Volunteer Works leads to photography playtime!
Mood:  happy
Topic: Art

Working out at the bird sanctuary has been incredibly rewarding.  It introduces physical activity where I wouldn't be up and moving otherwise.   The sanctuary is 3.5 acres and I haul water, food and cleaning supplies in a wagon all over the site.   In addition to my hair once again getting redder, I've noticed increased muscle tone (woot).  

Besides the physical benefits, it just feels good to be doing something like this.  Its totally not glamorous work, I've hosing out cages, raking them, sweating and come home covered in grit and the occasional case of poison ivy.   It's fun and challenging learning the birds personalities, given the ones that love attention some snuggle time and coaxing the shy ones to take a treat from your hand.   It has also become a playground for photography for me

 

 

It's been a joy and a challenge and I hope you enjoy my most recent photography.  I promise more updates to come once I get DragonCon decals and 2 other special projects out the door.

Exhausted! + code for freeshipping on art prints!

Hey folks!

Super tired, just got back from ApolloCon, it was a blast, the LARP was a success, the tabletop was small but went well and was interrupted by an astronaut (way cool).  The panel seemed to go well too, I already have ideas for ways to make it more fun next year should  I get invited back.

 I logged on tonight to check email, and discovered that the company that I'm selling prints through is offering free shipping on orders of $15 or more, offer expires July 6th at Midnight (PDT)

the code, should you need it is 4JULY09  the offer is good for U.S. Groundshipping only.

my print gallery can be seen at http://artcat.imagekind.com/ and the rest of my work (and decals) can be seen at www.texasartcat.com

As always, if there is a piece you don't see available that you want a print of, let me know!

Keep Flying!

Final Prep for ApolloCon
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: ApolloCon

Well,

 Final prep for ApolloCon is in full swing.  This year, the Houston Browncoats are going to host the consuite from 4-6 for a dessert party.  Myself and several other members spent quite a few hours baking yesterday :)  I even burned myself in the process (always fun till its your finger).

I'm co- gming a firefly based LARP, it runs from 9pm - 1am tonight.  The truck is loaded with all the gear needed for that.  I still have to load the foodstuffs, and costumes.  Yes, costumes!  This is my third year as a panelist.  I'm on the costuming 101 panel, so if you are in Houston and attending ApolloCon tomorrow come and check it out!  Also on Saturday is a tabletop Firefly based RPG!

Since I will be running various events at a convention this weekend, my responses may be slower via email than normal, but I will pick things right back up Monday morning.  Shipping on decals will be on hold till Monday, though any orders made up until this point are loaded in my car and will be droped off at the post office before the insanity ensues.   Things ordered through my printshop (imagekind) will be unaffected :)

 Keep Flying & Stay Shiny!

Very first blog entry deserves something important :)
Mood:  bright

Well, a very first blog here, I had better make it super special.

I got laid off at the end of May, so I have been working overtime trying to find the new job.  As one door closes, another one opens.. I just have to find it!

 In the meantime, its a bit of a blessing in disguise, I have always wanted to offer up prints of my artwork for sale.  What better time than now?

I'm super thrilled to announce that my artwork, starting with some of my photography are available for purchase.  Artwork to be added as time and weather permits, for me to take the high resolution photographs necessary.  I chose Image Kind because they had a solid reputation, and allow me to print at will, as such any prints available there will be open edition.

 In the meantime, I hope you enjoy my foray into photography.

 

  If there are pieces in particular you are hoping that I make available as prints, please chime in here.
