    sesame paper

    atlantik - thx. the song is Mad World from the Donnie Darko soundtrack.

    --------------

    I'll probably use this as a cover for a collection of short stories if I ever put it together.


    original sketch here

    an illustration of my local town council


    close-up


    I recycled an old sketch to use for the Clay Sisk motel project using their motel stationary paper



    I've been playing around with infrared photography.



    chlorophyll, like in these normally dark leaves, shows up as a strong white in near-infrared


    it's hard to read this photo, but the tree in the center here is a purple plum. the leaves are very, very dark, but they're white when using a near-infrared filter. the sky also turns dark unless it's overcast. Barely visible clouds are easier to see as well.


    in near-infrared a clear sky is dark like this without after-tweaking


    here's a comparison.

    infrared in grayscale (at top) versus visible light in grayscale (...bottom)


    the dark plum looks almost like a negative, but it's not. here's the visible (bottom) full color along with what an actual negative would look like (at top) just as a reminder. notice that it's quite different from the infrared up above.


    all photos taken with a sony dsc-h1 and an opteka 58mm R72 720nm infrared filter (no, it didn't turn anyone's clothes to saran wrap, but i didn't really try either)

    and, a close-up


    thanks for looking

    Evxyza92 - Many thanks. I'm glad you like it.

    --------------

    Hereís my latest belly button. I did this a few months back, but I never photographed the piece. I know, itís an odd subject, but the body is a curious thing.

    I think Iím going to start a series consisting of isolated areas of the body. At the very least, itíll be good practice.

    I couldnít sleep, so I did some test runs. pastel and charcoal on ink-stained hot press watercolor paper. small, around 5◊4 or so each







    thanks for looking,
    Craig

    You have a really good sketchbook, I have it subscribed for a long time now even if the first time I am posting here.
    I like to see a varied sketchbook.
    Those last studies look good, good luck with that series.
    Pastel over watercolour is great, I used to do a lot of that...
    cheers

    voraz - thx. I'm glad you've been along for the ride. I just stopped by your book. Great stuff.

    ---------

    Here's another momentary departure from the usual sketchbook stuff. I've been having fun playing around with my new IR filter.

    atlantik - thx. hopefully I'll get back to them and do so more in the same style

    -----------------

    for the sake of practice Iíve been working on this here and there for a few weeks. this is in black prismacolor with alcohol to wash it out and then some more cp - touched up in painter


    character sketch - still need to add some text and some other stuff, but I'm not all that jazzed about it anyhow. if curious, she does enjoy the breeze


    old man with a stick...


    and, some photos

    an old ear


    a bushy tail


    a go around (F/3.2 1/25sec ISO-64 9mm) w/ adjusted levels using ps

    Incredible work man, great compositions. The colors in that merri-go-round photograph are amazing.

    still kickin'

    So, it's been a year. And, funny enough, Peter, you had it half-right. I did go off and get married.

    I have still been drawing, and I've picked up some work here and there, but for the most part I have been doing a LOT of photography.











    and, some recent photos









    yep, been a while

    OK. I haven't posted or done much drawing for two years. About the same time I last posted I started a wedding photography business -- things have been excellent in the photography dept, but illustration stopped cold. Now I've put my studio back together post-move and I'm going to get back on the bike. I figured it made sense to start with a figure in a forgiving medium.

    colored pencil and alcohol wash (cottonball over the cp)


    Thanks for looking. It's been a long, long while.
