MORE BROWNIE!

Some more brownie love! This is my third roll, black and white iso 400. Not too pleased with the contrast, nor the exposures. I think I am going to stick to the iso 100 colour. I am working on a 400 colour roll now, with the aperture attachment. Should be done that soon!

This is a picture of the city from a place I love to visit called Humber Bay Park

A giraffe

I was bored at work today with all the rain that kept our traffic at a low. So I drew this. A mosaic of a mosaic.

New Ink

So a couple days ago I got my second tattoo... But you could say it's my third since my first tattoo was two separate tattoos. One could also say that now, I have 25 tattoos, but you'll see what I mean once you see the tattoo.

I choose ITC American Typeface because it then made my skin essentially paper, almost branded by typewriter letter heads. After putting together the composite of them all sort of mosaic, it really makes it that much cooler. I love it.

p.s. the reason "i" and "u" and the "d" is duplicated once is because those letters are in harder to reach places being on my back and behind my ear.

The Guns of Brixton and other things.

Just some instant feeding through my music choice last night. The Guns of Brixton cover by Nouvelle Vague.

I also haven't posted any sketchbook updates in a while. Been drawing a fair bit at work when it's quiet.

I am also dropping off my latest roll of brownie hawkeye film today so I'm excited to see those.

I have come up with an attachment to modify my brownie hawkeye. Since the black and white film I get which I sometimes like is 400 speed. I made an aperture attachment to make the aperture smaller. So now with the next film I'm going to take double the pictures one with and one without. I will show the two differences (if it works) fingers crossed! For now enjoy the sketches!

If every letter in the alphabet had a colour associated with it.

Brownie more.

So since I now hate Henry's to a different degree, (since they never called me when my prints had arrived) these pictures have arrived well over a month late. HATE! lol

Regardless, I love the pictures. I was a little hesitant on using colour because I've seen some other brownie hawkeye colour film and it looked well too finished and new. Well I was pleasantly surprised when I got these.

See for yourself, all I can say is that so far it epitomizes summer for me.

The Big Apple

I'd love to say I've been doing a lot of work this summer, but that's not the case. Instead I went to NYC for my birthday haha. Really enjoyed myself, I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. I didn't really take my camera out when I was just wandering the city, but one day I did take it out, I made it work.

Enjoy.

This is the greatest building in the world. Say hello to the Seagram Building... So perfect!
