A little coffee for your morning commute.
Body painting: @jessicameleon and Hector Heloz Lopez
Photography: Hector Lopez w/ assistance from Jessica Mellow
Models: Hector Hector Miguel Lopez Jr. and @jessicameleon
I had this idea a couple of years ago. Jessica Mellow and I share a birthday and decided it would be fitting to release this project for our birthday. I knew I wanted Jessica in it, but, only recently decided that I would be the male model and that I would have Jessica paint me. Yes, that is me in the pic! She isn't just a great model but also a very talented painter. It only makes sense to our friendship. If you know us then you know our friendship is based on coffee and body paint!
Nearly every aspect of this pic is in collaboration with Jessica. From assisting me with taking the original photo of the coffee in the cup and the actual image of body paint, to being the one who painted me, and even giving this piece its name.
