A couple pics from this weekend in Sully

Lifted a piece of tarp left in the deep woods and found this guy. Wasn't totally afraid of me, which is how I got these close up pics. Probably never saw a human before.

Montauk Trip 2010 - Early Oct

Took a trip to Montauk to fish with some amigos. Here are some pics.

Getting ready at 12am to get up at 5am.

On the water before 6am.
My favorite lure. Even though he wasn't cut out for the conditions. 18ft waves on Friday and 20-30mph winds the entire weekend will kick your ass when you're trying to fish in the surf. I only got knocked down once, but I was almost knocked over about a hundred times.
This guy was hanging onto this flower for dear life.
My first fish of the trip, a baby blue. Bucktails were about the only thing that worked in those waves and in that wind. Red pork rind tails baby!
Steve and his first fish.
My keeper that within 30 seconds of this photo being taken was swept back to sea by a rogue wave that slammed up the shore and took her even though I dove into the sand to stop her. Live and learn, I will not make that mistake again. I hope to see you another day when you're much fatter.
Bass number two. A bit too small.
Bass number three. And that's it for me.

A random sculpture on the beach.And here we have a video that is sure to upset most people. But I think Bobby McFerrin has that affect on most people.

Second post card submission

I wanted to try another idea I had. I took the postcards and lit them on fire, all the black is from the flame coming up and "painting" the wood in unpredictable ways. I then looked at each and imagined, if those burn marks were people, what would they look like? And these are them.

Update: I never submitted these in the end. :(

Brownstones to Red Dirt submission

Dave and Chad, co-workers of mine at Blue Sky, made a documentary and have organized an art auction to raise money to help build a school in Sierra Leone. This is my submission.

Graphite done on thin postcards of wood. I haven't done any hand drawings in a long time so this was a fun way to get back into it. Check out the blog with everyone's submissions here, there are a ton of gorgeous pieces up for sale for a good cause:
