Just Married! Well… in February

Just a brief update to let everyone know I am still alive. Heh!  Got married even.  I married the beautiful Ashley Worley on Feb 24, 2017 in Las Vegas.  We married on our 5 year dating anniversary.  Thanks to everyone who made the trip and all the support from those who did not.  It was a fantastic celebration of our love for each other.  Although it isn’t updated that often, we do have a page together at

E Squared Abstract Art Studio has launched!

E Squared Studio has officially opened! Ok, so it is an Etsy Store, but I am still pretty excited about it. After many suggestions by friends and acquaintances to sell my digital art, I finally broke down and set up a storefront.

Digital Abstract

Black Plastique – Digital Abstract

All abstract Art in the E Squared Studio was created by me, Eric Courtney. It is a product of digital photography with a technique that is quite unorthodox to typical abstract photography created by abstract photographers. The majority of abstracts in this studio were created with a “base technique” that relies solely on movement, light and brilliant colors entering the lens for an acceptable balance of chaos and composition. Some of the pieces listed have had additional post work added to help the finished process along.

Single Malt – Digital Abstract

Print Quality: Prints are made with exquisite Fine Art Papers using a high-resolution large format inkjet printer in a professional printing lab, and we’re not talking Costco here folks. I want my work to be produced only on quality materials. That being said, I will be upgrading to giclee options soon — and I have already started to add canvas options to select works. If you have a special request, weather it be paper or mounting options, or you want a one of a kind exclusive commissioned piece, please don’t hesitate to message me and we can discuss and hopefully execute your request.

Hardcore Henry Official Trailer

Hardcore Henry Official Trailer.  In theaters April 8, 2016.  I saw this trailer yesterday before Zoolander 2 (which was complete crap compared to the first one — which was also crap, just not as smelly).  I know first-person shooter gamers will be/should be excited for this film.  I am not a gamer, but I am very interested to see this film based on the first person angle it was shot in.  This movie looks like it is very fast paced, and loaded with action.  From a first person angle, drama would bore the viewer quickly so I imagine we can expect to see a lot less stimulating dialogue and a lot more visual effects.  After watching the trailer in the theater, my girlfriend mentioned to me that she might get dizzy trying to watch a feature length film that has been shot using this technique.  It is an interesting point, and it does make sense, but I love innovation.  Whether I can drag her to see it in April remains to be seen, but based on the trailer below…  I am going to check it out!

Check out the theatrical trailer below!
