Q&A with YWS

I had the pleasure of being photographed by local photographer Cedric Smith a few weeks ago.  The pictures were for a feature "Savannah, have you met..." on You're Welcome Savannah, a great blog focusing on Savannah lifestyle, fashion, and food.  I couldn't be more pleased with how the photos turned out.

BORN TO DIE

A product of recent internet hype, Lana Del Rey is currently one of the most quickly emerging artists.  Her album "Born to Die," which has mixed reviews from critics, drops tomorrow.  I'm interested to see the direction her career goes in.  Will she fade back in obscurity, or will she continue to live up to the hype?

For this piece, I used a repeat pattern that I created a while back.

the article is about how brides have been portrayed negatively in television in film lately, and how bridesmaids are the ones we seem to identify with.  i got my copy in the mail last week - it looks great!

overall, a really fun illustration to work on.  thanks, BUST!
