The Art of Self-Portrait Photography
Gallery Descriptions and Miscats Month
The gallery description for Photography > People & Portraits > Self-Portraits is simply:
Photographs where the photographer is also the model.
Self-portraiture as a photography genre has been around for a long time. In fact, the first self-portrait photograph was a Dageurrotype created by Robert Cornelius almost two centuries ago.
Although there is absolutely no logical reason why self-portraiture should be considered any differently from any other kind of photography, it is often assumed to be inherently less artistic in meaning and execution, and therefore less valid as a form of visual expression.
In recent times, self-portraiture is often dismissed as nothing more than attention-seeking selfies by people showing off their outfit of the day or their gigantic muscles in the gym. For a start, those subjects are not wrong b

Lackadaisy on Patreon
Uh...something's up with the Journal widget here. Apologies for the repeat journal entry. I tried to edit my old one and it disappeared entirely.
I've recently left my job in the game industry so that I could focus more of my time and attention on Lackadaisy.  Patreon is my weapon of choice in trying to see this to fruition.
If more Lackadaisy comic updates, illustrations, tutorials, mini-comics, books and other things interests you, please do check it out!

Notes on Character Design
I received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog.  In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an i

Existentialism and Existential Psychology
WHAT IS EXISTENTIALISM?
1. Existence precedes essence. Existence means to emerge or to become; essence implies a static immutable substance. Existence is a process but essence is a product.
2. People are both subjective and objective and must search for truth by living active autentic lives.
3. People search for some meaning to their lives. (Who am I?, Is life worth iving?, Does it have a meaning?)
4. Each of us is responsible for who we are and what we become. As Sartre (1957) stated “man is nothing else but what he makes of himself.”
5. Authentic experience takes precedence over artificial explanations. (i.e., existentialism can be considered as a atheoretical model.)
BASIC CONCEPTS OF EXISTENTIAL PSYCHOLOGY
Being-in-the-world implies the oneness of subject and object, of person and world. Many people suffer from anxiety and despair brought on by their alienation from themselves or from their world. For exam

Patreon campaign : launch date April 1st, 2018


Are you familiar with Patreon? Patreon is a platform for creatives
that allows them to accomplish their goals by running a paid membership for fans.
I might be launching my own campaign starting on April 1st, 2018.
I am not sure yet...


I understand that not everyone can afford to buy my Limited or Collector's Edition Prints, even I cannot!
Still, I feel like giving away "little something" to my fans who want to support my art.
There are so many of you who have been here for at least 5 years with me since I started publishing my work,
and have never gotten even a "thank you" card from me. I feel it's not right.



WHY PATREON?

1/ EXCLUSIVE COMMUNITY of ART LOVERS and COLLECTORS

I'd like to grow an exclusive community of lovers of my art,
who by showing their interest, generosity,
and having insight into my vision,
will become its exclusive owners/collectors. 

2/ PATRONAGE MODEL of ART

I strongly believe in the historical patronage model of art,
and Patreon definitely mirrors art history in updated tech-savvy way.



3/ FUNDING A REGULAR MONTHLY SOURCE of INCOME for PRINTING my WORK

I feel like my work comes to life when I can see it on paper.
Sadly, I discovered this truth little late.
My journey into self-portraiture began in 2013.
Only after three years later,
I saw my first prints, and then
I realized how much I lost earlier.
In 2016 I started exhibiting
my photography at national
and international group exhibitions,
art shows and arts festivals.

I try to print as much as I can afford,
mostly recent pieces,
but my ultimate dream
as an artist is to see
all of my creations breathe on paper.
All the contributions from my Patreon campaign
will fund a little budget for printing more new works
that haven't seen the light of day yet.

GOALS of my PATREON CAMPAIGN

GOAL #1
Reaching this dream goal will allow me to run proofs,
and print a few of my recent works per month
at the rate I have been over the past couple years.


GOAL #2
Reaching this goal will allow me to run proofs
and print a few of my current works per month,
perhaps also a couple of early works,
as well as purchase framing supplies (mats, frames, glazing).

GOAL #3
Reaching this goal will allow me to print a few of my current works per month,
some early works, and purchase conservation framing supplies.
In addition, I may be able to afford a museum quality glazing for framed artwork.


HOW TO BECOME a PATRON

There will be (probably) SEVEN LEVELS of MEMBERSHIP (PATRONAGE) available:

1/ The One Heartbeat
-->$1 or more per month

2/The Five Heartbeats
-->$5 or more per month

3/The Ten Heartbeats
-->$10 or more per month

4/The Fifteen Heartbeats
-->$15 or more per month

5/The Twenty-Five Heartbeats
-->$25 or more per month

6/The Double Beat
-->$75 or more per month

7/The Palpitation
-->$125 or more per month


REWARDS

There will be a SYSTEM of physical REWARDS
corresponding to each level consisting of
all the possible creations based on my photographic work
such as hand signed original Archival Pigment Prints
from my Limited Editions of 90 and Collector's Editions of 10+1,
handmade items including my prints, handmade Artist's Books etc. 

I will be also hosting a monthly 24-HOUR FLASH SALE
available only for Patrons as well as all kind of discounts
in my shop depending on the level you contribute to my photography.

There won't be a paid content on my Patreon account that you unlock by pledges.
All the rewards for your contributions will be physical and covered with my original work
sent to you after a specified length of patronage. 

Check out all the available rewards at:
