Every now and then some one comes to me and says hey, if you could do anything you want for a shoot what would you do. Now this shoot wasn't exactly that, but pretty close. My friends over at Radii and I have been talking about working together for a bit and i'll be honest with you all I've been in super nerd and comic book mode. I'll admit that earlier in the month I went to comic con and that totally shifts the coolguy/geek scale way off balance.

In a strange way one of my favorite bands Rocket from the Crypt kinda helped inspire this shoot as well, its hard to explain how and why, if you're into them, you'd probably get it, if not, then you should go dust off your record player and figure it out, you'd be doing your ears a favor. I had a ton of inspirations Going back to the comic thing, for the snake gal, I used Mystique from the Xmen movies as a big inspiration and for the cheetah gal, I really have to admit it was one of those boyhood fantasies to basically make her a real life Cheetara from the Thundercats and of course my favorite and the first rendition of
Catwoman, the 1960's Julie Newmar one.

I'm sure some people out there might be bummed about me going a little out there on this one, but to quote one of the greatest movies ever, Spinal Tap,

Ian Faith: They're not gonna release the album... because they have decided that the cover is sexist.
Nigel Tufnel: Well, so what? What's wrong with bein' sexy?
