The Lisbeth Salander for Fiasco editorial is moody and moving.
Inspired by the protagonist of Stieg Larsson's 'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,' Lavelle fashioned the editorial to mimic the attitude of Lisbeth Salander. The character is an extreme introvert, angst, powerful and violent in nature. The chaotic anger of the character is felt through the array of technical elements Lavelle infuses into his work. The model is often seen in waspy movement, or holding a fierce glare.
As the magazine's site states, "FIASCO is a monthly print and digital unisex Fashion, Arts and Lifestyle magazine. The magazine features new and existing talent, fashion, reviews, interviews, art and illustration." The Blood, Sweat and Tears Issue fuses the sheer power of the girl with the dragon tattoo, and the overwhelming talent of Thomas Lavelle.
