Album Cover Wall Art Display Ideas

I’ve been meaning to share this album cover wall art display idea for awhile, but life had other ideas in mind. Those who follow me on social media may recall that last year I did a series of art prints featuring the legendary Sun … Read More

Wine With Your Art This May

Long time followers may remember this cool promotion from last year. If you did take part last time, though, you’ll want to send this to a friend instead. This offer is only available to first time customers of Naked Wines. If that’s you then good news, … Read More

UK Print Partner & Other News

Have you ever noticed how sometimes things have a way of working themselves out? In my last update, I mentioned that I was in the process of migrating my main print partner away from the Zenfolio based site that I had used for the … Read More

What It Means to Be an Artist

Why do some photographers not consider themselves artists? This is seriously a question that haunts me some days. If I had a nickle for every time I encountered a photographer in various art forums who wanted to be strictly styled as a photographer rather … Read More

The Price Of Art Merchandise

This is a subject for both the art-lovers and the art-makers out there. It’s a topic which I’d say I ruminate on at least annually, and that’s whether or not to offer art merchandise in addition to prints. Once upon a time, I was … Read More

The Sacred World – New Surreal Art

I’m sure there are many old friends out there who would be a bit surprised to see me wander down the woodland path towards fantasy and surreal art. Even though my artwork often has a bit of a fanciful air to it, my images … Read More

Custom 2014 Calendars On Request

Do you ever have the best of intentions and find time slipping between your fingers? I know I do! And for me, reminding people about calendars always slips through until I suddenly look at the calendar and it’s December already! So, I’m doing good … Read More

New eBook Cover Design

A few months ago,  I posted about Charlotte Moore’s Deep South Dead, which used my eBook cover design. I’m happy to report that Ms. Moore felt that first design was successful enough to warrant using my services a second time. And yes, the second … Read More

Window shopping for mirrorless cameras

It’s no secret I’ve been looking at mirrorless cameras for awhile now. When I wrote a post about my current camera gear two years ago, I was already suggesting people who were looking at their first camera take a look at the Micro Four … Read More

Art Contest Results

Well, anything profound I had to say about art contests I got out of the way in the last update! So, this should be mercifully short.  Round one ended this evening and my photo from Galway Ireland which had the most votes for my … Read More

Art Contests – Oh My

For a period of time, I was ever interested in art contests. I enjoyed participating in a few real world ones early on, but I’ve largely bowed out of the process. Partially this is because so many contests these days, particularly the ones you … Read More

First Book Cover!

When I posted my Spring update the other day, I was sitting on one piece of news. Now, however, it’s fair game to announce my first book cover! Well, I guess technically it’s more like my third book cover since I have done a … Read More

Spring Has Sprung Updates

I’ve done an incredibly bad job of delivering updates this year. There, I said it before anyone else had a chance. It’s one of those classic stories of having the best of intentions. Every so often I would think, gosh, I should tell everyone … Read More

2012 – Year In Review

Wow, I can’t believe we are days away from the end of 2012. What’s more, I can’t believe I’m not traveling somewhere! This will be my first New Years in the US since I rang in 2005 in Edinburgh. Those New Year trips were … Read More

Give the Gift of Art This Year

Oh my gosh, nearly three months without an update! Shame on me. I have let entirely too much grass grow under my feet of late, and there’s much irony in that statement… For those who haven’t heard, I managed to fall and break my … Read More
