Mineral Poster – 2

After a good solid month of focusing on web projects and album artwork, booking photoshoots and planning new projects… my brain officially fried, shriveled and died. I feel like my creative process has hit a sort of limbo – now ALL art decision making is tough, color saturations are tough, and forget about font discernment (it takes me hours at this point).

So to combat the creative wall I’ve been hitting as of late,  I decided to photograph my personal rock and mineral collection, and put together a poster that had no preset layout, format or function. Its almost entirely a necessity for me to sometimes create art that starts with NO direction or thematic purpose. To start with a blank page and nonexistent idea is sometimes the best creative medicine for my brain :)

As far as the poster goes, I’m still not entirely sure what EXACTLY all of these minerals are — but the sulfur and fossilized agate coral are among my favorites. If anyone actually knows the titles of each of these specimens, that would be wildly amazing since I’d love to know (especially G, M and P). I am absolutely an amateur when it comes to mineralogy, BUT an admirer nonetheless.

Caterina Scorsone photoshoot

So a few months ago, I had the fabulous job of photographing Caterina Scorsone, from ABC’s Private Practice. We worked on a wide range of editorial-styled images all focused with use for Caterina’s press and media needs. We ended up having SUCH a great time,  especially once the costume wigs came out!! Below is only a super super short sneak-peek of what we accomplished during our photoshoot – I’m looking forward to sharing the rest once the images get published!

Check out her IMDb here!!     http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0778741/

Caterina Scorsone Website!

Designing Caterina’s website was a super fun challenge, and a great start to learning web-design skills – while being surrounded with a lot of wonderful support and people (BIG thanks to Aviva Cohen for basically being my translator and guide in the giant world of mysterious web-lingo). My photography is featured throughout the website and I am so so excited to be sharing the entire thing with you!!

The upside to used candles

Feeling sick today and got around to hammering an old, used-up candle, and then turning it into this. Been a dream of mine for a while now to make my own iron-cast jewelry…
