02/15/2005: "Portrait of a Mallman."

brianm5eyes (59k image)

This is graphic designer and illustrator Brian Mallman. His brother is Minneapolis rock star Mark Mallman...

Back in September, Mark performed a 52.4 hour long song. Live. That is not a typo! You can read about it on his site. Today, I have a special treat for you, my loyal readers. Well, I don't have the 52 hour song for you to download because, well, that would take a while now wouldn't it. I do have a demo of an unreleased song of Mark's called "The Job" though. Click here to download The Job. (edited. Oops! You had your chance. Here's a different song. CLICK HERE.)

camera: Canon 10D
lighting: Speedotron head with 20" reflector covered with a Xenophone Diffuser on the right and a Speedotron head with a 10 grid spot on the left. I used the grid on the left because I didn't want any light to spill onto Brian's hand so it would go a dark on one side and give the face more impact.

I think its cool how when you try to comment on the latest photo (above, that sexy lady one) it sends you to the silly photo of your crew, Brooks. Its like a little game of "smack hands" where you try to click really fast and it hurries and changes before you can hit "post comment"

whew, I've had my exercise for the year.

Woh! That was trippy! I fixed it. It seems that you have to close those pesky tags for them to work properly. :-)
