Here are two different images I manipulated. The first one was colorized and distorted. The second one was made black and white and given a grainy texture.

If It's Good For Britney...

The family had a great Memorial day weekend. After spending the last two weekends away, it was nice to be back in our own city. Since Jemma will soon be one, we felt it was time to upgrade her to a big girl seat.

But seeing how expensive these infant seats are, and that we did buy an SUV to have more space, we felt it was safe for her to ride in the back with her doggie.

After completing our hike, Jemma was in no mood for a nap, so we put her to work re-organizing the cupboards.

My Own Ferris Bueller Moment

While the title might not make sense. It will if you are a fan of the movie. I made this animation using a new program called Pulpmotion. Though none of the pieces shown are new, I think it is a cool way to showcase the pictures I've made.

This past weekend we took took a trip to the Bay Area to see family and to finally have a customary baby naming that had not happened. We had a great time, and Jemma's grandparents loved her to death. The only problem is that Jemma only cares to sleep in her own crib. The lack of sleep began to wear on us all, but that aside, the return warranty has expired so we are stuck for a while longer.... I knew we should have purchased the extended warranty. In any case, thanks Bubbe and Poppy for the great party you had in honor of Jemma. She might not always show it, but she loves you a lot.

I was playing around with Painter today and drew this with chalk and background done with a sponge. Since it was all done digitally, it really didn't use any of the above substances... so let's just pretend.

Put Another Coin In The Jukebox Baby

Playing around with Photoshop, I've created coinage for what I think is the cutest baby. My views can't be take too seriously because she is a product of me.

Take Me Out To The Ball Game

This past weekend we headed to Seattle to catch a Mariner/Yankee game at Safeco Field. It was a great time. We ate unhealthy food, drank some beers, and enjoyed the Mariners shutting out the Yanks. The sad note of the trip is that Jemma got sick -- who in turn got Jord sick -- which has left me to clean up a lot of snotty tissue.

Down by the lake shore

Yesterday was another great day here in Portland. Not because it was my birthday (thanks to my peeps for the shout outs), but because the weather has been gorgeous. Jemma and I took a walk along Lake Oswego and enjoyed spending some time with the ducks. Also added is a photograph I took while out on the walk.

Cartoony Fun

Today I found a tutorial on how to make images based on an English artist named Julian Opie. Below are images that I created.

A Walk In The Park

So yesterday, little Jemma and I paid a visit to Jamison Park in Portland, Oregon. If you've been there, you know how kid friendly and fun it is. If you are reading this from some far off destination, imagine lots of kids playing on concrete that is slightly sloped and fills with water every 10 minutes or so. I like it for the hot dog stand, as Jemma ponders below why she only gets a few morsels of bun.

Take Me Out To The Ball Game

In honor of the nicest day yet in the city of Portland, Jemma is sporting an ensemble in honor of America's favorite past time. One day I hope she'll swing some real lumber (aluminum), but for today this miniature bat, made for a miniature person, will just have to do.

Peppermint Patty

I was playing around with shapes and colors the other day, when this image arrived. I think it looks like one of those peppermints that comes after your dinner at any local Mexican food joint.
