(This is the #1 result for "big fish in a small pond." But it's a shark. How could you benefit from creating concepts?)Can I let you in on a dirty little secret?A lot of designers out there don't want to admit it, but, well...There are a lot of us who have "concept" lightboxes.We don't like to talk about it because it's almost as bad as having "miscellaneous" lightboxes in which to dump all sorts of weird stuff that doesn't make sense to a more specific category.I think the... continue reading
BAM! Oof! Snikt! Pow!Heroes are ingrained deeply into our culture. From ancient Greece to Gotham City, heroes help us tell our story of what it means to be human through their powerful symbols, epic plot lines, Herculean feats, and mysterious superpowers. Not to mention the evil super villains they fight. Heroes are representative of our sports teams and company brands. (Indeed, on websites, the main image is often called a "hero," for it shares some qualities of a superhero.)The storytelling... continue reading

Besides photography I am a writer so with the advent of self publishing through Amazon I decided to put out some novels and short stories. The process is very much "do it yourself" from typing, to layout, to cover design. So I have taken on the role of designer for the books and it has been fun to look at photographs for cover illustration from a different point of view.
