Vex Headroom

How many of you guys remember Max Headroom?
This vid which I entitled Vex Headroom was certainly inspired by him for my 80’s show. It seemed like only 50% of people knew who he was.

This was fun! I painted Ulorin Vex’s face and shoulders and stood her in front of my living room TV set which was displaying all these crazy colors that I made on my smart phone. I quickly made a copy edit on final cut. Then I painted the rest of her while I encoded this footage on DVD.

It was to be playing on my TV wall while she stood in front of it during the final photoshoot.

She is a futuristic operating system that helps users with pretty much any of the little things so they don’t have to do much at all.

Alien Girl in Cali

13 year old Acrobat & Contortionist Georgia Bryan and body paint artist Paul Roustan combine forces and share their passions with the humans of Santa Monica, California.

Roustan paints Georgia as an otherworldly creature and she goes on a voyage through the iconic coastal city.

Having studied contortion for the past six years, performing is one of Georgia’s favorite things. She says, “Everytime I get on stage I literally can’t stop smiling. It feels like my cheeks are being sprained.”

Roustan, a body painter for over 10 years, is having a solo art show of his work in Hermosa Beach on February 3, 2018.
