Been ages since I posted. This is “Supercurve,” taken in this morning’s fantastic fog at the Corner of I-30 and Loop 820.
Frankly, I just don’t think you can get much more awesome than “Chinese wiseman holding a sword and riding on the back of a tiger.” That’s the title of the original photograph from the Library of Congress. Created this one for my presentation at Pecha Kucha Vol. 9 earlier this month. 12.5×17 print on 13×19 […]
This fine art print is 26×36 — Modified Switching Yard. Hardly recognizable from the original, which shows the Chicago & Northwestern Proviso Yard in Chicago from the Library of congress). There’s a lot going on here!
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.
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.
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’ve donated two sets of fine art prints to the Hip Pocket Theater Silent Auction. I hope you can come out tonight and support them!
I donated prints of Drinky Winky 1, 2, and 3, and also Moto Kanji #15, 16, and 17. See below:
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.
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.
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.
