Welcome to "Art By Brandon McGill". The majority of my work here is centered around body painting. The process and finished product is truly an escape from who you are. A transformation into a character or an abstract landscape. I'm looking to share that journey with others.

This can be a collaboration, or entirely my vision. I typically work with those comfortable with nudity, and shaving is a must to properly paint the body (Imagine painting a rug versus painting a flat surface). It's doable, but you aren't going to get fine details.

Painting can take anywhere from 3-6 hours (or longer depending on the complexity) with a photo shoot afterward. I typically charge $50 dollars an hour for a body painting, with a minimum session of 3 hours. The cost can go up for complicated pieces, prosthetics, or special events, but I keep things very reasonable. This includes the photography and some edits. If you are looking to do a trade, it has to be a really stellar idea, or you must offer something interesting in return. I use Wolfe, Kryolan, and Ben Nye powders.

Are you interested in being painted? Please contact me for more details and scheduling. I also have a number of models listed in the credits below that may reference my skills/work ethic/etc.
