November's Glow is out already, our third issue with the new redesign and I'm just having more and more fun with the design. I tracked down an ugly monkey at a crazy basement prop house for our style files this issue. We glammed the monkey up with some pearls and I nearly died when I saw what Rodney, the stylist came up with.
I can't believe fall is upon us, this past weekend was perfect for staying in with some hot soup and reading a magazine. Glow's October issue is on news stand now and you'll have to check out the fun hair dye story I designed. We found the best glove and applicator in box dyes and dissect how bronde and baby lights. In the style section, Rei Breidis styled a mountain of boots and I had so much fun sourcing little climbing people and cutting them out.
I've been really busy at Glow, we did a major redesign for our September issue. It is now jam packed with entry points, livened it up with punchy colours and injected a whole lotta fun. Not one section went amiss and I must say, I'm really proud of what the team has pulled together. The magazine is sitting on top of my coffee table and I can't help but flip through it every once in a while, it's just so so pretty. And as always, I had so many talented photographers, stylists and editors help put my dream pages together.
Glow's summer issue is out and we show off our second photoshoot in Tahiti. This issue I flexed my illustration muscles again on men's beauty products and Like A Boss. For the fragrance feature, How Sweet It Is, we featured perfumes with cake notes and so I was excited to have Nadia and Co. on board. She made cakes that were shaped like the perfume bottles! And we took a more graphic approach with the food photography with Andrew Grinton this issue.
3 years ago, I joined the Glow team to put out the 2012 May issue, how fast time flies. This issue I put my collage skills to work and made a collage for Silver Streak, celebrating how the fashion and beauty industries are spotlighting women in their 50s plus category. The other collage was for Bold Face, celebrating Maybelline's 100th anniversary. Cheers to another 3 more years working with very talented photographers, stylists and an amazing team that allows me to be as creative as I want.
Glow's second annual global beauty issue is out and Grace Mahary looks stunning on our cover! This issue we shot butter chicken shepherd's pie with Angus Fergusson, it's topped with mashed cauliflower! It's so delicious, I had 2 of them on set and it's now an office favourite. And after 2 years of pitching to use Christine Kim's paper collages for a story, we finally collaborated for our spring trend report. The combination of her watercolour illustrations and paper cut outs made this piece a stunner! And lastly we show you how to deal with your anger and highlight some notorious celebrities and their angry past.
Two years ago, we redesigned Glow and launched the May 2012 issue. It's crazy how time flies. May's issue will hit news stand soon, go get yours at Shoppers Drug Mart! This issue we shot at Madonna's gym, Hard Candy with Peter Tamlin, got messy on set spilling Vietnamese coffee with Andrew Grinton and bought the most beautiful flowers and Algae for our BIotherm shoot with Natasha V.
April's Glow is out and Shu Pei is on the cover! How refreshing is it to see an Asian model on a cover. This issue I worked with the very talented Rodney Smith again to create flowers out of makeup for our story on blushes. Peter Tamlin shot our fitness shoot and at the risk of sounding like I'm bragging, I do think we shoot the prettiest workout shots.
