eye_em_jhs

I was lucky to have my EyeEm photography and profile featured in their ’20 New Recommended Photographers: March 2016′. It’s amazing how this feature has increased my profile activity on EyeEm, as well as inspire me to capture and post more photos. I’ve experienced a little productivity boom in recent weeks. Just goes to show for all aspects of life, that rewards and a little extra exposure help to inspire positive growth. Thanks to EyeEm for making March 2016 a great month.

Album Release -> Lessons in Perspective

lessons_in_perspective_cvr_blog

This past week I released a new album, titled: lessons in perspective. It was written and recorded January 10th – 18th, all except two tracks #2 & #4, which were recorded a couple weeks prior. Similar to my other releases I kept it simple, bodhran bass drum and conga for the backbone, guitars through my trusty old Supro Comet, Jazz bass, and vocals.

However, this time around a friend of mine recommended mastering the album through a local Seattle sonic guru named Ed Brooks, so I did. He was an amazing guy to work with, and he brought the overall sound of the album to a new level. I’m thankful for the valuable feedback and help from friends while pulling this album together. Have a listen (also available on iTunes/Apple Music).

Curbside VW Micro Bus -> 2015 Collection

vw_project_2015_smallwp

Over the holiday, I took some time to pull together some of my more recent Curbside VW Micro Bus pics (36) and assembled them into a large print that I’ve made available through Society 6. Long story short, if I see one, I take a picture of it. This has been going on since 2010. There’s also a t-shirt available via the links below.

2015 Albums: Marked Time -> In Real Life

jhsindesign_albums

As mentioned in my post earlier today, I managed to release two albums this year. In Real Life, was recorded early winter 2015 and carried through the spring. Marked Time, took most of the summer. I even captured some atmospheric 4th of july sounds from my backyard on track 9 (Solid Ground). I think that’s what I like about songwriting, you actually end up capturing a period of your life in mood, sound, and story. Wether you’ve set out to do it or not. It just comes out. Both available on Spotify via links below (also available on iTunes and all other digital services). Cheers.

2015 Recap Photos -> Welcome 2016

jhsindesign_2015

Hello there, lonely blog. I hope that this simple post will encourage more posts to happen in 2016. Above are some of my favorite photos from 2015. It was a good year, I travelled to visit my parents in Ohio, enjoyed a super long warm summer here in Seattle, and I released two albums. I plan to keep up with my photography habit in 2016, and I am already 4 songs deep on my next music project. Here’s to a productive new year for all! Enjoy.

What I Did Last Summer -> My Daily Photos

summer_vaca

I know, it’s only August 5th. I’m not trying to rush us through the season, I haven’t posted in a long while and I thought it would be nice to celebrate the magnificent weather we’ve been having up here in the PAC NW. After all, it’s what has been keeping me from posting. For now there’s too much to do outside. Many more photos beyond the links below.

“Noise” -> Kijek / Adamski

“Noise” from Kijek / Adamski on Vimeo.

Notes from Vimeo:

“Film inspired by the theoretic work of George Berkeley and basics of synesthetic perception. It’s a game of imagination provoked by sound. Individual sounds penetrating into the apartment of the main character relieved of their visual designates evoke images distant from its origins.”

Pacific Northwest -> Bokeh Pictures

pac_nw

This is a two part post really. One part, to make note of the fantastic photo narrative service that is exposure.so, and the other to highlight Bokeh and their Pacific Northwest collection. The photo narrative is such simple and powerful way to tell stories. The exposure templates offer a range of sizing and layout that allows flexibility and keeps the page flow feeling fresh. A great platform for artists and marketers alike.

Labics -> Architecture

If you are at all interested in modern architecture trends, then I would suggest clicking around Labics Architecture’s site (based in Rome). Not only are their final designs crisp and clean, their conceptual models and renderings are a work of art as well.

Notes from site: “Yule Log 2.0 re-imagines the traditional Yule Log through a collection of short films by illustrators, animators, directors, and creative coders. First televised in 1966 by WPIX-TV as a gift to viewers, the Log has since burned itself into our hearts.”
