martin bray...

Martin Bray is a beyond-talented make-up artist. Can you believe the images above are all body paint? I've never seen anything so lush! He's regular at our studio, as he often works with Tangent magazine (i've mentioned it before but these guys are the AMAZING online magazine that we share our office with). I think one of the best parts of my job is meeting truly, insanely creative people like Martin. We're encouraging him to compete at the world bodypainting championships this year. The themes are "subcultures" and "power". Do you have any ideas for what he should paint?!


p.s. Arrived safely in london yesterday. i watched 'up in the air' on the plane. scary how much george clooney reminded me of myself (the super efficient traveller part, not the emotionally detached part). I only ever travel with carry on- it saves so much time- i got through customs, immigration and out of the airport in 7mins!!! i have major jetlag- i woke up this morning at 3am. Luckily i subscribed to tonnes of magazines last time i was in london, which was 5 months ago... so i have a huge backlog of mags to keep me entertained.


  1. You can travel internationally with a carry on? I worship the travellator you stand on! Please share what you take to make your wardrobe efficient and that small!

    Rachel, you are so lucky to be in london!!!

  13. Looks like fashion makeup is used in magazine photography as well as on the fashion runway. Avant Garde Makeup is also an applicable technique used for projects that require experimental themes
