Last month I photographed a young Chicago designer, Malachi Artese summer 2011 eyewear line. The look book was modeled after and inspired by an editorial I shot in May that was featured in July’s 2011 debut Issue of Nasty Magazine. However I did not just want to recreate my past concepts to the tee so I was all about trying out different techniques to give his designs an ultra modern, futuristic edge. I definitely worked my butt off on theses.
