    It's a Black and White issue

    • Silentfilm
      My Canon camera shoots in a mode called whiteboard and I use it to take a good deal of portraits in the bathroom mirror. I like them because I wind up looking like a bigger cartoon character than I am in real life and it makes it very simple to illustrate myself into pieces I am working on.


    • Lips
      When I first moved to Los Angeles I lived in The Gershwin Hotel-- an experience that I will for the most part overlook. One of the great things about the place was the light in the hallways around 4:00 took on this heavy bright glow-- I borrowed Mister C's Canon Elph on a regular basis and shot a lot of portraits in the hallway. I am fascinated by old hollywood and I love the emotion in the still moments of a black and white film. Well that and I am pretty fond of being a drama queen.

    Just Drawn That Way

    • Royalteaseweb
      I'm not a photographer but I get paid to take pictures, I'm not an illustrator , but I get paid to do art... I'm not "talented" ...I'm just drawn that way.

    • Barry Gifford: Wild At Heart

      Barry Gifford: Wild At Heart
      Barry Gifford is my greatest modern muse when it comes to character development and story telling. Some of the one liners and chapter endings hang over my head for days. It's not just snappy comebacks it entirely romantic.It'd the most realistic love story I've ever read (*****)

      Bouncin Back
      Mystikal: Tarantula

      " I know you miss them so it's time to uplift them, you gotta pick the pieces up and find a way to drive on. I'll tell ya the truth so ya gotta see, Get back Satan, don't bother me. And that's the way it's gotta be. I really hope you look down and are proud of me."

    • Ryan Adams  - So Alive

      So Alive
      Ryan Adams : True Love

      This is a song about what it feels like no only to love someone but to realize you are in love with them. Love ain't always flowers and candy. It's about being there and having someones back...always.

    • The Rolling Stones - Backstreet Girl

      Backstreet Girl

    • Maroon 5 - She Will Be Loved

      She Will Be Loved
      Maroon 5: Songs about Jane

      This song reminds me about everything awful and treasured about being a young crazy girl in some sort of love...stading on corners and crying, running out on the front porch in the rain, kissing in parking garages. You never love like you do at 15.

    • Tom Waits - Fumblin With the Blues

      Fumblin With the Blues
      Tom Waits: The Heart of Saturday Night

      I wanna squeeze you but I'm scared to death I'd break your back... favorite new bump and grind.
