The Creative Panic

The Spirit of Ecstasy

 

“A little spot for illustrations and other inane piffle that populates my head, my world and hopefully many of the other multi-verses in which I have not been eaten by a shark, died choking on mashed potato or have been born a small teapot circling a distant star.”

 

The Creative Panicis a 365 day event starting on the 20th January 2011 and ending 19th January 2012.

 

The idea was to create a new design/drawing/artwork everyday for the next 365 days.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Although the event is almost over you can still check out the designs on the website.

The myriad array of Mercedes-Benz’s finest technological innovations, from the power-retractable hardtop to Active Body Control (ABC), remain untouched – as do safety systems, including crumple zones and airbags. At the same time, the TRAMONTO has…

I had visited the town previously for photos and I can usually find something of interest there. Although the old houses were nicely decorated for Christmas, I at first was going to get some architecture shots but instead I focused on an old gas station that I took previous 365 photos at. I saw these Coke bottles in the window and did my best to obscure my reflection in the glass when taking the shot. I added a heavy vignette during processing to further reduce my silhouette. Pentax K20D, DA17-70.

Real Thing

And what goes better with Coke than some ice? I saw this burned ice machine at a convenience store I used to visit when I was working in the Wheeling area a few months ago. I liked the colors and patterns in…
