The Apple iMac that we use at work. There are 3 listers and we all have our own station and iMac. Awesome device and I haven’t used a Mac since college, but I’ve adapted! iMac’s are on their own computer planet of operations…it takes some getting used to! It seems as though if you are an artist, a designer of some sort or work in media, if you do not ever touch a Mac you are an alien… I, of course, utilize it so much at work (as it is the center of productivity besides the digital cameras) that I am very well maintaining LED Screen-itis.
Hi, all! I hope all my readers and those passing through and deciding to stop and read my blog are well!
I haven’t posted anything in quite some time because I am so busy working as an e-commerce lister (I photograph and list merchandise for a company’s online store). I started Jan. 7th. It is a very cool job, but I have to say the friendliness and neat vibe I thought my boss had (That I was shown during my 1st 2-3 times around her) was just a facade. Apparently everyone else in my dept. is knowledgeable of this fact, too, and we all seem to bond in this knowledge and look out for each other. She has deeply negative and nit-picky issues about her character and how she manages/treats employees. But one should never let outside forces deter them. I am going to keep working as I’ve been hired to do. I am improving a lot and I still love my job and what it all involves, but I don’t have to stay there for an eternity! Life is a journey and noone can mess that journey up for you unless you let them.
I hope to be posting, again, soon and until then, please keep visiting my blog (even re-reading past posts). Thank you!!
I’ve had headaches for the past 2 or 3 days, thanks to high level work and NO friggin breakfast. I started skipping breakfast somewhat often in college, but it looks to be a habit I need to stop before my head EXPLODES! I had to take Advil today. Not as many as in the photo…I am trying to cure it, not DIE!!
Ending the Work Week: This weekend, I want to go to see a movie, but I also want to make my occasional trip to the bar, too. Where I live, there’s bars all over the place! That’ll erase a headache before it even starts! Hey, as an artist, I should know how to PAINT the town red!! Harhar…bad joke, I know…………………
Hi, readers! Thank you for stopping by and feel free to navigate around this blog! I have just completed a project for a client. Well, it’s a trial project. I had to shoot images for a wikihow-type article (or maybe the author will actually be doing an article for wikihow). This is not exactly Gordon [...]
Jacksonville Landing at an Angle. Altered photography/graphic design. 2013. Jacksonville, FL. This is a scenic spot and great for photographing; I take my camera with me often. The photograph is one I shot, from Main Street Bridge, with a GE digital camera in 2011. The alterations were done in Photoshop CS6. This is called a [...]
Hi, all! Every now and again, I will post sketches I’ve done. Since they are my sketches and not my fine art pieces, they do not see a whole lot of light of day as they are holed up in a notebook, computer/laptop or flashdrive. These are some examples of the bare bones of my art. Some [...]
Hi, precious blog readers! Just wanted to report something interesting, quickly! I am happy to say I finally co-authored a blog (I opinion that every blogger should do this at least a few times to bring attention to their blog and to even attract more co-authoring opportunities)! Here is an excerpt from a Hongkiat.com article [...]
Hi, all! I hope all my readers and those passing through and deciding to stop and read my blog are well! This month, so far, has been one of those months where it is kind of hard to squeeze in blogging thanks to doing other things (extracurricular stuff…apart from my blogging here!) and just being [...]
Reblogged from caloniedoesart: Another in a series of analyses on my art. Feel free to comment with questions you may still have. "burst", 2007 WHAT: One of my favorite works! Well...it's not a dude, so it is obviously a woman! A young woman in profile, noone in particular. Not a bad-looking lady, huh? And I'm [...]
Reblogged from caloniedoesart: Finally, another post! Yeah! But it's also a sad one. Boo hoo. I will just keep it laced with humor to keep from sobbing my eyes out. Again. In my last post ("WhatWhenWhyHow: Artwork Analysis 4"), I mentioned I would do a post on the tragedy that befell my laptop. Here goes: [...]
Spite, hatred and intolerance ceased his body from living, but those things did not end his spirit (as the spirit surpasses the body and lives on) and those things did not end his vision (things have improved and society still fights on). Hatred and evil: you are one big FAIL. Today is the 45th anniversary [...]
I suppose when I started with visual art, I figured it would be waaay more interesting to diddle with than anything else. math, for ex., is useful, but below sea level on the interest scale.
I am primarily a draughtsman (drawing), but I also paint, do digital photography and have grown very enamored of graphic design/art.
A native of Connecticut, I make my home in the the South, now. I hold a BA in Studio Art from Claflin University and once worked out of a physical shop creating/selling my work.
My work primarily focuses on social, emotional, spiritual subjects. The work is conceptual. I also create many portraits and logos by commission. My biggest humbling experience was receiving a thank you card from Pres. & First Lady Obama (Jan. 2010) in response to prints of a portrait I had created of him. I sent the prints to them. God is awesome!
As of October 2012, I just had my 1s solo art show in September and gearing up for a joint art exhibit in November. I am also creating art, of course!
To me, the arts is an invaluable institution which lets artists express many ideas (personal and social) and lets viewers of art appreciate the arts and also inspire thought through art.
I consider my gift to be from God and am very glad I am able to use it. I also just want to inspire others to want to get into it, too, or at least look at art with newfound interest while getting mental exercise.
