Rich poses the Shook mesh for me a 3rd time. Hopefully, I'll get the focus change from manual to auto worked out in the future.
Friday, June 3, 2011 and Doug Charleville from Virginia was in town.
My idea for a demo kite so people would know who makes the kite.
I wanted to get a shot of the real sun shining through the kite red sun, but didn't get any good ones. Oh well.
My first Revolution poster. And yes, that dual line kite (bottom right) is a Revolution.
My 2nd Revolution poster. And yes, once again, the kite in the lower right hand corner is a Rev.
My 3rd Revolution Poster. This one specifically targets the crossed line possibilities when flying large groups of them. The upper left photo shows point intersection of 68 lines (17 Revs). The middle right photo shows point intersection of 72 lines (18 Revs).
(text: Kent Kingston) Revolution kite given away during the raffle. This kite was made by Dean Jordan in cooperation with Revolution. It is a 1.5 model and looks very sweet.
One of only 3 Randy Tom Nagel-inspired Double Heads made in 2010. Note the airbrush on hair, lips and background center blue panel. Very nice.
Randy Tom Vampire Rose Masterpiece Rev. The airbrush work kept getting de-emphasized in the photos. So, I spent about 2 hours in Photoshop putting back in the airbrush details and adding a better background. Actually, the kite does look pretty much like this in the proper light.
