Bad Idea

I really had a good time at ConvegeSouth in Greensboro this year. It was my first time at a conference. I don't have a company or any product to push but I did want to hand something out to people I talked to. In Lieu of handing out a business card I thought I would be clever an screenprint a little something. Spent a few hours working on it and thought people would appreciate something different. As I drove into NC A&T campus I started thinking about my print. As I parked more thoughts went through my head. I questioned both should I have printed this in the first place and seeing as though this thing was talking place at a prodominatly black school my clever idea was now looking less so. The one print I handed out was quickly folded and put into a pocket. I see the Confederate flag as nothing more then nice design. But given the place I now wish I had done something else.

Fall Foliage

The leaves were not as vibrant this year. Maybe because of the lack of rain. But this one was something else.

Fabric Study

In my drawing class we are concentrating on value at the moment. This was done using vine charcoal. You can lay down thick areas of charcoal then use a dry eraser to lift or reduce the dark value depending on how much pressure you apply to the charcoal.

Saturday Keynote

Elisa Camahort was such a joy to listen to. Upbeat and inspirational I could have sat there for a couple of hours listening to her.

My first panel discussion

This was the first thing of this sort I have ever been to. When done well they are highly inlightening as I found this one to be. We agree to disagree was very liberal in tone. That the two panelist Ruby Sinreich and Chris Rabb echo my mostly liberal views a conservative voice would have added more of a give an take to the talk. But insightful thought is always fun to listen to. The moderator Dan Conover was one of the people I talked to at CS.

Greensboro NC

Snapped this photo after leaving ConvergeSouth...I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I'm not much of a schmoozer and find social situations a little bit of a challenge. But I didn't throw up on anyone so all in all not a bad time for me. Thanks to Dave Slusher for speaking so highly of the event. Will try and go next year.

You spin me right round baby right round.....

Apple Phone Show

I have enjoyed this show. I have appreciated Scott Bournes critical look at the iphone. I was afraid this show would be nothing but "it's great because Apple made it" But that is not the case. Andy Ihnatko is fast becoming one of my favorite podcast hosts to listen to. I myself don't own an iphone
but if someone from the Apple Phone Show should happen to think I should I would be a happy guy.

Magazine in Borders

Took this photo at Borders in Faifax VA.

River walk screenprint

This is a screenprint I did for Dave Slusher for his 40th Birthday. I took the photo then opened it in photoshop and broke it down to BW.

podcamp NYC print

I'm thinking of doing a screenprint for the next podcamp NYC. I attended the last one and had a good time.

I should stay home...

Every time I go out I see something I want. Not need just want. I like this Sony but don't like how there is no focus ring. You focus by touching the screen. The good thing is I can't even afford the battery for this thing.
