Forgot to post this

"All That I Have"
Did this one pretty quickly over the course of a week

Also looking at this blog is kind of crazy. It's cool/unusual to see how many posts I have and for how many years have gone by on it. Time flies.

Collage in Progress and Photo of a previous gallery piece based on sexual conversation

The first one probably requires some explanation. It's a survey/score based survey that people can participate in. It's a take on the behavior of men to share sexual stories of conquest upon the opposite sex. The show it was created for was based on gender issues. I wanted to discuss this strange behavior that I never really understood growing up, which also made me pretty uncomfortable.
I hate how I can't just have all my pics lined up in order and have text at the bottom... maybe I should move on to tumblr.

Not sure if this is done

I clone stamped some stuff out of this photo, pardon the weirdness of it. I'll get a better shot of this when it's up at the Bear Gallery.

I call it "Love" and it's made for the Grimm Fairytale show

You can't really tell but there is a lot of depth to it, and a lot of pieces hang freely.

Starting to collage/paint by just using pieces rather than starting with any sort of base surface

Dimensions vary

I'll try to get a better shot of it to avoid the glare in the daytime at some point. I think it's done... got a bit crazy with it. Started branching out from the surface and sides

Reworked and a new small quick one

This is a bit reflective as it has resin on it now. May be hard to see, it's not easy to photograph anymore. Reworked some oils over top the resin. For Lindsey Parker

Venturing into sound. This is just a test with a new recorder that I already have a project in mind for.
This clip is just me reading the first few pages in the Prologue for 'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo'. Forgive the wind and other noises as I was at the beach recording this.
I'll be mailing this recorder to my mom in Ohio. I plan on having her record herself reading entire books aloud.

Like most children my mom read to me when I was little. Unlike most though my mom read to me till I was quite a bit older than the norm. Through the recording I plan on sharing this experience with others. Sharing my childhood and reliving it too. Relational. Right now I think of a book hung on a wall with a media player located underneath with some headphones.
Any input on this is welcome. I'm still thinking a lot about this.
The last written entry on here was a bit extreme.

This is a 2 parter. Both pieces relate. First one is marker on canvas print of Disney World.
2nd is charcoal and marker.

This will be the first part of a series I'm currently making to potentially work as one large piece. They'll fit together thematically, not so much visually.

I call this one
