Welcome to my art blog! I work mostly with computer graphics, but I have been known to dabble with the occasional paintbrush or lump of clay.

 

The mid-season break is starting to get to me, had to get some Daryl love out of my system.

YAY! New Night Vale thing! This was born while designing a bumper sticker for my brother for Christmas. I liked how it came out so I decided to make it into a desktop! (Click-through for full-sized version).

Yes, yes, I know this is supposed to be a blog for graphics, but it’s my blog and I do what I want, so photography you get ;)

These were taken during my expedition around Newport, Rhode Island. My brother (who was serving as my guide) and I found this awesome cliff that you could see for miles on top of. much amaze. so wow.

I had the opportunity to play with a fisheye camera lens back in October. So of course, being the crazy cat lady that I am, I had use my kitties as my first  victims  models.

I got to use the Canon EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye lens, and, having played with it for a few days, I’m glad I decided to rent it ($27 for 3 days from BorrowLenses) instead of jumping the gun and purchasing it ($600 - $700, ouch). Not that it wasn’t a nice lens, but it didn’t seem to be very fisheye-y. I either had to be extremely close to the subject (like in these photos), or I had to be photographing something with a lot of straight lines and angles in order to tell it was a wide angle fisheye lens. Maybe that’s how all fisheyes are, or maybe it’s because it’s the cheaper of Canon’s wide angle fisheye lenses, I don’t know. I did get some really neat photos, though.

This is a mock-up of part of a project I will be doing for Halloween. This is based on the lovely image done by Shining Armor Graphics, because as my roommate is a citizen of Night Vale, I find my home in Desert Bluffs. This project will be an act of communal cooperation!

AHH! Someone made a thing of my thing! (That I made of another thing)

This is actually a by-product of another Night Vale piece I was working on, but I liked it on its own better.

My dad got married this past Saturday, so I, of course, had to make a uniquely complicated and time consuming wedding gift for him and my new step-mom!

One glass is his fingerprint, the other is hers, with their respective names etched at the foot of the glass. And since it was a set of four wine glasses, the other two glasses are a matched set with a simple Rhode Island (where we live), and the date of their wedding.

This project took way longer than I thought it would initially. Each fingerprint glass, from start to finish, took a bit less than 8 hours of work (this includes scanning the fingerprints I stole from them, cleaning them up in Illustrator, making the stencil, and finally etching the glass with ArmourEtch). The Rhode Island glasses were much quicker and took only about two hours each.

Needless to say, they both loved the glasses. I was happy with their reaction to seeing them, because my homemade gifts are only as good as the joy people get out of them.

I’m not dead! Look! See? I made a self-portrait thingy!
Lately I’ve taken to starting 500 projects at a time and not finishing them, hence the lack of submissions.
