It's too small. I'd really like to see a bigger image. (Now that I have that out of the way...) It's an interesting pose. I love the in...

It's not really black and white, is it? I can see that the door in the background has a bit of sepia color in it, and I'm wondering why...

The photo looks a little grainy to me. It might be just that you're using a low resolution camera, and good cameras are expensive. If s...

Upper Arm
I photographed a body builder, and then drew it. It's part of a series that I want to use to illustrate acupuncture points.

I assume the pears with teeth was an April Fools Day joke. Ha ha. 

I just thought it was really annoying to browse DeviantArt (which I do several times a day) and see nothing but pears with teeth everywhere...everywhere. What's hot? Pears with teeth. Popular 24 hours? Pears with teeth. Undiscovered? Pears with teeth. I was happy that at least the daily deviations didn't have any pears with teeth.

I actually went through my watch list and unwatched people who had submitted pears with teeth art (sorry). I love the huge variety of art here. I even love the drawings by bored ten-year-olds on lined notebook paper. I just think I don't ever want to see any more pears with teeth. For a while it was worse than the "points" spam. Today, fortunately, it's only about as bad as the points spam.

It's sort of like the thing where the UK Navy asked people to go online and vote for a name their new research vessel. And the name that got the most votes was "Boaty McBoatface." There are just times when something viral and funny isn't necessarily a good thing.

Sorry, I suppose that makes me the enemy of fun, but I never need to see another image of pears with teeth.
Neck Drawing
Ink wash, from a stock photo. The intention is to draw acupuncture points on top of this and the others like it.

The "3" is silent.

I'm old: really, really, really old. Most people think that disqualifies me from being any kind of artist. However, it turns out that the older you get, the more flexible your mind becomes and the less trivial stuff you care about. But I'll let that go.

Being so terribly ancient, I've done a number of things. I was a professional graphic artist for eight years in Southern California. We did a lot of packaging, so I've seen more dog food and vitamin labels than most people care about. Mind you, I was a "graphic artist" and not a "designer." I did more of the nuts and bolts kinds of things. I know how many points are in a pica and I know why 72 points didn't necessarily add up to an inch.

Towards the end of that career, there was this newfangled thing called the Internet. I left graphic design and became a computer programmer because I wanted more power to do cool stuff. I've been a computer programmer now for longer than most other Deviants have been out of high school. My web site is left over from that transition. It has games. But of course, they're really, really, really ancient games that no one has ever heard of like checkers.

I work in the oil industry, but I've never thought of myself as an oil guy. In fact, I'm a little concerned that I'm helping out in an industry that wants to rape the planet for money, but...it pays the bills.

I figured I can get out of this business, and leave programming, if I can figure out how to write books. I've done a small bit of fiction, but non-fiction seems more straightforward, especially for a computer engineer like me. To write books, I need to illustrate them. To illustrate, I need photographs. So, I've become something of a photographer. God help me.

About a year ago, something funny happened. I started raiding the local art supply store. I bought pencils, paper, clay, paint, glitter, glue, and anything else that looked interesting. And I started playing.

I decided that photography was fun and I started doing it for its own sake. And to do photography, you need to photograph something...or someone. I joined a web site for models and photographers and started looking at everything. I joined deviantArt. And then I realized that if you're going to photograph a model, you'll need make-up, hair, and clothing. So, I started making a costume. Costumes are fun.

I'll have to let you know how the story ends later.
