Guys, guys, guys!

This is probably awkward since my last post was about "mini-divorces", BUTTTTT! I am here to announce that I will be making a leave from this blog to another one! It has been a wild ride guys, really! For those of you who stuck with me through all 56 posts, or just stopped by, I tip my hat to ya.
As you may or may not know, in less than a week, after my two wondrous years in Bellingham, I will be starting a new photo program at Seattle Central, which I have been waiting to experience for a long time. Let it be known, however, that I am not cutting ties with any of you in "The City of Subdued (dude) Excitement". You all, along with this beautiful city, had such a part in making me the person I am, especially creatively. As I move on to my adventures in Seattle, I wanted to start on something new, a way to mark the beginning of this experience, soooo you can follow me on my new blog: http://seeingacameravomit.tumblr.com
Don't worry, I promise less teeny bopper diary entries. Not that those aren't great...
Cheers to a new blog ya'll!

Mini Divorce

Carmen,

Thank you so much for the wonderful card; of course I do feel a little like we're going through a mini divorce, and I was the last one to find out that you're running off with another... School.


It's been a pleasure working with you. You're a very talented artist, and I have high expectations of you and your art career. Your determination, foresight, and ability to approach image-making with a creative eye will serve you well as you follow a new path in Seattle.


Anyway, I wish you nothing but the best of luck in your future endeavors. I also wanted to let you know that my door is always open and if you ever need a letter of support or anything else, please let me know.


KEEP ME POSTED,


Garth

Tulip Fields

Went to the Tulip Fields with my color photo and alternative photo class the other day. Last time I went I was 8 and pictured in front of a never ending field of colorful tulips that reached kingdom come. That wasn't there this time, so found inspiration elsewhere.
Speaking of white dreams...

EXACTLYHOWIFEELRIGHTNOW

~!@(#$*#@!*@$%@$~!*
Here it goes...

So I don't know if it's the constant shitty weather or the fact that it has always been hard for me to like living in Bellingham, but whatever it is has caused me to be in this recent state of constant bitter wonderment. 
Like,

"WHY THE FUCK DO I HAVE TO BE IN THIS TOWN WHEN ALL MY FRIENDS GET TO PURSUE MY SAME DREAMS AT ART SCHOOLS IN MUCH GREATER CITIES SURROUNDED BY MORE INSPIRATION & OPPORTUNITIES?!"

Sometimes, no, wait, MOST ALL times, I wish I would have just started at the school that I wanted. Of course, I never tried ($$$$...). I mean, I don't completely regret what I have experienced here in good ole gray Bellingham! The small, supportive, artistic community has made it easy for me to collaborate with amazing people and be a part of a lot of art exhibitions and publications, something I would be intimidated to put myself out there for at a big East Coast art school. BUT! I still can't help the way I feel! And it just sucks because I know I am just as good, if not better, than these kids at art school. 

Gah! I just need to learn to move forward, stay motivated and most of all learn to start being more proactive, because that's what will make the difference...

Oh well, thank Oprah for beautiful places like this that will soon be a part of my life (Sasquatch!)

YELLINGHAM! TWO THOUSAND N TEN!

This year marks Bellingham's first ever Yellingham Music Festival! It is a 3-day house show festival and this year they are ending the festival with a show at my house. Here's the poster I made for it! This may or may not be the most intense poster I have ever designed. 

P.S. All the text? Yeah, that was done purely by finger-mouse coordination haha
