20171011: Party Time, Just Here for the BOOs!

OK first of I must say thank you to the StoryBlocks artists. I use a lot of graphics from that graphics site in this piece… (but twisted the snot out of a lot of them too)

But YES, I did have a lot of fun with this title:

“Really I am only here for the BOOs!”

My Halloween poster to get people thinking of having fun!

20171011 Here for the Boos poster_FB

Yes, I may still play around with this, but at close to 20 hrs of over all work on my end…

Time to share the laughter!

Party Hardy Folks the world shall end some day, why be sad??

20170922: What I left behind to MOVE forward! My new apartment vs old

I recently moved out of my old Mexican apartment for the past 20 months.

It has been a trying time to be there & living here!

20170824_112405

Here you can see the foot of my bed, the desk and some of the stuff piled up waiting for me to find a place to sort through & see what was still good after the Dec. 2015 auto accident.

20170824_112349

The head of the bed, rain water drip catcher over it, blue water bucket for purifying my drinking water. That “white card stock” by the head of the bed was to slow down the mice & cockroaches that would run over my face as I slept.

So yes, folks this is what I did not want to show as I lived there. I do not like pity.

I worked to find answers.

20170824_112923

The small windows in the door, like my jail cells, not light. But sometimes a little is better than none.

20170824_112530

The corner of the desk to the door, not much smaller/bigger that one of my past jail cells too. The moving blanket was for winter, it would block out the colder air at night. Summer could hit 100F and was often 90F at 12midnight. So winter’s 55F was cold.

There was no sense buying any kind of heater, the other units used them and blew the whole complex’s electric box all the time.

20170824_112711

yes a tin roof with cement on top of it. Mexican construction yes that is a crack running down the wall.

My new place,

20170912 Work station & laundry moving

This is a week or so ago. The laundry pile is smaller now. But here is the front rooms, Laundry sink in the left corner, place to let dishes dry, book shelves and a workstation to train people at.

20170916_121540_FB

20 months later I am open for business “Locally”, sign on the street. Internet installed.

I currently have 7 different calendars to offer for sale on the street. Yes, just like an ordinary Mexican, selling in front of my house. I have even located some “wire racks the locals use to display their products on that I can use.

And a sign by my patio doors,

20170916_121339_FB

Notice the cut step of the stairs… PLEASE DO NOT ARRIVE HERE DRUNK OR ON DRUGS THAT IMPAIR YOU!

That is the area to step into my entry! ha ha… once again the “Gods” have given me a place that is hard to attack!

20170922_165619

Inside the NEW apartment, my workstation, and the reverse view. A studio for photography.

20170922_165449

My bed has some legs I had made for it after moving in too.

20170922_165729

& I even get to hang my night panorama of London!

20170922_165808

by the way, yes this is my chair… and you can see even in the new apartment the sleeping bag is hanging out of it!

(I ran around the old apartment trying to figure out where the 2nd warm sleeping bag was, till I stopped to straighten up the chair and remembered I used it to “stuff” the chair!

20170824_112756

So the next time some one tells you not to TRY, just remember that I came here NOT SPEAKING THE LANGUAGE, not having any friends, very little money, and quite a few people wanting to steal from me. PLUS no ability to return to USA other than to go to prison for BEING A WHISTLE BLOWER with corruption charges on the USA court system & a threat of death if I ever ENTER A USA COURT!

A one way ticket into Mexico & I Won!

20170718: New Toy! Graphic creative Fun!

Print

OK, this is just to show what kind of silly “Far Out Design” abilities I have here.

A simple logo of elements or a a special wreath of some design is all possible.

I just got this and was playing around last night, I have 1000s of elements to use, or can create to use my own “special elements” in this program.

Several setting of how many times the pieces are copied around the circle too so while this is 6 sided, 4 or just 2 is possible .

 

Woman and rain shower

And yes, they can be transparently added to other images.

sorry I just happen to love the overall of this image… the idea of adding some words in the banners is just too obvious to me & the fun of these flowers in this arrangement, well I am a nature & landscape photographer!

I also can do video editing & creating, while this piece IS NOT finished, it is a sample of what I “TAUGHT” myself in just 2 months of using Adobe After Effects for the 1st time in Jan 2017.

I used Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Premiere Pro, & Lightroom to create this creative vision.
