Art&Artist Collaboration

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of doing a collaboration with Allison of Allison Jean Photo!

I have known Allison since elementary school, it's crazy! We only live five minutes from each other, but for some reason never collaborated before,-so we thought we'd change that!

Allison came to me with her idea of doing a series on artists at work, and I couldn't have been more excited! I have always loved pictures of artists "in their element", so I of course agreed (Plus, she's a wicked photographer). However, when she told me she wanted me to be one of the models! I was a little hesitant at first, because I've always been really camera shy, but I knew she would do a great job so I said yes!

We got up super early (or at least for us non-early birds!) and went to a dirt road near our homes. We drive by it every day and both thought it looked neat, so we thought we'd try it out! Lighting, scenery, and even temperature was perfect. (Except for a horrid smell from a coyote carcass we later discovered. Yikes!)

Let's start with the photos by Allison:

Here's me with my setup, looking all artsy.

One of my woodcuts!

We threw some charcoal drawing in too!

 And here are my pictures of Allison:

She's so cute, right?

 Some of her awesome prints! 

And she paints too! 

I had a great time and can't wait to see what other artists will be in her Art & Artist series!
