playing dress-up with Bjork!
posted: January 14, 2007
Bjork and I had a blast collaborating on these photo-illustrations, back when I was a photographer and slowly moving over to painting and illustration. These were done well before the days of Photoshop.

With the help of some wonderful stylists and hair and make-up people, she and her Sugarcubes bandmate Siggi were transformed into some of my favorite fairy tale, nursery rhyme and fictional characters. I then posed them in front of a white backdrop, photographed them, made color xeroxes of the shots I liked, and then painted the backgrounds directly onto the color xeroxes. Seems so primitive now!

Check out my gallery for the rest.

Real nice, Laura! You entered illustration w/a BANG! BTW, here's a poem I wrote a few years back: "Jack & Jill" I forgot that Jack Jones was married to Jill St. John
