The Glossy Project: Revamped

I have taken a few months off in order to work on other
projects and other 'glossy-related' goodness..... which are still in progress.
I simply can't wait to share it with you.

I have also revamped this blog and have changed and cleaned it up a bit in order to 
make room for some super fantastic BIG news.

In the meantime, you can read more about The Glossy Project and this technique in
Jenny Doh's book called Creative Pilgrimage.

enjoy the video below.

November : glossy of the month

When The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is released on December 21, boobs on a poster will be the least of anyone’s concerns. In case you have somehow missed it, Swedish writer Stieg Larsson’s novel of the same title, published posthumously in 2005, may well be the unlikeliest runaway best-seller in publishing history, filled as it is with impossible-to-pronounce Swedish names, nefarious financial intrigue, festering Nazism—and some of the most disturbing sexual violence imaginable. As The New York Times put it, “The novel offers a thoroughly ugly view of human nature.” Though Dragon Tattoo is, at its core, a conventional thriller crossed with an old-fashioned murder mystery, the book, like its writer, is bizarrely preoccupied with graphic violence against women. (Larsson supposedly witnessed a gang rape when he was fifteen and never forgave himself for not intervening to help the girl—named, you guessed it, Lisbeth.) Indeed, the infamous rape and revenge scenes in the book are so painstakingly realized on the page that it’s hard not to wonder if Larsson was indulging a few submerged fantasies of his own. Despite all this, the so-called Millennium Trilogy (which includes The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest) has sold more than 50 million copies worldwide.

September: glossy of the month

This is the glossy for September with Jennifer Lopez on the cover.
I am working this one on a floral piece of fabric which should be a really different and interesting effect.
Oh, and by the way.... I have been working on several different projects, and I am so very happy to announce that The Glossy Project will be featured in an upcoming book.
More information on that in December.
In the meantime, glossy on!

“That was my biggest dream, and I really worked hard at it. We both did,” Jennifer Lopez tells Vanity Fair in her first interview since announcing that she and Marc Anthony are divorcing. “Sometimes it doesn’t work—and that’s sad. But I remain an eternal optimist about love. I believe in love,” Lopez says. “It’s still my biggest dream. I am positive—determined to move forward with my life, bring up my babies, and do the best job I can as a mother, entertainer, and person. I now look forward to new challenges. I feel strong.”
