It's been a while, starts every post by everybody ever. So does this one.
My lack of posts has mostly been due to the fact that I have been too lazy to do another freckle feature, because long ago, I lost track of where in my collection I was, and now I'm not confident that I could do another without repeating myself. So what, huh? I should probably just do one, right? Yeah, probably.
Well, not today, bros and brodettes.
Here's a little news and such, to tide you over, those of you who are desperate for news on complete strangers' lives:
A while ago, I got a nice 50mm prime lens (and by nice, I mean cheap, and nicer than a kit lens).
I have yet to use it on any serious shoots, apart from self-portraits, which I may be taking too many of, on account of the fact that most models who might want to work with me go into hibernation during winter, apparently. That said, I have a little backlog of self-portraits that I'm teetering on the edge of posting.
I got a WACOM tablet for Christmas this year, and I've been practising with it, in preparation for one of my many pet-projects. This pet-project is The Robe, a comic book about an ugly bathrobe from the 70s that alters reality at random. It's kind of a super-hero story, but it's more of a "this bathrobe is nuts" story. It's largely inspired by that awesome period in the late 80s at DC Comics before they started up Vertigo, and they had Swamp Thing and Animal Man and Hellblazer all at once, intermingling. It was good times. So, prepare to never read that, because I have a full time job, and not nearly enough time to write and draw that whole thing myself.
Speaking of things that I do that prevent me from doing other things - I have spent most of the last year composing weird electronic music for a choreographer's dance cycle. It's eight pieces of music, and I think I learned a lot from working on it. I'm still working on the last track, but that's gonna be done soon, and I'll put it all up as an album on my music website, which is here: [link]
Oh, and the choreographer had all of those dances filmed, so, I basically got a bunch of free music videos. Nice. She's holding a screening of the films in about two weeks, where I will get to perform a bit of my music, so that's cool.
Aaaaand, in addition to my personal tumblr, I've started another to document my love of DC Comics, which is kind of intense.
