On September 2, 2018, Paul Roustan painted up two models at the main intersection of Pier Ave and Hermosa Ave in Hermosa Beach, California for Fiesta Hermosa Art Festival.
If I had a zombie apocalypse or aggressive alien attack team,
Kelly Wiglesworth would be my lieutenant Ripley (Sigourney) because she is just the baddest warrior woman that ever did live.
Which is why when she said she wanted to be a shark, I had to make her into this one of a kind war shark.
The only thing tougher than a shark is a machine gun wielding war shark. You better watch yo back!

Went for a look at a cove in Lunada Bay, California and stumbled upon a stunning siren. Luckily, I think she had already caught some prey so she let me hang with her a bit and shoot a couple photos. Happy to say I survived the encounter.

Traditionally, I bring well known characters to San Diego Comic Con because fans love seeing something familiar. But for some reason I couldn’t resist taking a stab at showing my Sparkle Shark.
The reactions were priceless! Everyone LOVED model, Shadia Elise. I heard quite a few unlikely quotes like, “I don’t know who she’s supposed to be, but I love her!” and “Oh, I love that she’s original!”
She could barely walk two feet without being stopped for photos. (would love to find some of those if anyone sees em please tag me)
The highlight of the day was when we decided to crash the Discovery Channel Shark Week booth. As soon as I brought her around, they asked her on stage and she took part in a Telemundo Live broadcast. And what perfect timing for shark week!

Flashback to 80s NYC! Beats and colors pulsed from a curious art gallery showcasing yet to be big artists like Jean Michel Basquiat, Keith Haring, Kenny Scharf.
Legendary graffiti writers Fab Five Freddy, Dondi, Lee Quinones, and Futura 2000 left their marks at this hangout space for graffiti, hip hop, break dancers, and artists of all sorts. The heart of the East Village pumped with exploration, integrity, and just straight up fun! It was pure and the world wanted a piece of it.
