In Giveaways by David

A mock-up of the Twilight I, Tahoe, prints to be released within the next month. Trolling through my own archives I see that two years ago today as Within The Frame was just about to come out I gave away the cover photograph from Within The Frame on beautiful 16×20 APC gallery wrap canvas. So I’d like to do something …

DEEPER

In Books, Craft & Vision, e-books, News & Stuff, Thoughts & Theory by David29 Comments

At the end of the month, Craft & Vision is releasing the first eBook I’ve written in over 6 months and I’m really excited about it. When I wrote the last one I said it would be the last eBook I wrote about vision for some time, and that the next books would be about expression of that vision. The …

In Life Is Short, News & Stuff, Pep Talks, The Italian Incident by David13 Comments

Over the last week I’ve done podcast interviews with two great guys. The first was with Matt Brandon, a great friend and collaborator. The second was with a new friend, Martin Bailey.

June 01, Coming home and crawling. On June 01, the good folks at The Ottawa Hospital kicked my ass to the curb, threw confetti in the air and told me to come back some time when I couldn’t stay quite so long.

Voices, Part Two

In Creativity and Inspiration, Pep Talks, Rants and Sermons by David34 Comments

A cable vanishes into the clouds in a marble quarry high above Carrara, Italy, the place Michelangelo sourced his marble for David. Much of my own artistic journey feels like this, more of what I’m looking for is obscured than revealed at first glance. I spend a lot of time waiting for the mist to clear. When it comes to …

My collection of screws and plates. Click the image for a closer look. This is just a quick update. I’m nearing 2 weeks post-up, and am nearing 4 weeks since the accident. The days are getting better, my mind is less foggy now that my pain meds have been significantly reduced, and each day contains small victories. I’m slowing down, …

No Such Thing As Better

In Rants and Sermons, Vision Is Better by David196 Comments

It’s been a while since I’ve had a good, proper, rant. Part of that has been the adventure of this year; i think it’s softened me and given me more patience, made me a little more graceful. Another part of it, probably closer to the heart of the matter is that I’ve been busy doing other things and a good …
