This is a tribute to one of the most photogenic men in the world. I decided to assemble this collection, not because he deserves it, but in order to expose his unique modeling talents to the world. Get ready world, here he comes.
Merry Christmas Brother Cody! You will be receiving this gift very shortly but in the meantime, here is a little preview. Because I put zero effort into wrapping it, I thought I would attach a festive holiday message. With just an ink pen and some simple computer paper I created for you the most beautifully wrapped gift under our tree.
Here it is nestled under our aforementioned, gaudy, overly trimmed tree.
Happy Holidays all!
While going through some old photos recently I stumbled on these gems. This is my cousin Clayton Robinson. I haven’t taken a ton of photos of him, but the few random shots I snap here and there always seem to come out crazy. I felt like I had to share his awesomeness.
Also as a quick demo for a motion graphics class I was taking, I made this little video using a deconstructed photo I took of him.
Recently Emily approached me with the photo seen above and asked if there was anything I could do to correct it. The photo is of her father Nick Fedorenko (number 76) during his days playing for Notre Dame in the early/mid 70’s.
I know the color correction is obvious, but the photos above are not large enough to show all the detailed damage I had to fix. So trust me when I say that I sunk some hours in this one. I also had to turn it around really fast because he planned to take it to show his friends at the Irish’s last home game this year.
Overall it isn’t my best photo restoration. But given the timeline and the level of difficulty, I am pretty proud.
Also it is currently signed by him and hanging in Mulligan’s, an awesome bar and grill in South Bend.
And that wraps up the second half of my 2 part promise.
This time of year, every time I see a a glowing jack-o-lantern I think of this character set I made. I call it Light Painter and originally created it for a Typography project as a Junior at CCAD. I made it by using a long exposure on my camera and “painting” each character with a flashlight in the dark.
It was a lot of fun to create but as with all my projects, I made it more difficult on myself by trying to do everything by myself in my very cramped bedroom at my parent’s house.
Last Thursday Emily and I took a trip down to Circleville, Ohio for it’s annual Pumpkin Show. Afterward, we got around to enjoying some Here is a slideshow of our adventure
