I can barely pass drawing decent-looking stickmen but thank heavens there are talented people like Gigi Rodgers, an owner of an online eyewear shop called Puck’n Khaos, who is also a makeup artist that often turns herself into pop art!
“I was flipping the Internet when I came across Alexa Meade’s artwork, where she transforms people to look like 2D living paintings, at the same time, I was looking at iconic photos of my spirit animal Grace Jones. So naturally, in my head, I thought, ‘I wonder if I can paint myself to look like Grace Jones?'” she told Mashable in an email. Soon, with the help of a friend, she did!
Rodgers does all of the makeup on her own. “I was shocked with the result, I was having fun with this, so I continued [to do it] on my own. I was curious as to how far I could take this and I haven’t stopped since.” she told Mashable.
Of course, turning yourself into living art is time consuming, but Rodgers is nothing but passionate about it. Her average look takes between one and two hours and ultimate goal is to get to the “Kay Pike comic book level” of body painting, a popular Instagram body artist.
