Life of Art SitRep #33

Every week, I work towards creating a life of art for myself. This is the journey, full of zigs and zags that are collectively, thankfully, progress.

Play along in the comments with your own pursuits if you'd like. (That's where I cheer you on.)
This week, I
  • Shot 344 photographs.
  • Prepped and uploaded Western Auto Half Cylinder Building photograph.
  • Wrote product description and created Western Auto Half Cylinder Building product line: prints/posters, cards, postcard, mugs, t-shirts, binders, tote bags, stickers, keychain, magnets, buttons, mouse pad, apron, return address label, and stamps:
    Nine days into a cross country road trip, I stopped in Kansas City, Missouri to see Union Station. It was pouring when I arrived, but when the rain eased up later on, I ventured out to photograph exteriors. The humidity was intense, but I wanted to see a bit more of Kansas City. The Link is an image I made during that excursion.

    Ascending the parking exit ramp, I beheld an excellent semi-cylindrical structure and pulled over to shoot it from my car window. The Western Auto sign atop the building is encircled by an arrow. Since the sign is not parallel to the flat side of the brick edifice, it draws attention to the building's curved design.

    The exit ramp's decorative concrete railing angles across the foreground beginning in the lower left corner of the frame. Aside from a few much shorter buildings to the left of the Western Auto building, the background is sky with a few clouds.
  • Added link to Western Auto Half Cylinder Building products in The Road is my Favorite Place: Day 9 post where the image appears.
  • Blogged, tweeted, FB'd a sale.
  • Installed Photoshop CS5 and started teaching it to myself. If you've come across a helpful book about it, please leave the title in the comments.
  • Drew Deir el Bahri sketch.
  • Watched Iconoclasts: Tom Ford on Jeff Koons.


What did you do to pursue the life you want this week?
