Big Pig
November 4, 2017

Continuing with the “refresh my skills for things I used to do” theme, this is a digital manipulation of a photo I took. I used to be active in the online graphic design groups, and we would have weekly challenges to do just this sort of thing. While back then I primarily used Photoshop, this was all done with mobile device tools.

LoCreShiMo 2017, Nov 6

I’m not really that big on kaleidoscope images. I like the actual things, and will lose myself in them for good periods of time, but that’s because they’re dynamic and always changing. Still images don’t really have that magic for me. This one is an exception though, so after how long it took me to get something I liked, I figured I’d use it .

November 2, 2017

Years ago, when cell phone cameras were in their infancy, I started a project I called c3. I would shoot photos on my cell, as-is, with no after effects or photo manipulation. Because the quality and resolution were so terrible, it often produced wonderful images. Now, however, with cell phone cameras having the same resolution of many digital SLRs, it’s harder to get that kind of image without resorting to…

I was involved with an online group for a while, which would have weekly design challenges to motivate each other, and to push our artistic development.  I started out with mostly photo manipulation, but eventually found that I had more of an affinity for vector graphics, or for transforming photos into vector…

Animals

Moo
January 26, 2006

This may be seen as hypocritical, since I in no way purport to be “serving” the cause to prevent animal cruelty (I regularly eat at horrible fast food restaurants… although I do feel guilty whenever I’m reminded of where the stuff comes from). But I say fie to that. Just because I don’t practice what I preach – well, I’m not actually preaching anything, but you see what I’m saying…

Vicissitude

Man on the Bus
November 1, 2005

Pushdot Studio – Portland, OR November 1 – 30, 2005 Solo Exhibition “Vicissitude” 1.  The quality of being changeable; mutablility regarded as a natural process or tendancy in human affairs. 2.  Changes in circumstances; uncertainties or variations of fortune or outcome. As a photographer, I almost never shoot people.  It just doesn’t work for me.  By contrast, my digital work is almost completely people-centric. There’s something about being able to…
