Sedona in the Spring

SF Hospital

Downtown Flagstaff. South (wrong side) of the tracks.

I had the awesome experience and pleasure to take the final class for
color photo printing that would be taught, at Northern Arizona University.
This printing process of creating photographic prints steadily went the
way of the buffalo due to the new and overwhelming wave of digital
photography. Digital printing and processing still have a long way
to catch up to the widely available quality that film and chemical prints
were known for. Digital photography is here to stay.

The knowledge I gained from learning the complex processes involved
in color photo printing process helped me understand theories on color
and printing processes.

The Color Images are from the color printing class.

The blue photos are cyanotypes from the experimental photography
course at NAU.

Self-Promotional Lion Poster

I put this poster together. I've been working on my pen and brush and ink skills. Trying to figure out a process to render my detailed ink drawings. I have had this image of a big cat I have been insistently working on.

Fish Grotto sign

I took this photo at the Wharf.
Love the image of what seams to resemble Muddy-mud-skipper;
the typeface used; the colors; along with the segmented layout.

A very dated style.

1950's advertising era. Reminds me of John K's post on bold packaging:

The typeface is playful and clean at the same time.

Overall: simple, fun, and stylistic.
