Pretty Pictures

Standard

Been playing around with different creative outlets the past couple of months. Decided it’d be fun to share some of the results and works in progress.

Kind of obsessed with these repetitive patterns as backgrounds, for what, no clue. But I think they look pretty cool.

Some watercolor flowers, I seem to have a thing for tulips.

Photoshop

Standard

In my attempt to be a more well rounded individual, I’ve ventured into other creative outlets. Lately, my attentions have been drawn to photo editing and have been working with Photoshop. I have taken classes in the past, so I do know some basics, but I am really still just learning. Unfortunately, I am working on a really old version. New Adobe software is way too expensive for me, besides my computer wouldn’t be able to run it. This limits what I have the ability to do, but I’ve tried to make the best of what I have.

I am not a model but I happen to be friends with an amazing model and one of  her favorite photographers. So last Halloween we got together and really just had a good time. Some workable images came out of it but mostly we just had fun.

Check out their websites for more of their professional work. They are both incredibly talented at what they do.

Royal Flush Festival

Standard

This weekend I am volunteering for the Royal Flush Festival. It’s a once a year festival that this year marks the release of Royal Flush Magazine. It includes film screenings, art shows, parties and rock concerts. It started on this past Thursday and runs until Monday.

Yesterday there were several movies screened at the Anthology Film Archives, and the official magazine release party at Crash Mansion. The bands playing this party were Cinema Cinema, Black Water Rising, Goes Cube and Suicide City. They all killed, I did get to check in on the bands every now and then but even while at the door I was able to hear.

Today it continues with more short films, panel discussions, an art show, more live music, and parties. Monday is the last day of the festival, and I highly suggest finding your way to at least one of the many events going on. For a complete schedule go to www.royalflushfestival.com.
