I like your work and I *think* I understand something about you. You layer ideas in portraits, sometimes whimsey is involved. DEFINITELY non-sequitor.

 

I'm looking for interesting people to try this art project I'm working on.  I'm trying to create an A.I. to "design" images based on peoples' attitudes.  When you put a portrait shot in the mix it becomes an "inner-selfie" but I think it can go deeper than that. The results are pretty abstract and sometimes funny visualizations (the part you'll like) but aren't "art" yet but I'm hoping they will be once the system gets enough input. I've heard some artists are using Psymily for inspiration or at least non-sequitor.

 

Please try out Psymily and let me know your perspective.  It's just a web app for now. Here's a good starting point.

I'm insanely jealous of his hair. We both started growing out hair out at the same time and he's actually managed not to chop his way better than I have.

I really want to get prints of this photo and the corresponding one of me to put on the wall somewhere but it seems a bit weird putting photos of us that I took in our house. There's something a bit egotistical about putting them in the living room, and it seems a bit weird putting them in the bedroom.

lol that would be really cute, but you're right - it would be awkward. A couple I know has a gigantic picture of themselves above the couch and it's really strange and arrogant. o_O

I can definitely see why - it's something about that grin, isn't it?

Amazing capture, and I would have to agree - although black and white, it really feels warm.

I envy his hair. Why do men always get the fabulous hair and long eyelashes, and then not even appreciate it?

His hair is about shoulder length now...it's the best hair in the world too, we have female friends who envy it. He's like a shampoo advert at the moment. We agreed at the same time to grow our hair, but I've been really crap at it and am falling way behind due to last summer's bleached blonde mohawk. I'm not even close to catching up (even though I trim a sneaky half-inch more off D's hair than he wants me to when I'm cutting it).
