Week two of this miniature photography project. Pictures are posted below and you can also view them bigger in the Vertical Photos & Horizontal Photos sections! Enjoy!
The timeless Macy's Day Parade. Football. Preparing and enjoying a feast with your family. Being thankful.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
Here it is folks. Part one of four of the introduction of new characters. The character that has the honor of being presented first is the crab. One day not too long ago while doodling, this little guy just crawled (no pun intended) into my head. Soon after, I tried out several versions and scenarios of this new fellow which are shown in the first two sketches below. The third image is the final rendition of the crab (..for now). Enjoy!
As promised, two new photographs are up for the first part of this four week process. One under Vertical Photos and one under Horizontal Photos. Enjoy!
Well, with this post you all will be able to form an idea of what to look forward to from I.D. throughout the rest of this interesting year of 2009.
For the next four weeks, each week I will do at least two posts. In the first (not necessarily the first one I'll do each week, just the first one I'm discussing) post, I will be introducing a new character. In the second post, I will be posting two new photos. This will start tomorrow, the week of November 16th, and wrap up on December 13th. Following that, the week of December 14th, I will do another post with photos. However, this time I will put up a much larger amount. During the duration of this five weeks, I might sneak in a few posts here and there as well (ex.Thanksgiving). Then, to conclude 2009, I will do some Christmas and New Years posts to wrap it all up.
That's all folks.
Rarely do I use this blog to venture away from I.D. topics but a special occasion occurred last Wednesday night that calls for a celebratory post. The New York Yankees won their 27th World Championship, showing once again that they're the most dominant sports franchise in history.
Yankee Stadium is only a 15-minute drive away from my place of residence and I have been a Yankee fan my entire life. However, it's been a tough and long nine years since the Yankees last won a championship in 2000 in the subway series against the Mets; whether it was the heartbreak in 2001 versus the Diamondbacks or the unbearable loss in the playoffs to the Red Sox in 2004. This year, the Yankees had a new momentum, team, attitude, and even a new stadium. You could tell this was a different team. Whether it was a big pickup in C.C. Sabathia or a small but still important pickup in Nick Swisher, all the pieces just came together this year. The hard work and patience finally paid off, and the Yankees went all the way topping it off with an exciting World Series. Matsui had the highest batting average in World Series history + tied (missing only by a few feet) the record for most RBI's in one world series game. Mariano (Rivera) was unbelievably dominant throughout the entire playoffs as well, proving (as if there was any doubt) that he's easily the greatest closer of all time.
Congratulations to the entire 2009 New York Yankees.
And to keep this post somewhat I.D.-related, here's a celebratory drawing following the text. After that is more championship images to look upon.
(*Side Note - For once, none of these pictures are mine. Credit goes out to whoever posted these great historic flicks.*)
After I made the Halloween post the other day, I decided to do a canvas. I haven't done a canvas in a really long time after such a long run of them (mostly last year). Well, I'll actually delve into this matter briefly. The reason I did this was because I wanted to try new mediums and experiment with other options, cross current boundaries if you will. That's important, not just to art but to anything you do or life in general. Always try new things and experiment for you should realize that if you put your mind to something there are no boundaries to what you can truly achieve. Your imagination is powerful enough to detonate any walls or obstacles in your way.
Enough rambling, back to the point of this post. The canvas is based off of one of my personal favorite Halloween shows/episodes. The episode I am referring to is It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. To me it is a classic Halloween episode. Anyway, in one of the scenes, when Linus and Sally are waiting for the "Great Pumpkin" on Halloween night, Snoopy arises from the pumpkin patch. For some reason, I just liked the visual from this stopped capture..
..and decided upon trying a spoof of it. Posted below is the final product. Pretty happy with how it came out. Hope you all enjoy as well.
