New Season, New Plans

It’s been a while since I updated this blog, mostly because I haven’t had much spare time this semester. However I am getting back into the swing of things now that school is coming to a close. I’m starting the summer strong with a brand new project I’m finally getting around to:

I’m very excited to announce that I will be starting an online vintage and secondhand clothing boutique via Etsy called Hazelspit Vintage!

Hazelspit Vintage will consist of various vintage and secondhand/thrifted clothes, and curioso. I hope to eventually expand it to include custom designed and handmade t-shirts, as well as other handmade, dyed, and altered clothing, not to mention fine art. For now the shop will be focused entirely on women’s fashion, particularly secondhand designer and brand name clothing.

I’m so thrilled to finally be making moves to get this project off the ground, as it’s been a goal of mine for some time. I’m also developing some more creative projects to occupy my spare time this summer. I’m finally getting around to making music again, and will be collaborating with a couple DJs to get back into the groove of things. My soundcloud may actually contain original works in the future! XD I’m also planning a series of interview based documentary style youtube videos on a variety of social and philosophical topics. All in all, the coming season promises many creative outlets!


Unpuzzled: Making a Frame Grab GIF

In my quest to understand GIF making, I present my rendition of an ‘Art’ GIF. This shot was pulled from the psychedelic art film Blond Superfreak Steals the Magic Brain, a collaboration between The Flaming Lips and Miley Cyrus.

Magic brain, indeed.

Magic brain, indeed.

I really like how it turned out. The subtlety is lovely, she blinks and the brain wiggles. I love the angle of this shot. But as I was editing I started to wonder if it looked a bit too peaceful, so I looked some way to add a bit more color. My original idea was to make the bed spread change colors gradually. I found a video of a colored light fading through a rainbow and over layed it. Not the effect I was looking for specifically, but I really like how it came out none the less:


I’m so fancy.
