Editor @ Large . . . Newton Faulkner shoots for Random Magazine

Having been tossed onto the curb by my cab driver round the corner from the location I was standing by Piccadilly Circus, trying to guard 15 bags of clothes, practically sobbing at how to get my loot over the road, I was rescued by the Random Magazine team who all came trooping round the corner and I breathed a sigh of relief!

The shoot was based on Hindu G-ds and Godesses and so we were going slightly bright and funky, plenty of quirk!
We had a gorgeous extra in the form o
f Roopa the part time model who is really a head and neck surgeon! Who brought with her beautiful saris and exiquisite jewellery, the make up artist - Lauren Baker - and myself definitely wouldn't of minded a dressing up session!

Newton arrived like a bubbly bundle of dreads and it was all stations go!
His personal make  up and hair team set to work, while Lauren began to paint Roopa blue!
Newton was really friendly and told us of his latest exploits! We talked touring, new albums (it's out 28th September), day trips to foreign countries and disguises! (So you know he has a penchant for deer hats and geek glasses!

By the end of the shoot Newton ended up blue too and due to his hairy arms resembled the lead character in Monsters Inc! It was a race against time as he had to flee for a video advert filming in Spain and had to run to Gatwick (well he was taking a car - but you know what I mean!) He left still rather blue but happy! 

And we loved having him! - PS I've heard the new album and it really does rock!
