One Stylish Pinup!

I recently had the pleasure of transforming Fajr Muhammad, a Philadelphia based online writer, vintage enthusiast and online marketer into a stylish pinup.

Fajr has a unique voice in covering fashion and style and when she’s not busy playing dress up, she can be found writing for her own website Stylish Thought and running her online vintage store Missfit Vintage.

Fajr recently blogged about her pinup experience at my studio. To read all about her day visit her website Stylish Thought.

Sketched by A Playboy Cartoonist!!!

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Playboy cartoonist Doug Sneyd while in Chicago for the C2E2 Convention. Doug has been a cartoonist for Playboy magazine since 1964 and I was so lucky to have him draw a Playboy bunny charicature of myself in my copy of his book Unpublished Sneyd!

It was an amazing opportunity to meet both Doug and his wonderful friend Heidi Hutson - they are two of the sweetest people you will ever meet and Doug's work is such an inspiration to me! Doug blogged about our recent meeting on The Doug Sneyd Blog.

It isn't everyday that you get to be immortalized in a sketch by a Playboy cartoonist and to make my portrait complete Doug added the famous bunny ears. I am ecstatic that I had my chance and it definitely was a highlight of my trip - thanks Doug & Heidi!



Here I am modeling for Doug as he draws my portrait and Heidi takes my photo.

New Vargas Inspired Photos!!!





I recently photographed one of my amazing clients, Courtney, in a "Vargas" style photo shoot.

Albertp Vargas became well known in the 1940s for his World War II era pin-ups for Esquire magazine known as "Varga Girls." The nose art of many World War II aircraft was adapted from Vargas' Esquire pin-ups. Vargas' paintings have always been an inspiration to me and I was excited to pay homage to his work through my photographs.

Above are just two of the images from that day but there are more to follow so stay tuned!
