The Great American Smoke-Out and the Imagery It Inspires

Don't quit your regular job just yet!

Ever wonder how fast"penny" stock ( that's usually how much we get paid ) is growing? Type in any image you're looking for and see how many pages pop up.

If it's on page 289, do you think an art director will have the perseverance to go through all those previous pages to find your image? Scary isn't it. Sometimes I wonder how I sell any images!Anyways,... continue reading

Reasons Why You Should Give Up and Quit Stock

And let my dad (as i am not a smoker) to use it as a real... continue reading

Off Topic: My Week Of Glory

My Week Of GloryTo any confirmed smoker, the thought of stopping the dependency of nicotine scares them to half to death. "Will I ever be the same again?"

I was the same as I would regularly confess my love for the precious weed.For the last few years I have been telling myself "I need to quit," and being told the same thing by friends and family. The only question in my mind was choosing the right time. A time that I envisioned... continue reading
