Here is a list of 10 great photographers that are harmful to the aspiring young artist. It's quite great actually. I've talked about a couple on this blog, actually. Not sure what that says.

Effigy of Agony

Ladies and gentlemen, I present the culmination of a many months work of work, successes and failures. These turned out so much better than I could have possibly hoped, and I am thoroughly pleased with the results.

After a huge setback with the printing of the metal plates, I was forlorn and depressed. The emulsion had failed, or some other part of the process had gone awry. I resigned myself to scan the failures and make the best of what I had to work with, creating digital composites. It took some time to get around to it, and meanwhile the plates continued to react chemically, as I had not bothered to fix them for the full length needed as I knew they were not viable. It's a good thing I didn't. The texture and discoloration are exactly what was needed.

On a side note, sorry for the lack of posts recently, the last few weeks have been ridiculously busy. I will hopefully do better in the coming days. But really, you should all just be happy with all the new work I've been sharing. I mean really.
