Happy Halloween, Y'all!

This is the first piece of art I've made in weeks. It's nice to get down to the studio and punch out something new. I created this critter for the Monster Mash Halloween Contest. This little creature is a Hamigon. I wanted to mix something that was cute and adorable (hamster) with something super-dangerous (dragon) then just threw in a unicorn for good measure. It's a nice, pretty lino block print. I do love printing! I should do it more often.

Some Foreign Flower

Last week we saw the Shins play in Atlanta. It was a fabulous show and the opening band didn't suck at all! During their encore they played a cover of Pink Floyd's Breathe. Can't beat that!

These past few weeks have been stressful, full of health and personal challenges and hopefully we've gotten past the worst part. I need to get back to taking care of myself and my creative side. I need to stop procrastinating and stop being unmotivated. I can't sit back and wait for inspiration to strike. I have to go out and make it happen.

Hello Tuesday.

Downtown Atlanta

Oh boy. I've been busy. And lazy. Busy and lazy. I've finally found some downtime this week to get caught up on housework, laundry, and of course, blogging. Let's see, what should I talk about first?

Interpol - We saw Interpol at the Tabernacle in ATL on Friday, September 22nd. The opening band sucked and even got some "booooo"s from the crowd. Interpol was perfect that night and played an amazing show. They've earned a spot on my favorite bands list. I got a few pictures with my cameraphone but they're all crap. I'm always afraid to bring my digital camera into shows. I'd hate for something to happen to it.

SlowExposures - The SlowExposures exhibit went very well. I got many compliments on my photo and even sold a print! How exciting! I was hoping to sell the whole framed piece, oh well. Now I have a huge framed photo of a cornfield to hang in my home. :)

Workshop - The Dave Anderson Workshop was very good to me. It helped me realize that I need to figure out a focus for my photography (haha, a pun!) and go for it. I need to step out of my comfort zone and take chances. Stop being so safe and pretty. So lately I've been doing a lot of reading on photography and trying to learn all I can about the photography I want to do. Let's hope this leads to something good!

Oh yeah, the photo at the top of this post is taken with my Holga. I took it off the shelf for the first time in years and took some shots in Atlanta. I don't think it's the best photo but it's an interesting one and I do love the light leaks.
