Eerie Treo 600 photo

Treo 600 photo of the artist and a catThis picture was taken by my wife using a cameraphone. Because of the poor quality of the photos an artistic effect is created. Myself and our youngest cat, Leo, are pictured looking into the camera. The darkness of the picture contributes to the interestingness of the work. The work was created on December 27, 2003.

Painterly image project

Digital Media, second semester, final project, image galleryThis project was created for my very first Digital Media class while I was a student at UNO. The image creation included use of Photoshop to create a piece of art for use within an image gallery inside of a final project. I used some filters in Photoshop to create almost all of the image. The work starts with random drawings in a Photoshop file. I was instructed to create a Web site to house works created over the course of the semester including my first use of video and Shockwave. I will post those works at a later date. The work was created on March 13, 2001. Click through to see a larger version of the work.

Horrid floating ad creation

A while back I found this tutorial on a way to create your own extremely annoying floating flash based advertising. I just read an article about this on the new FlashInsider blog and thought I should post this link as well.

Cat walk movie project

Cat walk movie projectThis Flash movie was created for a Digital Media project as part of one of my art classes at UNO. First I used a miniDV camcorder to record the scene. Then I imported the video to Premiere. Next I exported the video to frames and used a Photoshop batch process to edit every frame and optimize them. After that I imported the frames to a Flash movie and preformed an opmtimize bitmap function on each individual frame. I added the play/pause functionality and published the movie. The work originally was part of a larger project relating the idea making process to the artist. The project had a navagation based on my face and the movie would appear with a mirrored verision in the lenses of my glasses. I will post another part of this project later. The work was created during the Spring semester 2002. Click through to see a larger version of the work.

Strange chicken in a tree

Strange chicken in a tree photo from public parkThis picture was taken in a public park’s bird sanctuary. My wife and I had decided to take a walk in the cold Jefferson Parish air of south Louisiana that day. Of course we took our brand new digital camera that her father gave us for Hanukkah. While wandering the park we saw this strange chicken in a tree with an odd poof of feathers on its head. Needless to say, I snapped a picture of this modeling bird for posterity. The work was created on December 24, 2004. Click through to see a larger version of the work.

Lined cool color project

Digital Media, first semester, third project, part oneThis project was created for my very first Digital Media class while I was a student at UNO back in 2000. The project objective included use of Photoshop and a Stylus to create a piece of art. I used some filters in Photoshop to create a strange background. Additionally, I “scratched” in lines and used blurring to create and illusion of space. The random colored pixels were brought into focus by using the sharpen tool to tie the left and right edges of the work together. The work was created on April 15, 2000.

Also expect the look and feel of this site to change as I get a cool theme installed.
