Everything is a hidden self portrait.
It’s easier to share everything when the face looks nothing like you,
when you are a man and the painting is a woman.
I asked a few of the models I have worked with if they could write a few words of what their experience working with me has been like,
here is what some of them have had to say.
“I think TJ is an extremely talented artist and I was flattered to be asked to be one of his models. I felt very comfortable even though I don’t know him all that well at the time. So thank you for that. That was my first time ‘posing nude’ and I wouldn’t hesitate to do it again. “
“from what I remember, TJ has good patience. In the process of taking photos, he could easily explain what was good and what we could do to improve the pictures. TJ has this professional twist that not a lot of young man have. Meaning, he works with nude images and that’s a private thing, these days you can see people sending picture on the web and next thing you know, this image spreads like aids and someones life is ruined. I’d say TJ has that discretion and professional side to him, and thats really good for up coming models-collabs.
I don’t considerate myself has a model but for your project I felt that way. It’s an experience that ill probably only live once in my life and I was happy to meet you as an artist as well as a human with a good conscience.
Thats sums it up for me. “
I dunno what to say.. I didn’t really model for you… I wish I did.. never really got shit on the go… I could just tell people how rad you are.. i’ll try and think of something..
