Cat In A Chair

Cat In A Chair

Graphics, Photography March 1, 2019

Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan, at the time, this neighborhood cat would periodically enter through a small window opening of my upstairs apartment in an older house. Shelter from rain, comfortable seating and an occasional helping of tunafish from a can served to reinforce a friendship over time.

A variety of items featuring this graphic design are available in my galleries at Redbubble and Fine Art America.

Dog In The Window

Dog In The Window

Graphics, Photography February 10, 2019

Many moons ago, in a distant land referred to as Kalamazoo, a slow, low-to-the-ground basset hound named “Flash” posed for a picture in an apartment window.

He was a cantankerous dog, rather dim-witted and liked to howl loudly. And, if you looked at him in a manner he deemed inappropriate, Flash would express his displeasure rather quickly by means of a moderately-firm bite. Ouch!

How this graphic design came to be is somewhat unusual.

I took this photograph in 1997 using Kodak film in an analog camera. Several years later – probably 2005 – I owned a simple digital camera and a more ‘modern’ computer with creative software. At that time, I had the idea that I could take a digital photograph of the film negative, and use it in some fashion as an element of a future design. That point in time was this morning.

I used both Abode Photoshop & Affinity Photo to craft this graphic design, now available for purchase in the following galleries:

Rooster In The Morning

According to this rooster, it’s time to wake up. Better do so now, so as not to get on the wrong side of this ornery, rather disruptive character! Haha. Now that you’re wide awake, why not visit my gallery at Redbubble to discover some fun gift and apparel items featuring this comical design. I’ll put on some coffee…see you soon!

Nefthus

Nefthus

Photography, Structures July 1, 2018

I took this photograph in 2006 of our cat, Nefthus, who would frequency follow the sun around the house throughout the day, basking in its warmth. This particular scene from the office includes a desk (left), the shadow of venetian blinds (cast from right to left), a second set of taller venetian blinds (foreground, used as a room divider), and Nefthus, slumbering while sporting a recent hair cut. I thought that positioning the camera at an angle would serve to add interest, as well as changing the picture to black and white. See more in my gallery at Fine Art America.
