"Book It" art show.

my piece in the "Book It" art show.


tonight was the opening of the "book it" art show at pinkghost. (that up there is a close-up of my piece for the show.) a lot of the pieces there were really creative and interesting. it was cool to see what people created, having a hardcover book be their only criteria. i was happy with my submission and i hope that other people like it as well. these are some of my other favorites from the show (click for bigger):

bright.


i took this shot over the weekend, while driving around looking for graffiti. i used to to shoot buildings/doors/windows/bits of architecture all the time. i miss that!! i need to make a conscious effort to get back into shooting like i used too.



i used to take pictures like these below, all the time:

BP KILLS.


considering the crisis and disaster in the gulf right now, with apparently no end in sight, i thought this graffiti stencil i found was very appropriate!!

Tentacles.

tentacles & suckers.


i saw this in the seafood case at whole foods over the weekend. as soon as i saw it, i reached for my point&shoot camera that i always keep in my purse and snapped this picture. i've been fascinated by octopuses for a while now. i think they're incredible creatures and i love their tentacles and little suckers! right after taking this shot, i was informed by the whole foods employee behind the counter that photography was not allowed. LAME!

Graffiti.

RETNA.




i went driving around wynwood this weekend and got some good graffiti shots. it'd been a while since i'd been down there so it was nice to see some new murals and nice to see old ones still going strong. i will never tire of huge murals like these. good, talented art like this never ceases to amaze me!

a couple of days ago, thanks to a blog post by my friend danny brito, i found out about an open-call art show at pinkghost opening next week. NEXT WEEK! this group show is a bit different for me than the other group shows that i've been in before. this time i didn't do anything photography related and instead went the collage/mixed media route- something else that i also love. i also had two days to a) come up with an idea for the show and b) CREATE it! i'm always willing to participate in open art shows though- any exposure for my art is good exposure, no? anyway here is a sneak peek of my piece that i created. the show opens a week from today and i am excited to attend opening night and see everyone else's work!
