What’s Up (May 2018)

Big Plans, Little Plans, Modeling, New TFP

Big Plans

I started working on a new plan for Techno Obscura. I’ve been working on it for months, actually. Little pieces turned into bigger and bigger efforts requiring more and more research. I’m finally getting to implementing it now.

What is it? I’m tired of being spread out. I have a website, all my stock media sites, various social media sites, a few portfolio sites, and I still don’t have time to keep them all updated while also helping my wife with her business. I’m just worn too thin to be effective anymore. What’s the fix?

First, the website is in dire need of work. I haven’t updated it in ages and its costing me business and making more trouble than its worth. To be fair, I’ve been working very hard with my wife to ensure the long-term success of WeeGonza Bazaar. Mostly photo and video work as well as a lot of art and making some awesome new products for her. After Phoenix Comic Fest, in only a couple weeks, I will begin working on my website and new content full time. I will still be working with my wife, but I’ll be taking more of an advisory role while we basically trim the fat and focus exclusively on our web “experience.”

Stock-ing Stuffers

I’ve posted hundreds of photos up for stock in the last couple weeks. I figured I would sift through my old files and see what I had in the vaults over the holidays. I also rediscovered some lost hard drives back in October and more in November that also had many terabytes of good, quality photo and video content. I knew I would find some, but I genuinely wasn’t prepared for the volume of stock that I found.

In all, I wound up finding over 350 images that met the criteria I was seeking. Beyond that, I narrowed it down to just under 300 after poring over some files that had serious (not feasible for fixing) issues which were not apparent on first review. Only when viewed at 100% was the issue apparent. Now, as a matter of course, I carefully examine each photo at 100% for detailed issues. Continue reading “Stock-ing Stuffers”

I finally did it. I made a store so I can sell my stuff. I’m still working on it and it’s nearly there. I may have to do some CSS, to which I’m not looking forward. I know I must. Onward!

Check the latest. I’m starting with some basic stuff while I figure out what I’m actually selling. If you would like something in particular, just let me know. I may actually have it.

Goodwill likes me. They don’t love me, but they like me. I buy a bunch of stuff there and I donate a bunch of stuff there. It’s a win-win. Most of my most unusual costume finds have been there.

I am obsessed with finding weird costume items for models who will eventually wear them. I don’t necessarily know the models or what they will wear, specifically, but I do know that it will be from these interesting and unusual costume items.
