SO.........it's been a while since I've blogged, but I have lots to share:)
Ok, so those of you who watch "The Bachelor" or "The Bachelorette" here is some news for you. Apparently, last season there was a guy on the show that everyone fell in love with named Jason who has a son. He was eliminated, but he is definitely not out of the race, because he is the bachelor this season.
I was able to get to meet some of his potential mates, when I did the make up and hair for the lucky ladies to look beautiful for the infamous "rose ceremony". It was very top secret, and I can't reveal anything about them until January, except they were some of the sweetest, most down to earth women ever! Stay tuned on ABC!
On October 22, 2008, Manuel and I did it again!! We successfully completed our 3rd Annual Artist Appreciation Night. This time we partnered with Art Share LA to raise money for the non-profit, and its various art programs. The night was filled with great music, great drinks, great food, and creative people.
Several expressions of artistic talent took place at the same time which included a live photoshoot with make-up art, live art on canvas, body art, body paint and a live band with DJ. This year’s featured artists included celebrity make-up artists' CC Moten and myself of Lollipop Artistry's. Fashion Stylist, Chris Jovan along with visual artists Jason Lee (Subrage Art), Nick Miller (The Gusz), Santiago Heredia (Roborganiz) and Michael Norice (Byn Customs). Fashion designers Tina Summers (Cowgirl Heaven), Cheryl Koo (The Other Duck), Kafka (Reset Couture), and of course Manuel Jackson (Ekqualyte). We also featured art from Louis (age 2) and Kane Vitale (age 3), their mother started an organization called Angelboy Art to help children with special needs express themselves through art. Her son Louis has a rare condition called arthrogryposis, and painting is a form of exercise for him. For more information about this organization visit www.angelboyart.org.
The night was definitely one to remember. We raised close to $500 in a matter of 3 hours, and everyone had a good time. Please check out the pictures below, and www.myspace.com/ekqaap for more information on how to be involved next year! Special thanks to Tiffani, Mahogany, Jamie, Sky, Bianca, Houstina, Chris Jovan, and Erica Sanae:) Also, much love to Glitterati Magazine, Honest Tea, and all the photographers who attended.
Photo shoot for Fashionberry Magazine was a success on October 27, 2008. The designer Eva Davore had great pieces, and the model was fantastic. Shot by Naoe.....behind the scenes soon to come!
