what's with the foo?

The current front door image was taken last year as a test of a new macro photography set-up I put together at the studio. It was literally the nearest small item at hand, so I used it to see if everything was in focus.

I'm a terrible photographer, and digital is the only way I could afford to waste so much film. While I occasionally manage to stumble into a decent image for my portfolio, I generally leave such tasks to the professionals and concentrate on simply documenting things for future reference.

The Foo in question was the first thing I shot with the new rig, and in my estimation it actually looked pretty good. More importantly, it amused me to no end.

The bulk of my childhood was spent on the East coast, land of Yankee accents and Chinese restaurants. Outside the best of them were a pair of proud Foo, ostensibly looking out for the owners and their patrons.

Children generally accept mythology as fact on first encounter, so the legends of the Foo led me to feel comforted by the presence of these cute but noble beasts. More importantly, as adorable as they were, I feared them just a little bit. They did, after all, tear interlopers into Mu Shu Person.

To this day I pat them on the head affectionately when I encounter them, hoping they know that I mean harm to no one beyond a bowl of Kung Pao Chicken.

the crazy lady down the street

art and gifts at nan's

My neighbor, sculptor Nan Phillips, has a worse problem than having become the local "cat lady". It seems she's developed a completely out-of-control infestation of artists.

Rather than spraying for these pests like a sane person, she's decided to allow them to run amuck. By this weekend, I imagine they will have completely taken over her lovely home.

new goodies

There's a couple of noteworthy additions to the site.

First off, the first official "art cameo" hit the portfolio today.

A big thanks to Jay Silber of Kestrel Ridge Forge, for loaning me some of the very artwork that inspired the finial pendant.

Hopefully, as opportunity presents itself, I'll be able to add more art cameos to the site.

Speaking of images, I've also added an image that I have lost, found, lost again and finally found once more. I'm posting it to keep it found as much as I am to answer the question "Can Mitsuro be cast in white gold?"

chateau des arts

Chateau des 
Arts x3

Last year, I became involved in a benefit for the North Texas Food Bank called Chateau des Arts. We had a great time and raised a metric ton o' cash for a worthy cause. I recently found out that The Morpheus Company has been invited back for a return engagement, so I'm working frantically to try and put together a body of work good enough to fool everyone into thinking I actually belong somewhere as nice as this show.

Do me a favor, show up.

It's a great event, an important cause and the host is a winery that serves a terrific glass of Syrah.
