dark early

It has come to my attention that this blog has recently become a look-at-what-i-did blog, instead of a collection of things going on in my life blog. I haven't really shared anything emotional recently or thoughtful. I don't think that's good.

Jess and I recently went to our friend Gala's Warm Blooded show. A lot of the drawings are finely rendered unusual animals. They're really fun to look at.

Gala is also a teacher at SPU and we were privileged to speak to her digital illustration class about our experiences as artists.

Check out Gala and her husband Zack's websites at:

Sweat from Tom DesLongchamp on Vimeo.

Asthmatic Kitty Records is holding a music video competition for their artist Rafter, so I very quickly created this with my friend Tim at his house. It's kind of David Lynch-y, but pretty fun. Hope you enjoy it. Rafter is awesome and you should check his stuff out.

If you want to see some of the other music videos people have entered, check out the youtube group.

Judges for the contest include:
The Liars
Dan Deacon
Sasha Bareese - actress (American Pie, The Ring, Legally Blond, The Hulk, etc.)
Christine Starkman - Curator, Asian art - Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
the staff of Yo Gabba Gabba
Leslie Hall (of youtube fame)
Adrian Grenier - actor/musician

Tired from Tom DesLongchamp on Vimeo.

I had a little fun with the new camera today. Hope you enjoy it. I didn't plan to use the song (Tired by LCD Soundsystem). It was actually playing on my stereo when I took the shot of Renton and I liked the feeling of it, so I ripped the song and played it for the rest of the montage.

I forgot the power of a new lens. For the past year I had been taking photographs and video with a fixed lens point-and-shoot camera. With my new camera, I feel like my view of the world has changed just by the new things I can capture.

I purchased a Nikon D90 from Amazon last week. My old camera died over a year ago, so it's been a major relief to have control over photos again. So far this camera has been great and I love that it has a video function.

My lovely wife Jessica has a card line that just appeared in ALL Starbucks, so keep your eyes out for that. It's a 4 card set and each card has a quote and some silhouetted graphics with color and pattern, similar to the Positively Green card line she did last year.

The biggest raindrops on Earth were recorded over Brazil and the Marshall Islands in 2004 — some of them were as large as 10 mm.
