These are either inspiring images or artwork that I want on my walls, when I finally get a place that has more of them!

Asha and Hex
Just posting something to show that I am indeed still working, just not sure how valid a place DeviantArt is for my artwork anymore. 

This is one shot from a delightful recent shoot with these two models, Hex Hypoxia & Asha Etch. Until I decide how many more shots I want to put up on here, you can see more at my Model Mayhem page:

An interesting "assignment" as part of a portfolio renovation project, to recreate an older artwork using your current skills and knowledge. The top one was done in 1996, not long after discovering Photoshop for the first time (version 5, I believe). I think it shows. OMG filters and effects! 

It was done before digital cameras, so I had to dig out the original photo and rescan it, so it's of a lot lower resolution than I'm used to. 

I already have to stop myself from working current artwork to death as it is, so I had to stop before going overboard here too. You ultimately can't rewrite history, or redraw it, rather. But I'm pleased to see that I have improved over the years.

Surprise new picture! As part of 20 day portfolio renovation project, I had to create a new piece, and since I haven't had a recent shoot, had to go back into an older one for "outtakes." I like the pensive and dark quality of this one compared to most of the other shots with her.

I have been artistically-inclined for as long as I can remember, and hope to remain so. Sadly I have not yet found a way to make it work for me financially, or at least enough to make me less dependent on day jobs, which would of course give me more time to be creative! I have barely a few hours a day to myself these days.

Another obstacle is atmosphere - ideally what I need is a quiet, live-in artist studio where I have the extra space for my art and photography. Unfortunately here in the Boston, MA area, this is so far financially out of reach. I fully intend to find it though!

Most of my current work is more photography-based, but I intend to learn both Illustrator and my Wacom tablet to get back into drawing and bring it more into the 21st Century. Usually I would scan my drawings and work from there. Really an unnecessary extra step these days if you think about it.
