NHL Playoffs 2014 — Face Painting Gallery

nhl_playoffs2014_1-RangersStanleyCupSkyline1_140521_agostinoartsWe did our first event for this year’s Hockey Playoffs at the NHL Store on 6th Ave. at 47th St. in Manhattan. I was there for the pre-game celebration for Game 3 of the NY Rangers vs the Montreal Canadiens at Madison Square Garden, sponsored by Reebok.

I don’t follow this sport, so instead of telling people the story of their faces as I painted I was asking questions —who’s your favorite player? How did you become a fan? — and using those ideas as inspiration.


Drop the puck!

Drop the puck!

Here are a few more from the second event at the NHL Store. I particularly wanted to try this “Drop the puck!” idea if I got someone who wasn’t rooting for either team, but still loved playoff hockey.

Elephant Face Painting Gallery — Run for the Wild at the Bronx Zoo 2013

It’s Earth Day today, and a beautiful morning. We are getting ready for this spring’s Run for the Wild at the Bronx Zoo on April 26, an annual family event in which runners gather early in the morning at the zoo to run and raise funds for all the work that the Wildlife Conservation Society does to preserve the environment around the world. The facepainting will be free for participants in this event, from 7:00 – 9:30 am. The annual Run for the Wild events are great fun and a unique way to enjoy the zoo while helping wildlife. Please come and enjoy a wonderful morning at the zoo!

Each year the Run for the Wild features an iconic animal as “poster child”, and this is the second year to feature the elephant. Elephant populations are currently under direct threat from poaching (65% of the African Forest Elephant population have been killed between 2005 and 2012), and the WCS and other organizations are pushing to protect them both by their efforts in the field and by working to enact laws to ban ivory trading.
