“The Animal” by Charlie Terrell
Here’s one of several films Charlie directed for Nine Inch Nails
I am an artist from a small town in Alabama. I have no formal training. My portraits are a combination of photography and digital painting. My work is a mixture of all the artists I like. I take on the creation of my images like a playwright and director. I chose an actor, design the scene and then begin the performance. When the shoot is over I hand paint the final photo to completion. I am fascinated with the female form and the world of plants and insects.
