Right, well, that’s enough for now. My eyes hurt and I dream about layers and presets these days, but it was all totally worth it!

Yes! It’s that time of the year again, when I get to be an official photographer for the Kings of Concrete festival, woohoo!

The Kings of Concrete is a 2 day festival held in the ground of the Dublin Civic Offices in Wood Quay, Dublin. It’s a brilliant festival that features and focuses on mostly ignored activites, like skateboarding, parkour, B-boy dancing, MC-ing (not sure what the verb to MC is), graffiti/street art, rollerblading, BMXing…and that’s all I can think of right now but there’s also workshops so anyone can learn these same skills. You can learn how to print your own tshirts, how to breakdance, do caperoia (prob spelt wrong, I’m tired right now), how to MC and lots more.

It’s also a chance to be able to approach graffiti artists, which isn’t something I can normally do. I managed to overcome my aweness/shyness and talk to a few of them about their work and just in general talk to them.

So, here are some of my favourite street art pieces from Saturday 25th July 2009:

That’s all I’m gonna show you of Day 1, but there’s more on my Flickr page!

Day 2 pictures will be put up sometime this week, my eyes need a rest from going through 1000 photos!

Oh and one more thing: a poster that I made of His Noodliness, Flying Spaghetti Monster proclaiming his love of the Kings Of Concrete

He loves the Kings Of Concrete!

Papercraft

This post is all about papercraft. For those who don’t know me, I spent a year and a half working in IT services in an university . During the summer, exams, mid term breaks and all that sort of thing, the uni gets extremely quiet and there’s very little to do, except make use of full access internet and a colour printer. (My StumbleUpon ratio was ridiculous!)

So, in order to keep my sanity sort of intact, I began making papercraft models with templates I found on the internet.

If you’re interested in making them yourself, there’s LOADS of templates online that are free to print out and make. They can make great little presents for people and I greatly enjoyed making them!

Here’s a selection of my favourites models that I made (links to original sites included):

I made several papercrafts over the space of about 10 months, most of them in work. I gave them away as my final parting gift to my job:

That’s all for now. I tend to be quite critical of my work so there’s not many in this list (that and I have over 20gbs of photos which I’m not prepared to go though each and every photo!). The rest of my stuff can be found on my Flickr and DeviantArt page if you’d like to take a look! (My Flickr page is updated more often than DA.)
