I met with some industry last night (more on that soon!) and they reminded me what a great headshot Xanthe Elbrick took of me a while ago, and what a good look it is for today. It’s funny how a strong headshot can capture an essence that may be right for you some time after it was taken; this shot shows the more put-together, professional Joanna that I sometimes need to unleash upon the world.
Xanthe herself is a lovely person, a crushingly good actor, and massively fun to shoot with– check out her work at the link above!

I’m not going to mention what song I’m singing here, because this particular songwriter likes to take things down from Youtube, and while I believe I’m fully covered under cabaret and parody laws, it’d be easier if y’all would just enjoy it without alerting His Squirmy Purpleness. (Musical arrangement by the lovely and talented Alexander Rovang.)
