Coop shot me today at his studio.
It was Model's Choice. So I plunged.
To pose for non-penetration sort of feels like the dynamic opposite to shooting video for me. It's more about the variety of expressions, rather than keeping the consistent actions and gestures for porn movies. I can't hide who I am in the photos behind some lewd sex act involving someone else. The focus is all of my body and face and arched feet. Either way, I am still very enthusiastic about shooting with my friends because I cherish them and their art too.
Now I know what it looks like to have thousands of Japanese toys. Soon, there will be a million.
Polaroids Are So Happy
At the end of my modeling shift, Coop took over my post and sat down for a portrait. He is a very patient and interesting subject. I love all of his facial hair! But I was nervous because I like to talk, but that could fuck up my drawing. I want to be the artist of my dreams so badly. Right now, I believe I am that.
If I believed in a god
He would be Dave
And I would sing hymns to him, declare my faith to him, worship and praise everyday and night and say "God, Damn It! I love you."
My drawing of Coop is now in the good company of my unfinished "erotic" painting.
Almost done, I hope. This piece actually has a deadline! For a Show I'm in with Dave on Sept.6
