  Colour outside the lines and make the best art of your life! To my core I believe that our lives can be lived boldly, intentionally, and as our truest work of art. I believe we are all capable of living extraordinary lives; that people like Gandhi, Picasso, or Mother Teresa, were ordinary people who chose to be fully themselves …

Within The Frame Giveway: Signed Print Folio

In Books, Within The Frame by David

As part of Within The Frame month, which we’re celebrating over here in wild style (My book, Within The Frame, came out 5 years ago. There has been wine, and there’s a good chance there will be again,) I wanted to do a couple giveaways. In part I’m hoping to bring new interest to a book I still believe is …

Making Within The Frame

In Books, Travel, Within The Frame by David14 Comments

The original cover concept I sent the publisher. I’m glad they over-ruled me. Six years ago, I got a phone call from a publisher asking me to write a book.

In Books, Vision Is Better, Within The Frame by David17 Comments

Never underestimate the power of one decision, one conversation, one risk taken, to completely change the course of your life. 5 years ago this month Within The Frame, my first book, rolled off the presses and into the hands of what would be way more people than I ever imagined.

Studying Masters

In Books, Images, Influences, The Craft by David46 Comments

In my Created Image video, one of the things I strongly advocate is studying the masters. I think finding those masters, the ones with whom you truly resonate, and finding them yourself, is part of the fun.

Building SEVEN: It’s Printed!

In Books, Craft & Vision, News & Stuff, SEVEN by David8 Comments

SEVEN, my fine-art book, is almost ready for the binders. I spent Friday and Saturday at Hemlock Printers watching sheet after sheet come off the press, a massive 10-unit Heidelberg Speedmaster. Each form is a sheet of paper with 6 pages per side, 12 sides in all. The pressman would put the plates on the machines, and run test after …
