Summer Update 3

We walked/biked/drove-when-Heather-got-heatstroke from Minneapolis to Chicago. I'm so proud of us. The 16G card I bought specifically for the trip corrupted on the second day, but I ran file recovery on it and got some really really neat stuff. I'm very excited about it! Thank you again to everyone who donated. You're all marvelous!Here's my favorite one:

Pretty neat, huh? Since I have nothing to do for the next three weeks until school starts, I'll most likely be starting a daily blog with a photo and a story behind it on our Squat Gallery blog as soon as I sort through all of them.

My internship with Heidi is quickly drawing to a close. Check out the sweetness that is my editing skills on one of her recent photographs in these screencaps:



Fixing that cymbal was really hard (due to the circular pattern), and gave me the greatest sense of accomplishment I've had all summer. The sense after the walk was very much tainted by ligament pain.

I've also been researching for my senior project tarot deck. While I was browsing the internets and collecting inspiration for my own deck, I came across an artist named Carvin Rinehart, an Indiana painter and photographer who apparently has all the same photographic interests as me. He did his own tarot deck, and also does tableaux based in mythology, both biblical and classical. I'm so excited that I'm not the only one! Below is his St.Lucy the Martyr.

And this is the book I've been doing most of my research in. It's great. It's got sections explaining the Major Arcana in depth, the entire deck in depth, the tarot in relation to mythology, and all sorts of nerdy stuff. It's really helping.

I think this week I'll do a really quick photo series. I'll get back to you on that.
