Elements of a design 5

Bunnies and birdies, and that (I believe) com­pletes the major con­struc­tion on this project. Now it’s just a ques­tion of putting it all together.

Yup, more. We’ve got heaps and stacks of these lit­tle guys around here.

Speculations on a civilization 1000 years dead

In look­ing closely at the Mimbres designs, I noticed some­thing … intrigu­ing. Well, all right, sev­eral things. (This will have some images below the fold — some of them are fairly large.)

Meep meep.

More of that Mimbres-​​​​inspired stuff I was talk­ing about yes­ter­day. I think it’s really com­ing together now.

Elements of a design

Recently I was tasked with devel­op­ing a more or less per­ma­nent design that would be used, indef­i­nitely, on the T-​​​​shirts we do for our annual Route 66 5K/​​10K run. In pok­ing around for some decent south­west­ern designs, I stum­bled across (was reminded of, actu­ally) art­work by the Mimbres cul­ture, an off­shoot of the Mogollon. I was able to do […]

Okay, maybe I was half-​​dead.

Not lit­er­ally, of course, but I do believe that I men­tioned I was less than happy with some of the car­i­ca­tures I posted yes­ter­day. I patched them — had to. It was eat­ing at me. Eating at me like a wee tiny toothy lit­tle hor­rid lep­rechaun with a rat­tish over­bite and hal­i­to­sis on par with the rec­tum of a dis­eased pigeon. Well, all […]

I’m not dead!

I think I’ll go for a walk! I feel happy! I feel happy! Just been up to my eye­brows in it. Quite a lot going on on the work front, which tends to tax my energy down a bit when I get home. However, I’ve man­aged to do a few fun things, such as the fol­low­ing. Hospital Week is an annual celebration […]

Mango Pickle

I play some didj too. Though not usu­ally after I catch bream. Come to think of it, I’m not sure what bream looks like. Much more bet­ter with sub­woofer. Rake the shafters.

Boulevard of broken ads

A local high school sold us space for an ad in their annual, and what I did for it at first might be inap­pro­pri­ate accord­ing to some, but it sure as hell would be a thing to see in a year­book.* It’s sup­posed to be an ad for our fit­ness cen­ter, try­ing to con­vince the grad­u­ates to attend.

This is haunting

Really quite good.

No, not dead.

Just up to my into. Thought I’d pause for a moment to rumi­nate, though, on the nature of what works and doesn’t in the lens. Now I can’t take a stu­dio shot to save my life. This is not often true. Many, and I mean many, phở­tog­ra­phers are just bril­liant at por­trait pics. Well, I’ve never really tried it; I don’t have […]
