Tonight, the sky lit up. My eyes, my soul, my being is quenched in observance of this awesome site. Words cannot describe the majesty and glory of His design.
I was honored to be a part of an important project, a white paper presented by IFPRI & Veolia. This joint partnership presents information that proves the world is on a path toward rapidly deteriorating water quality levels in many countries. It’s a big issue and something we all take for granted here in the west. Well, perhaps if you’re in California you’ve had a more direct impact lately.
Read more about the study here.
Read the white paper.
I provided the graphic design for this piece, as well as the photo on page 2. Here are other photos from that series, taken in Chicago.
12-15-2015 UPDATE: I was elated to hear that the main photo here, titled, Positive Reflection, was among 6 finalists in the loveplanet.photo contest by Veolia and Paris Match, chosen from 15,000 photos received! There were some amazing photos submitted, so I’m honored to be part of it.

Do you have $10,000 sitting around? If so, please buy me this table. I will admit that I geek out a bit about geological / topographical maps. The design will urge you to ponder geophysics as you set your coffee on it. It’s made of high grade wood from Forest Stewardship Council managed forests and other controlled sources and glass.
As a graphic artist and photographer, I have always embraced anything that magnifies my abilities to create. There is a short list of brands that have produced important tools that I use daily. Apple, Wacom and Nikon are just a few examples of those brands. Scribble promises a revolutionary sylus / pen that becomes any color it touches. There are now truly no limits to color in your designs. Though, I have my doubts that it can touch the sky. Jimi Hendrix’s Purple Haze now has new meaning.
