This is a glimpse of a book I made for print, paper, book. The rest of the book will most likely be posted at a later date. This particular image is a screen print of a newspaper artical on my grandfather fishing from many years ago. It's seems to fit in perfectly with our next project... The ART SHANTY projects.

The article reads:
Of late, an early morning or evening motorist can expect to see Little Detroit Lake aglow with the lanterns of many fishermen who make the daily journey to the lake for panfish.

A group of Minneapolis area sportsmen were found Wednesday afternoon on Little Detroit trying their luck.

Kae Nelson of New Hope said he and his party have had good luck since coming to Detroit Lakes Monday. Using waxworms, they've managed to pull a number of sunfish out of the lake.

Seated on a five-gallon bucket, Nelson is the position of leisure as he gently jigs the line which dangles into the icy waters of Little Detroit.

"We like to come to Detroit Lakes for fishing," said Nelson. "there are usually some good sized fish and you can't beat the taste," he added.

Like Nelson and his fishing party, most success has been had with waxworms for panfish. Sucker minnows of 3-4 inch length have proven their worth when going after the northern and walleye, said a Walther's Tackle employee.

These are some of the form and symbol compositions that I made for class. Experimental with found typography, this is only the begining...

Old Perfume Bottles

Saw these on ebay :: AWESOME

I'm just wondering what the perfume smelled like.
Perhaps dandelions?

Ellen Kooi::Photographer

Veer-Atlas, 2007, Ellen Kooi

Amersfoort-Visvrouwen 1998, Ellen Kooi

I was introduced to Ellen Kooi's work in 2005 and have followed it for a while. This Dutch Photographer is known for her romanticism and awe inspiring landscapes that seem to envelope her characters. Her photo's seem simple and clear but are pact with energy. The mind boggles. See more of her photography at her website

Sibilini-Rim, 2006, Ellen Kooi

Her images remind me of the long bus rides I was forced to take home from school and seeing colorful fields of whatever. I dreaded the bus, all I wanted to do was jump out the window,into what would most likely resemble her photography.
