This seems like a really odd (and somewhat anti-climactic) photo to start a visual art blog with, but here’s the story. I’ve been procrastinating getting a photo blog up and running for some time now. I started putting one together, and then decided I didn’t want to limit it to just photography, but rather have it be an avenue to experiment with other forms of visual art, be it graphic design, interactive design / motion, or even digital painting.

After some talk with some friends on Twitter (about being in a rut with photography), and a conversation my friend Jen, I decided to take a whack at weekly creative challenges– be they design, photography, or illustration. I was originally introduced to the idea by the instructor who got me started on digital painting. On his blog he’d post entries for Illustration Friday from time to time: an illustration based on a single word theme.

The Photo Friday theme for this week was Sunshine. I know there’s nothing really spectacular about this photo, but it was progress enough that I picked up the camera 😉 I cracked a couple eggs last night to make some French toast, and this is what came out of one of the shells. It made me laugh a bit, and upon considering this week’s challenge, I figured it would do the trick.

If you’re reading this there’s a good chance you enjoy photography, design or illustration. I’d love to see your attempts at a Friday challenge– the more the merrier, for sure!

    Haha, yes. I wouldn’t have had the idea to use it as Photo Friday (let alone would I have put in the time to get the subdomain / blog running instead of watching LOST) if you hadn’t brought it up. So thanks 😉
