Illustration: Working On My Fitness

  It seems like most of my feed on my instagram is all about fitness at the moment. A lot of his to do with the fact that I went a following spree ever since I started to work out. Yes, you read that right. It’s been a long month, but I’m so happy I decided to take care of myself a little bit better.
I know I have some extra weight on me, but I honestly couldn’t care less. I wanted to better my health and for me to do that, I need to focus on making better choices. Plus all the extra endorphins has left me in such a great mood lately! Talk about win-win.
My dad is the perfect workout partner, we meet up after work do our best to keep each other motivated. We have the cutest little routine when it comes to working on our abs (or lack thereof) .
I drew this illustration in honor of this new chapter in my life. Though my butt looks nothing close to that (gooooals) Here’s to hoping it’s not just a stage, but a lifestyle change. Wish me luck guys….

and yes, after 25 squats, I walk away wobbling like bambi.

New Body Art: Twerk Tomboy Twerk

2minxinxfunfaced22minxinxI’ve been waiting a little while for these batches of body art to come back to me. David Zayas Jr. is always great when it comes to editing and obviously capturing the beauty in all the girls we work with. This time we worked with model Annie, and when I saw her Timbs and baggy jeans, I already knew this was gonna be a tomboy shoot.

I’ll admit, I wish you can see the artwork more, but practice makes perfect. I do however regret not covering her nipples the way I would usually cover up the models, which is with, you guessed it…paint!

I hope you guys like this set, I’ll be back soon with more sets from different shoots, you know I have to spoil you guys!

@Phuckyocurlz came through and was a pleasure to work with.

I fell in love with her curls through instagram and knew that I wanted to make something a bit playful. She already had some colorful striped socks and white frilly undies…

So instead of putting her in some heels, like I usually do all the girls, I gave her some bright neon green skippies and got to snapping.

She looks so cute.

Thanks for stopping by Monique!

Come & Watch Me Paint Live This Saturday!

55 Live!


( click on any image to make larger )

As you all know I had gig this Thursday the 16th. I had posted a flyer earlier in the month inviting you all to come and watch me paint my live!
……….………………..
Maury from 55 was hosting a Deep In The Heights event that’s held in Negro Claro Lounge

The great and talented Marthalicia introduced us and put this all together. We even got to the paint the models together! But lets not skip ahead to the random parts of the event.

I know I had to get to the heights at 10:30 pm. N and I were munching on pizza, can’t go anywhere on an empty stomach! Headed to the UPS base and ended up waiting an hour and half on a huge line. Waiting for all the delivery trucks to arrive.

I ordered my business cards about a little less than a month ago and have been going through the only hassle to receive them. The wait was well worth it. A cab ride later I made it to the lounge at 10:32pm right on time. Still early actually!

We walked in and the outside of the place was completely misleading. The outside looked so plain, covered in wood panels. The inside was gorgeous. Nice dim lighting. Beautiful booths for the VIP over looking the bar, dance floor and DJ booth. I had the best view in the house.

Maury was a delight to meet, and I quickly introduced him to the models, N, Ralph, cousin of N who was there to not only enjoy himself and see me in action but to make sure the models would not be disrespected in any kind of way.

Men, liquor, Open bar in this case does not always mix well with naked ladies in public. So of course I needed to have that extra protection for them.

Speaking of the models. I had the greatest pleasure of having two beautiful ladies join me in this adventure. Of course they were the canvas! Tina, which you all have met before when she was the canvas for the Legalize Gay Marriage Bodyart session. and joining me this time, I had first timer Samantha “Spankss” working with me and she was excited as ever!

I set up all the paint, brushes etc. Until I realized I would be painting in the dark! I have never painted without light before. I was handed a tiny flashlight, so I did the only thing I could do….grabbed a drink and got to work! hahahaha….

I was so grateful for how many faces I recognized and came out to show support. Carlos, Zero,Kat, Phil, Emil, Jessi,Maria,David,Jerm,Gerald and many more that I just can’t simply recall. Sorry if I left anyone out and be sure to click on any person’s name for their twitter account.

Of course I had the bestfriend and photographer Ari shoot.

Guess I wasn’t the only person with that in mind. There was so many cameras! At one point that had me, the models and Marthalicia pose in front of a rock decor looking wall, and no lie there was about 10 different professional camera flashes being flashed in our faces. If we moved we were quickly being yelled at to go back and take more pictures!

It was definitely a different experience since I’m usually behind the scenes… I caught myself plenty of times feeling awkward not knowing how to pose or smile. Doesn’t mean I didn’t like the feeling though!

Seeing Carlos and Maria dance was way too funny! Carlos got on the floor, knees and all moving to the music with his body all on the floor! hahaha I was not expecting that!

Everyone seemed like they were having a great time and I was so happy to see everyone who showed up!

It felt like a twitter party and everyone already started to get frisky!

Thank you to everyone who showed up and showed support, I really appreciate it. Thank you to Marthalicia and Maury for making this possible.

Thank you to Ari for taking wonderful photographs.

Stay posted for more photographs and videos of the night. Way too many to fit into one entry! I’m overwhelmed! Don’t forget to click on any image to make it larger!
