This week my training is being taken to a whole new level. I am beginning to work on preparing myself, psychologically--not only for the audition line, but for Possible Eventual Stardom... As a sideline to my audition training, I have been working on an art project (in collaboration with the totally awesome JD Beltran!) called "Top 40." I am merging my face with the faces of the artists on the 40 albums that have most influenced me. I will be repackaging the albums, which will contain only a single track, each, sung & recorded by moi. These pix are from the first two albums--click them to enlarge them.
The experience of working on these photos, with JD, allowed me to begin embodying stardom. I had to put my body in the exact same positions as the artists did, often wearing the same makeup, and trying to channel their gestures through my face... It was a deeply moving experience and one that I think has better prepared me to Be The Idol. (Go Mo!!!)
