Last night was phenomenal. It was my fifth (and final) RAW showcase, and it went better than expected. I felt really well prepared, and everyone I met was so nice.
Not only that, but quite a few friends showed up, and that made it even better. It’s great discussing my work with new people, but it really feels special when a friend shows up.
I’ll probably do a more formal write-up on my site blog regarding this show, and my experience with RAW in general. For now, I just want to say thank you to my friends who came out, anyone to stopped by to comment on my work and engage me in conversation, and a hello to anyone who has found my online presence as a result of last night’s show.
I’m tagging this “Artists on Tumblr”, but let it be known: I’m an artist IRL, too.
Because I’m determined to make this last show a good one, I’ve added some more work to the mix. These are 4x4” square prints, each one a mobile photo from my Instagram.
Adding that to the framed 12x18” photos, and the matted 8x12” photos, and you’re talking about 64 pieces on display.
You guys out here on tumblr seem to like my stuff, right? Do me a favor and stop by on Thursday. There’s two bars, a taco truck, and the work of a ton of artists. Click for tickets.
Just a behind the scenes shot of what I’m up to in preparation for Thursday. Placing 30 prints into mats and sleeves. Each will be for sale, along with the framed pieces I already have. Tomorrow, I’ll be picking up a couple of lighting fixtures, and that should complete the prep.
Are you in NYC? Do you like local art? Come on out and see me Thursday night at 8pm. Grab a ticket right here. Click the photo to check out the line-up.
Let me set the scene for you. De La Soul had just started their first song. Posdnuos, seen here, stepped down from the stage to the barricade ledge to perform to the crowd. The pit was crowded with about 8 photographers, as well as family of the group’s DJ, Maseo (which was pretty awesome).
When this happened, the crowd went wild, and naturally, so did the pit. See that camera in the upper right? Don’t be that guy.
Instead of waiting for a shot that he could have easily taken with his eye on the viewfinder, he repeatedly held his camera over his head, and outstretched his arms to get shots, which effectively photobombed me and the other people working in the pit. It’s a douchebag move and you really shouldn’t do it.
You also shouldn’t stand on the barricade, which he also did. Listen, you are a guest. The people on the other end of that barricade? They paid to see the concert. Don’t abuse your position at the front of the stage by blocking everyone’s view, even if it’s “only for 3 songs.” You could see that the people behind him were not pleased.
De La Soul
The legendary De La Soul, performing to a sold out Irving Plaza last night. Irving Plaza was the very first place they ever performed, so it’s pretty amazing that they made it a stop on their 25th anniversary tour. There were guest appearances by Common and Q-Tip, as well as Dres of Black Sheep. One of the best shows I’ve ever been to.
Our Photographer of the Month DeShaun Craddock sees wonder everywhere. His work ranges from the street to the concert, abstract to architecture, and beyond.
