Alien Shores

Alien Shores

It was a strange day indeed along the water front of the wilds of Whitby. Two white hot suns did shine down. A few sulphur clouds hung in the acrid sky. The lake that had been turned to oil and dung was lapping eerily against the shore. An oozing putrid sludge was left behind when the gelatinous mass crawled back to the cesspool from whence it came.

You would think nothing, not even disease could live in that fetid pool, yet, ever so slowly, almost imperceptibly some horror was taking shape. Compelled and reviled, daring not to look away in case this growing atrocity of monstrosity suddenly took full form.

I could go on but this is about the artwork not story telling. A brief technical description is below the piece


Designed with a 2 to 1 aspect ratio with the intent of producing at a minimum of 2′ x 4′. Yes it was a monster file with a working resolution of 720 PPI / DPI and a canvas size of 6″ x 12″ in PSD Format. The 35mm neg was brought in on a Polaroid Film and Slide Scanner around 1440 DPI as I recall. Why so big? Simple Stuff, you learn early that imagery will go down in size quite nicely and it won’t go up in size worth a damn. Interpolate is the actual word and that word applys to imagery not just text.

      Hello there.

      I’m happy to be along on the journey.

      I and another are the Co-Leaders of a group of DWI’s, devoutly warped individuals. We are funny ha ha and funny strange. We leave it up to the reader to figure out which in the moment. We have fun along with the poignancy and heartfelt in our works.

      Our kool-aid is purple. We’ll make it available but it’s up to each individual as to whether or not they care to partake.
