New Job — Back in Action

I just accepted a new position as a full-time photographer M-F, so my weekends have opened up for my own projects again.

And boy am I excited to make some art again!

I’ll be shooting head shots and more, and have invested in more studio equipment so I’ll be updating you guys as I go.

For now, here’s a fun shot of me being ridiculous with makeupsplit

Rock Bouncing Media

I’m new to the whole culture of rock bouncing, but apparently it’s a lot of fun involving suped-up buggies and all-terrain vehicles. Sponsors, competitors, and families gather together for weekends of races and advertising.

My cousin and her husband lead C&C Racing, with the title group “Hot Shot.”

I had the opportunity to design their poster for this weekend’s convention–in about two hours.

Hope they’re having fun. If I have any luck, I’ll be there to photograph the next event!

Concept Art “Parenthood”

While my camera is in the shop I figured I ought to keep up the productivity. I’ve finished chapter six of the novel and am about a third of the way through my sci-fi screenplay. 

Here’s a sketch that I doodled and then transferred to canvas so that I could color it. 

It’ll be for sale once I’m finished. Probably a fun piece to decorate a kids room with or an office if you’re a fan of Disney or Dreamworks animation. 

I’ll be using acrylic on the canvas, and I have only color blocked the first layer, but here you go: 

Visiting the Cousins

I had a delightful time visiting my Tennessee kin last week and grabbed a few shots when I could (when we weren’t watching little Emery…).

I’m relocating to Columbia, TN soon, and I have to say, I’m beyond excited about it. It’s like a light bulb turned on while I was there, and it felt like home–complete with cows.

My early childhood was spent in the upper Midwest, so it’ll be great to return to some soil that is actually made out of soil, rather than sand.

Evidently Miranda Lambert and Justin Timberlake won’t be too far away too. They say you run into a lot of really nice people in this part of the country.

I’m sure we’ll be best friends forever…

Anyway, I’ll keep up as much as I can. Must get packing though. I have to fit everything I own into my Corolla. I don’t think that will be terribly difficult, but my mom has a habit of sending me off with enough supplies to last several months, so I may need to rent a Uhaul.

Boo.
