Gothic Beauty Followup

Thanks to Shelli’s comment I go a hold of my Gothic Beauty yesterday at Hot Topic. I haven’t scanned it yet, but this is the cover – not my image: This is the image: The model is Batty and the MUA was Kelly Ingram. Batty has been on the cover of GB before. She designs…

My First Tear Sheet

Looks like I got my first tear sheet in a nationally distributed magazine. The image is in Gothic Beauty and is of Batty from one of my first shoots. It is published with an article about the woman who designed the dress. Needless to say I am excited! Haven’t been able to find a copy…
