Moto Kanji #14 is definitely a departure from the original intent, but it’s based on the same idea, so I’ll file under Moto Kanji, rather than some new appellation. And I should probably just make my life easier and broaden the definition.
Actually, by calling it so, I guess I have already broadened the definition.
If you’re curious — which I hope you are — this is k-rail on Loop 820 in Northwest Fort Worth, where a car rubbed against the k-rail. I photographed this one this weekend while the house was pretty quiet, and I thought I could get out and get weird without causing too much stress.

Ah, back to the heart of Moto Kanji — tire tracks as brush strokes. It’s been amazing discovering how the idea plays out in the real world. We’re I using brush marks to make tire tracks, I’d have infinite control over how and where the brush strokes appear.

An unchosen illustration for a client, this is a squidgy version of an image from the Library of Congress. Based on part of the poster for the Bull-Doggers.

Not at all what was expecting from Moto Kanji, but we can file this one under happy accidents.
This was photographed somewhere in Northwest Fort Worth, along with a metric crap-ton of other shots in and around Fall 2012. The colors and contrast were heavily massaged and adjusted in photoshop, but otherwise there are no other adjustments.

A series of photos taken by Fort Worth photographer Aaron Dougherty, edited together into a panorama by me. Part of a series I’ve been working on since last year, and for which I have big, crazy plans.

I have wrestled quite a bit over this fine art print — yesterday I released a very bright version of this with heavily saturated colors. Today I thought I’d share the same picture in B&W as Moto Kanji #11.
This one hews very close to my original idea of tire tracks as brush strokes. Especially in B&W — I hadn’t considered color originally, but as I started getting results, I discovered I loved the color shots, too.

I have wrestled quite a bit over this fine art print — I’ve tried a lot of color combinations and levels of saturation, and I think I’m happy. Well, I say that, but tomorrow I’ll release this in B&W as Moto Kanji #11.
This one hews very close to my original idea of tire tracks as brush strokes. I’ll be photographing more as I find time.

Help — the artist has gone mad! He’s run amok on the computer!
This started with one of my Instagram pictures of some glasses at my favorite local Italian food joint. Beaten, abused, folded, stretch and spindled far beyond recognition.

This fine art print is based on a NASA photo of John Glenn climbing into the Friendship 7 on his way to to becoming the first American to orbit the Earth.

I keep coming back to this fine art print — as always, I know what I see, and I think I know what you’ll see. Odd how happy accidents and on-the-spot inspirations broaden and influence the scope of what I thought I was doing.
