'small breaths'

Another mandane morning made intriguing by an iPhone app. This simple yet thought provoking picture was shot sitting on a city bus tranversing to school. Quadcamera uses the device's camera to create multiple images taken moments apart from each other. Similar to the normal iPhone camera, the user sees a single image on the screen, but QuadCamera takes a handful of shots spaced by adjustable time intervals. You can also choose between four and eight serial shots that can be oriented in a line or two parallel rows.

The effect is similar to that of Lomography cameras, only in digital form, but complete with soft focus and slightly overexposed edges. Like Lomography does for film, QuadCamera takes the inferior capabilities of the iPhone camera and adds creative tweaks to increase the fun quotient.

Stay creative..

it begins

First paint to hit canvas! (cardboard really.. and it measures a whopping 3'x5' (supersized index card,)) It fits nicely into your pocket flat bed truck. I laid down a dollop of flat interior acrylic paint--a quart to be precise. It now weighs in at 10 pounds, but thats because there's all that moisture. It's residing in my makeshift drying room where I have two spaceheaters blasting volcanic-like heat on my paint bubble. hopefully dry in the morning. keeping finger crossed to stave off major cracking and wrinkles; I'm really not shooting for the my-face-looks-like-a-topology-of-Grand-Canyon-cuz-I-refuse-to-wear-sunblock-90-year-old-ex-career-lifegard-look.....

'limited resources'

The title comes from a lack of normative art supplies i had. I laughed throughout the exercise because the vain challenge I took up as if making some social impact and winning the hearts of Americans through my selfless act of painting, I set fourth a tumultuous task of painting deer. I was at Coffee Bean and I was feeling quite political and smug about my ecological ideology (*don't get me started). I had only but a pen and paper... also, the unexplored resources littering shelves and counters of Coffee Bean (see the bleeding heart analogy and/or metaphor that I so indelicately prodded *hint, We need new solutions and resources to solve the ecological issues we face today i.e. powering cities with renewal energy, recycling, sustainability, and so forth. To make a long story short, I stained the deers with my remaining coffee, a forgotten red pin for the crystal, and the grey was from a wet papertowel to the mucky floor (yuck right?!) Again I laughed, cuz I could almost taste revolution in the air. . .if only I found a small fence post underneath a table; I would have stapled the deer painting to it and marched on Washington.

'number 4.'

Just poking fun at the convictions we hold dear to.

Final conception (draft) of 'the art of getting over.' Next attempt will be the real deal and it will be glorious..
Lacking acrylic paints for the final piece has giving me time to refine my recipe (added a few pinches of strange) ..now it taste just right.

'the art of getting over'

created for Cheryl. So far just sketches, doodles, and brainstorming jotted in my sketchbook but SOON... I just need to pick up some gesso and acrylics. All this will be mashed together in some-sort-of-fashion on a huge piece of cardboard. Oh, and i got one more conceptual piece of this puzzle in progress, then I'll finish Cheryl, promise.

hey, ride bikes

new vintage bike, did the graphics in the middle of the morning after wayyy too much expresso that night; ok ok not so original but Obey vinyl was all I had. Um yes guilty, those strips are just blk elctrical tape and white framing tape. This transformation/beautification  was to cost me nothing--well 4 bucks for the expresso but that was just for a jittery inspiration. Bike was originally a Trek 1200 aluminum (amazing shape) from 1990 with purple and teal retro throwback decals or maybe that was just the 90s' for yah. The white paint has a frost-green hue to it which has great contrast to the white vinyl. I stretched an old American Apparel tanktop over the original seat and added a feather headtube frame art from my jewelry collection. I picked the bike up for 2 hundie booyah! I'm gonna ride the hell out of it.

'cage created'

"You put a big bid in a small cage and it will sing you a song" Patrick Watson from the album Wooden Arms (2009).
I'm gonna watercolor this but my main intention is to recreate this on a larger, say 20x30in, scale.

'interpersonal skills'

watercolor on printer paper, I'm waiting on my sketchbook with cold press paper (it's in the mail). I'm going attempt to glue this with wheat paste into the book. I'll fail, I just know it..

'reaching, almost there'

a little doodle about how we seek a reward at other's cost, ultimately what we seek is but only a trap
