You know, sometimes I'm dumb. I ascribe this mostly to the fact that as the Supreme Overlord of PUG, after 15 years I have gotten to the point that I don't really "work" in the same sense that I used to. I've gone from being the only person in the business, responsible for doing everything, thinking about everything, and anticipating everything, to being the Supervisor of the business, supported by many amazing people who do things, think about things, and…Continue
I’m not a jealous person, usually. I feel like it’s at the top of the list of useless/harmful emotions. But sometimes I get jealous. Today I did. When I do, I feel the most important thing to do is ask myself *why*-
So today, I was on the intertubes and I ran across a blog run by a woman who paints, cooks, sews, etc. She documents her life. And as I was scrolling through her images, I felt it - this weird sinking feeling in my gut. Then I heard it - my inner voice, and it was…Continue
Back in the PUG day, starting around 2006, Masuimi & I would do photo shoots for Pinup Girl. Masuimi has been modeling for the website since 2004, but until 2006 my homie Octavio (NSFW) did most of the shoots for the site, including this famous photo of Masuimi in the original Greta Dress:…Continue
Bloggity blog blog! Yay!
Episode 2 of our new Pinup TV web series has been released! Here we are at Viva Las Vegas 16 acting like goofballs as promised <3
This shot is an outtake from last year's Madonna Inn shoot. I was in the middle of multiple attempts at getting the lighting just right that I wasn't paying attention to what Masuimi was doing - or the fact that one of my lights wasn't firing at all. But Masuimi brings it even when it's just a test <3…Continue
As much as I love being modest, I've got to say: my skin looks damned good for my age (43). I'm going to chalk it up to the daily moisturizing I've been doing since I was 22, as well as to the various peels etc I use.
My younger friends have heard my spiel multiple times: Moisturize! Use sunscreen! Exfoliate! And now, you get to hear it too.
Remember kids, the future is not an urban legend. If you eat right and stay out of trouble, one day you'll get to be old like me too, and…Continue
Over here at PUG HQ, we always joke about all the stories we never get to tell, of the assorted craziness that comes with this job. Whether it's a client, a supplier, a model hopeful, or an artist's agent. Here's a story we feel needs to be told, and we're willing to risk appearing "unprofessional" by telling it.
Many long-time PUG fans and customers understand our policy on models. In short: We are not a model agency, nor do we use one to find our models. We are arbitrary and picky,…Continue
In May, Micheline and I flew out to Tennessee for five days of sightseeing and vintage shopping. While in Memphis, we visited Flashback and were blown away by all the amazing home decor, clothing and more. Check it out:
After we were done…
