Time Lapse Tuesday: Hand Painted Slingshot And One Mini Canvas

I can’t possibly be the first person to think of “Time Lapse Tuesday”, but something tells me it’s not anything that’s really going to catch on. However, that did not stop me from making this video last week. Per usual, I forgot to post about it here and had to wait a full week just for it to be “Tuesday” again. Anyway, enough blabbering. Check out the video!

I hope you enjoyed that. Trust me, I am trying to figure out a way to make art videos a little more exciting and I’m totally stumped. If you have any suggestions hit me up. Anyway…

I painted a bunch of slingshots back in May, which you might have seen on Instagram, but I am pretty sure posting them here was another forgotten task. Until now!

I pretty much gave myself a headache coming up with clever names like, “Billy The Bearded Bombarder”, “Torpedo Tim”, and “Freddie Fling”, which will surely bring joy to all who love the pleasure only a slingshot can provide.

If you’d like one of these hand painted beauties please check them out in my shop. They are $30 each and right now there are still 4 available.

And, our dear “Julien” is patiently awaiting to be adopted by a caring, but charmingly dysfunctional, family. If that sounds like you then click here.

That’s it for now. As always, thanks for reading!

Let’s Talk About You Tube

I started my YouTube channel in January 2007. I didn’t do too much with it until I started selling graffiti supplies in my shop. It’s amazing how many people watch videos of graffiti supplies. In most of the videos I wasn’t even using them. I would just sort of scan over new products when they arrived. I’m sure to graffiti artists it just looked like pure heaven to see 50-100 markers displayed across my table as they drooled over their computer screens.

I’ve uploaded about 60 videos and my second most watched video is a 58 second clip of me scanning over a table full of graffiti markers. There’s no talking or explanation of the goods. I uploaded it 7 years ago and it’s been viewed 44,000 times. There are youtubers that get the same amount of views within 10 minutes of posting their videos, but 44,000 of anything is still a whole heck of a lot.

Although I’ve always loved YouTube it’s been kept safely on the back burner. For one, I am EXTREMELY awkward in front of a camera. On top of that, editing video takes me a long time and I’m not about to pay somebody to do it for me. One of the best things about sharing content these days is the immediacy of it. You can literally record some video footage on your phone and have it on YouTube a few minutes later ready to be seen by the whole world. This is why I want to edit my own videos. It might take me a long time, but I don’t have to work around somebody else’s schedule.

What I’m getting at is that this past December I finally started focusing some energy on my channel. I’ve posted 10 videos since December 9, 2015, which is pretty good for me. I would love to post at least one video a week. I mean, that’s my goal, but goals without deadlines are never met because that’s impossible. You can’t just say “from now on I’m doing _____.” So, I’m stating here that my goal, starting in April, is to make one video a week for the next 3 months. It will be a challenge for me, but I also think it’s attainable and those are two of the key ingredients to setting a worthwhile goal.

Here’s a video I posted almost two weeks ago that I haven’t shown here on the blog yet. This is a road trip vlog from a day trip Coral and I took to San Francisco back in January. Enjoy!

If you’re a regular visitor to YouTube please subscribe to my channel and give a thumbs up to the videos you like.

Thanks for reading and watching!

James And Evy Spinning Stop Motion

This is the second stop motion video I made using Frameographer for iPhone. Like the last one I posted, this is best thought of as a preliminary sketch for something greater.

My main goal was to get the kids interested in making their own stop motion movies. Since the process is tedious and time consuming and children have zero to little patience my theory was that if I put them in a movie and they thought the result was cool or funny then they would learn that all the effort was worth it when you see the final result. Lucky for me, it worked. James has become addicted to making stop motion movies. Evy has made some too. Not quite with the same enthusiasm as James, but it’s been awesome watching both of them get excited about being creative with the camera.

Eventually, I’ll get around to posting some of their movies on here.

Thanks for watching!

Just A Little Stop Motion

the tools for...

This was the first stop motion video I made back in September using the Frameographer app. I know it’s nothing special. I think of it as a preliminary sketch to a brilliant masterpiece.

Yeah, we’ll see what happens in the future with these stop motion thingies. I have a few more that I might be posting over the next couple of days.

Here’s the completed painting in all its stop motion glory.
