I’m going to begin a little exercise, which is to occasionally post things that I’ve created. They may be images from my archives, designs I’ve done, or little objects I’ve hacked together, but the hope is to slowly build a little portfolio that I look back on. I’d like to remind myself every so often that I know how to push things across the border from the dreamt to the real.
Let’s start off lightweight with an image I quickly Photoshopped. Below is my new-dad friend Amos with his little one, Emerson, Photoshopped as a submission to the blog Babies With Laser Eyes.
Okay, complete change of direction. Strangely enough, while looking at the above image, I realized it echoes a pencil drawing I made in high school:
This was made back in my comic-book-drawing days. I know this is a bit of a creepy juxtaposition with the laser eyes thing, but just so you know, the drawing was not meant to be morbid. The idea rattling around in my young mind at the time was that death is something that we learn to fear, and that there might be something joyful in unlearning that fear.
