Painted Face: Lichtenstein Inspired


Trenton Xavier and I wanted to do a Roy Lichtenstein shoot for months and were finally able to shoot this just weeks before my move to New York City. So thankful we got to do this!

Trenton has awesome vision and I was blown away when I saw his shots. He picked out the locations and we walked all over Dickson St and The Square to try each. The stares, whistles, waves, jaw drops and slowed down cars made it all the more fun. I truly began to feel like a cartoon character come to life.

Because this was inspired by Lichtenstein's work, I took creative liberties and mildly changed the makeup. I have teal eyebrows instead of black, and I like the modernity of white hair rather than yellow. And I played with modern textures in the clothing to give it a newer feel. My hat's off to Roy for his incredible oeuvre.
