    There’s a comic book shop next to a magic the gathering/dnd type store that I go to. The comic book place runs a little publishing company and puts out a local artists comics. I was talking to the owner tonight, and he said every couple of weeks some people meet up and do a drink and draw night at the store. I’m planning on going next week, I’d probably be fucking lousy if I tried to draw drunk, I’d rather smoke some weed.

    Havent Yet Forgotten

    For my photo website, I have created a mission statement behind the content based on similar understandings of perspective and nostalgia. I’ve also been influenced by the term, “Negative Capability,” coined by poet John Keats describing the “capacity for accepting uncertainty and the unresolved.” Seemingly so, in both our art forms, I at least somewhat desire for the participants to feel nostalgia for a place they’ve never been or a face they’ve never seen. The understanding one brings from his or her own perspective and history, and how emotions come into play forms a unique conclusion for each person without being told what is occuring or an exact depiction of what it happening. I think it’s neat.

Photoshopped Selfie Sticks Replace Guns in Popular Movies


Been seeing a lot of these selfie stick images circulating the net recently and was trying to figure out where they were from. The image above, from Terminator (the best I’ve seen so far) was shared on Twitter last year. Since then a Tumblr has popped up called Guns Replaced with Selfie Sticks sharing similar images from popular movies, and it appears they take submissions. More images below.
