Taking Duck Photography to a Higher Level

I love the duck! There is no better cartoon than one that makes you laugh at yourself, your profession and hobby!










I Got a Pack of New Shirts

I had some fun over the last few days. Stuck at home with a semi-busted ankle, I cannot do much more than sit around watching TV or surfing the net. At some point I was bound to spot the PacMan game on Google, and notice that the little yellow guy celebrating 30 years!

Whilst playing a few rounds of the game that Google had put on its search engine, I had some interesting thoughts about all those 8-bit games we played when we were teenagers. Half-Life, WOW and on-line gaming were not available when we were kids!

Having a weird sense of humour, I quickly thought of some interesting variations on the PacMan game. Twenty minutes of drawing, designing, creating my ideas, I now have four shirts on Redbubble for anyone to buy and wear proudly:

Pac Pong . This was the first version I created. Red and yellow is right? Ah well, my monochrome version can’t be far wrong from the original colours.

PacPong Original . White on black makes more sense. I may make a black on white version, it’s only a few minutes work. ;)

Pac Invaders This was the first shirt I made in this series, and gave birth to all my other ideas and designs.

Pac Asteroids – White on Black . This idea has been going over in my mind for about 24 hours. I won’t say this concept is perfect, and parts of it fell into place at the last possible moment. Originally I had planned to have asteroids like in the original version, but suddenly realised that damaged blobs made more sense.

Pac Asteroids – Black on White . This time I decided inverted-colours was a good idea. With so many great colour choices for shirts on Redbubble, it made sense to let every potential buyer get what they want.

I plan to buy one of each for myself very soon. Which ones are you going to buy first?

I hope the ATARI people have a good laugh. Heck, I hope they don’t mind what I have done.

Today’s Client: Red Jewellery

Two shots from a jewellery shoot I did late this afternoon. Lot of fun. I’d love to do more shoots like this, where the still-life is very still!

Client arranged the jewellery, plus helped by holding the diffusers! Letting someone who loves jewellery to organise the product is the best thing.

Here are my two favourite pieces of jewellery from the entire shoot.

Yes, they are available to purchase! But not as jewellery, only as images from my Redbubble jewellery collection.
