I'm a COVER GIRL...
Well...not exactly, but my STUDIO & Ranger the cat are!!!
This is the secret that couldn't be told...BUT...today I got the word that I could finally share this exciting news.
Take a look!!! Click on the photo for a really big look!
I was thrilled when I got word that some photos of my studio would be included inside this special issue of Cloth Paper Scissors. It's called...STUDIOS. Hmmm...that makes sense...
Then...the story got better when it was considered for the cover. And the worse part??? KEEPING MY LIPS SEALED...geez...it about killed me!
So...we had a conference call...then a professional photographer came...and above is the result.
The process was very cool. He took photos, we emailed them to Larissa @ CPS.
..she made suggestions.
..we bribed the cat.
..and ended up with this shot. The photos were tricky because the room has 5 windows & 4 skylights. The lighting for me, as an artist, is perfect, but from a photography point of view...not fun to deal with. The shadows changed by the minute. But he did a great job & I'm beyond thrilled with the photo.
The photographer is Jake Krancic. He's an amazing photographer & all around GREAT GUY!!
THANK YOU JAKE!
The first issue of STUDIOS was such a huge success that they were bombarded with requests for a second issue. It is loaded with great photos and TONS of tips for organizing. If you haven't seen it...it's a must have.
I have to tell you that dealing with these folks was THE BEST experience. I've had many emails from Cate Prato...threatening to come steal my drawers...
she was kidding...I THINK??
She wanted a photo of me...I declined...she threatened to "photoshop" the cat's head on a body & say it was me...
she was kidding...I THINK???
I guess we'll see when this gets released on October 7th.
So...preordering info is here. It will be on newsstands on October 7th...
I'm anxious to see what's on the inside. I sent several room photos & some closeups.
I'm expecting LOTS of great photos from other studios & more organizing tips too. Floorplans, inspiration & MORE!!!
That's my story & I'm sticking to it!
