Michelle: Marico and I were definitely on the same wavelength this past week, sharing rather dark thoughts about "dolls" and "suburban dystopia" via emails. My goal with the eyes was to make them doll-like, but still human, and what you see above is a combination of real face-paint and stroke-work in Photoshop. Marico did some fabulous solo images like the ones you see above, and in the end, we decided to combine three of her images into one. I think the result is quite eerie, as we'd hoped. We also have alternate combinations in which I'm posed similarly to her, but on a bed. We liked quite a few of these combinations, but in the end, the pairing above won out.
