Modified Chinatown Crosshatch

Oooo — so very happy with this. This fine art print is based on a photo from the Carol M. Highsmith collection at the Library of Congress. Stretched, sliced, diced, spindled and otherwise warped into something very different from the source.

Modified Mega Skyline

Hmmm — it’s late Saturday afternoon and I’ve come up with a plaid city. Yet I can’t bring myself to call this “Plaid City,” and I’m not sure why. Several major skylines overlaid with one another — then blended and stretched and all that other stuff I do to them.

squidgy five o’clock somewhere

Yes, I have been absent from the site for a while. Work and that darned day job get in the way, sometime. Took a few minutes for my own mental health this weekend and whipped this up from my own personal photos.

I donated prints of Drinky Winky 1, 2, and 3, and also Moto Kanji #15, 16, and 17. See below:

Moto Kanji #14

Moto Kanji #14 is definitely a departure from the original intent, but it’s based on the same idea, so I’ll file under Moto Kanji, rather than some new appellation. And I should probably just make my life easier and broaden the definition.

Actually, by calling it so, I guess I have already broadened the definition.

If you’re curious — which I hope you are — this is k-rail on Loop 820 in Northwest Fort Worth, where a car rubbed against the k-rail. I photographed this one this weekend while the house was pretty quiet, and I thought I could get out and get weird without causing too much stress.

Moto Kanji #13

Ah, back to the heart of Moto Kanji — tire tracks as brush strokes. It’s been amazing discovering how the idea plays out in the real world. We’re I using brush marks to make tire tracks, I’d have infinite control over how and where the brush strokes appear.

Squidgy Cowboy Bill

An unchosen illustration for a client, this is a squidgy version of an image from the Library of Congress. Based on part of the poster for the Bull-Doggers.

Moto Kanji #12

Not at all what  was expecting from Moto Kanji, but we can file this one under happy accidents.

This was photographed somewhere in Northwest Fort Worth, along with a metric crap-ton of other shots in and around Fall 2012. The colors and contrast were heavily massaged and adjusted in photoshop, but otherwise there are no other adjustments.

Throckmorton 10/22/11

A series of photos taken by Fort Worth photographer Aaron Dougherty, edited together into a panorama by me. Part of a series I’ve been working on since last year, and for which I have big, crazy plans.
