This idea started out as gift for my aunt (bride). She is very non traditional so I decided to make her a story book which outlined her entire wedding day. After I published it, I ordered a special book and purchased a bronze embellishment from a local craft store to top it off. I also picked up some fabric and had the inside of the box fabricated. It turned out great and she loves it. Simple, give it a try!
Not long before I graduated from Elizabeth City State University in 2011. One of my professors recommended that submit some of my shots from class into a photography contest for emerging professionals. I was shocked to receive information that my work was a finalist in the contest, also published in there annual book for 2011. So if you ever see the book or purchase it turn to page 204 Photographed is my frat brother Kevin Swain. Check it out!
The Tillett’s are a great couple I really enjoyed working with them. They had a beautiful chocolate themed wedding constructed by Created by Him Entrusted by You Designs. I found just the rite ribbon to layer their portfolio with. Inside holds a story book outlining there entire wedding day, a dvd with a memorable slide show, and a extra drive holding all photos. This package was just enough to get a phone call from the bride in tears of joy, I can truly say that makes it all worth it.
This was a very stressful show to pull off. Mainly because I had so many ideas and so little time to do it in, but I got through it. I had some very powerful messages that I wanted to get across to people who cant seem to speak, act or think for themselves. It was called Break Out Foundation, I did a series of posters to give insight from different prospectives about violence, false teachings, idolizing, and so many other things that is going on with people and their ability to continue to be passive. The swirls of the design indicate chaos, the boxes represent the mind state of the person being closed. I also did a more personal series, stay tuned!
This is the series of art that is based on my experience of anxiety attacks. I developed it after the passing away of a cousin, each night I would wake up gasping for air or not being able to awake out of my sleep. This went on for about three or four months. I wanted to capture the emotion of the anxiety and the intensity, what better way to do it besides use motion. The lenticular lens help develop animation from one scene to the next. This series also has information to overcome similar experiences. Check it out!
