On the 29th of March, 2017, Shannon Kelly, makeup artist Mariam Marand and I collaborated on an image for Happy Abandon's new album cover: "Facepaint." Eliza, the band manager's daughter, sat in my small studio patiently while makeup artist Mariam from Raleigh painted her face for over two hours. The process involved applying the texture to her face, drying it with a blowdryer, then applying another layer of texture. Once the textured foundation was complete the colored paint was brushed onto the canvas and we began shooting. Below are a few shots which document the process.
