The winters are long and hard

Beautiful and dreamy, step into the world of jude mcconkey.

jude mcconkey bio: I’m a newspaper photographer by trade, but a fine art photographer by desire. I love using photoshop to enhance my work and prefer dreamy, intense, and yes, even creepy images full of emotion.

Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, I now live in the wilds of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where the winters are long and hard.

Evidently, I like necks

Light and comfortable jewelry? Who would say no to that. Oh, plus it is so luxe yet clean. No easy feat to pull off.

Zombies and Monsters and Cells, Oh My

Delicate flowers may wish to avert their eyes, but the rest of you must bravely soldier on and see the great work in daspetey’s shop.

About the Zombie series: my obsession with the walking dead seems limitless. i have written songs, animated short stories, and now made paintings and block prints of them. maybe when the zombie apocalypse happens, i will be spared by the discerning undead, and made custodian of their legacy. at the very least, i can beat the zombies back with canvases bearing their likeness. this is a 6″x6″ hand-pulled block print on textured paper. it is not a real zombie. it cannot harm you.

Words to live by. Check it out.
