Convenience to quality

Convenience to quality
The transition from phone to camera

It’s no secret that I’ve used an iPhone to shoot toys since I started.
This decision was a conscience one.
It wasn’t based on fear.
It wasn’t based on the fear of having to hand over a big wad of money.
Not a fear of all them dials and settings. Continue reading Convenience to quality

Ninja Vanish!

Well, it seems President Business is at it again. Last week, 36 of my Brick Sailboat LEGO ninja pictures were removed from Redbubble by Redbubble at the request of LEGO A/S. They claimed ownership of these 36 pictures (but not my many other pics for sale on the site) and poof, they’ve been taken down.

You do what?

You do what?

Actually, what is it I do?

I’ve been asked why I do what I do before. I’ve been asked how I do what I do before on Instagram. I’ve been asked who are my favourite figures. I’ve even been asked when is my favourite time to do it. But recently I was asked what I do, and the question threw me. Continue reading You do what?

Why? – Suppaduppa666

Why? It’s a simple question I’ve always answered in the wrong way.

“-Why do you do this, David?

– Mmm… I do this because I had a smartphone and I started taking quick pics of my  figures in order to have good references for drawing my comic-books. After a few weeks I realized that I had dozens of pics and they worked pretty well with a little caption. I started publishing them on my personal Facebook account and bla,bla,bla…”

ALARM SOUND *AHOOOO!!! AHOOOOO!!! AHOOOOO!!! Continue reading Why? – Suppaduppa666

I’m not a punk, how can I be?

Serious works with limited means

I grew up on a steady diet of punk rock.

Three decades have passed since I bought my first punk album, In My Head by Black Flag. My musical tastes have broadened and, some might say, mellowed. But my belief in the punk rock ethos hasn’t waned. Continue reading I’m not a punk, how can I be?

Why? – by Chris Rose

When I was invited by Shelly to write this ‘why?’ piece, I felt privileged but I also felt a sense of trepidation. I was reminded of being an 18 year old art student and when I was asked to explain the meaning behind a piece of work by a tutor. I managed to chat away about religious symbolism and that seemed to go down quite well. However, I also thought that meaning could be very personal to an individual. It can be interpreted differently by the artist or viewer, but each idea is equally valid. Continue reading Why? – by Chris Rose

Make it Seem by AliceinCleveland

The latest challenge is a hefty one. It calls for a total of four different photographs that require a good amount of thought. I was happy to receive it a bit before I headed out for a couple of days that were designated for nothing but exploring an unfamiliar town with a camera. I had all of these grand ideas for how this time would go. I was going to focus on my theme of “fracture.” I was going to figure out where I want to head with photography. I was going to really experiment with Lego Minifigures. I was going to have these wholly profound moments of inspiration and creative omnipresence and the results from these two days were going to be amazing.

Some of that even happened too. Mostly though, normal (not amazing) stuff happened. Continue reading Make it Seem by AliceinCleveland
