Man, Oh, Man

I feel like I haven’t “seen” much in the past couple of months due to being holed up working on stuff for an art show. That’s been fine and all as I’ve still been able to go out on some individual excursions, but no proper shooting. At least not with the DSLR.

All the stops I’ve made on the side of the road for a picture have been done with either my instant or fisheye film cameras, and those tokens may be a bit more precious than the ones and zeroes generating digital images.

I’m hoping I find a way to reconcile both. I feel they are of equal weight, but in different ways.

Either way, new images have been on deck for a while. I just have to find a bit of a window of time to shut everyone out and lock myself in. Again.

Yay, Photos!

I still have a good batch of 2012 photos I need to get through, so those should be making it up slowly, but surely.

The ol’ Macbook is on its way out, and after a good seven years, I’m surprised it’s not in worse condition. As a result I haven’t been doing much photo editing (and absolutely no sound recording) lately. I’ve already started saving up for a Macbook Pro, so hopefully I can time this guy’s inevitable death with the adoption of the new one. :)

I’ve also been busy getting some artwork done for an upcoming group art show here in Austin, TX. It’s been a lot of sketching and painting, and there may be some images of that going up on this blog and/or my art blog

I even made a stop-motion painting video of one of my pieces for said show. (I may as well use that film degree education of mine for something.)

And a huge thank you to all who have been <3’ing and reblogging photos. I’m glad you’ve found something you like here!

On the Wall, March 2013. I finished the one in the middle, &#8216;Shark&#8217;s Soup,&#8217; and had to hang it to photograph it. It made me happy seeing the three paintings in one spot.
