I did the makeup for this short film for Karolina Zmarlak's Fall/Winter 2011 collection... It's stemmed from her childhood growing up in communist Poland, and her collection is inspired by the women of Communism. It's amazing.

Vice asked me to do creepy caked on funeral makeup for a shoot.... So creepy and awesome.

This is a client of mine who wanted me to give her a "coon tail"..We took a load off her length but left it on the tail... She likes her hair to dry naturally, which is why her back is soaking wet. Haha, I had to dry the coon tail though so I could see it for myself
This is one of the strangest shoots I've ever been on, in a good way... This is what Dis Magazine had to say about it:
In coordination with Saks Fifth Avenue and the PS1 Greater New York Exhibition, Brody Condon was invited to contribute a project to be displayed in the Saks window on 50th St. Brody’s proposal was to film a performance inside Saks itself. To his surprise Saks was familiar with his work and agreed.
The piece, a modification of the Trisha Brown work Accumulation (1971), is a floor-based dance performance based on various seizure-like movements choreographed by Stephen Lichty, who is himself familiar with movement disorders
Check it out:
We got to hang out in Saks before it opened, which was pretty surreal. We shot in the fur department (gross) and some of the jackets were over $50 G's!!!! I never knew they were so pricey...no wonder why fur owners get so pissed when people throw paint at them!
So much has happened since the last blog, it's embarrassing that I haven't posted anything.. I've been sooo busy, so I'm not complaining!! Here are some shots from an ecommerce shoot I did for Envite.. You may recognize the dark haired model from that show Survivor. She was one of the contestants that had to stand on a pole in the water for as long as possible. I would've lasted for about ten seconds. But in the end she won peanut butter, and she said it was the best thing she ever had, considering they starve them to death.
