Well Hello Friends!
Wow. I have so much to say. I'm really sorry for being such a recluse so far this year. I really miss posting and talking with you all. Below I explain everything that has and is going on, but first things first... Today's painting. :)
Ever since i did the Models.com Spring 2011 Top Newcomers Series, i've had the idea of starting a portrait series of new up and coming Models. David and i have even talked about doing an interview to accompany the portrait as part of series. Well, i'm happy to say that the Anna L. is the first portrait in the "Newcomer Portrait Series". Anna is a Danish model with IMG. She first caught my eye when, a few months ago, I was on Models.com's and they had featured Anna as a new face. When i was looking through the images on the post, the set of polaroids of her was what first caught my eye. There were about six or seven of them, and she just had such pure and naturally beautiful look, that i knew instantly that i wanted to paint her. Plus she has great freckles, and as you know, i'm a sucker for freckles. ;) I really hope you like this portrait i did based off of a polaroid from lemanagement.dk. I posted below a few of my favorite Polaroid's of anna. Hopefully we can do some interviews on the next ones so we can share the girls personalities as well as looks. ;) If you have any suggestions of new girls who you think would be good for this series, Dave & I would love here them, so just the name or a picture of the person on our Facebook page.
Lastly, i just wanted to let you know what's been going on for the last few months. As i'm sure you can tell, my posting has been quite pathetic lately. It's not due to a lack of interest. Since the start of the year, I've had a slight career change from Illustration, to doing more Creative Direction of a hand full of special projects i've been wanting to do for the last 6 or 7 years now, which has been quiet the learning curve. So, keeping up blogging and emails so far this year has been super tough. Luckily, I finally feel like i've got things pretty manageable, so i'm hoping to be back posting consistently again. For those who haven't given up on us, sorry, thanks for your patience, and i hope you like what we have going forward. :)
