Studio 'Staches...

Hello Lovelies~

Hope you are all well! As I mentioned several posts ago, I now have a photography studio and I am shifting the focus of my work and Stapelia in general, to just photography. I am in the studio shooting every weekend now and I've created a new Flickr album for these exploits. Candids, studio and location shots will all be housed here, including my humorous new series that turns a dirty phrase on its ear entitled Mustache Rides. You have to see it to believe it, here's a peek:


In addition to the studio work, next week, I am starting a second blog in collaboration with a writer friend of mine entitled Phantomas, that mixes photography and fictional writing to create weekly forays into the unknown. If all goes according to plan, the first post will go up the 28th. It should be interesting, so set your feeds now!


Speaking of forays into the unknown, have you guys seen the work of Mike Doyle? Well, I say "work", but for him it's play that he just takes really seriously. Mike is a Lego artist who has fashioned 2 life-like abandoned houses out of only Legos, no paint, no glue and these houses are ridiculous. The detail? The amount of time spent? I'm always amazed when people use materials with strict constraints to make something beautiful... and these certainly are that.


Have I got a movie recommendation for you Kiddies. I can't believe I haven't suggested this one before: PIN. Heard of it? It's pretty obscure. My sister and I read the book years ago and it creeped us both out, and then we found a movie version. Uh uh. It's like Flowers in the Attic meets a life-sized anatomical teaching dummy. I won't spoil it for you, check it out and let me know what you think...

Yeah, PIN looks like a skinless Rene Auberjonois... yikes.

Until next time: unpleasant dreams...
