These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.

And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

Entropy says:

This is great. The calendar is fabulous and Heather knows how much we all love her. And we're helping her! It's all so remarkable!

I *heart* you guys!

bronxelf says:

I'll try to make some more promo images in between editing the last of the photos for Val.

17th Nov 2006, 12:51

befny says:

Thank you Geo & Paintist. Thanks Elf. This isn't the main shot for the calendar...that has more ...er... frontage in it. *g*

But this is from that shoot and makes a better promo pic as it's work safe, mostly!

17th Nov 2006, 13:48

bronxelf says:

Hell, this isnt even a merchandising shot. This was an *outtake*.

17th Nov 2006, 13:49

befny says:

Exactly! Salvaged from the cutting room floor.

Oh my. A true collectors item we could do, all the untouched outtakes, on disk.

er, mabye not!

17th Nov 2006, 13:55

bronxelf says:

I've *seen* all the photos.

How about no.

it's effing HOT. I love it.

17th Nov 2006, 13:58

bronxelf says:

I'll see who wants to be the next guinea pig volunteer for a promo image.

17th Nov 2006, 14:08

befny says:

Yeah. No.

Guinea Pig? G.P. ?? You've changed me to the GP?

17th Nov 2006, 14:16

bronxelf says:

No, you are always the GV. And Marianne just volunteered herself to be the GP.

17th Nov 2006, 14:16

yourhermione says:

well, if you change the V word to the P word, you are still the GP, but it sounds dirtier. ;)

17th Nov 2006, 14:27

befy says:

I really do love Marianne.

17th Nov 2006, 14:27

befny says:

yourhermione - pig? pussy? Are you saying they are all just anamalistic euphemisms for the same thing?

I think my head hurts.

17th Nov 2006, 14:29

yourhermione says:

well, I was thinking pussy. I would never call YOU a pig.

But yeah...the animalistic euphemisms seem to abound.

It's good to be a Guinea Pig. *grin*

bronxelf says:

Who's the next victim model?

17th Nov 2006, 15:43

bronxelf says:

Apparently, the next victim is Ysabel, cause she just volunteered.

17th Nov 2006, 16:27

befny says:

Excellent for Ysabel!

And then we can direct that guy on reddit or digg or whereever to go see the teasers.

And where is YOUR teaser, miss ?

17th Nov 2006, 16:37

bronxelf says:

I'll get to it. Technically there's 15 teasers. But I only did these two this morning because I was killing time waiting for Val to get into the office. I still have 16 actual photos to get off to Val, so these have to wait until I have time.

So those are likely the only two for today as I have Val's images to edit next, and then Deb's.

bronxelf says:

Oh and re: the guy on Reddit, feel free to redirect his happy ass.

Well if that is an out take ....

17th Nov 2006, 17:59

bronxelf says:

Maggie- it really is.

Has everyone seen this one yet?

Yeehaw! I can't wait for my calendars. :)

Thanks everyone. I will continue to make promotional images as time allows. Right now my main priority is wrapping things up so they can go to the printers. But when I have a little while, I will continue to work on promo things.

I am also going to rework the image of onceupon to a 2.0 version, so expect to see that one here first.

Right now, I am back to editing Miss March.
