Outrage in the Art Community

This AMAZING SFX/Gore/Horror Makeup artist is being CRIMINALLY CHARGED with "moral corruption". Yep. You didn't read that wrong. He lives in Canada and they want to put him in jail because his art is offensive and morally wrong.

Well guess what... so is a lot of other art in the world. So is some of my own art.
I'm absolutely shocked by this.... I thought it was the 21st century and everybody was becoming more open minded about freedom of expression. ESPECIALLY in a country like Canada. I expected better coming from them.

This poor guy might get put in jail because he's not afraid to push the envelope and challenge the viewer. Everything he does is fake and none of his models are harmed. In fact, I'm pretty sure they have fun doing it.

You can find his work and his journal regarding the issue on deviantart, but you can only view most of his work if you have a dA account:

InnerDepravity's Journal

I'm really disgusted by this. And I hope he is able to fight the legal battle because as far as I'm concerned, people who produce in your face art are more than entitled to have a place in the art world.

Rapists and Murderers should be put in jail, not artists.

Blue Goo - First blog post

Model is Viperjoe aka V Larsen
This was my second time working with her. And this is just one of five concepts we did. She really did shave her head for this, however it wasn't the first time she'd shaved it. I did the makeup. The blue goo is made out of honey mixed with blue food coloring. The blue liquid in the glass container is water with blue food coloring. This was a fun, messy shoot. And she was overcoming a fear of having things drip on her face.

This is my first Blogger post. I decided to make one to document my photo shoots. I will be posting new photos from new shoots. I will be posting behind the scenes images. And I will be explaining the processes behind the photos. Things like makeup, prop set up and any fun info about stuff that happened during the shoot. I've been told in the past I should set something like this up and I just never got around to it until now.
