I’ve got two photoshoots to share with you today!

First, perhaps you have seen Basil Farrow’s father, Ronan Farrow, in the news recently. We’re excited to watch his daily talk show, premiering Feb 24th on MSNBC.

Our Scottish Fold baby rolled upside-down to get the word out on Ronan Farrow Daily. The program highlights youth activism and international issues, and encourages viewers to engage.

More photos of Basil Farrow below, but for now, we’ll hope you tune in to his dad’s daily TV show starting Feb 24, 1pm ET, on MSNBC.

Now, it’s my turn. While in Tokyo, I did a street style photoshoot with Tokyo photographer, Ray Kuchinawa (蛇-kuchinawa). He also organizes the alternative club night, Heavy Pop, where Yukiro has performed his drag queen act.

Ray’s fashion photography is seen in many leading magazines. He’s a lot of fun to work with, and has a knack for finding the light.

I had my makeup and hair done by a professional Japanese artist who works with Visual Kei bands. He gave me the “droopy eyes” look currently popular among gyaru — the sleepy effect is supposed to be youthful and cute.

It only took us about 15 minutes to shoot these street snaps around a Tokyo neighborhood.

Now, back to Basil Farrow’s dad. I made this sign for him to pose with, and he rolled right on his back to be extra cute!

The info’s right beneath the paw. There are also updates on the Ronan Farrow Daily show’s Facebook.

Whenever it’s sunny out, Basil has a big smile on his face.

His grandpa recently got him a scarf from Edinburgh, to celebrate his Scottish ancestry. I think it suits him well.

Basil is so confident and sweet that he’ll roll onto his back, and let you rub his belly.
