In Current Production

I was out on the water last week, boating for the first time this summer which is a shame because summer is well past its halfway point. But I still had a great time cruising around, and I also had my camera on me. I ended up taking a few shots attempting to flesh out an idea for a recent project/collaboration that will hopefully continue on in production more so next week sometime.

A lot of my ideas start with some one thing, or aspect one way and then completely switch gears and head the other way after I've had sometime figuring out what I truly want experimenting with all of the options I've got running through my head. But it can't do anything but help in attempting to figure out what I'm truly looking for in an image. Sometimes the photos stay the same, and the style of editing might change, or vice versa.

I honestly don't know if this will be used though. Regardless, I thought I'd share these because a few people that've seen them prior to this post had given some positive feedback.

Hopefully you enjoy too,
Happy Wednesday to ya,

PS - Supposedly I'll be going to the city tomorrow, weather pending, for a promotional/lifestyle shoot for a couple of friends trying to put together a media package for their recent music productions. If things go well, I'll be sure to drop a sneak peak or something like that on here in the next couple of days.

Where were you on Saturday?

You should've been over at Phil/Philsays's for his welcome back BBQ, where there was tons of good food and beverage, great peoples, and some of the most ridiculous cars Chicagoland has ever, will ever know. Clearly my good man Josh/REVGASM's car (pictured above) always attracts a crowd.

The rest of the photos I took from his BBQ can be found on , and/or over on the Chicago Wangan forum.


Edit: A couple of the photos were featured on too, which is pretty neat. Here's a link:

I was supposed to go to the city today to take some promotional/lifestyle photos for a couple of friends trying to put together a media package, but plans ended up conflicting for one of them so we've rescheduled for next week. Hopefully things go well then, and I can post some fresh stuff on here again.

Here's a few photos from around town anyways:

Also, check out the CrazuKnights blog which is up now. Hopefully fresh material will continue to be posted there as well, and more and more things will be pieced together.

More Portfolio-esque; Vagueness

All types of fear and loathing going on,
It was a good trip for sure,

The Polar Bear Legion

I was looking through a bunch of old photos today, reorganizing folders and whatnot in my external harddrive, getting things up to date and landed on these. They haven't been working together as much as they were a few months ago, but looking back I wish the Legion would get back together to produce once more. It would be just too good to deny, and they know it.

two to ponder


Fresh Meat

I woke up today to the sound of a UPS truck driving away. I yelled, "NooooooOOOOOOoooooo!!!!" as a I ran to the front door. But then these were sitting on the porch anyways.

That is all,

Dont forget you can... most of the photos for larger, more visually stimulating versions.


PS, a favorite of a few friends', and myself, so why not? From the endless portfolio.

A recent design and the inspiration

Oh and one more thing before I go out for the night, I thought this was a neat looking design that ended up on the workroom floor, never to be used again. Or who knows really knows for sure.

And here's the inspiration, a section from the map of the Tokyo Bay area subway system:


Meeting of Styles; Chicago Twenty Oh Seven. And a sneak peak.

Just a few shots I took from last years' meeting of styles. From the portfolio, now on Nicospon. The first of hopefully many looks back at previous works.

As some people may already know, a few of these, and a few others were featured in the Winter/Spring 2008 issue of Echo Magazine, a student publication of Columbia College Chicago. In fact, it was the same issue I was fortunate enough to have been Photo/Illustration Editor for.

And heres a sneak peak of what's to come for the CrazuKnights blog/vinyl.

There's a lot more to see already made and in progress, but i've been delaying the release for numerous reasons related to my job and the crazy increase in hours I've been working, lack of time at home to put everything together and some issues with my car that I hope can be resolved in the next week or so.

But we'll see; as always, more to come guaranteed,
