LED Hooping at Farview

Post by the Hawthorne Hawkman, photo by Scottie Tuska.

One of my favorite artists is an illustrator by the name of David Mack.  Mack is most famous for his Kabuki graphic novel series, but also published long exposure photos where he made drawings using light.   Since then, I've been fascinated by the artistic combination of light, motion, and photography, and took my own similar shots at the Chicago Fire Arts Center opening.

Several hula hoopers got together last week and Scottie photographed us with the city skyline in the background.  This was the first attempt at such pictures, and there will likely be more.  The series can be found at his flickr account, and Scottie also has his own blog.
