more than one

Three works consisting of multiple images meshed in different ways; from last semester.




Fresh material hopefully sooner than later. Supposedly I'll finally have my car back this week; aka, I'll be mobile and should have no excuse. Which is a good thing.

This is a photo I took at a relative's house just last week. They have artwork by various members of the family, and friends of, hanging around the house and this one stood out. The piece is by a friend of the family, Mark Zender, of a guitar drawn on cardboard using application of different ink styles. He's done, by my cousin Aaron's account, hundreds of these cardboard works with many different subjects depicted, but only a few remain in his possesion. He doesn't have any site online to reference (although I hear one is in the works), but I thought I'd share and if anyone is interested in his work, I can probably get you contact info/in touch.

I have other shots of his work, and plan to get more, to share and will. He truly has a unique talent. Actually, now that I just remembered, he's actually holding another piece of his work in a photo on this blog, under the post 'Chicago.' He's outside of Frohman's, holding a canvas on the left side of the image.

This one is actually by me, it's a mixture of two photos using photoshop CS3 taken in the same location. It's supposed to represent the spins and the subtle shift in reality associated with a long night of drinking. Thus it's title: DrunkInAParkingLot.

Hopefully you enjoyed these semi abstract pieces,

If so, or not, I plan on sharing more in the future.

I haven't updated this in a few days now, but not because I didn't want to. The weather yesterday, and on Thursday last week, both interrupted plans, and I've been focusing on stuff for the CrazuKnights blog all weekend/lasterday. So, instead of posting some fresh work, here is another from the portfolio and the story behind it:

This photo was originally used in the issue of Echo that I must've referred to at least once by now, but it appeared in color. I went to the designer of the magazine with both options, and stressed my opinion that the black and white looked better, and would go better with the story idea in more ways than one. But the color versions from the set were used anyways, and I don't really complain much.... That must be a joke.

Anyways, goes to show that sometimes things just don't work out how you had planned.
Don't you hate cliche sayings like that?
Don't you hate the cliche word, cliche?
Or is that too strong of a word?
