Happy Halloween!

Hope all that seen this are having an enjoyable holiday! And some of those that don’t see this as well I guess.

Single light and Reflector

A few days ago I shot some photographs for Fingers Duke’s new clothing items with a lovely friend of mine named Marti. Here are a few of my favorites!

Shooting people in this manner isn’t really my forte, but it’s always fun to play with new and different things. I feel that I stretched the single available light fairly well. Thankfully I had my reflector handy!

Marti later told me that this was her “Creeper Look”
Thinking of hunger and hungering for thinking
And one final photo to finish out the post

Dead Girl Glowing Tee!

Printed freshly today! The Dead Girl shirt! The folks over at fingers Duke were printing these late into the evening so they could have them ready for a new t-shirt Tuesday.

Plus, it’s GLOW IN THE DARK. I’m going to turn out the lights where ever I go just so I can use it like a flashlight to see. I’m sure that I’ll have to be careful not to aim it directly at people so I don’t blind them (with awesome).

With lots of options!

I’m excited to see this design printed, or at all for a few reasons. This design was one I had done a couple of years ago (2010), and to have it show up again was quite my hearts delight! I was 100% sure that this was one of the designs that had gone up in smoke in the great 2011 digital fire and computer crash. So to get have it printed now, well, I did a merry little jig!
The initial conversation went sorta like this is a nutshell.

Fingers Duke, “Hey Joe, you remember that day of the dead girl that you designed a couple years ago? We were wondering if we could print those?”

Joe, “I wish you could my friends, but alas they have left the digital realm and only exist on a higher plain now.”

Fingers Duke, “Come again?”

Joe, “They got deleted when my computer and backup went down.”

Fingers Duke, “Oh, weeellll, we just found a copy of the files on one of our computers, so we can just print from that.”

Joe, “…….Awesome….” ¬† ¬†Then the single tear rolled down my cheek as I realized that maybe life was more like the movies than I had acknowledged.

All that aside they’re a very cool shirt that is very appropriate for the halloween season. Also they are printed in a verity of styles ranging from tee to hip loose sweatshirt type deal.

You can also see them on the Fingers Duke blog or even purchase one (or all of them) here!

Word puzzle!

This is a puzzle test. The for the first to get it, I will illustrate anything of their choosing to the best of my ability! You can all work together.
Your hints are language and games. And it is a lyric from a well known band.

This probably won’t get a single hit because I’m posting it at 3AM west coast time

Rainbow Dog

I saw a few rainbows today, and promptly felt bad for all the dogs that didn’t understand why their owners suddenly stopped walking and began staring at the sky. And in a true dog fashion I forgot about it and started smelling things.

This was happening all over the city today

Readability Experiment

Just a little experiment to see what would and wouldn’t be readable. Definitely not something that you can glance at and get. Plus, being a Pantone nerd helps a little too. Also, if you’re a female and you can read this through, we should probably get married.

Writers/ Drawers Block

I started to try a new style a few days ago. After almost a full day of attempting, I had come up with nothing. Such my fixation on it began and all progress ground to a halt.

Yes, for the past three days I’ve been a bear.

 

Also, I ordered an intervalometer today so expect more long exposures and time lapse in the future!
