Something for Molly's pocket

Brace yourself for a long story...

So, as I said before, Ned and I got super busy for about a month, shooting lookbooks and other projects like crazy. it was a lot of work and a lot of fun...

One of those projects was a top secret hush hush shoot we did for a new TV show called Elementary, which is a modern Sherlock Holms story. The episod hasn't aired yet, so I can't give too many details, but we shot something that's going to be in a book that will be used as a prop in a scene.

As said, can't tell the whole plot, but basically, they needed a series of images of different woman looking glamourous, sexy, beautiful and strong. We had to cast the whole thing and find time to shoot it within a week and get the images to them super shortly afterwards. We found a bunch of friend-models that were brave enough to be shot in sexy underwear for TV and got to work...

I'm really happy with the shoot, and decided to use the images as reference for a little illustrated book for Molly's pocket.

I had quite a few leftover prints from attempts to align the pages, and so I painted them with watercolor and add one to Molly's book.
