A tattoo by any other name

Tree Tattoo
June 19, 2019

  It’s been a long time since I’ve done any legitimate artwork. So when my sister asked how rusty my skills were, to design a tattoo we’d been talking about getting, I was understandably a bit hesitant. We’ve talked about getting matching tattoos for quite a while, and every time she visits, she jokes about how we should just go down to a local shop and get one. Now, I…

Did I bite off more than I can chew?

Some pretty exciting things are happening… after having not posted anything for over a year. I’m hoping to change that last bit. But I’ve said that before, I know. Starting not quite at the beginning, Phoenix Fan Fusion (that used to be Phoenix Comicon, for those who don’t know – they had to change the name because of legalities) ended a couple of weeks ago, and it seems to have…

LoCreShiMo 2017 – Blessed Virgin Mary

Blessed Virgin
November 24, 2017

We were walking around downtown Monterey at night, and suddenly found ourselves on the wrong side of the street, where the sidewalk suddenly stopped and turned to dirt. Not wanting cross in the middle of the block, we continued down the hill, alongside a very tall wall. It turned out that the wall belonged to San Carlos Cathedral. When we turned the corner at the end of it, we found…

LoCreShiMo 2017 – Ray at the ocean

We took a road trip to Pacific Grove, CA, to spend Thanksgiving with Megan’s brother and his family. Clocking at at almost 12 hours each way, I’m pretty sure it was the most time he’s spent in the car in one go. After eating Thanksgiving dinner, everyone decided to go for a walk down to the beach. The sun was already pretty low when we got there at 4:30, and…

LoCreShiMo 2017 – Doll Cabal

Doll Cabal
November 16, 2017

Keeping in the vein of creepy doll photos, here’s another one from the basement of Hanny’s, in downtown Phoenix. It’s got everything that I used to love taking photos of: Old dolls, chain link fences, any kind of unfinished industrial interior, and basement lighting. Hard to go wrong with any of that. I imagine this as some kind of basement of misfit dolls, where they hide out and extort people…

LoCreShiMo 2017 – Ghost Doll

Ghost Doll
November 15, 2017

It’s been many, many years since I shot my Reverend Bob series, which contained a few creepy doll photos. So when some friends took me to Hanny’s in downtown Phoenix, and showed me this fine memorial in the basement, I couldn’t resist snapping a pic. The story goes that back in the 60’s, a young girl ran off from her parents, and found her way into the stairwell to the…

LoCreShiMo 2017 - Megan
November 9, 2017

I used to do a lot of vector art, where I would take a base photograph, reduce it to just the colors that I wanted to use, and then simplify and tweak the lines as needed. Some pics would take hours, and some would take days. Unfortunately, I don’t really have days to spend on a single image for CreShi, so I had to keep this one fairly simple. I…
