Mosaic Monday / Day Of The Dead Swap!

Ok, a lot to talk about today. I have been away from the blog because I have been in Philadelphia and New York this last week. I will have many posts about that trip later his week.  Before I left I received a wonderful day of the dead card from Christine Brallier and upon my return one was waiting for me from Rita Schelin. My off-line swap party  is coming up this weekend. I love all my swaps so far !!! Thanks so very much ladies, your cards will be in the mail soon. I promise.

This is so cool in person ... the milli is tiny and the teeth are perfect cuts.

I love this guy!The neck is cool and almost repeated in the brow ( nice work).
There is a casual symmetry here.

Next Monday I will post photos that I took of mosaics at Philly's Magic Gardens. Isaiah Zagar's work is so fun, it really transports you to a magical place. I know that sounds corny, but it is true.

I had like 6 pet portrait orders come in while I was out and I still have a handful to finish up from late October. If I can manage to get ahead of my work again I want to start on an art project that is swimming around in my head from my time in New York. I shot a lot of dogs on the streets of New York and I want to turn them into very artistic Wacom illustrations eventually. The first step will just be editing and sifting through the images. I shot all of them while on the move, some were sneaky blind shots where I did not even look through the view finder. Some shots have interesting blur due to either my movement or the dog's.  Some of my blind shooting resulted in shots of blank sidewalk when my aim was bad. I will post a few below that have not been played with yet in PS.

Oh ...  I also met a very cool cyber pal in Philly, and her portrait of my Atticus was waiting for me when I returned home as well. I will post more on that meeting later!
