The last few days, as we’ve opened SEVEN for pre-orders, have been tremendously exciting, humbling, and full of the same fear any artist has when releasing something so close to his heart into the world: what if it doesn’t find an audience? We released it nervously, knowing if no one purchased it, I’d have 4,000lbs of books in my loft for years to come. We released it knowing shipping was expensive – too expensive – but the very best rates we could get after dickering with Fed Ex and UPS and DHL and finally going with Canada Post. And we released it hoping to the gods in control of these things that this book would find a few hearts under which to light a fire. All I can say, after all that, is that your reception of this project has left me so grateful – a posture you put me in so often. Thank you so much.
I made the images above, lit by the fire of that gratitude, with my iPhone as the last rays of the evening hit the orchids on the coffee table 30 minutes ago. Happy Easter, friends.
If you missed it, you can reserve your copy of SEVEN, my limited edition fine art book, now, and save $15 until April 02.
