Street fighter Cornhole Boards

I have been working on a pair of Cornhole (bean Bag toss)  Boards for a customer...they came to me Well built and unprimed, Boards measure 24 x 40".  The Customers request was to depict the video Game Characters "Evil Ryu" and "Ken" from the Street fighter Series...I prepped and primed and got down with an Aerosol Back ground....then rendered 30" tall characters with Aerosol Paint...finish with a stencil layered for the logo and a clear coat.

Light Graffiti, Light Painting

city over the Bay..6x9' 45sec
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to try a medium called "light Painting" or "Light Graffiti"...It involves using a Fixed camera in complete darkness with a long 30sec/3min exposure...and using light ( led flashlights, glow sticks, lasers, flares etc)...in my experience it involved drawing in space with a LED flashlight...imagine being in complete darkness and creating large images on an imaginary wall..and you don't even have to move fast...which simply amazes me....pics all were done in under 45 secs..note text must be written in reverse which presents its own challenges...........also interesting is that you can have a conversation with your self (single exposure!).and NO DIGITAL ENHANCEMENT WAS DONE (Photoshop etc).....a Big thank you to Photog Heath Pettine for showing me this amazing medium....there will be more...oh yes there will be more!
