Making of Mondays Episode 2

This is the second installment in my new series, Making of Mondays. In this episode I am joined by my husband, Patrick Merrick.

We create a surreal, conceptual photograph based on Patrick’s experimental horror short story “Six O’Clock at the Saturn Canal.”

Here’s a quote from the story:

“I dreamt myself as a dream of a thought produced from no core, no seed, wandering through nothing, repeating a single useless bit of expression that was at first a laugh, then a cry of despair, and finally an impassive proclamation of extinction trying to fill the surrounding empty eternities with the infinitesimal speck of itself.”

This is a super fun episode and the image we create is one of my absolute favorites!!

I hope you enjoy watching and look forward to hearing your feedback.

What do you think about the image we created?

Do you have any questions about the process?

Please feel free to comment or send me an email!

If you love this image as much as we do, you can purchase a print here!

Making of Mondays Episode 1

Welcome to the first episode of Making of Mondays!

In this series I will be giving you a window into my creative process by showing you how I make an image from start to finish.

Today we will take a look at how I created the newest installment in my Phantasmagoria series.

As you will see, I shot this image in the living room of my tiny LA apartment with minimal equipment.

I hope this will help you to see that you don’t need anything fancy to make great images.

I also hope it will be just plain fun!

Please let me know what you think, I would love to hear your feedback! :)
