Happy Halloween!  In light of the news that our little clan has grown, we decided to highlight the fact that our newest spooky boy, Franklyn, is an absolute demon.  The photo was shot in 5 parts; Franklyn, Charles, the shadow, us (the humans) and then a nice plate of the background.  I've also always wanted a moon globe strobe attachment, so I decided to make one using a white acrylic dome from Amazon and a speeding.  That was our main light source, with a large softbox filling in the shadows.  For the shadow @abracatrena made a cutout and then we lit it using a bare head.  It was a night filled magical spookiness with my favorite collaborators in the world.  So happy Halloween and be nice to all those black cats out there.

@aspictures Genius.

Sunday get to work day.  Two sides of the same coins planning two completely different things but using all the same resources.  I'm doing some moulding work and building a new cathouse.  @abracatrena is busy planning and making all her Halloween costume commissions.  What are your Sunday #gettowork plans?

What a photo!  It's beautiful, the light on the porch (lighting up the house number, thank you), the expressions, the wonderful performance from the equally wonderful @curtisleejamie , those crazy tricker treaters, the shape in the back, everything, literally everything in this photo is incredible. @aspictures proves time and time again that he is a master of orchestration (a maestro?) and @micheleromeronyc continues to push the boundaries of editorial imagery.  Thanks again to the team, @abracatrena @addbacon @vatotrollo @skippeterson @highlandhickory, you are the most talented people working in Art today.

@aspictures Dude...

This is the entryway to a house that didn't exist before I received a very simple text message.  @luvlouella texts on a Friday Hey Anthony! Hope all is well. Are you available for an EW cover shoot on Monday 17th?. Here is the challenge of being a Set Designer in the modern age.  It's Friday and you need to not only build a porch and the front of the house in about 48 hours, but you also need all the plants, backgrounds and props that go with it.  And when @aspictures is shooting and @micheleromeronyc is at the helm of the magazine, you know there are going to be brilliant suggestions and ideas along the way.  So how can we do this as quickly as possible while also staying within the confines of an editorial budget?  Steeldeck, flats, reclaimed door, window and shutters, off-the-shelf siding, lattice and columns from the big box store and some very talented and dedicated help.  @abracatrena is there to make sure I don't forget the little things and carve kick-ass pumpkins, @vatotrollo to age that porch so it looks like a goddamn renaissance painting (real quote), @highlandhickory and @skippeterson for making sure the entire thing doesn't fall apart AND working extremely hard over the weekend, and finally @addbacon for being a wealth of resources, knowledge and support and for continuing with day even though the bacon-mobile was attacked by another car.  These BTS photos were taken by @skippeterson and show how we assembled this beautiful exterior, final photo coming soon.

@aspictures @abracatrena From the roomie...

@aspictures But seriously folks... thank you. You killed it.

This is Franklyn.  He is a tiny little man and has decided to come live in our house.  So far, he's been a very good houseguest and his new big brother Charles has graciously welcomed him into the fray.  He's not very big, but if his ears are any indication, he will grow into a handsome and welcomed addition to the chaos of our lives.  Welcome home, Franklyn, we are happy and excited to have you.

Today is the birthday of @abracatrena.  If you don't know her, you are truly missing out on something special.  It is rare to find such raw talent and passion wrapped up in one person.  I love her, I need her and she makes my life so very special.  So say a special happy birthday to this beauty and remind her of how incredibly she truly is.  Happy birthday darling!

Happy Holidays everyone.  This has been a spectacular year, filled with creation and surprises and newfound friendships.

This is our Christmas card image, which was done in the midst of wrapping 3 jobs and preparing for our first Christmas in Los Angeles (AND TOGETHER!). I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and have an even happier New Year.

Here's to @entertainmentweekly (really @micheleromeronyc ) for giving me the great pleasure of working with the always fabulous @aspictures for their holiday season kick off issue with @therock!  Was it fun?  Yes.  Was it fast paced?  Incredibly so.  Was there a Santa Claus suit without arms?  You know it.  Incredible feats of strength and vigor?  Absolutely.  The wonderful @sunny16productions was the literal definition of the best before, during and after as was my kick-ass crew, @abracatrena, @scottstonedesign, @sammyprimero, @highlandhickory, @nightshade_market and (an extra special shout-out to the present wrapper extraordinaire) @ravenbird3.

Check out this issue with the LifeVR app for special videos we made during the shoot, including an awesome confetti blasting Xmas tree with a very special angel on top.

@aspictures Well this is frankly stunning. Who lit this? Seriously. Gorgeous.

@aspictures And @abracatrena needs a MAY JUR shout out, which will come tonight.

Happy Halloween, Instagram.  I hope you all have a group of wonderful wierdos in your life to do fun things with.  My group consists of my beautiful girlfriend, @abracatrena and our tiny cat, Charles.  She had to buy this mask from @target to take her final form. She made that dress specifically for this shoot.  Charles is a trooper, he only cried a few times.

@aspictures Yes, please.
