finally and irrefutably over here where I live, I might as well publish the last installment of the Brrrrr! Blog for the year. It's warm enough now that I can barely remember how ridiculously frigid it was when this picture was taken. Anyway, this was the coat I wore most often throughout winter -- hopefully I won't be seeing it for a few nice, long months.
