I recently took a trip to Puerto Rico to photograph these ladies during a concert they gave at the Conservatorio de Música de Puerto Rico. I had never been to the Caribbean before and so it was a great chance to visit a totally foreign place. Well, I say foreign, but it’s actually an extremely easy place to visit since it’s a US territory. No passports, no customs, most everyone speaks English and they use the US dollar. The trip was limited to the capital city of San Juan, but there is a lot to do and see there. I’d love to head back again sometime and see the rest of the island.

This is a panoramic photo of Lawrence, KS taken from the viewing deck of the Oread hotel. I think it really shows how green it is around here in the summer and the KU Campus really is beautiful. If you have the chance, head up to the top of the hotel (drinks start at 4:00) and take it in yourself! It really is impressive.

I was looking for an excuse to try Photoshop’s photomerge function and was pretty impressed with the job it did. Not flawless by any means, but it found and blended the content as well as I ever could by hand. My only complaint was that it was a 360 panorama, but I wasn’t able to tell it where I wanted the center point to be. This is probably a better tool to use for compositing 2-3 photos together within a smaller viewing angle.

Birthdays are always a good time to step back and take a look at your life. So today, anemia as I close out my 31st year, page I thought I’d create a couple of extremely exaggerated and largely imagined infographics, just for fun! As an experiment, I thought it would be interesting to try and look into the future and tell a story using only a chart.

Bean Sculpture in Chicago

I just got back from a trip to Chicago last week, page so I thought I’d do a quick recap of what all I did, hospital mostly as a log of the trip for myself. It was my first time to Chicago and I had a great time seeing some of what the city has to offer. I didn’t shoot a ton of photos, order but got a few I thought I’d share here.

Monster web header

One of my best pals and programmer extraordinaire Greg Aker asked me to come up with some monster illustrations for the header of his web site. It was a lot of fun because it’s not the kind of thing I get to do often. We had talked a while back about doing a “seasonal” header to help keep his design fresh year-round and so I’ve been slowly cranking through them for him to use! So far, erectile I’ve got Winter, Spring and Summer.

If you have an interest in web development, CodeIgniter and CMS systems like Django and ExpressionEngine, you need to check out Greg’s site. He’s a total master!
