it all started on a cool friday morn, when i was laying masking tape on a sidewalk in front of my home. nothing extremely out of the ordinary. but the day was full of surprises.
1. the tape.
originally the intent of the masking tape on the sidewalk was to be a stencil for later images. after looking at the contrast between the tape and sidewalk created an interesting form. the fractured line adds a lot to the image as well, although the line is physically continuous, the edges and curves are not smooth. the unintended became welcomed.
this was interesting just due to the subject matter. anchors are normally found in water, but in this case the water was in the anchor. this became a little messy, the water ended up running under the tape a little bit. sometimes imperfections add to the piece rather than take away.
sidewalk chalk...nuf said. i miss the stuff
4. rope, rocks, and two shovels
this revolved around the rope (the backbone) of the anchor. i saw the rope sitting in my garage and got to thinking. the rocks came from my mom's garden (it doesnt look the same now...) and the shovels and the rope are my dad's.
there's probably some deep meaning to that i overlooked.
we spent forever trying to get those dang matches to light in somewhat the form of a fire. didnt work. we had a guy waiting to light it. another with the camera. myself covered in gas. still didnt work. but the matches did. it was fun experimenting with the gasoline. now our street is stained. gas does a lot of things. and it smells bad.
6. water bottles
another appropriate one. water. anchors.
leaves do not always cooperate. it took a while for me to get the form down. just to even see it, it took a while. so i asked someone to look at it from a new perspective. he figured it out. quick. ugh
i dont know what to say.
9. newspaper headlines!
perused the internet for a long time. it does make anysense. at all. but it may create a small story in your head.
10. the t-shirt
mixed experience. i used istock for the first time! i added the hair on the shirt, and the lack of hair in the form of an anchor.
originally i had it planned to get a picture of some hairy-chested old guy and then take out the anchor. but thats gross.
jesus christ is the best thing that has ever happened to me. deal with it. i am currently getting my degree in graphic design and then i am going into family/children's ministry. i want to go to africa. and new zealand. and northern california. and colorado.
i am pretty much sure im getting to go to philippines in a little while.
i want to snowboard more than anything right now.
i serve the greatest King.
