I have an online portfolio that shows all the best of my best in sculpture, jewelry, photography and art. I wanted to make sure it was linked here for you to find. It is this: Glimmerville Portfolio, and I would be tickled if you would check it out. I also placed it in the permanent side-bar links on this page.
I do think of myself as an artist. Though I don’t currently create art for a day job, I can’t ever expect to do more art if I don’t show others my work, can I? So please, check it out, and feel free to ask about commissions and sales!
Several months ago I caved in and bought a real, live iPhone. I had never even had an iPod, (apparently) deciding that iTunes was evil. I had a Rio Diamond mp3 player (Anyone remember that? It held a half hour of music, woo!) and then nothing, and then resisted the urge to buy an iPod, and eventually had a couple of Zens (which were very nice, and I still use my Zen XFI sometimes). But… this iPhone is amazing.
The iPhone is basically a sonic screwdriver. It does everything.
It has been a very fun experience, full of games as good or better than my Nintendo DS (or actual ports!), art apps that are as fun in their own way as my Bamboo tablet, and a GPS with Geocaching apps that is better than the GPS I used to have. Not to mention a compass, a flashlight, and an app that lets me find my parked car! (Note: Many people have told me that they want an iPhone just for this app!)
People can, in fact, take serious photos with an iPhone. I just listened to This Week in Photo and heard them interview Jack Hollingsworth who said that he could easily see people taking wedding photos with an iPhone – especially since most photos these days only need to be “screen quality”. But he also pointed out that he could make a nice 16×20 print out of an iPhone photo. Amazing.
The one drawback is that no one takes you seriously as a photographer when all you are holding is a camera phone. [Future Update Note, in 2015 this is changing. – RR]
I will only point out a couple of apps that I enjoy here:
Anyway, feel free to suggest other Apps in the comments!
