Back After the Break

It’s been a while. I would have updated sooner, but the truth is I haven’t been making much work in the last two weeks. In some ways I needed a mental break after the completion of my “world of one” series. Plus I also really need to get my shit together so I might actually have a future worth looking forward to. Thus there was a solid two weeks in there where I wasn’t making any work, but eventually I started to feel like I was losing my grip on reality. Basically, I decided I just had to go out …

Travel Fail

I am really bad at traveling, and I just returned from a weekend trip to new york last night. I thought I was being smart by buying my boltbus ticket a few days early online. But apparently I suck at reading websites or something, because I bought a ticket for the wrong date. This was something I didn’t even notice until I was the last in line for my bus. So it was on to plan b) the chinatown bus (or what we used to call the “SARS bus”). While I was waiting inline I looked over and noticed how …

Fat Chair

It’s been a while since I shared some straight photography here. About a month ago I tried to shoot a photograph everyday for an entire month. But like a fat kid on a diet, I was only able to keep up the regiment for about two weeks before I stopped. Instead I just got lost in my editing for the World of One stuff I’ve been doing. I picked up my camera again the other day however, this was one of the first things that I shot.

Midnight Storms

Been having some trouble sleeping at night. But on a night like this, it’s probably more exciting to stay awake anyway. Currently trying to make some changes in my life and get my shit together. I’m making 1 drawing and taking 1 picture everyday now, in an attempt to push myself artistically (still hate drawing) and increase output. It’s dawned on me that if I wanna do a lot of the stuff I wanna do, i’m going to have to really learn how to draw sooner or later. Maybe if I ever draw something I actually really like i’ll put …

When in Doubt

Sometimes it’s good to revisit old ideas with what newfound knowledge you might have earned. I’ve been working all weekend on some new World of One stuff, and failing miserably at it. This is the first time I’ve failed making an image for this series (and is also reminding me why I’ve been so adamant about doing more). I think I know how to fix it now though so that really just translates to more work this week. It’s not even that the image came out bad, it’s just that I know it’s not as good as it probably could …

Faces on Shirts

Is it ever ok to wear your face on a shirt? Well, probably not. So I got my buddy to model my new tee’s instead. I guess it helps that she’s a chick and much cuter than I am. But alas I digress. Now introducing my newest creation: the Cranefaced Tee’s!!!! $26 Each shirt is going to be in a limited edition of 250. So you can be sure that you almost nobody else will be able to cop yo style (well, except for the other 249 people i guess…but who’s counting?). You can either pick one up through me, …

Fun House

I was scouting for potential World of One locations earlier today, when I came upon this awesome looking house. Looking at this, I would probably fail as an architecture photographer, but hey at least it looks pretty cool. I just got some T-shirts in earlier this week and will be putting them for sale online soon along with the posters. But for now, here’s the concept sketch: Check back later this week and I’ll have some cool shit up!

A Decade of Florox

In celebration of my crew’s 10th anniversary, we thought it would be a great idea to cram as many of us as we could into one epic photoshoot. This is by far the most members we’ve ever had doing the Florox pose at once. Special thanks to Andy who helped me come up with the idea for the shoot (or who possibly came up with the idea, i don’t remember), Julia and Emily for pressing the button, and to the Florox massive for being the most awesome and real friends ever. For those of you who don’t know, Florox is …

Posters For Sale!!!

Posters are in!!! As promised, I will be selling 20 x 24 posters of my “Cranefaced” self-portrait all numbered and signed for $35 +shipping/tax. Feels kinda weird to be saying that i’m selling pictures of myself, kinda makes me feel like a douche bag. I think generally when you see a person standing next to an oversized photo of themselves, they are either: a) a dictator or b) a narcissistic bastard. Then again, an artist is a bit of both i guess. Each image will be signed and numbered by myself there are 250 in all in this edition and …

Morning Glory

After a long night of drinking, as I finally laid down to rest in my drunken stupor this was what I saw before me. Those few moments in the morning when the sky starts to lighten, but the street lights are still on. As soon as I saw it I knew immediately that I had to take this picture, or I might not get chance ever again. I’m glad that I did. I actually haven’t been shooting a whole lot of work this past week, mostly I have been designing some stuff that my friends might actually want/be able to …
