*yes, I can spell endless. no, I cannot change it now because the link would be broken FOREVERRRRRR. I can also spell forever.
Handy Andy Pandy– a photographer guaranteed to take you on a wild adventure. *Disclaimer-I can only guarantee the adventure to be while you look at his work and cannot vouch for a direct invitation from him to take you on an actual-in-person adventure, however, I am fairly confident he would say yes if you invite yourself.
As is becoming the case these days with the [fa]fine art photography Facebook group multiplying like creative infused-hormone breeding mice, I found HAP posting his insane 365 project on the walls of the group.
His work is pure genius. I can’t even begin to imagine what would happen if I had a moment to crawl inside his ginger-haired mind and look around. He has more ideas than Montana has snow flakes.
From his vivid colors to his stellar use of Photoshop, he is a creator of the utmost sort. I always thought the British made a good choice shipping those convicts over to Australia and time and time again, it is proven that they sent the most hilarious and creative felons to procreate and produce future a nation of artistic masterminds. Most of my favorite artists hail from Oz and Handy Andy Pandy is no exception.
Aside from being a brilliant artist, he is also a top notch writer. If you are someone who enjoys wallowing in your own depression, I do not recommend reading his blog or interviews, because you will be catapulted out of your misery within minutes.
But even more exciting is the fact that he has just announced that he will be writing for F Stop Lounge with a weekly column. He is by far one of my favorite writers out there. I am glued to his posts waiting for his next hysterical interview and highly recommend that you do the same.
Gabe and I are always drawn to other artists who thrive on sharing and collaborating, which is probably why I am so enamored with this crazy man and his work.
In his own words, yes, you’re hearing them here first: “Reach out to other photographers, say hi, send an email to people whose work you admire. Connect. You’ll find almost everybody is just as friendly as you are, even the ones whose work is so amazing it intimidates you.”
