UFL Season 5 Opener

This past weekend was the season 5 opener of the Unicyle Football League, featuring a matchup between the Hot Dogs and last season's championship runner-up, the Gnarwhals. It looks to be another great season of UFL action, featuring a new team, the Ill Eagles. Catch the games live in San Marcos every Sunday at 3:33 in the parking lot next to Tantra Coffeehouse. For more photos from the UFL, check out my Flickr set here.

Reed and Michelle's Wedding

Last Saturday, two good friends of mine since high school, Reed and Michelle, got married! It was a beautiful ceremony and an even better reception. I've been shooting weddings for years now and this was the first wedding I got to shoot with this group of friends, which for me, made it all the more memorable. It's not that often that I get to photograph my friends, so I spent the day and night shooting away and came away with some great stuff. I put together a photo slide show from some of the photos, edited to "Eyes" by Morris Orchids, more friends of mine who played during the reception. Next up, Sean and Amber!

DAC SOS - Blowing Trees "Stealing Us Away"

Back in July, I filmed the Digital Art Consortium's inaugural event, Sesnory Overload Sunday at the Mohawk in Austin, TX. My friends Blowing Trees were the headlining act, which featured live visual projections courtesy of my partner in crime Matt Daly. Without further ado, here's a video from the evening that I edited together from Matt's visuals and my live feed of the show:

Unicycle Football League Photo Shoot

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of doing a calendar photo-shoot with the Unicycle Football League and their cheerleaders, the UniBrawdz. The UFL, created by my friend Marcus Garland, begins their 5th season on Sunday September 27th in San Marcos, TX with a match between seasoned veterans, the Hot Dogs and the Gnarwhals. An expansion team, the Ill Eagles, will join the UFL this season along side the defending champions, the Unicychos and last season's rookie team, the Berzerkers. Games are every Sunday in the parking lot next to Tantra Coffeehouse at 3:33pm in San Marcos. I highly recommend you check one out!

Bringing In The Sheep

This past Saturday, I had some art in Lone Star Studios 2nd Saturday art show C'est Mon Dada including this centerpiece installation titled "Bringing In The Sheep." It was a big hit with everyone, from children to adults who remember playing with the toys that littered the installation. The one question that I got the most was "what is this supposed to mean?" I can't really give a definite answer since it all just sort of came together, but for me, it's a nostalgic look at childhood, with a twist of disturbia.

10,000 Views

Last year, I completed a photographic time lapse project of the construction and renovations of the north end zone at Darrel K Royal Memorial Stadium at the University of Texas in Austin. I began the project back in December 2006 and completed it in December 2008, with the help of my friend Jody Cross, who shot photos while I was on my bike ride to Alaska with Texas 4000. I've got two versions of the video up on Youtube and the first one I posted back in 2007 has hit 10,000 views. Combined with the final version, the project has now been seen over 15,000 times!

My goal at the beginning of the project was to pitch it to the UT football media department and try to get it screened on Godzillatron at a game. They liked the project but decided that it was something that they would not be screening. Their loss:

C'est Mon Dada

This weekend, I will have some of my art on display at Lone Star Studios 2nd Saturday gallery opening art show entitled "C'est Mon Dada." I've created a child-size diorama of sorts that is entitled Bringing In The Sheep... it's basically color meets creepy. Check back soon for photos of the project. I'll also have some other art work on display as well, so if you're in the area, stop by and check out the gallery in south San Antonio.
