Love may be in the air, and she's got a crossbow...

Hello Lovelies~

Well, here we are in August already. Hard to believe the last month of summer is already upon us. We've had some crazy heat up north here this summer, but that hasn't kept me from working tirelessly to bring you new eye candy. First up, here is my latest art print: Cupid Revisited. I decided to throw the babies and the men in diapers out the window and create a more cutting edge cupid with weapons and bloody wings and raw power. Let me know what you think!


And, I also recently shot a new model to help her on a project and she let me post a few pics from the shoot for you Kids. I call this shot Space Girl Pop and she is also available as a print in my shop. The rest of the photos from that shoot are on my Flickr page, go check 'em out!


I have started setting up my profile over at Behance (more to follow on that), and I found a wonderful artist over there I wanted to share with you. Mariana Monteagudo's Fake Idols series is just amazing. The work is mixed media so it uses materials of all types, as well as hints of popular culture, to create works that seem both familiar and strange simultaneously. These pieces are cute and unsettling at the same time, which I think is the point. Still, take a look and let me know what you think.


And I'm going to wrap up with a movie recommendation. Do you like the Austin Powers movies? Modesty Blaise? Foxxy Brown? Well, if you like that 1960's international spy tongue-in-cheek humor, then you'll love In Like Flint. It stars James Coburn as the rather unlikely ladies' man and genius action hero spy. The sets and the corny dialogue make it worth the watch and there are tons of neat gadgets and costumes to keep you watching. I won't bore you with the plot, but if you have a chance, it's on Netflix right now. Here are some teaser shots:

Nice band-aid, James...

Until next time: unpleasant dreams...

The Fake Idols are very appealing to me....and your strong cupid looks so much more effective than boys and babies in their naps!

Aren't those idols great? Such neat work. And thank you! Yes, she's no-nonsense for sure. :)
