Coreyshead 2013 Calendar of Distortions

November 27th, 2012 by Corey A. Edwards

The Coreyshead 2013 Calendar of Distortions.

Awreety, awright – it’s time once again for me to pimp my wares (as opposed to “where’s my pimp?”) and offer you with absolutely no shame dsplayed, my 7th “annual” photography calendar.

Don’t expect to see a buncha flower images from me all of a sudden. Flower photos are like love poems: everyone has one and they all stink.

Or something like that.

Anyway, this is mine: crocus, I think. A nasty pop-culture infection has that name conjuring up memories of a bad Sweet cover: it’s, it’s the ballroom blech!

Peash out.

A&W Rootbeer (or was it Shasta soda? some other company?) had at least one commercial in the early seventies featuring clips of early automobiles crashing into each other around the notion of the beverage’s excessive foaminess.

For some reason, these commercials really struck a nerve in me and, though I was never much of a soda fan, I developed an early appreciation for vintage vehicles – particularly ruined ones; the less intact they are, the more riddled with rust, the more interested I become.

This old water tanker rests picturesquely in the front yard of my girlfriend’s rented house. It took me a couple of months but I finally crawled out there with a camera.

Murray Christmas!

December 25th, 2010 by Corey A. Edwards

I really need to work up a new gag for the holidays but at least this is a different shot from the ’06 session – Murray Christmas, everyone.

One of the last toys I ever bought, the Bandai, B-Club reissue of the Bullmark Aboras was long sought.

Something about this toy’s whimsical grin (at least on one side, the other side of his face is rather unfriendly, as if the sculptor was of two moods during the process … or just inept) has always pleased me to no end.

The toy has spent the last few months perched on a living room stereo speaker (the only figure toy in evidence in my home proper) in the hope that it would inspire me.

It has. I hope you like the results as much as I do – more of the same is on the way.

Nostalgic Heroes “Tetsujin 26”

I wonder – was he riding that bike or does he just maintain it?

If the former, then how does he get around the deck support? Was he assembled down there?

Mebbe there’s another egress …

Bandai “Hanejiro”

This was a very simple set-up, as I’m sure you can imagine: A basic head-on with lots off diffuse light on my subject, then a simple two-part layer of the wall and a slight mask of the window to insert the toy.

So simple I almost felt like I was cheating.

For a final effect, I cut out a large section of the top window, which I applied to Hanejiro via a clipping mask, then brought said layer’s opacity down until the toy looked like it was behind the window.

A little bit of stenciling to include my sig and: voila.

I may like this shot best of the three I did this weekend even thought it was so danged easy: the unexpected, goofy charm of Hanejiro’s face up in the window … it perfectly embodies my attitude and aim when making these ridiculous pics …

Medicom RAH “Dada”

I’ve had this shot (hell, all this week’s outside shots) for a long time and have “published” a few of them before, sans toys of course.

#15: Citrene and Quartz

Somehow … back at it.

B-Club “Daigoro”

The next thing you know I’m paging through old backgrounds and snapping pictures of a toy, my mind awhirl with projects, themes, and other forms of sheer pointlessness.

It’s this kind of stuff that “holds me back” and ensures that I’ll never “make it.”

But you know what? I don’t really care anymore. They’re just too fun to make.

(my daughter says he needs a package)

Phantom Pains

November 15th, 2008 by Corey A. Edwards

Not having you
for a lover or a best friend
feels foreign
like awakening to a missing limb

Chronicle of My Dissatisfaction

September 30th, 2006 by Corey A. Edwards


this blog began as a section on my site called “Infinite Diarrhea” which I took down very shortly after starting it because … people were reading it. This, in turn, was causing problems in my already failing marriage …


Chronicle, a company that turned down my Japanese toy book proposal after initially accepting it because they “didn’t know how to market it,” is publishing a book entitled “Stuff on My Cat”: a pictorial collection featuring photographs of cats with things on top of them – you know, action figures, breadsticks, bowling balls, that sort of thing.
