    Here's a shot from the Abney Park show here in Seattle-- LastWear and friends were invited to put on a fashion show during the intermission. Abney Park killed it-- they're consummate professionals and terribly nice people-- and Thom's work got another 250 new fans.

    @Gekko. Is that a balcony you have there? Or, are you having a nice dinner in front of a doll's house? Either way, I'm jealous.

    @Gekko, I want to be where you are, seriously. This reminds me that I should make a trip to Yamashiro sometimes soon - also a beautiful hilltop city view there. Seeeeee.

    @texture; What a great photo! The abandonment of all poise is champion.

    @Jon; Future Shogun Steampunk looks awesome. Thom is made of clever and style. Also, STERNOMASTOIDS!

    Called my metcard a multi pass the other day when messing about with friends, 20 minutes later my crappy MS Paint skills and I had a fantastic idea!

    Also Papermate Gel 2020 pens are great for drawing on yourself with. Just in case you were wondering.

    @chris g You rock my nerdy comic-centric world :-D

    @gekko Balcony envy!

    @Zo I don't know enough about photography to explain how much I love the effect you're achieving in those photos. Enigmatic split perspective angle love <3

    @Ricochet; I heart the chibi-wookie!

    On my way to work this morning, thoughts of neuroscience made me giddy. I needed to be up a tree, stat!



    The feeling of bark beneath my palms and fingers lingered deliciously for hours; a little reminder of the outside world as I typed in my cubicle.

    Also, why do people in the city never look up?

    @ krista: the need to regularly climb trees is definitely a sign of healthy sanity. as to why cityfolk dont look up? its something to do with not wanting to look like a tourist and get mugged for pocket change... at least, that applies in NYC, and Edinburgh during the Festival.

    @Gekko: Beautiful!
    @Zoetica: New glasses are very cool and your photos are beautiful . . . as always.

    I got notice of an actual partial refund for one of my grad classes so I bought a digital slr camera . . . I'm not used to resolution where you can see some of my pores, it's alarming

    I always look so tired . . . sigh.
    . . . still playing with the new camera. I might need to now buy photoshop so I can "airbrush" myself :)

    Not really a self-portrait technically, but I never have a camera handy, so I'll risk bending the rules a tiny bit.

    Me and my lovely wife Jane Irwin (VOGELEIN, CLOCKWORK GAME) on the beach along southern Lake Michigan, about 2 miles south of Warren Dunes State Park. I love this picture of me and Jane, and we get so few decent shots of the two of us together, I just had to share. This picture is an accurate depiction because:
    1. I never tan, just get red and lobster-like in color
    2. I pose like a dork, no matter where I am
    3. Jane never takes a picture without blinking.

    I am getting sad because it seems the only way to make a name for myself or survive financially at this art-photography thing is to go the sexy route. Bleh. In my trying to figure if I could bring myself to do that on a regular basis, I've been going though old pictures from when I last considered that path. Here's a self portrait from 2005 I never used for the website redesign because it was too traditionally "pretty" and whatnot... not my default aesthetic.

    too sexy to use REtweaked
    (natural blonde hair! tan skin! egad! )

    Maybe this is the sort of stuff I need to do more. sigh....

    I can't decide if you're flexing, or the sunburn hurts too badly to out your arms down.
    Empathy on the lobster thing, trust and believe.

    Well, you're obviously not psyched about going that route. I don't know much about the actual business of photography, but I feel like people would be more inclined to notice you for doing your own thing, anyway. You've got the eye for it and the looks for it, if that's the way you want to go, but if it's not what you want to be doing, it'll probably show.

    'Sexy' is a bullshit concept, anyhow.

    I finally figured out how to turn off the flash on my camera in portrait mode . . . it would probably be so much easier to read the manual . . . teacher, heal thyself.

    You know, all the times I've seen your picture, not to mention drawn you, this is the first time I've noticed your nose stud...
