Normally, this would fall under Sketchblog material, but I consider this to be a relaxed project. I started this exercise with Natasha just because we like collaborating and it's practice in comic arts. The storyline in these comic strips is connected by sound effects, and each one is absolutely improvised. I'll be posting them here and they will find there way around Tumblr. Here is mine:
After several years of not really taking any photos and not really enjoying photography, I'm getting back into it provided the new setting. A long time when I was in high school, I had a great photo teacher that encouraged creativity very strongly, and I did a series of photos as an assignment that were multiple exposures. They were digital - I was too afraid to do it on film, because it's technically difficult. Layering it up in Photoshop is easier, even though there is a difference in the process.
So recently I gave it a try on a film camera with some wonky film we bought (it wasn't exposing the way we expected). Unfortunately, the camera dropped the film pretty much immediately. It's kind of funny because when I went to get it developed (I don't have the luxury of a dark room), I asked for it to be pre-cut; they couldn't, because the pictures were a mashed-up run-on strip on half of the roll.
I'm taking what I can from it - it's kind of interesting. Here are the first two images to come out...and sorry for my offensive sense of humour.
Hello Planet. Welcome to the fresh launch of my art website!!!!!!!! If you're a bit confused, the old website went under the URL "graymankin.com" and looked pretty medieval in gray. If you're crafty, you can still find that relic on my server, but I rather you spend the time looking around this new site for new content and even old content previously not posted. Check out new photography and artwork. Check out the nice and neat Film section. I'm going to be adding minor things, but this is pretty much it.
A tonne of stuff has been obviously changed. I'm highlighting the two most important things:
With the launch of this website is also the launch of my prints and merchandise store at Society6! I will be adding more and more prints as time goes on...
Guess what else is released today? Crossing Over - Online. YAY!!!! Like it on Facebook, share the film everywhere!
You'll also notice a classy new BIO, a CV in a PDF viewer, and the sketchblog integrated into my website. There's social media sharing options on pretty much everything, so I expect to see some shares!
