How are you? Well, David and i have been working hard the last few weeks on finishing up the first draft of our book. We are currently 450 pages into it and 7 pages into the last chapter. It’s kinda surreal that we will be finished with it in the next few days. Well, I’m really happy to finally get to share this amazing short film of my mural for Tiffany & Company last month. My friend Nick Bowser filmed and edited it, and my friend Tim Frost wrote the music. It really turned out amazing.
Well, my friends, it’s finally up! So excited to share this with you. I was asked by IMG Models to make a stop motion video of coloring their Show book for this season that came out today. The Show book is incredible. It was made in a way that it’s a coloring book, and every model’s showcard can tear out if you want to. I decided to keep my book intact seeing as it’s the largest coloring book I own. It was actually the first show package I’ve ever received, which was cool in itself. I got the coloring book Friday morning, and started coloring right away. Three days, 9 large bags of candy, 138 pages and 6,435 pictures later, this video was born. Saturday morning, David and I were at Peet’s drinking coffee (a Saturday morning Family Tradition), when we came up with the idea of incorporating candy into the video. We thought that Models, candy, and coloring books would be the best combo ever. We picked up 9 massive bags of candy and separated every candy and every color into different glasses. As i colored, David and his girlfriend Kristie would arrange and re-arrange the candy patterns between frames. I think my favorite in the video is in the finale, David had the idea of having the Starbursts bloom like flowers. It happens really fast, but looks really cool. There are a lot of fun little hidden things in the video, so it might be worth watching with YouTube slow motion, like the Starburst pacman, and when i paint one of the pictures with pink Good & Plenties dipped in water. I think we will post tomorrow some of our favorite stills from the video. Oh yea, and the song is by my friends, Zac, Ryan and Alice Baxley. They have a side project called “Cars! Bullets! Trains!!!” and the song is called “Just Count to Ten”. Well, I hope you like it. We had so much fun making it. Let me know what you think. ;)
(Photo’s by my friend Nick Bowser, my Sister Mandi, and me)I thought i would put together a sort of summary post of alot of the pictures from the Tiffany & Co. SoHo painting since it came down today. It’s really hard to believe that I finished it a week ago today. Time moves by way too fast. We had so much fun out in NYC working on the project, and it was so fun to have so many friends stop by and say hi! Thank you all so much for all of your support throughout the entire thing. My friend Nick Bowser took most of the photos. He was nice enough to come down and shoot while I was painting and David was live streaming. This project was extra fun because our older sister Mandi got to come out to NY with us. She works in LA as a architect, and it pretty busy, so it was special for us to have her along for the adventure. I think Nick is putting together a video. so we will hopefully be posting that soon. Also a lot of you have asked me if i’m going to add prints of the Tiffany’s Mural to my store. We are working on getting permission, and will let you know if we can do prints.
Book Update: We are now up to 333 pages written… so close to finishing this Book… well the first draft that is ;)
I finished the first day of painting at the Tiffany & Co. SoHo store. The print got installed and I began painting gold on the bodice of one of the dresses. I really like how it is looking so far. Also, David did some live streaming yesterday, and I included some of the video from that below. Sorry that we had some bad links to the streaming yesterday. We will definitely have a post up today where you can watch it. :)
I hope you had a great weekend. Well, got some amazing news for you all!
I’m happy to say, I have a new massive canvas awaiting me in New York!
I had the honor to be asked by the incredible Tiffany & Co. to come out in two weeks to paint a mural on the hoarding outside the new Tiffany’s in SoHo. Basically, I’m going to be working non-stop till we fly out there. So, if i don’t comment back, don’t worry, I’m planning on going back through all the posts and responding to you all. :) It’s just been a little crazy. I can’t wait for you to see the final art work. If you are in New York in a few weeks, stop by Green Street in Soho, and hang out with us as I paint. We’ll announce the exact dates soon. :) Hope you’re doing great.
