Description This is the cover art from the 1970's magazine UFO Flying Saucers, which surprisingly when looked back at from 2010, published excellent historical renactments of actual UFO suspected incidents so common in the 50's and 60's.
Mike Gravino, Guilford, CT Member Since May 2009 Artist Statement A big shout-back to ImageKind for setting up this community and shared technology platform.
Most of the imagery and the products I am offering through Imagekind are from a brick and mortar eBay trading post business I had on the shore in Connecticut with my late kid sister, Jennifer. My niece Cathy, Jennifer's daughter, also participated. Together we sold over 10,000 items online through eBay for local merchants and customers. As part of this activity we shot over 75,000 digital photos using an original floppy-disk Sony Mavica. The form-factor of the camera was large, heavy, but a true joy to work with compared to all of the ensuing high-tech features which have come since. Enjoy our Hummel, Swarovski, Beatrix Potter, and some weird images.
Images are also offered from the WUFO TV Network which I programmed. It aired on broadcast TV in Washington, DC during 2007/08. The content of the Network was an "alternative knowledge" format of UFO's, ancient mysteries, crop circles, DaVinci Code, great animation, kids science programming, holistic health, green, etc.
My current venture is ARCHIVE HOUSE MEDIA which in May 2010 is launching www.EarthChronicles.tv, a new linear and on-demand channel based on the collected works of the speculative history scholar and author Zecharia Sitchin. The site will be generating under its' own Imagekind site a considerable amount of content.
I accept commissions for portrait work, but I must warn you of a complusion and passion I have of the human face. Sometime later this year I will be offering a fifteen-year creative project called "3face".
