On Anarchy: Introductions

I've had this story idea bouncing around in my head. Actually, it's so visual, it's really a comic book idea, but that's way too much work. So what I'm going to be doing is writing it here in my journal. I'm not going to write much every day, but I will write at least a little into it. All of the posts will be entitled "On Anarchy", and I'll provide a set of links down the side of my journal so people can pick it up.


Terrorist (n): One that engages in an act of terrorism.

Yeah, that was in a dictionary. I know, I looked it up. Damn, my sixth grade english teacher would have failed me with a vocabulary excersise like that!

Terrorism (n): The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons.

That's more like it.

There's installment one. Rough start, if I do say so, but then again, considering that I only have a character idea for Le Contesse, that's to be expected. One character and a vague idea of the plot makes it fairly difficult to draft these out. Next "issue", I'll actually explore these characters and go someplace with it. But right now, I have to pee. I'll set up a box for links to this later.

Stairs

This is down the block from my house, along East Strand Rd. which is a delightfully industrial strip. I made a few dupped layers, one I hypersaturated then blended with transparency. I took the result, dupped that layer, inverted it, blurred it, and overlayed it.

That left the stairs with an annoying color cast, so I took the original image, which has less saturation, and pieced it over the stairs themselves, giving them the grey look. I left some of the leaves grey, recolored others.
