Bad Girl


Sorry to labour this painting of my delicious Alice, but I’m still experimenting with lomographic photography. I took this with my most recent lomographic acquisition, a Polaroid 600 Extreme.

This camera takes way better pictures than the Polaroid Land camera I slightly less recently was playing with.

Time Storm


I took this with my recently acquired, 34 year old Minolta Weathermatic A, one of several gorgeous old camera’s I have recently bought to further my new interest in lomography. This camera not only takes photos in the rain (it was pouring down), but can be used under water. It uses 110 cartridges. This is an image from the first film I put through it. This is also the first 110 film I have used since I was 17 (38 years ago) when I bought my first camera, also a Minolta, but a 110 zoom—I loved that camera.

I’m loving my adventure into lowtech photography!

Some retro-style scifi fun (:

Call of the Night


Sometimes the call of the night is so strong, that Creaturina finds herself reverting to the nakedness that was her constant state for the first fifteen hundred years of her four thousand year life, and climbing to the highest battlements of her castle. There, she perches effortlessly till dawn, silently listening. Her heart aches to understand what it is she can hear coming from some point in space. She has been hearing this call, getting slowly stronger, for millennia. She does not know that what she can hear is her mother, the deranged planet Nightmare, calling her home.

I really like this—it’s a bit rough, but I like that about it. I can always spend several more hours making it slicker, but probably won’t. The background is from one of my recent lomo efforts. The idea of Nightmare calling to Creatuie has been part of the Creaturina plot progression for a long time, I’m finally getting round to making it real. Creatuie knows she’s not human, but has no idea just how spectacularly alien she really is.

My Baby


Here’s a lovely closeup of an acrylic painting I did of one of my two favourite creations, Alice. I posted a series of WIP’s while I was painting this, last year. I was not that happy with the end result, then (after hours and hours of ridiculously thin layers of acrylic), but totally love her smouldering gaze, now. She’s my beautiful, lethal, kick-ass girl (:
