Ello, all! Haven'd done one of these journal things in a while, and there is so much to say! Soooo... what better time than now?

First off, I have to apologize to my watchers. I've spent the past week spamming your guys' notifications with all of my photos from last week's zoo trip. It's hard to find time to do them all at once, so it's been coming in waves when I have time and energy. lol and here's the fun part: we went again yesterday, so I've got more coming this week.

And as for what's coming, I'll have more stuff going up this week. I did my first model car in years last month, and would like to do some good photos with it. I've also been dabbling in some leather work and other fun stuffs, so I'll have more than zoo pics to share with you guys soon!

I wanted to say thank you to everyone who favorited, shared, commented on, and critiqued my work. I tried to respond to everyone, but just in case I missed anyone: THANK YOU! Any and all feedback, no matter how good or bad, is so greatly appreciated! There's nothing I value more as an artist than the honesty of my peers, because without all of you, I'd just have my opinion to go on which, at times, is far from sound.

Grant Hillebrand (AfricanObserver)
This photographer's man subject is life. The life of a South African citizen. The culture, the food, the fun, the happy, the sad, the real, the human, and the not-so-human. This artist's work really helps you not just understand, but to feel the people of South Africa.

Brenna (ParaIsBlack)
A visually striking artist, she uses soft yet catching colors in her drawings. With her subject matter ranging anywhere from abstract to mind bending to realistic, this is an artist whose work will make your life better... seriously.

Zoey Kunze (JuvenileMoppet)
This girl has taken an amazing collection of photos of her bearded dragons and a unique still life series featuring rubber duckies as the subject matter. Recently, she's started expanding out into nature photography, with a keen eye for the small details that most would overlook. This is definitely an artist to watch!

pikeyPIE
This artist has a very interesting and unique style. He swings from high to low, light and awesome to wretched and beautiful. The darker side of pikeyPIE's work is chaotic and maddening, but incredibly awe-striking.

Artist | Hobbyist | Photography

I love seeing the world in all of its glorious and wretched beauty. I love sharing that view with others. That is what got me interested in photography. With a single photo, the beauty of Gaia can radiate. With a single photo, the good and evil of men can be seen apart from one another and a part of one another.

I also dabble in drawing, painting, ceramics, woodcrafting, leather working, etc. etc.. If it keeps my hands busy and my mind sharp, I enjoy it. I'm self taught in my arts, having no formal training or education. My mind and body demand that I keep busy, therefor I am always learning new things and experimenting with new ideas and art forms.


On this page, you may also find some work that my friends have done for Algeri Arts!
