Urban nutcracker suite fun!

Post by Mehndi Masala on Mon Dec 12, 2011 12:27 pm



Doing a fun event on the 20th! Sketchers, photographers or peeps that want to take photographs for reference in sketches come down to an event concept group called Drawn and Plastered! Models in costume and body paint will act, pose for pics and hold for sketches all evening and this event's theme is an Urban Nutcracker Suite!

Did a 'dress rehersal' and they took good photos that I haven't seen yet, but I took some reference photos and did a little poster for artists in my area to come down and see us...here it is! Limited time and alot of models mean that the detail is basic on some of them, but all and all ...really looking forward to the networking opportunity! Thought I would share!

Thanks so much guys!!

LOL Yeah...he's a looker and he sits SO WELL!! UNLIKE the ratking. As a matter of fact at the first concept meeting, they were introducing the characters and they pointed at the guy that is the now Rat Kinhg as being the prince. My reaction was...Unnnnn....oooooooo...thank you! BUT instead I said:
"I can see that, but I think I see him more as the cool rat king in a 'biker' kind of way. HERE is who I can offer as the prince!" And showed them Aj's Halloween shirtless picture. That was the end of the discussion.

Of course...there WAS no rat king slotted for this event but knowing a bit about the story, I thought FAST. EVEN MORE glad I did. Rat king just kept grumbling about wanting beer, how can I drink without a straw then? Acted like a petulent 5 year old when I tried to touch his makeup or push some of the hair out of his face. The younger girls though this 'act' was funny. It was unprofessional and I really am in no hurry to work with him again after the 20th. Unless I'm being paid VERY nicely, he is no longer invited to that party. Worst part? he wasn't trying to act in character. I got the 'Jerk' vibe even at the meeting........

But gotta say...he *did* wear the rat king face well!!

Makes my sweet Aj even more wonderful to paint!!

@jolene- I'm pretty patient! I get told that I'm fantastic with kids alot and have tons of patience, but it's easy when you know they are going home NOT with you! LOL But yeah....the guy was starting to try mine and tread on that last nerve.

@Kat - LOL he would probably blush! I let him know that when I show off my work, the canvas does not go unnoticed and he's pretty good about it. He was a nerd growing up from what I gather and now he is the hot bartender...I think he still sometimes sees that nerd in the mirror! But it makes him sweet, funny and (as far as I can tell) he has no big ego and is VERY good at handling people! Great charmer!

There were three cameras going at the dress rehersal yesterday! Here is Aj being all heroic



Here he is as his usual self...happy and smiling


More pix as they come available will be here:

Ummm.....starting to think I should be starting a fan club! LOL Just kidding! I tell ya tho, if I was rich enough to have a full time booth babe....he would be it!! bring in all the ladies I think!
