New Body Art: Renee Mode x 2Minxinx

DSC_8830UntitledToday I got to shoot with Renee from ReneeMode.com. As soon as I woke up, the  model was already at my door, eye boogers and all….me, not her! since Renee was running a  bit l ate, I started painting right away, figured she’ll show up right when it was time to shoot. Boy, was I right.

Model Jordana was a quiet, sweetie and her sweetness shined unto these photographs.

Come back a little later for behind the scenes shots lovies. 🙂 DSC_8862.2

The Smalls Family: Based On The Lyrics Of The Notorious B.I.G (Biggie Smalls) [Skit]

Untitled

Every now and then I bump into the best things online, and this time I was not disappointed. David Catalano has me cracking up with these mini episodes of “The Smalls Family” which is based on the lyrics of The Notorious B.I.G.

Not only  is it creative to see Biggie’s lyrics used in real world situations, but I see his documentaries going far. I only wish his videos were being marketed more. I can’t wait to see what he comes up with. But let me stop rambling, and let me know if you guys like these as much as I did. Go subscribe to his YouTube channel and support something artistic.

I in no way own this brand, David’s videos or Biggie’s music.

Tribeca Film Festival: Mary Poppins & Musical Stylings of Cristina Gatti

1Untitled

I was sooooooo cold. I can’t even exaggerate my shivering. I wore some cute little ballet flats, and ended up suffering.  I met up with David and friends, and Rosa ended up being my cuddle buddy, especially since she brought  a quilt big enough for 2.

After the movie, we headed to a nice little spot that looked straight from the 30’s. Cristina Gatti, one of David’s  friends was performing post modern juke box style. She reminds me of Amy Winehouse  with her raspy voice and I couldn’t love it anymore! Check out the pics and vids from this night. I also included one of her other videos of her singing Beyonce’s Drunk in Love, which I personally think is waaay better. Check it out.

Later guys.

Love Lavache at Gallery Bar

1It’s been a long time since I had a little fun. Meeting up with Misha I decided the perfect place was to head to Gallery Bar where Tanya (Love Lavache was) showcasing one of her painting in support of :tumblr_n3ok9rdKbv1s6g39lo1_500When we got there it was super early, and we had the chance to mingle with other artists. Misha couldn’t resist purchasing one of ChrisOriginals fitted caps.

I definitely liked the orange one the best. He was cool people so we basically kidnapped him for the night until the rest of our party got there. After all the performers, poets, rappers, singers did their thing, the small gallery turned into a lounge vibe and the dj started to play some cool 2003_2009 hits. Which got us all excited so we decided to dance, and dance we did.
Enjoy the pics of our night.

On The Set : Toby Love’s music video Lejos

 

The driven Jorge and and Edgar asked Misha  and I to be P.A.’s for an upcoming project.

and I was excited, how could I say no?

The talented  Danny Hastings from Atomicus Films would be shooting, for all you spanish music lovers out there, bachatero  Toby Love ‘s  new music  video, Lejos.

The first day we started to  set up, I was up and ready to go by like 10 p,m Yes, we were working at night.

Once we got to the location, everything was covered in dust. We had so much work to do.

We needed to make a  bar, work on the stage, remove  many furniture that just doesnt fit, clean, paint, add lights,  and  so on.

So we got started.

After all the work we did, we still were not  finished.  Day two rolled around and we got started right away. Jorge started to paint his speak easy sign while I got a hold of the curtains that are on stage. I have to say, with the limited fabric I had, I think I did them enough justice. ♥

Day three, time to shoot.

I had  to go to work, and couldn’t be there by 5am like everyone else. I got to work at 5 am and left by 9am.

I couldn’t miss this. I finally arrived by 10:30am ( long way to Brooklyn )  and everyone was already set up.

I was glad I didn’t miss much.

The wonderful Pia  was doing wardrobe  and I have to say she did great!

I’ve seen her strut her fashion senses when we were in High School together,  in  our fashion illustration classes together, and even in our annual fashion talent  shows,  but things like that are never really the same once you’re rushed and being put under pressure because of timing and one horrible person you have to deal with and answer to.

Yes, I went there. hahaha

Any way, to back to our behind the scenes posts, enough drama.

Toby Love was actually a very chill person.

You could tell he was loved by many , not just because of his twitter stats, but because he was very down to  earth, cracking jokes and such kind of dude.

I cannot express enough how much I was glad he was just him and nothing to extravagant.

Hooray for celebrities that aren’t douche-bags!

 

Can you believe this awesome dress that the female lead Sally was wearing for the Flash back shot was Pia’s High school Prom dress!

It looked amazing on her.

Sally’s acting was on point, especially her face expressions.

 

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed a sneak peak into this video.  I have been holding this post hostage until Gabriel was finished editing all the clips together, so you guys can have everything at once.

Everyone was absolutely fantastic to work with. I had such a great time and experience and I definitely hope it’s not the last.

So enough stalling, here’s the end result. Enjoy, and please don’t forget to visit all the links below that take it back to those who made it happen.
