Wanted to do semi-straight letters for a change and freestyled these to the local graffiti wall. Original character provided by my dear friend Google images.

Happy Hippie - November 2014
Awww crap. It's been ages since I've uploaded a deviation.

These days I don't really have too much time to fool around with my camera gear and Photoshop but I decided to test if I can still do it when 13 EKS Otus DJ controllers landed on my lap last week.

Some details on how this image was done:
- Yup, I actually did have that many controllers to use so I carefully placed on the floor of my studio against a bright red backdrop
- Around 50-60 images were shot and combined in Photoshop
- Each controller was illuminated separately in four different ways (studio flash, the built in lights of the controller using long exposure, moving "disco lights" from front left & right)
- The whole process took around 10 hours to complete (mostly because I haven't been doing this in quite a while so every step needed extra consideration)
...the comments I get on my work more often!

The feedback I get is important to me and encourages me to push myself forward. Hopefully that means better styles and techniques (on graffiti, photography and illustration) during MMXII.

Thanks a lot for your comments. Even if it does take me quite a while to reply to them I always do in the end. ^_^

I swear, I love the style you have for graphitti. It's better than whatever I can come up with easy.

Congrats on the DD!
