The Return

The climactic return of the butterflies. Ben Eisenstat, an illustrator himself, was the model. Ben is the father of my SJSU colleague, Bunny Carter.

When we we're shooting the reference, I explained to Ben what was happening in the story, got ready to shoot, and as soon as I said okay, he took the most perfect pose I ever could have hoped for!

That's the nice thing about using another illustrator as a model: they know what you're looking for!
