The end of a thought…

Today was one of those days that things just felt right. I had decided some time ago to say goodbye to a project that began a few months back but was debating the right way to do so. In the past all I would do with old projects is crush and destroy and eventually just toss it into the bin. This time I decided to document it with the help of my friend Leah Mooney and Leo Bonarigo. Myself and Leah photographed while Leo filmed the whole experience. Now granted we filmed this morning so nothing will be done for a while but until then enjoy the photographs bellow. These are a series of shots taken throughout the experience and although they may not appear super exciting it was somewhat refreshing to finish the project  this way. This truly felt like the end of a thought, an idea of a toxic growth that pushed away by nature or maybe consumed by it. Either way it was a great experience. Please take a look… and enjoy. I’ll post the video once its completed.

Hyde Park Open Studios… Success

Well, I guess I wouldn’t say it was a “success” I didn’t really sell much except for the cards I had produced. Granted even that was nice though, to see that people do actually like what it is that I make. The most entertaining comments were always from people who obviously could understand the cards and then were completely baffled by the actual prints on the wall. Anyway, I have great feedback and luckily some great conversations with visitors. The event also allowed me to finally get to meet a lot of the members from EES which was wonderful. Being the newbie on the block has been a bit interesting and it is nice to finally get to chat with people. Anyway below are a series of images I took of the Open studios. Maybe next year you can stop by. Enjoy!

There it is my own personal wall… I was pleased.
