Aside from the pottery I am in the process of firing, I haven't done any new crafts in awhile, so I have nothing to show or talk about.  I have a bunch of things I am working on, but it will be a few weeks before anything is showable.  However, I am a photographer as my main "gig", and a make-up artist.  What I am most popular for locally are the portraits and face paintings I do.  They vary from soft, to odd, to plain out weird.  Thought I'd share one.  Smiley  Help myself feel like I belong here a little until I have a craft to post.  Smiley

The following is a piece I did of a local girl, Sarah...  and is one of my favorites.



I know it's not a "craft"...  but it's part of my creative side, so I thought I'd throw it out there.  Smiley

that's awesome.
there's much to be said for really good faicepainters. i went to a (terrible) nightclub launch once, and the highlight was a lady doing really, really nice, quick, pro, grown-up looking face/ body painting. she was doing feathered masks on all the girls, with glitter and metallic paint.
but because i was surly i asked for the tackiest cliche i could think of (a dolphin on my bicep).

do you have any more photos of your stuff, or a website? i'd like to see more.

I just got a piece of pottery I fired this week back today, it's unpainted, but I wanna do a before and after photo this weekend.  I'm hugely proud of it.  I'll show it off when I have it.  Thanks again all for the nice words.  Smiley
