Last week somebody asked me why I blog. Somebody else suggested that, like all bloggers, it was because I wanted to be famous. I don’t. Or, yeah, sure, it would be nice, but that’s never been my goal. Besides, there are better ways to become famous than blogging. No, my answer was that blogging lets me be creative under my own rules, and it lets me experiment. Every post I make I learn something new, from Photoshop to styling to lighting to writing … The blog is a great way to learn something new or practice what you already know.
So now when Erick, one of my brothers and a super talented animation student, was staying with me for vacations, I saw the perfect opportunity to try something new. For the longest time I’ve wanted to collaborate with him, and when Estée Lauder sent me a bottle with the Sumptuous Extreme Waterproof Mascara inside, I knew what we could do — animated eyelashes swimming on the bottle like fishes.
I’m super happy with our collaboration and how it turned out. It looks cool, no? Hopefully we’ll do more in the future.
