Fall 2009 NUDE and an Adams Family team-up!

Hopefully on stands around November 15, will be the New Fall 2009 issue of NUDE. This issue will not have an individual cover model feature, but a retrospective of all the past cover models, shot by publisher/photographer, Carrie Leigh.

One of the winners of Carrie Leigh's NUDE Magazine's 2nd annual photo contest, John Tisbury, is also featured in this issue. (Photographers, don't forget to enter the 3rd Annual Carrie Leigh's NUDE Magazine photography contest)

A feature I am waiting to see is Veronika Kotlajic. The article is called "The Accidental Muse", and she has and amazing book called "The Muse". All appropriate titles to describe Veronika. I cannot think of another living model who has inspired more artists and photographers today. The only thing I think this feature will not include, is the inspired works of illustrators of Veronika, so I am going to recommend check out her book as well, "The MUSE"

Lots of other great work by great photographers and artists will also pack this issue. Even me! Don't miss it.. You can pre order this issue and (in the USA) get the issue to your door for $9.95.. That is two dollars cheaper than news stand and includes shipping.... Get them before they sell out.. and they do that.. sell out.

Adams Family Team up!

A week ago, my father, Neal Adams, came out to Los Angeles on a business trip and to visit. While visiting, my father went though some of the many unfinished drawings I had strewn all over the place. He pick one out and asked if he could ink it. To those who do not know who Neal is, he is consideder a legend in the comic book industry. One of the best. The whole father thing aside, as a bit of a comic book nerd myself, how cool is it to have Neal Adams in a piece of mine? So ofcourse I said yes. Well, one thing led to another and he inked four really nice pieces. My original intent was to sell these pieces, but I am still spending lots of time staring at them. Maybe when it has worn off I will make them available.
