Urban Family Dog – All Pink

I was playing around with the iPhoto export feature late last night. An unbelievable simple way to make some music videos using live performance photography. Just need to figure out how to get the right imagery at the right place in the song.

I've uploaded to Facebook, and the image quality is quite nice. Facebook's transcoder is amazing.

Urban Family Dog “3-Finger Charlie” on Soundcloud

I was just playing around with the embed feature from Soundcloud. "3-Finger Charlie" is a funky CD I produced, engineered, co-wrote, designed and performed on in 2001.

Spring Fling 2011

Last weekend I completed "Spring Fling 2011", a photo collage art project featuring all 27 of my son's first grade classmates. Just before Thanksgiving my brother-in-law and I photographed the children in the classroom. I explained my job as an art director for advertising, and told them that they were all "Talent" or "Models" for my project.

Slideshow presentation of creative process to the class.

This morning I went back to unveil the final product via a Big Screen Presentation complete with music. I described the "client presentation" process, and told them they were the clients. They were very good clients, since they liked everything. I gave them each "leave behinds" of an 13 x 19 archival giclee (archival poster print suitable for framing) and a personalized 5x7 image with a link to this post. It is really fun how excited the kids are when they see themselves on the screen for the first time. They were very well behaved, though, as Mr. Grass, the principal, sat in on the presentation.

This is the final installment of a 4-part series. Last year I created a fall scene named "Fall Fun 2010". Two years ago I did a summer scene called "Summer Break 2009" and three years ago a winter scene titled "Snow Day 2007". Each artwork featured a castle to represent the school name, Castle Heights.

Fall Fun 2010

Monday night I completed "Fall Fun 2010", a Gap-like art project featuring all 23 of my son's kindergarden classmates. Just before Thanksgiving I photographed the children in the schoolyard. I explained my job as an art director for advertising, and told them that they were all "Talent" or "Models" for my project.

It was challenging to fit so many people into such a small space. Blame that on the state budget. Number two son, Miles, is featured jumping into a pile of leaves.

Today I went back to unveil the final product via a big screen presentation complete with music. I described the "client presentation" process, and told them they were the clients. They were very good clients, since they liked everything. I gave them each "leave behinds" of an 13 x 19 archival giclee (poster print suitable for framing) and a personalized 5x7 image with a link to this post. It is really fun how excited the kids are when they see themselves on the screen for the first time. They literally vibrate with energy!

This is part III of a 4-part series. Last year I did a summer scene called "Summer Break 2009" and two years ago a winter scene titled "Snow Day 2007". Only one season left!
