Caitlin FitzGerald by MaxTegman
Caitlin FitzGerald

Caitlin FitzGerald

Caitlin FitzGerald (5' 10" (1,78 m) born 1982 or 1983) is an American actress and filmmaker. She currently stars in the Showtime television drama Masters of Sex.

FitzGerald was raised in Camden, Maine. Her father, Des FitzGerald, is the former CEO of the multinational corporation ContiGroup and the founder of Ducktrap River Fish Farm Inc. Her mother, Pam Allen, is the author of Knitting for Dummies and the founder of the yarn company Quince & Co. FitzGerald's younger brother, Ryan, is a Yale University graduate with a master's degree in environmental management. Her parents divorced when she was a child. She has two half-brothers, Alexander and Cooper, as a result of her father's subsequent marriage to actress Lucinda Ziesing. Her paternal grandfather, Desmond FitzGerald, was the deputy director of the CIA during the Kennedy administration. Her aunt is Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Frances FitzGerald.

Fitzgerald first developed an interest in acting as a child and performed in many community theatre and school productions. She was a boarding student at Concord Academy in Massachusetts. She later graduated from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, where she studied drama at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting. FitzGerald also spent time studying Shakespeare at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London.

FitzGerald has appeared in Love Simple, It's Complicated, Gossip Girl (TV), Whit Stillman's Damsels in Distress, and Newlyweds.

In 2010, FitzGerald starred in an off-Broadway production of Hedda Gabler. The play was performed in a private house to an audience of just twenty-five people. FitzGerald was excited to play "the greatest part written for a woman that isn’t Shakespeare". Ben Brantley of The New York Times said of her performance: "All legs, eyes and cheekbones, with a face that seems made for cinematic close-ups, she’s a hypnotic pleasure to look at." However, he felt she had insufficient gravitas, often bringing to mind "a newly transferred, intimidatingly classy high school senior, perhaps, who is so beyond being merely popular".

In 2012, FitzGerald starred in and co-wrote the screenplay for the independent film Like the Water, set in Maine. The film focuses on the death of a childhood friend, inspired by the sudden death of FitzGerald's Riley School classmate Sabrina Seelig. She also co-starred that year in The Fitzgerald Family Christmas, reuniting with director Ed Burns.

FitzGerald is currently starring in the Showtime period drama Masters of Sex. Indiewire has described her character as one of the most underrated in television: "Libby Masters is a character who could easily have come across as insipid instead of likable and poignant ... FitzGerald fully conveys Libby's willowy fragility, her fairly sheltered outlook and girlishness -- she sometimes calls her husband "Daddy"—while making it clear she isn't a simple stand-in for conservative values or cluelessness ... FitzGerald makes Libby's perceptiveness and her transparency clear."

She will next appear in the indie comedy Brother’s Keeper from director Ross Katz. She will star as Kat, the girlfriend of Nick Kroll who dumps him after his tech startup fails and he moves back to his family home. Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale will co-star.

Hi, My name is Max Tegman (a.k.a. ZeroArt) and I´m a retouch artist.

I am often asked how I make my pictures.

My pictures are not drawings or paintings, it´s a photographs... Or rather it was photographs when I started and ended with "Retouched Digital Art" when I´m done. It is made with Photoshop from a photo. I use a variety of techniques, and all of them are my own. The story of how I do them is long, but it started when I saw a movie poster from the '80s which I think was done with airbrush (Blade Runner, one of my favorite movies) and wished I could make such pictures too, but how?

I tried maybe not thousands, but rather hundreds of different techniques. First, I search the Internet with a fine-tooth comb for all Photoshop tutorials I could find on the subject, but none of them gave the desired result, soft movie poster look. So I started developing my own techniques, a bunch of more or less failed attempts later... and I still try every day... it's goes a little bit better and better for everyday, and I are constantly developing new techniques.

Each portrait takes between two to six hours to complete. If the portrait had not been completed in six hours, I threw it away, and start all over from scratch again.

Although I didn't become the new John Alvin or Drew Struzan and make cool movie posters, I became pretty good at doing portraits in the trial process and now I almost dare to believe that maybe one day being able to make a living of my hobby. But I can't explain it more than that. What you see is my handicraft, and people usually get pissed off when there is no simple solution to it, because there is none and I haven't written a tutorial and I never will do that either.

A very wise person said that everything is about three important things: time, effort and patience. I could not think of a better, shorter and more precise answer myself. I've done about a thousand portraits, and it is is only now I'm starting to feel comfortable with the task. But if you thought it was a drawing or painting, then I feel honored, because when I first started, the idea was that it is should either look painted, drawn or done with airbrush, everything in Drew Struzan and John Alvin's spirit (May John Alvin rest in peace.). Hope you like the results.

If you wish, you can watch a full screen slideshow with my portrait wallpapers.
