Mane

Mane

Word: Mane
Definition: Head of hair
Synonyms: hair, strand, crown, ridge

My friends are amazing. No, they really are!
Sarah M in particular, is probably the most Diva I have ever seen, but the one thing I love about this diva; she knows how to look good for photos!

Just recently I went on a “hair photo-shoot” with this girl, and in all honesty it was more of a “Sarah photo-shoot.” I tried really hard to focus on the long mane she had going on (extensions), but I just couldn’t help but adore how natural she was in front of a camera. This made my job infinitely easier and the photos that sprung from it all are some of my favorites.

So I really hope you all have friends who not only are naturals in front of a camera, but are fun to go on little adventures with. Don’t be afraid to ask your friends to take photos of you or vice versa. You really don’t know how amazing they will turn out until you try.

Diva or not, I think I see a lot of myself in this young 20 year old who asked for a simple (yet lovely) shoot..

Thanks for being amazing Sarah!

It’s been a little while since I dabbled in something I call Multimedia Digital Art. What that means is, I’ve clustered together a different brush to create an image of something real. It’s like mixing paints or something along those lines. However, instead of paints and such, I used brushes that represent a different image. Of course the background layer is my own mixture of color as a base, but you get the gist. I’ve fooled around with different types of effects as well, so this is new and exciting after so many years of doing the same thing over and over again.

I do hope you enjoy the few I have thus far.

Check out my Facebook website if you’d like to see more of these!
Come by the shop as well (in the navigation bar, click Shop) to purchase the image on a variety of house hold items, such as pillow shames, clocks, mugs, and other fine things!

Thanks so much for your support you guys! It’s certainly what keeps the projects going and sharing more frequent!

I wont apologize for the lateness of this post. However I will celebrate that things are now back on track; well sort of!

For the past few months, it’s been a ride that I’d not seen coming. After some misadventures in 2016, the new year seemed a bit more promising. It’s been non-stop; go, go, go, and make sure you take a breather somewhere kind of year. Heartbreak didn’t slow me down, or stop me. Instead if freed me from one less priority to make way for other fabulous things.

What fabulous things? Well, I’ve been at the local market Since January 7th (2017), and missing only-maybe a whopping 3 or 4 days in the month (it’s only a few Saturdays considering the rest of the week it’s not open). The things I sell there rang anything from original paintings, hand colored prints, and jars full of (not so real) pixie dust for all audiences.

It’s been a wonderful kick to the new year and I wont be stopping there. I just (right before this post), officially opened my Etsy.com shop (check it out here). My relatively new images were also posted on my Facebook Fanpage (again, look here).

Yet so much still needs to be done. For now, here’s what I got for you lovely creatures!

Thanks so much for the support you’ve all given me! It paves a way for bigger and better things. I hope the artist in you try’s it’s hand at making it a life career! If not, well that’s okay too! Just enjoy the things you love and whatever makes you happy at the end of the day!

Cheers!

Synonyms: wealth, abundance, luxury etc…

Over the summer I had the pleasure of taking a copious amount of photographs of some of my favourite people – my friends.

There are a so many places in my city to go to for settings to take pictures. Most being that of nature but with the added touch of either rustic or a hint of beauty. Of course I gave my models the choices of their outfits but they really pulled off the things I had directed to them.

With this I only give you less than a handful of the images I’m most proud of. I hope that you all feel as though you have plenty to work with in your own cities, with your friends volunteering their time, and natures abundance of backdrops.

Take advantage of all that you have around you, because you never know what you’ll produce until you utilise these things.

For a lack of a better, this was what I came up with for me not being here. It’s been a good few months of non stop drawing and writing (stories). I can’t say that I haven’t thought about updating you all on what has been happening.

Recently, as the weather is improving, I’ve had the urge to pull out my camera and take some photos. Soon enough I’ll be out doing more of that, than sitting at home – chained to my desk really.

With that said, I hope you enjoy some of the images I’ve uploaded. These are works that I’ve done for my own amusement while I was absent from the blogging world. Please enjoy!
