The Judge at the Court House

The judge at court house 1 The judge at court house 20

 

So I was working at an actual court house and it occurred to me that never in my life would I probably have such an opportune moment to use a court room.

My friend had been wanting to get painted and we took a day to paint and go. The only down side is that I wish I had had better lighting, time and even more props.

I did however put myself in hand cuffs. The order in which I had the pictures sort of tell a story. Judge is there and points. Then I’m in the box and she points at me, and then as if I’m hauled off she flicks me off toward the court room, Guilty! Then I’m pleading to not be sentenced, lol.

Unfortunately when I upload pics to my site the order gets all switched around.

But anyways here ya go, a judge with a, “pearl necklace”, if ya get my suave idea of the matter, heehee. Yeah, ya have to see the close up shots in the gallery. I have a sick sense of humor.

Flock of Flowers

Flock Flowers 3

 

Can you tell which is flowers and which is paint???

Also the top is paint…

We were heading to a music festival. I had been wanting to use a particular field that gets completely covered by the flocks. Had the idea to do it for a long time. However due to time constraint I wound up just picking a spot on the side of the road with a good amount of flocks.

I’d like to do this or well something similar again when the flocks come into bloom in that field.

House of Beer Body Paint Jam 2012

House of Beer 2

House of Beer 10

 

 

I seen an event for a body paint jam on facebook at House of Beer, and I notice a couple or so people I knew going. I asked someone and was told I should come out with someone I’ve body painted. It was a good excuse to do up someone with little more creativity involved. Time wasn’t still quite on my side as it often isn’t when I body paint but I was happy with what I created.

 

I painted over the pasties and for some reason it’s hard to not want to paint a nipple back over the pasties, lol. However I had an idea in mind to make the fake nipple appear to be pierced with a large needle. I then had it threaded with a string and attached to another large hook needle. Using some latex skin stuff called zombie skin, I made it look like the large hook needle is piercing the faces eye brow. The same thing was done for the other needle.

 

At the paint jam there was many models and photographers and artist and with great works. Nix Nerrera had put on the event. Last I knew he was on the show Face Off which is a reality television game show on the Syfy cable network in which a group of prosthetic makeup artist competes.

 

Also gotta thank Jay Bautista who I met back when along with the Wolfe Brothers, who let me barrow one of his paint brushes for a real quick touch up on my model.

 

After everyone was painted they did photo shoots with everyone together.

I also hung out with photographer Kato Rand a bit and we both took some photos of my model.

 

House of Beer in Orlando has 100 some beers I think it is on tap. What a selection.

Jambando 2012 FunkUs Jams Pink Floyd

Jambando 2012 20

Jambando 2012 9

 

 

Once again I paint on stage with FunkUs at the Jambando music fest at the Plaza Theater in Orlando. All the bands that played were to pick a band that played in the 70’s. FunkUs jammed out an entire set of Pink Floyd.

You can check them out at:

To be a little more visible body painting from the stage which was dark a lot and contending with lighted effect, I used fluorescent body paint along with a couple black lights to illuminate the paint.

 

I started my model out with a brick wall, using fluorescent yellow between the bricks as the cement to shine, and a heart inside a missing brick. We took some before photo shots of course.

 

On stage I only had 30 minutes to paint as that was how long each band played for. I used a gear stencil I had that I had never really used but it made for quick convenience. I painted a flying pink pig and a diamond.

 

Later that night we went to clubs down town and one club owner insisted we go in his club at no charge. Even got a couple shots of her dancing on top of one of the bars.

Biketober Fest 2012 with Great White and the Trans Am Band

Biketober Fest 2012 20

Biketober Fest Day 3 2012 13

 

We were all over. The girls wore the paint a couple days with little touch up’s and since its water proof body paint, they even went in the hot tub and swimming painted up. Made some good photo shots I took.

 

We got pictures with the Trans Am Band and the girls got on stage with the band.

 

Later we got to meet Great White and, got pictures with almost everyone in the band. I think Jack Russel, the singer was caught off guard a little when he seen the girls, hahaha.

 

We had a lot of fun at the Cabbage Patch and caught a little of the cole slaw wrestling but for the most part had fun meeting multiple people and get pics taken.

 

Me and one of the girls went and caught David Allen Coe play and Warrant over at Iron Horse Saloon. Also caught some opening acts. All in all a great time.
