Gone, but not idle.

Near the end of 2011, I once again found myself at the creative crossroads. Making a living at something you enjoy is the surest way to suck the life from it. Barring the occasional favor to friends and clients, I put the camera away to collect dust. A lesson learned the hard way long ago. Sometimes it's better to walk away than grow to hate what you love.

Mind and muse shifted to the tactile. Melting metal, singed flesh, engine grease, bruised knuckles, and dust on the road. As the production designer for Wasteland Weekend, and one of the event's lead organizers, there have been no shortage of opportunities to put the creative process to a real challenge. Full scale post-apocalyptic sets capable of surviving the elements, functional installation art, and vehicles ready to roll on Doomsday.

Production is now in full swing for Wasteland 2013, along with a full agenda of projects, movies, video games, car shows, and theatrical performances. It just keeps getting bigger and better every year.

While much of my time is spoken for, expect to see more of me here on Deviant Art in the near future. Dusting off the camera for some new projects, and a return to some favorites, including a blazing series of new Sparks imagery. Just can't stay away for long.

It is sad that your camera collected some dust. I love your work and will love to see more when it comes.

Thanks. Dust is easily blown off. Still need to replace the lens filter that got slagged during the latest round of sparks shots, though. . .

Cold winter blew up many of the water pipes. The entire rig has been dismantled, and a vehicle construction bay built in its place. Probly no water this year. On the plus side, instead of water, I can shower a 40 foot area in sparks now.
