It’s always great to have one’s work published or featured. It’s a good way to get exposure, and it shows that other people like your work enough to not only take notice, but feel the need to share it with others.
So, it was really great when I got a note on my dA account informing me that one of my photographs was being featured in a news article on the site. Check it out. My photo is the last one on the fourth row.
Also, I’m pretty sure that one of my photographs will be published in this year’s volume of Oracle. It’s a literary and fine arts journal published by the University of South Alabama.
And then there’s my submissions to Issue 10 of JPG Magazine. It’d be really awesome if one of my works got published. I submitted photos in each of the 3 themes for the issue: Entropy, Breakthrough, and Beauty Redefined.
I’ve been more focused on photography lately and have had offers to be commissioned, or interest rather. It’s be really funny if I turned out to be a really successful photographer, seeing how unstudious (is that a word?) I was in class. But then, it wasn’t that I was a bad photographer, it was just hard for me to adjust to the idea of coming up with concepts and then executing them on film.
Anyway, there’s a drawing I really need to start on for the current sketch jam over at SBA. . .
So they had this retirement luncheon at work for a woman who’s been working at the company for 15 years to the day. She’s their first retiree, so it was especially memorable. The free food wasn’t bad either.
It was weird celebrating and I’d just gotten there and had barely gotten acquainted with the woman. Well, c’est la vie.
Out with the old, in with the new. . .
Let them eat cake.
The beloved retiree. A cookie if you can guess her name.

Work has been pretty good. I like the environment. On the first day I felt seriously overwhelmed when a co-worker was explaining to me what I was to do. My job right now is to process files that customers send via orderprinting.com. I fix the files in Photoshop/Illustrator/InDesgin so they can be made into plates for printing. It’s not quite as boring as it sounds. I get to see tons of bad graphic design, and some of it’s pretty funny.
Today, things got particularly exciting when all the employees took cover in one of the back rooms during a tornado warning. I’ve been through hurricanes, but I’m absolutely terrified of tornadoes. There’s hardly any warning when one is about to touch down, and it’s so much more destructive and unpredictable than a hurricane (example). Yeah. . . scary.
