Mulate's in New Orleans. We are frogs legs, aligator sausage, and chased it down with some local, cold beer. Panorama image.

Mulate’s. The best frog legs in town!

… Not that I am a frog leg enthusiast, or anything. I was ambitiously awaiting my Cajun Sampler plate filled with bits and pieces of fried goodness. Admiring the pillars, beams, checkered tablecloths and spinning ceiling fans that made up the New Orleans restaurant, I decided that the scene would make a GREAT panorama. It…

Yellow Daisies.

I enjoy taking photographs, but I hate the post production. I probably have a million photos (not an exaggeration), but only a fraction of those have I revisited to actually do something with. Well, this is a shot I forgot about. Enjoy :D

Action Enlightened.

Above is a photocopy transfer with acrylic medium. I read about this super-cool technique and was fascinated. I cut up a few images from some old photocopied readings from college, and attempted the transfer onto a small canvas board covered in acrylic color. I absolutely love what resulted. Everything just came together perfectly. This is…

Blue and Red Tree.

I’ve come to find that representing nature is challenging — I never seem to get the curves, stems, and connectivity of branches just right. Try and try again, what I produce is just not like the plant right in front of me. I decided that I would just create my own tree. It’s a bit…

Funky Ostrich.

One of my most recent sketches. A representation of THIS NatGeo image. I was impressed by the ostrich’s outrageous expression and had to sketch it.

Creation-Train

Although it’s been a rainy start to summer, there has been no lack of inspiration. I have been riding a creation-train since the beginning of spring — hence my lack of posts. I began with some sketching, then moved onto paints and mediums. I spent some time playing with fabric construction on canvas, then experimented…

The Doctor.

The other day, a co-worker of mine was taking a poll, asking the question: “If you could have any super-power, what would it be?” Ensued was a conversation about what actually qualifies as a ‘super-power’. I considered the usual: the ability to fly, to teleport, to read the minds of others, to have eternal life,…

Janis.

I have been holding off on posting this quick-sketch for some time… One night, more than a month ago, I was looking for a subject to sketch, browsing the internet for someone with an interesting story and an interesting face. It was one of those times, slightly without inspiration, aimlessly and mindlessly looking for a…

Photography for Sale!

Hello — long time no… post! As the result of a series of circumstances, I took a short posting hiatus… I went on a small vacation with family, I fell ill with the most horrible end-of-winter sickness, and — you know — some times you just have to hibernate to rejuvenate. I haven’t been creativity-free,…

Mary.

Above is a representation of my friend Mary from college. I worked from a portrait I took of her for an assignment for photography class a year or so ago. She was one of my favorite subjects to photograph. Mary is a bubbly girl who grew up in Kenya, who often wore traditional African dress.…

Seed of Insight.

This image just kind of happened. I wanted to work on facial contour and simple shading… But then I planted a sunflower in her head: how one seed of an idea can grow into something beautiful.

A Bit of Drawing.

I have been creating in small amounts lately. I picked up my pencils for the first time in a long time when I drew myself earlier this month. After resigning these instruments to a long hibernation, I wasn’t quite sure how I would handle them again. I never really liked drawing in the first place,…
