One of my dear friends, a very talented artist and brave traveler, Sofia Shelton recently took up cartoons. A couple days ago she created her first in a series of “internet trading cards”. Today I was the recipient of her tertium quid. Very cool! If you want to see more of her creations or hire an amazing artist for a freelance gig definitely stop by and peruse Sofia’s art. Some of my favorite creative work around from a truly wonderful person.
Alex and Taru of World Tour Stories put up a little post about my band, Jungle Fires. It was great to meet, and see them at our show. Check out their blog. They’re sailing around the world and sharing all kinds of wonderful things about their adventure.
Last year on a whim I decided to buy a Nikon FG film camera. Even though I’m a musician and if I have any creative expertise the majority of it lies there - it’s not always possible or convenient to create in a musical way so I in order to teach my hands and eyes how to do something new so I could create even away from my instrument and writing I picked up photography.
This was my first successful roll of developed film. The first two I had were exposed because I didn’t know take them out of the camera correctly - which was also a very frustrating experience because I had taken nearly three months to shoot the first roll and then a month to shoot the second. So after this roll I was determined to get it right.
These photos are from a Fall 2012 weekend visit I made to Brooklyn for a show I had with my band, Jungle Fires. During the trip we ventured around SoHo, Brooklyn for the show, Saturday morning breakfast at Le Barricou, and nights in Williamsburg.
Certain things God makes blatantly obvious: Things equivalent to being placed in an empty room with one large canvas, brushes, paints, and ample time. In the face of some situations in life where our overarching trajectories lead toward undeniable places ‘What to do?’ becomes a foolish question.
