ray gun girl


"still working on the right title for this piece..."
24" x 18" colored pencil, graphite and paper collage on board.

This is my friend Alex, I took the source photo at a gathering that after the fact came to be known as the white face blue nose party ... baby powder/pool chalk. We all talked in Russian accents all night. I got several great shots that night, I'll be using another one soon. The collar, gun and goggles were all created by my friend Daniel. Lovely metal work, they're radical. During this particular shot and the ones surrounding it Alex was interacting with a poster of Edvard Munch's "The Scream". It was great. in fact, here's one from the set, so you can see for yourselves.

This is just awesome! The photo is great, but your rendering of the subject in combination with the background you have created makes it for a great peice! Kudos. Your characters are always interesting. They seem to have great stories to share.
