Gallery Done, Reception Planned

So the room is oficially done, and we are really prout of it. If anyone is interested, we're holding a sort of opening for the gallery on August 12th at Dinosaurs and Roses upstairs in and around Studio #11. I hope to see people there!

The space is active.

I hope you'll check out our new gallery space at Dinosaurs and Roses located at 6029 W. Charleston. This is more of a soft opening as we're not fully operational there yet, but I'd love to hear what some people think. Here are a few photos from the (almost) completed space:

Oh! And I finished the logo, check it out:

Prints are in!

All our prints are in and I'm so excited. I'm going to Dinosaurs and Roses to prepare and organize. Deanna and I will be hanging after she gets off of work. Expect photos of the process. For now here are some of our little prints all sealed up:

Logo Continues, Gallery Coming Along

So here's an update on the logo frontier. The prints for our gallery come in Monday! So expect updates on that front soon.

The dark part is basically what I'll use as the mountains in the final version. The big guy was an attempt at adding a little silhouette to the design. We'll see about that idea.

This is where the room is at right now. We still need to add chair rail and a bit of furniture. Oh and the artwork.

Sierra Photography Logo

Wow, so Wednesday went by and I didn't update. That's not a good start.

However! I have something today. I've been working on a logo design for our revamped pseudobusiness thing "Sierra Photography". What I have I kind of like. I also have a chickenscratch layout of the room we'll be setting up on Saturday. If you know our work well enough you might be able to visualize how this will look.

Art Space in Dinosaurs and Roses

Coming soon is a cooperative display of photography from Deanna and I at a place called Dinosaurs and Roses.

Gabriel helped me take down the nails, staples, fabric, and wood pieces from the inside of the space the other day. Then we covered up the paint. This weekend Deanna and I will be painting and putting work up. So very excited! Here are a few photos of the process so far:

A Return.

(Check back every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for at least something from now on. Lets hope I can hold true to that!)

In the time since I was last frequent here, many things have occurred. Not counting sporadic updates, I was last consistent in the summer of last year. That’s a long time. Especially long if, in that time you get married, go to Jamaica, put offers in on houses, get an offer accepted, start a book, get an iPad, procure art space, sell artwork, and almost adopt a dog.

There’s a lot that happens from year to year, and if you know me in the least, this next part will make sense. Time gets mushy anywhere beyond a month or so back for me. (Facebook’s Timeline was a miracle. Whether Facebook has caused this mushy time is another post entirely.) So the update that follows will be like chasing a thread trough a complex knot:

I was engaged quite some time ago. I don’t know if I told the internet that. There are some really fantastic stories to be told of how I got to marry Deanna. Some of them are on here. But the grand culmination was a wedding. We did rock paper scissors to decided who had to say their vows first, we included a reading from a court case on marriage equality, we had a friend do our vows. Everything I wanted, we had. I only wish we’d had more time. Everyone told me it would be over in a blink. I didn’t believe them. They were right. But. We have photos to remember it. Here are a couple of those. Joey Allen did an amazing job. We got over 1500 photos from him, so there’s a bit of arduousness to it that I wasn’t expecting. I suspect, however, that our assertion that we too are photographers contributed to his offering a substantial bulk of documentation.

After the wedding we went to Jamaica. We were incredibly fortunate to have been able to do that. The experience was unlike anything I’ve ever encountered. I feel like I added years to my life for having done it. I recommend it, as it was surprisingly affordable. Here’s a couple photos that were more intentionally created. If you want the point-and-shoot type stuff you can friend me in Social Medialand.

Oh, and I own a gun, a holster, and a belt.

(Click the links to see the post once I’ve updated.)
I’m writing a book, it’s in process so I’ll update later.
I’m still working on the comic so I’ll update later.
I’m setting up an art space in a gallery so I’ll update later.
I have a super hero collaborative work coming up so expect some words on that.

I’ll end this with the assertion that this will become my more permanent blog. I know I’ve said I was switching like a half dozen times, but it doesn’t work. This blog fits me. Every time I come back to this blog I feel like I’m coming home. So I’ll be here, even if it doesn’t direct traffic to my website.

Renewed Efforts

In an effort to remain active in my photography, I've decided to become more active on this blog again. The one offered by Wix is surprisingly hard to use, so I will be attempting a standard Monday, Wednesday, Friday posting schedule. Let's see how this goes.

Once I get to a full computer expect a life update and maybe even a few images.
