The Lost Hawaii Tapes Part #4

Hawaii Tapes Part #4 is live now at girlskissing.co.uk.

This is long-lost footage from our journey taking porn stars to paradise. In this scene we see porn stars Cris Taliana and Violet Blue (aka Noname Jane) braving the rocks to kiss in the crashing waves. It was very slippery, but worth the effort.

The best shot in this sequence was used as the cover for the recent Girls Kissing book.
See earlier for an in-depth look at how the book cover was made.

The Lost Hawaii Tapes Part #3

Hawaii Tapes Part #3 is live now at GKUK.

This is one of my favourite scenes: Spin the Bottle, with porn stars Jenna Haze, Monique Alexander and Violet Blue (aka Noname Jane).

The girls go wild at a night time pyjama party, drinking booze and dancing to music. The rules of the game were: spin the bottle; kiss the person it points at, then remove an item of clothing. By the end the girls were naked and humping each other on the couch. See the whole thing unfold in all its glorious detail at girlskissing.co.uk

The Lost Hawaii Tapes Part #2

 


Hawaii Tapes Part #2
now up on girlskissing.co.uk. This one features a fairly long scene of porn babes Monique Alexander and Cris Taliana, kissing in the rain. It rained heavily the first two days we were there, so we had to improvise! Back when this was shot (2003) the gorgeous Monique Alexander was pretty much tattoo-free. These days she’s all tattoo-ed up, which – depending on your viewpoint – is either a good or a bad thing. One thing’s for sure though: Monique sure looks different.

The Lost Hawaii Tapes Part #1

I was digging through some old boxes recently and found two Mini DV tapes – both filled with behind-the-scenes footage from Girls Kissing in Hawaii, a shoot I did way back in 2003. At the time I discarded the tapes because, frankly, the cameraman shooting them didn’t know what he was doing and I dismissed their use on the site. Having watched them through recently I’ve now changed my mind – they are a fascinating document of a time when Jenna Haze was in her luscious prime (having just won New Startlet of the Year at the 2003 AVN Awards); the gorgeous and lovely Monique Alexander was tattoo free; porn star Cris Taliana was just starting out in the industry, and Violet Blue (now known as Noname Jane, after a court order from a writer known as Violet Blue) was fresh from winning New Startlet of the Year in 2002. What I’m trying to say is: a lot of water has passed under the bridge since this footage was shot, and presenting it on girlskissing.co.uk in its uncut form is both interesting and slightly embarrassing for myself personally. I look at it and see a lack of control (it was hard to stop the girls talking for long enough to kiss), but also a lot of spontaneity and personal insights. It’s definitely worth watching.

The Lost Hawaii Tapes – Part #1 has just gone live on girlskissing.co.uk.
The rest will follow over the course of the remainder of May.

Making of Girls Kissing Behind-the-Scenes

The Behind-the-Scenes page, as it appears in the book.

The Behind-the-Scenes DPS, as it appears in the book.

One of my favourite layouts in Girls Kissing Volume 1 is the Behind-the-Scenes Double Page Spread (DPS), designed to look like a cluttered pinboard – full of photographs (shown above).

It took a long time, and plenty of experimentation to make it work, though I think it was worth the effort.

Here’s a short sequence of screenshots showing how I made the Behind-the-Scenes spread.

Now buy the book to see this feature in its full, beautifully-printed glory! 🙂

Sapphic Sleeping Beauty

Another look at the illustrations from the new Girls Kissing book, this time the work of Kristina Gehrmann from Germany. Kristina was commissioned to create “Sapphic Sleeping Beauty” an affectionate twist on the classic fairy tale.

Geisha Girls Kissing

I worked with a number of illustrators when putting Girls Kissing Volume 1 together. They were all found online and came from various different countries. What I wanted from each illustrator was a classy ‘painting’, worthy of any leading publication, to punctuate certain points in the book. I was very pleased with the results, and thought that all the illustrations were top notch.

In this post I’ll take a detailed look at one of the illustrations I commissioned –
