Left and Right

Mari

The girl on the left is slender.  The girl on the right is not.  The girl on the left is what society idealizes.  The girl on the right is not.  The girl on the left gets told to eat more.  The girl on the right gets told to eat less.  The girl on the left gets dirty looks. The girl on the right gets dirty looks.  It is assumed that the girl on the left has an eating disorder.  It is assumed the girl on the right never gets off the couch.  The girl on the left gets her wardrobe criticized for being too revealing. The girl on the right gets her wardrobe criticized for being too boring.  The girl on the left has been trying to put on weight for years, and the doctors can’t figure out what’s wrong.  The girl on the right has been trying to lose weight for years, and the doctors can’t figure out what’s wrong.  The girl on the left and the girl on the right adore each other. The girl on the left is an opera/church singer with two children.  The girl on the right is an artist and photographer with two pets.  Both are more than a picture.  Both are so much more than what you see.  So are you.  So is everyone.

I’ll be doing more pieces like this over at Patreon…love to see you there!

 

David

Yes, it’s about time for some more man candy up in this joint…

David is an actor/model, and my second instagrammer.  It’s fun for me to meet and work with people I meet on instagram.  Anyway, he let me know that he was coming to Seattle last Tuesday, so we decided to get together and shoot.  Thankfully, he is a cat person, as Slinky pulled his usual diva stunts…

Eric

Meet my first male nude subject ever!  I’m not even sure how long ago this was! I’d been shooting mostly women for a few years, and a few clothed males when Eric contacted me.  He was experienced in posing nude already, and was a complete gentleman the whole way through.  It felt a little strange at first…kind of a throwback to my first male nude in figure drawing when I was still in high school (you want me to draw WHAT?).  But, like then, I got over it fast.  All too easy and fun now.
