Foreboding 1800's Staircase
i just realized that i also missed March's photo upload as well. I walk by this scene everyday I head to work, and have always wanted to capture a photo of it. I guess playing catchup helps a lot. It exists in a really strange space too. and I wish that there was a way of taking vertical panoramas. Below the staircase is an overgrown courtyard below street level that is fenced off.

What is your purpose?
Probably one of the hardest photos I've taken, and I still don't feel it's the best photo of this subject that I could have pulled off. This is literally just an abandoned telephone booth in the middle of a random field. Camera couldn't pull off the lighting that was necessary to appreciate this, so I did photoshop the lighting a bit. I'll probably make another attempt at this some other time when the opportunity arrises again.

Urban Mural at Dusk
I completely missed out on any chances to explore photo opportunities during April, so I'll probably be add another photo to the collection this month if I come across a sweet opportunity. 

One of the many Murals in my town, but this one really stood out to me when the sun started to set. It was just one of those moments of being in the right place at the right time of day and year to get this image. Not everyday that the sun sets down this alleyway enough to light the mural's gloss coating. Not to mention the wall this mural is on gets changed every few months.

Taken on my camera phone at ~7:30pm. The only adjustment I made was up the saturation a bit to compensate for the color muddling that the sun's glow does to the capture.

OC Commission: Kush Sisters with Cats
Yet another commission for Lapqmzla :iconlapqmzla:'s OC's Plushberry and Blueberry Kush. This one was pretty challenging and went through a couple scrapped attempts at first before moving onto this finished piece. The drafting on this was the largest task of all. I think half of my work on this was dedicated to making sure the perspective was correct; no daunting feet, but it was very time consuming. This held especially true with the mason work on the wall. 

I got the inspiration from the coffee houses that I frequent when I work on these kinds of projects, and Lapqmzla graciously agreed on the idea as well. Don't think that I'll be replicating this kind of work load again anytime soon, but I'm rather proud of it.

Wine Label: original painting
Told you I would probably post the original.

This is the original piece that I made for my wine label. It came out a little more vibrant than I wanted it to be for the actual label so I toned it down a bit before going to the printer.

I did a few things to this piece outside of the usual pen and marker too. I switchecked off of Bristol board for starters, and I made subtle highlight edits wish paint and brush. To top it off I actually did some outlining in specific areas with gold pen. The same gold pen that I used with Lyra Heartstrings. Also, the paper is a different beast altogether, having to watch how much I overlap and blend.

Holy shit, I've been out of the loop since August and it shows in my skills. I've worked as a Wine Cellar Worker since August and we recently wrapped things up on October 20th. Let me tell you, I've never learned so much or felt so accomplished on a professional level as the time I have spent as a Cellar Worker. I mean, other than the work that I create and post on here that is. There's something about this rather thankless job that makes you feel like a secret badass when you leave work and see a bunch of frilly winos going at your product. Most people don't know what goes into making wine, and I can tell you that its a few things. It takes patience, courage and paranoia to make a really good bottle of wine. So PCP... you need PCP in the Cellar and it will show in your wine. Take from that what you will. 

Every job I've had up until this point has been filled with regret. Regret for taking the job, regret for settling for a job, regret for not taking another job, and it compounded as time at said jobs went on. Not once have I felt like I was in a place where I needed to be professionally until this season of Cellar Work, and the best part of all of this was how crush season ended. The entire crew made it out to the courtyard where we were hammering back 5 growlers worth of beer from the local brewery, eating our hearts out, and mumbling about how much we loved each other and wished them well. Tell me, when's the last time you could say that you, your coworkers, your higher ups and your bosses all got hammered at the end of a shift? 
Seriously, I'ld love to hear your story. Leave your comments below :iconarrowdownplz:

And to top it off, where I worked was a larger community of vintners that expanded to where I lived, so even my landlord was an amateur winemaker. The best part of my living arrangements was that I could say that I was a pivotal influence on his latest vintage which he exclaims is his best wine yet. Won't be ready for a few months, but I can wait. 

Enough about the past, lets talk about where I'm headed. As of November 7th, I'll be accepting commissions once again. I already have a couple early requests from before I became a cellar worker that I had to put on hold, and they will take priority. You know who you are cause I will contact you shortly. Also, if you live in Australia, now's the perfect time to commission me since I will be flying there for a second season of Cellar Work this coming February. That way I don't have to charge you for the overseas shipping cost, and won't have to freak out about whether or not it will get to you. To everyone else, look forward to a few new non-commission works to come.
