Since you’re here, I suppose you’d like to know what this mess is all about…

I’ve been doing semi-serious art and photography since around 2010, perhaps as a way to show the world what I think, which is pictures, not words.

Probably one of the biggest questions I get is WTF are these “projection” things. Some years ago I was gifted a 1950’s opaque projector, which allows me to take any flat medium – drawings, paintings, other photographs, etc., and enlarge it on a flat surface. I’ve taken the medium and applied it to the human form, distorting the world over humans, rather than the other way around.

The other bit is yes, I own a lot of gas masks, and occasionally acquire more as budget permits. (I think) they dehumanize emotions and situations, forcing the viewer to look at familiar things in a different way.

The rest of the stuff, sometimes I get to go to cool places, and/or see cool things, and I try to give even a dandelion it’s due justice.
