Next Order of Business to launch my Brother, Mark's website today!!!

Mark is creating cooler and cooler tattoos by the day and I'm so happy that he's finally in a profession which showcases the artistic abilities I always knew he had. It's safe to say that if I hadn't seen him drawing while I was growing up, I probably wouldn't have been inspired to choose a profession in the arts.

As with my own website, I will be adding more content to his galleries in the days ahead as I receive new images from him. Check out his cool designs today and stop back often! My personal favorites have always been his frogs, lizards and dragons.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Shamrocks have such a delicate beauty to them. I love the way they fold down like little umbrellas and go to sleep at night. :)

May brooks and trees and singing hills
Join in the chorus too,
And every gentle wind that blows
Send happiness to you.

First Order of Business: Cosmic Playground

It is entirely appropriate that my first real entry on this blog should be about Rod. Rod DeGeorge is an amazing guitarist who has been my mentor and friend over the years. When he approached me to design the package for his first solo Cd, needless to say I was thrilled!!! :D

These are selected images from that package.* The original photography, done by Rick Sweitzer, I had altered to suit this project. Repeated images and subtle colors from the front cover are woven in.

As a designer, one of the things highly important to me is matching my client's personal style and vision for their projects. I can create images that are colorful and complex, that are clean classic and simple, or subtly in between. Rod is also a part of the band Burnt Sienna*. Where their poster design is fun and playful, Rod's is more rich and I hope conveys a sense of the joyful spirituality in his playing.

Check out Rod's new Cd, Cosmic Playground on the web!:

There is more on my website.*

Launch Day

Throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. ~ Mark Twain

Welcome to "The Blog" Everybody! Today has been such a great day to launch my website, Leshock The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and I couldn't be happier. My site is lonnnnng overdue.

My intentions for this blog essentially are for this place to be a showcase for the many facets of what I do and to relate news of any special projects or offers I have going on. This is a designer's blog, a photographer's blog, an artist's blog. Since I am also a proud sister, I will also occasionally feature some of the tattoo design my brother has been up to.

Where the posts relate to my photography work, all images will be available for sale or prints unless otherwise noted by me. If you do not find it in my "Shop", just email me to request a print. Final prints will not have the watermark that appears on the web images. I have the feeling that the content on my site will be in constant flux.

Thanks Again for checking out my website! I certainly appreciate ~Everyone~ who has been supportive of my creativity over the years and especially those who have allowed me to create something beautiful or interesting for them.
