VOGUE Covers / Vintage

Published by cctadmin on July 7th, 2013

__________________________________________________________________________________________VOGUE has captured the imagination of its readers – & the culture at large since it printed its first cover in 1892.  I’ve always been fascinated by the extraordinary images that have reflected, and transformed the world of style.  VOUGE has produced some of the most beautiful, provocative & fashionable covers ever, in my opinion, from early illustrations  to photographs featuring a plethora of elegant models.  Here’s but a few I particularly enjoy….

CC GOES MAD W/ MUTAGENiC STUDiOS DUO TiMOTHY BACON & PAUL GREEN, JULY 8 / 2012

Published by cctadmin on July 9th, 2012

MUTAGENiCS STUDiOS is an Ottawa-based creative team that produces dark and twisted art.  They are comprised of  Owner TiMOTHY BACON, and Partner/Photographer PAUL GREEN, who for the last three decades have worked in broadcast media, interactive media, advertising and branded entertainment as writers and creative directors. They have had numerous screenplays & original television series optioned, and in 2006  formed MUTAGENiC STUDiOS to “explore photography and develop their own art styles that would allow us to go beyond the written word, create unique imagery and push the boundaries of our storytelling.” Their photographic artwork has appeared in the Montreal Mirror, Guerilla Magazine, Rue Morgue Magazine, just to name a few.

Recently this amazing duo launched another exciting project called Babylon Smith: An Illustrated Novel.   To get a sense of the story-telling these imaginative two do, picture if you will, a character by the name of Babylon Smith, a freelance Regulator working the mean streets of the mega-city, struggling to make ends meet.   It’s the stuff of comic book fans dream of and without a doubt you can tell TiMOTHY and PAUL are true fans of this art form.  In every photo I happened to see gracing the walls of M-STUDiOS I could see the dedication in every shot, in every character they dreamed up.

With all of this said – I graciously and very excitedly accepted M-STUDiOS invitation to partake in another project currently on the go, a series of short stories/graphic novels.  This kind of thing really excited me because although I could never claim to be a DiE-HARD COMiC NERD in the truest sense of the title I did grow up very into comics, and the escapism involved in that particular sci-fi sphere.  What appealed to me about comics when I was young was the opportunity to use your imagination to be taken away to another time and place, and it just so happens these guys know how to create these worlds and characters with respect for the genre.  Hence why I had no trouble considering this as a worthwhile project.  I’ll take any opportunity I can to escape my own reality – especially in the hands of TiMOTHY and PAUL.  They gave me a story line and a character to embody – and I took this direction and ran with it.

That said – here are a few photos from this morning when we united at their headquarters, although for any further information on who I play or what this particular story is about, I’m afraid you are gonna have to wait.  Come on, you know you love a little mystery now right?  What I can say is that its gonna come out looking pretty dark, gritty and in short, pretty darn slick if you ask me.

I’ll keep you posted on any developments but in the meantime check out their website for more:

THE PROVOCATiVE BEAUTY of ANJELiCA HUSTON

Published by cctadmin on November 25th, 2011

ANJELiCA HUSTON’S rare beauty lies deeper than her jet black hair or her regal nose; she is a far more complex beauty than most of the young lovelies who now grace our screens. In the ’70s, HUSTON was the ultimate it-girl, dashing from party to party with her famous lover, JACK NiCHOLSON and posing on the cover of VOGUE in HALSTON; today, she is one of the most respected actresses in Hollywood (PRiZZi’S HONOR,THE GRiFTERS, WiTCHES, BUFFALO 66, etc), a subtle, wise, and yes, breathtaking actress. Here are of the most beautiful pictures of ANJELiCA HUSTON, style icon.


“THE GiRL of the SEVENTiES”: MARiSA BERENSON

Published by cctadmin on October 25th, 2011

Iconic model of the late ’60s and ’70s, granddaughter of the brilliant fashion genius  ELSA SCHiAPPARELLi, once coined “the girl of the Seventies” by YVES SAiNT LAURENT, MARiSA BERENSON has to be one of the most exquisite beauties of all time.

Sometimes a woman comes along who embodies the spirit of her time with effortless quality that that defies all words. BERENSON was one of the most captivating woman of her era. Every now and then I go back and visit her there in the land of inspiration from that time -
