I feel pretty good about it. E feel better if I was drawing the stranger from memory. Wait, that doesn't make any sense of past life. E could have known them is getting freaky. I love how deeper getting so quickly You already know this person when you go from here. Alright, so here's how it works. The stranger can't see our screens. We can't see each other screens. So the only way we know what to draw is by what the stranger tells us. And if you're playing along at home, be sure to post your drawing and tag us on Twitter and Instagram at that drop show. That's ready. Ready? Yeah. Okay. So let's welcome our stranger for today, Stranger. Can you introduce yourself? Hi. I'm Vanessa. Hi. Hi, Vanessa. Where you joining us from? I am from Boston, Massachusetts, but you don't have a Boston accent, and not everyone from Boston has a Boston accent. I fully expect to hear a Boston accent. So e, I have one. When I get really angry, but I'm happy right now. So angry. How did you come to be on the show today? I watched the show religiously. I actually just watched the most recent episode. I've been following you guys on Instagram so that you guys were applying for a new stranger. I applied and I got accepted. And here I am. Okay. Congratulations. Thank you. I'm really excited to be here. So, Vanessa, you have never met any of us before. So there's no way we know what you look like, right? Correct. I've never met any of you. All right, folks. Ready? Thio, Get drawn. Yes, In true Jason form. I already forgot. Your name is Vanessa. I'm like Stephanie. Can you? Oh, it's not Stephanie E. Vanessa. Before we start, could you tell us what your pronouns are? And also your ethnicity? I go by she her and I am half Portuguese and half Lebanese. Very cool. Right down the middle. Were you born and raised in Boston or outside Boston? I should say I waas. I am first generation American. What do you do in your free time? I am actually a professional body painter. I do that both as a job and as a hobby that it's so cool. That's cool. How did you get into that? I went to school for theater and I took a stage makeup course, and it kind of dived me into, I guess, the art of makeup itself. Shortly after college, I decided that I wanted to dive in more, and I got a job at a professional theater as a hair makeup person, and I started learning prosthetics. I started in my free time when I wasn't working at the theater to teach myself how to pretty much body paint past the face and the neck. And then I started to experiment on other people, and I've been doing it now for about seven years. Wow, I love that you just kind of went from, like, one small part of your body and you just, like, transformed. Exactly. I transformed all of that caterpillar into a butterfly. E. Vanessa, you sound very chill. Are you? Are you generally a very chill person? I am. I'm a very chill person. That's actually what my friends would say. I always say, Oh, it's just the Gemini and me and I feel like Japanese always get Ah, bad rep, But we're pretty outgoing. And now chill people. All right, Some of my best friends are Geminis, which is weird because I'm a cancer. But even though that's a good thing, is it? Yeah. My husband is a Gemini. What are you if I may ask, I'm a cancer. So it's funny that Kevin says that he's a cancer and a lot of his friends were Geminis. I feel like I have the same thing. I'm a mystery. You're not gonna tell me? Thanks in. No, Let's take bets on what he is. Uh, a alone trying Capricorn. Really? E good work. What is your favorite part of your face? I would say my eyes, They are almond shaped. They're like traditional. What? Middle Eastern? I guess features would be in Middle Eastern women. I get lots of compliments on them. Any time someone meets me, they noticed my eyes right away. That's very helpful. Thank you. I'm not gonna lie. I'm struggling right now. Friends, I've made some choices, but I'm not confident in them. I've always been struggling. E what do you usually like? Paint like? What are the like? The themes of things you'd make. I've actually lately been doing a Disney theme, so I've been doing like every Disney movie I just did back to the future theme because it's my favorite movie. It's one of mine, too, I think. A good choice. See, Jason, we have something in Yeah, it is a perfect trilogy. There's no trilogy better than I don't know back to the future. Three is pretty weak is pretty weak. Western. The doc gets to fall in love car. No way could talk about this later. What's the last thing you body painted on yourself? Good question. I did a body painting piece on Toy Story. A lot of movie themed body painting. I think it's what people like to see. Whereas if I do a creation of my own, I find that people aren't as impressed. I don't know no. Yeah, people like fan art. What's an original piece that you were in love with? I did a piece where I did a bunch of like, different butterflies because that's what Vanessa means. It's a symbol that I just absolutely love. Do you have a favorite color? I dio it's teal blue. Love that. Okay, is the fad color of the nineties. I'm a nineties baby. Alright, alright, I'm digging. What? I have going so far. I'm pretty happy I'm doing all right. I moved on to thinking Wow, Jason, You know also I am I like the form of what I've made so far. Do you have any piercings or tattoos? I do. I have a nose piercing. I also have my ears pierced and I do have a lot of tattoos. Oh, my goodness. I think I have 10 tattoos on my arms. Oh, wow. Okay, so you take this whole, like drawing on your body things very seriously. To me, it's not just a job. That's why I kind of do it in my free time as well. It's very relaxing. It's what I do when I'm upset. Happy. So if you had a bad day at work, you just come home and you just bust out the paints and you just started going to town, like on your shoulders and stuff. Yep. Exactly exactly what you just said in those movements to just throwing the paint everywhere. God, just remarks way should be at least halfway through at this point. Oh, my God, I'm exactly moving into thinking now I'm just writing her name and then I'm gonna start E Valerie. I wrote it. I think I spelled it right. You said earlier that you have a nose piercing? Yes. Can you describe your nose piercing to me? Yeah. I wear a hoop and it's on my right nostril. And I usually wear a black. Who? Black hoop. Well, that's easy. So, Vanessa, you were telling us about the butterfly by painting that you did. What was the general vibe like was the color scheme? It was monarch butterflies because monarch butterflies are my absolute favorite butterfly. One tattooed on my back. Okay? And it was a bunch of them, I believe, about four or five of them on my chest. And it was a orange yellowy background. And then on my face, I had just neutral makeup. Other than the eyes, the eyes itself was like orange yellow. I always match my eye shadow with the actual body paint itself. And then I had a flower crown. Got flower crown. I did. Oh, boy. Okay, alright. How much of that? I could dio try my best. What? The tattoos on your arm of? I think you might be proud of one of them. Ooh, is it back to the future? Related it? Is it? It's brand new. I have a massive DeLorean tattooed on my right arm. Cool. Oh, that's cool. I'm not gonna draw. That s so happy. E just got it. It was 11 hour session, and it's not done because we still have to add lightning. The tattoos not done without the lightning. That's how Marty goes back to the future from 1955 to 1985. So I'm aware I've seen the movies. Just making sure. I mean, you were kind of saying you didn't like the trilogy before. I just didn't like the third one. Third 10 my God, of all the things to draw drawing a DeLorean and it's stressing me out Good. I think it's best up my tattoo artist to You know what? I'm just going to draw a choo choo train s. You said you wore a crown when you did the monarch butterfly body paint. I did. It's like a yellow crown. Kind of like one of those seventies cute little crowns that just goes around your head. I thought it was like a little halo, but like your forehead level? Yeah. Okay. Got you. I don't know how close you are, Jason, but I'm just gonna do that detail that I'm gonna be done. I'm ready when you are. I'm just gonna keep touching it until you say it's done. Alright. Don't you that? Don't do that. I'm gonna keep drawing. Okay? Take two. I'm gonna keep drawing until you say it's done. Friends depends down way. Think we did? I feel really good. I really loved the challenge of drawing somebody without knowing what they look like. It was really rewarding. I think I did. Okay. Does it look like her? I don't think so, but I think I think it looks like the spirit of her. I tried to capture a lot of the things she talked about. I like what I drew, though, so I'm pretty. I'm pretty comfortable with it. I tried to capture her. Her chill nous in attitude and pose. And then I screwed it all up by trying to do some body painting. So we'll see. I think they're all gonna come out. Amazing. Oh, thank you. All right, Well, let's send them to each other. All right? Awesome. Oh, thes air. Beautiful. You're going to see that you guys actually did an amazing job. Jason, I absolutely love how you incorporated paint everywhere in my hair, I actually have a lot of hair, so this is absolutely breathtaking. I also love how the pain is just everywhere. You great, Kevin, this actually looks a lot like me.
