Artist Feature: Mary Campbell

Hanging out with Mary Campbell is one of the great things about being back in Seattle; she is a wonderful person and a gifted photographer. We embarked on a little trip to Discovery Park this weekend as the sun set. She took some pictures.

I think all of the pictures of me on this website were taken by her at one time or another. But, surprise surprise, her talents extend beyond taking pictures of me. She brings her camera where’er she roams to capture the instant, resulting in photographs ranging from awe-inspiring land and seascapes to intimate portraits that embody her subject’s spirit. All of her pictures are instilled with a sense of adventure that arises not only from her subjects but from her very soul.

For your enjoyment, some recent photos from her tumblr blog:

Much love to the Soup.

the end of a sophomore year

A collection of images from the last week of my sophomore year at SPU. All of these were edited with the recently updated VSCOcam app—perhaps the best photo editing app there is (that I have seen).

spring break 2013

In my careless free fall into annoying amateur iPhone photography, I’ve stumbled across a new app called Plastica. It attempts to replicate the photographs of plastic cameras, something I know nothing about. Here are some pictures from the last couple of days:

in the mean time

I’ve been thinking how I should follow up my last post. I’ll keep thinking about that. But in the mean time, here is a picture taken from one of my favorite places on earth, Kerry Park.

I’ll be staying here over the summer to work at SPU and intern at IMAGE journal. I am pleased.

In an earlier post, I made a passing reference to a comic series I tried to begin when I was… 8? 9? 17?
Who knows.
A long time ago.

I went through several obsessions back in my single digits.  Geography/maps; Greek/Roman mythology (also a couple brief affairs with Norse and Tiki myths); magic tricks; cartooning; Crazy Bones.  For journalistic integrity, I should say that the last three of those aren’t necessarily in chronological order.

Posted below is the epitome of my cartooning phase.  The pièce de résistance, if you will—and it’s my blog, so you better will!  This comic is also a survivor of the Tragic Rainfall on Cartooning Folder as well as the Regrettable Basement Flood of ’07.  After the TRoCF I moved many of my cartoons into a plastic accordion-style portfolio.  The portfolio has many sections, including “Villains,” “Paper! paper!,” and “Other Artists.”  This comic was found in “Ready to Sell.”

I hope you find it amusing.
