I must have been a good boy this year and Nancy sure was kind to me for it. Up above is a coyote skull that she bought for me for the most recent holiday. She sure is awesome…

Anyway, I took today off of work because it was freezing outside (literally) and I did not feel it was a good idea to stand in sub-zero temperatures for over 30 minutes waiting for trains and buses. I ended up mostly bored all day and then I got a bug up my butt to finally do SOMETHING so the entire day didn’t feel wasted. That something was to take some photos of this-here skull. Fun stuff. Next time I am going to attack it with a flash so that it’s got less grain/noise in all the little details.

Hit the jump for more some tasty Black & White photos.

In my desire to create some new and better content for the blog, I’ve decided to start some new sections. One of those sections is the Vinyl Wednesdays. Another recent idea of mine was to show some of my workflow, from start all the way through to the finish. The first phase of this is showing some photography work of mine and how I “make” an image.

This week I have a short and sweet selection for ya, bluesman-extraordinaire George Thorogood and his album “Move It On Over.”

Here’s a little ditty I made a while back. I was pretty big into Scott H. Biram at the time and this lyric really sticks with me for some reason. I had the idea one day, did a few sketches and then just went at creating it. I took a day off of work to get some of my personal work done and this was created in a few hours just for fun. I found a medical illustration of a heart online somewhere and then used various old-timey printer’s fonts to lay out the text. It’s not a style of design that I normally do but I had a lot of fun attempting it and I feel it came out fairly well.

I’d love to get a few of these screen printed as posters or something but the funds really don’t allow that at this time. Maybe someday…

T-shirts. Who doesn’t love ’em? I know I do at least.

Up above is a mock-up of some recent graphics I made for my good buddy at Kustom Persuasion. He wanted something simple, classic and involving Ohio. We came up with that. I do believe he is currently working out all the kinks to his manufacturing and distribution for all the various shirt designs he offers. Hopefully it all gets sorted out soon and we can get some new designs rolling off the presses. This specific design started with the “clean” variety shown above and then morphed into a more aged, vintage look. Hit the jump to see the progress that it went through and to see the final graphic.

Here’s a little letter I made a short while back. I meant to post it Wednesday but life got in the way.

By the way, I’ll be back to updating Empty Seats this week as well as having some good posts on this blog. Eyes: keep ’em peeled.
