Creative: Would you?

I have a question. Would you pay for the content on this site? Go ahead, take a minute to gather yourself. Take a deep breath. Be honest. My guess is no. The reason I ask is that I’m routinely questioned … Read More

Creative: Cover Design, Same Image

I’ve done cover design posts before, but I think this one is a good one. At least a good visual post. I created this post because I see a lot of bad covers coming through the Blurb network.(I see plenty … Read More

I was invited on an early morning boat trip down the coast. The reason for the trip was very personal and not something I want to share here, but I do want to share a few of the images. I … Read More

Read: Braving It

Books like Braving It are like candy to me. You open, start eating and suddenly you are on a serious sugar high. Alaska, father and daughter, epic conditions and the ever changing land and family relationships. I did a five-day … Read More

Adventure: California Training

I’m in big trouble. Real trouble. My brain is again feeling free. For the first time in four years. Not perfect, just free. I tend to change my life dramatically every five years or so, and I can feel another … Read More

Dispatches: Esha Chiocchio

Yes, I did a composite image. I just felt like Esha is a blend of so many things that an image like this made sense. You can tell a lot about someone by spending time around their children, and Esha … Read More
