Well hopefully I have promoted ShowEros well enough to see some of you there. I'll be busy the next few weeks getting sets on there and stuff so I probably won't have much time to post any samples here or respond to messages. Follow me:

Not really posting much here anymore though I am definitely still shooting. Members of my Zip Club get access to everything but as I post sets to ShowEros I have been removing them from here. I'll definitely be posting non-nude photos and such here but I am making all nude stuff exclusive to sites like Zivity and ShowEros. Naughty stuff obviously goes to ShowEros since Zivity has pretty strict rules. 

Note me to join my Zip Club. Members get behind the scenes pics, videos and sexy selfies shot by models and other exclusives. One Zip Club member disappeared off the face of the Earth so I have 1 more opening. I only plan to let in like 2 or 3 members per year.

Anyway, editing pics of one of my models playing with a toy for the Zip Club then crashing. It was a weird day and my Kool-Aid is in Seattle so I have to sleep alone :(

I'm gonna delete a bunch of old sets this week. Note me if you want them half price. They will of course stay in the Zip Club Archives for those members who maybe didn't grab 'em yet but if you in the Zip Club I would make sure to save them because chances are I will replace them with new edits. Zivity sets I am not too concerned with but stuff that is on other sites needs to come down eventually as well. So this is what I am removing first:

Operation Bikini Set Part 01 by tatehemlockHarley Hope Mini Set by tatehemlockA Moment of Truth Set Part 01 by tatehemlockFull Nude by tatehemlockOn The Stairs Mini Set by tatehemlockKaz Test Shoot by tatehemlockBubbles Of Joy Set 01 by tatehemlock

A bunch of older sets are being replaced by newer versions when I finish editing them as I no longer like the old versions. I'm like George Lucas LOL I look at old shit and it just pisses me off.

It seems every time I get a new monitor I can't stand the way older pics look and I just want to delete them and re-edit them. That test shoot especially makes me angry. I don't know, it just looks dark and rushed.

Anyway, let me know.

Last year I started a thing called the Zip Club where basically the members get EVERY single photo set I post as well as access to a private group on the web where I post behind the scenes photos and videos that get posted nowhere else. Some of the sets are exclusive to the Zip Club like Harley's bubble bath set.

Anyway, once we got the private group and could interact better and it made it easier to share exclusive content I really got way more excited about the Club in general.

So when I started it I decided to cap it off at 10 members. Recently two of the members seemed to have disappeared. They have not responded to email's or on here. Nor been active on this site for what appears to be some time. So I have decided to go ahead and open the Club up to two new members.

Basically it is $150 for an Annual Membership or $250 for a Lifetime Membership. Right now there are about 100 Zip Sets in the Club. Most average around $10 on this site so that's almost $1000 worth of photos for almost a quarter of the price.

Note me if you are interested. I can send you screencaps of what the Club is like :)

Once I have 2 new members the offer closes until such time as the first Annual membership expires (unless of course they choose to renew)...

And I have listened. I was curious how people felt about Digital Downloads. Mainly sets versus individual photos. I even did a poll. Despite the fact the overwhelming majority prefer the sets, there are a lot of people who prefer individual photo downloads, all for good and different reasons. Sooooo, in the future I will offer up sets as a full set and try to offer them up as individual downloads as well. The tricky part is that's easy for sets that are 20 pics or less. When a set is 175 pics? Gah!!!

Anyway, you can help me out in regards to older sets. If there is an older set you saw and didn't buy but saw a pic in it that interested you, just note me about it! I'm more than happy to either hook it up somehow directly or to post it here.

And a note to buyers, Deviant Art does not notify me as to WHO makes a purchase. I have no way to thank you individually other than right here. So thank you so very much for the sales! You help me in ways you can't even imagine :) And don't be shy about messaging me to say, "Hey I just bought this photo or set." I'd definitely like to know. If anything to thank you and throw a llama your way.

I have been busy this weekend prepping a bunch of new features and exclusives for the members of my Zip Club. I am really happy and excited about this!!!! The Zip Club definitely had some bumps and issues to resolve since I started it last year. Having a number of people in it that needed to be informed regularly of new content and then getting said content into their hands. E-mail was soooooo boring. It didn't have the exciting, fun qualities I wanted it to have. So MAJOR SHOUT OUT to kilkegard for his help and expertise in smoothing some of these issues out and help shaping the Club into what it is now. Prepping that awesome exclusive Harley bubble bath shoot today!!!! I'm so excited and pleased I am considering adding another person or two to the Club. Especially now that contacting/communicating with the members has been made so much easier :)

Anyway, back to editing and IM'ing with my Kool-Aid, dying to see her face <3 Gah.

UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
**********************************

Shit I totally forgot. This set:

Windowpane Extras by tatehemlock

Is being discontinued. I re-edited all of them and like the new versions better. The difference is really subtle. Other than the logo being my new one you probably wouldn't tell right away, I just like how I edit now versus how I edited then. Sooooooooo before I put the new version up I am giving you a chance to get the old set for only $5. Just note me for specifics. Eventually I will be replacing the entire series but I started with the Extras :)

If you aren't that picky you can basically have this set for half price. But yeah otherwise pulling this off DevArt. :)

Well instead of going off on all the trolls and Negative Nancy's that have contributed to this site's decline I'll give ya the part of the rant that I think is important enough to be addressed:

Sales Notifications

And another thing? Why doesn't freaking Deviant Art tell us who made a freaking purchase?!?! Seriously. Not only would it be kind and courteous to THANK the purchaser it would be an opportunity to communicate with them and potentially INCREASE some fucking sales. Why did you buy this set? Or what drew you to this photo? The style? The model? What kind of photos do you tend to buy on here? What types of photos would you buy more of?

Sometimes someone will note and say, "Hey I bought a Kaz set, do you have any more?" But not always.

It's frustrating to see sales happen and have no means to acknowledge them. Yet get message after message from fucking retards whose sole concept of art seems to consist of crayon doodles of rainbows.


OK I felt that part of the rant was worth keeping. The rest was about the same issues that come up again and again here. I saw a photographer friend the other day and asked "What happened to your Deviant Art?" And he was like, "I left." He's not the only one who abandoned this site. :(

!!!!!!!!!!!!UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Go like this link and respond!!!

support.deviantart.com/entries…

This will help us as sellers be able to properly thank you for your support! It's ridiculous that we are notified of a sale but not told by whom!!!!

*********** UPDATE **********

I did the smart thing and didn't save my drunk rant about pony artists and trolls and posted the above, hit enter and went to bed.

HOWEVER, waking up hungover me re-read said rant and I am realllllllly considering POSTING IT ANYWAY. Gonna look it over again tonight. Hmmmmm.

So I have been inviting people to ShowEros to check out my sets there:

www.showeros.com/?m=ZOGRFXEFYH…


One thing I wanted to point out is really all I ask of you is you join up and then go LIKE all my sets! We basically get rewarded for likes so even if you don't buy any of the sets just Liking them, Faving them and adding them to lists helps me out immensely.

Now initially I intended to make all my ShowEros sets available here as well.  Unfortunately I can't now. One model got in trouble because a family member disliked some of her pics they found on this site. The other one is going through some court shit and I took all her nudes off the web (except for on ShowEros cuz she said that OK). Soooo I'm still willing to sell these sets to you directly, you'll have to check out ShowEros to figure out which ones they are.

The sets I do have on this site so far are:

Flare Set by tatehemlockKill Rock Stars Set by tatehemlockClean Very Clean Remix Part 01 by tatehemlockTeaches of Peaches Set by tatehemlockChanging The Colors of Life Set by tatehemlockFlower Child Set Part 02 by tatehemlockBunny Set by tatehemlockCosplay Cutie Set Alternate Edits by tatehemlockOn The Stairs Mini Set by tatehemlockModern Art Cover by tatehemlockFlower Child Full Size Set Part 1 by tatehemlockA Moment of Truth Set Part 01 by tatehemlockA Moment of Truth Set Part 01 Color by tatehemlock

Note as well that the Flower Child Part 1 set has 33 pics here but only 21 on ShowEros. And then I only put up 21 samples on ShowEros of this 175 pic set:

Do You Believe In Magic? Part 01 by tatehemlockDo You Believe In Magic? Part 02 by tatehemlockDo You Believe In Magic? Part 03 by tatehemlock
I'm working on getting the rest up. So keep your eyes open.

If you are interested in the 6 sets from ShowEros that I cannot post here send me a NOTE!! On ShowEros to buy all 6 sets it would cost ya a total of $85!!! HOLY SHIT. However I will sell them all to you directly for only $35!!! SMOKING DEAL. Let me know. I won't offer them this cheap for too long!!!!!!!!

If you did join the site, leave a comment so I know who has and PLEASE just go like my stuff!! Like every new thing I post LOL

Thank you!! :)

I was pretty upset when I broke up with my girlfriend and got all pissed and put everything in storage. But we resolved things and I am taking them out of storage. It is taking forever!!!!!!! Deviant Art doesn't automatically put them back in Featured. You have to go do each one manually.

Anyway, I noticed some of the older pics and sets were really high priced compared to how I normally price them now so I have been lowering the price on stuff as I go. I'm trying to notify people of my progress here and there by choosing the Notify Your Watchers option in Edit mode.

Anyway, up to Feb 2012. So almost done. Fingers crossed I can finish tonight cuz I have new pics I am sitting on to post...

So due to circumstances beyond my control my latest set won't be posted on Deviant Art :( It's Part 2 of the super hot A Moment of Truth series and does include pics too HOT for Deviant Art anyway. You can find it here:

Still trying to catch up. My Work In Progress folder on my desktop now has like 20 sub-folders in it. Harass me to remind me.

Soooo one of my sets got a model in trouble. Don't have to pull it but the rest of it won't be on here. If you want an invite to see the rest of the set on ShowEros note me.

Couple hints: She's a tigress. Brian Eno. Did a naughty shoot with my ex-gf. Tattoos. Frosting.

Ok, sooooo haven't been her for some time. This week I will pick a winner for my contest. Also gonna try to ship off a print someone bought THAT I STILL HAVEN'T MAILED. Yes, I suck, I am sorry.

What else? I don't know. Ummm, I guess you should follow me on ShowEros. I have a ton of new sets up there that I haven't even posted here yet. OK more later.

CONTEST

This is the last call for entries!!!!!!!!! I only got three so far so I might wait some time before doing another one :(

OK, I want to go back to editing so that is all. WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY BEHIND...

Had a hoot of a time for the most part LOL Didn't get to shoot BevZoe though :(

This is worrisome. My new computer suddenly stopped reading the main external that has all my photos on it. If I try plugging it in it doesn't see it immediately and then slowly notices it but it makes Windows Explorer crash. Reads just fine on the old computer. I'm kind of at a loss. 

Any tech guys got an idea what could be happening other than it's dying and needs to be replaced ASAP?

Chances are I might need to do some serious sales this weekend because this is the drive with my last two years worth of work on it. I can't get it open to edit the pics :(

By the way, Captain America: The Winter Soldier was AWESOME. I freaking loved it!!

Soooo I am just getting back into the swing of things after Sunday's MASSIVE hangover. I had a blast at Phoenix Forum!! I met some cool people. Got to hang with Irene Savona, Raymond Prax and some other friends you may or may not know LOL

Pics and videos from my camera still need to be sent to the contributors. Just giving you a heads up.

Anya Alternative and I will be traveling to LA this weekend. Really hoping to visit with BevZoe and shoot in Hollywood!! Let me know silly goose.

Sooooo I have SOOOO MUCH STUFF TO POST. Another teaser but first I got to catch up on all the pics i am behind on. So again, please be patient. Back in my groove. Got a new computer. It's fast and it's niiiiice!

And enter my Contest!!!!! GAH!!!

New Contest!!! The theme this time is FAMOUS MONSTERS!!!

The rules are you can take any photo in my Deviant Art gallery and using ANY art form turn it into a MONSTER!! Rawr!! It can be a painting or a comic book story or stencil art or a photo manipulation, vector art, etc. etc. Any kind of art!! The only limit is your imagination. So turn Beverly Zoey into a vampire or Irene Savona into a ghoul. Maybe make a Frankenstein's monster out of a couple models (not literally mind you, I'd like to keep them around)!! I do however suggest that you avoid photos that are already monster related. Just cuz that would be too easy. Unless say you take one of Gwen Cassidy's vampire pics and turn her into a werewolf. But don't take a vampire pic and turn it into a vampire pic. However you could take a vampire pic and make a full on motherfucking painting out of it!

Anyway, any monster works, be it the Mummy or Godzilla. Be creative! I love seeing digital paintings, pencil drawings, graffiti, etc. You can also have one of the models in my pics meet a monster or have her running away from a monster. Or perhaps King Kong is taking one up to the top of the Empire State Building. Sky's the limit!!

As always, the winner will be determined by the number of faves and comments they accrue during the course of the contest in both their gallery and mine. So once you post your entry, tag me in it so I can go grab it and add it to mine. That's twice as many opportunities to collect comments and faves! Promote in your Journals too!!!

And in the interest of fair play I always kindly suggest that you fave the other entrants submissions. Cuz the whole point is to have fun and see what other artists create and meet new artists! As of right meow, the winner will get 500 points though I am looking to add to that and/or throw in something else. And that's that boys and ghouls, may the best monster win!!

Also, I did make a little promo image for the contest. Just remember I am not expecting a bunch of Famous Monsters covers LOL It was just my fave magazine as a kid and inspired the contest title so I made one as a promotional image for fun and my own shits and giggles LOL

Peeps who donated! Hiiiii First round of pics, unedited mind ya, is uploading to the server and you should check your e-mail.

Just an FYI, someone pointed out to me that people who happen to be in the pics might also want copies. So I was like, "Oh yeah." So other than giving it to any of them (if they ask), these are exclusive to you. But I definitely posted a pic of that rat bastard RaymondPrax because it's pretty funny. Oh and a pic of a midget arguing with a dude. I figured, "It's not a sexy chick." I might have posted a few Instagrams because I was pretty lit. Open bars tend to draw me in like a moth to a flame LOL

Anyway, waking up, showering and heading back. I am hungover. Last night the bar closed at 5 AM. 5 AM. 5 AM. That's cool as shit since bars in Arizona close at 2 AM.
