In case you didn’t see the title of this post, I’ll reiterate: “Abandoned Vail Warehouse, Scottsdale, a Wedding, a Short Film, and the Sasco Shoot.”

This sums up my last couple weeks.

I rented a camera for a wedding on Saturday. Booked a shoot for Friday to try out the camera (Abandoned Vail Warehouse Photo Scout). Got a call that the wedding was being pushed forward due to rain. Booked another shoot for Saturday (Scottsdale). The wedding got moved to Sunday (The Wedding). I’ve been working on and off on a Short Film and that was Tuesday after the wedding (The Short Film). Finished off with another shoot on this last Friday at the SASCO Abandoned Mine (Sasco Shoot).

Right?

I’ve only really finished processing The Wedding and The Photo Scout. Lots of great images from the Scottsdale Shoot. Working those next.

I have another shoot tomorrow morning. Ought to be interesting. Might have another on Saturday, too.

All of my shoots now are TFP. Doing an awful lot of it lately.

Stay tuned for more information on my new Easy Trade program.

Exciting things coming our way!

Cthulhu Librarian’s Discovery Announcement

Announcing the latest, Lovecraft/Cthulhu inspired Photo Painting

The Librarian's Discovery
Librarian finds a great old one populating her library

 Immediately off the holidays, I have been getting more and more requests to see my artwork. I suppose my work on putting this site together has been taking a bit longer than it should. So, without further pomp and circumstance, I introduce a new print entitled, “The Librarian’s Discovery.”

This piece really drives home my love for both photography, digital painting and the Cthulhu Mythos. I remember reading these stories when I was in High School. They didn’t really scare me, but they were invigorating nonetheless. When I first sketched this composition out on paper, I had no idea it would turn into this. I love the “underdog” status she has, her cute smile and the fact that she shot first. Take that! No madness here. No gibbering mess. She is a librarian with amazing super powers and a refusal to succumb to madness.

The model is professional, freelance, traveling model, Charlie Kristine with whom I worked a few years back for some experimental photography. It is from those shots I found the image of her in a running pose.

The Cthulhu model is actually a reworked photo of a large Cthulhu figure used for some type of Hero Clix game. I haven’t actually played the game. I imagine the Cthulhu figure was righteously expensive. Which is neither here nor there, but the idea about the figure used with a real model in an image was intriguing. I wound up adding more tentacles, altered the eyes, and enhanced the look of him. Also added the bullet blast spray in bright green.

Print sizes vary a lot. Existing prices and sizes reflect the image filling the edges of the print as close as possible, leaving a 1/4″ border to allow for matting and framing. Additional sizes are available. Please ask me if you want a different size.

Cute Vampire Girl Quick Post

Little Vampire Girl
A Little Vampire Girl at night in pink and ready for a night of devouring humans.

Just put this one up on my store. You can see it here.

She is one of my new Photoshop paintings from some set test photos from 2014 for some stock video I shot with a Halloween/Vampire theme.

We used some fake fangs – the cool ones that go on each tooth. 

The moon (showing the ISS in transition) and night sky star photos are from NASA.

Total time spent: about 6-7 hours over 2 days.

Let’s just dive in here.

Here is one of my latest images. She is inspired by the character Harley Quinn of Batman Fame.

This is one I avoided because I didn’t think I could make it the way I wanted it. This is the tail end of my stencil phase – I made a ton of stencils for a while. I can’t explain why. They just needed to be made is all.

Available as an 11×17″ print with a border. Printed on good quality paper.

$25 plus shipping/handling. Sold on Etsy. Web store is slowly in the works.
