Legacy Series Fine Art Portraits
WHAT: For Clients, News   |   WHEN: October 4, 2009
One of my favorite pieces to create for my clients is the Legacy Series Fine Art Portrait.  Much more than a traditional print,it is truly a work of art.  Starting from a single image from your session or a personal image you already own (and have the rights to reproduce), I'll add digitally hand-painted colors, texture elements and words to craft an image that tells a personal story about you. All Legacy Series Portraits are printed on canvas or premium fine art water-color paper for an heirloom-quality finish.

Recently, my friend Rachel came to me wanting to surprise her husband Jordan with an awesome birthday/1st anniversary gift.  I talked with her about doing a Legacy Series Fine Art Portrait from one of the images her photographer took at their wedding, and it was exactly the kind of unique, timeless gift she had in mind.  We discussed a couple different images and ideas and a few weeks later, I was really excited to present to her this 40" canvas gallery wrap.  For this particular piece, Rachel and Jordan had written their own vows to each other, so those vows are interwoven as a texture element in the final product.  I also chose to remove several elements from the original image and crop it in tighter so the eye is quickly drawn to where it should be, on Rachel & Jordan.

Day 270 ~ Trend-Setting (You Saw It Here First)
WHAT: Dogs, Fun, Project 365 (2009)   |   WHEN: October 2, 2009

Took my socks off last night while I was watching some late night TV and fell asleep.  When I woke up, Mia had done a fashion makeover on the socks.  When this trend blows up and you see it on the GAP mannequins, remember... you saw it here first.



I'm currently taking pre-orders for holiday gifts.  Available with matching gloves and hand towels.

New Holiday Card Design
WHAT: For Clients, News   |   WHEN: October 2, 2009
Usually I don't start thinking about Christmas until about the 2nd week in December, but Kylie let me know the other day she's already got her gift list started.  What? It's October 3rd??  There's still 91 days before Christmas!  I knew what was coming next... "What do you want for Christmas?"  It's October 3rd.  I don't even know what I want for dinner tonight, let alone something that's over 2 and a half months away.

I seriously do admire Kylie's planning skills.  Lord knows if she had the same planning aptitude I do, it might be December 27th before we remembered it was Christmas.  

Thanks to my wife mentioning the holidays, I was reminded it's that time. Time to get the holiday card juices flowing to have some shiny new models ready for my clients this season.  I thought I'd post of one the newbies I've created.  FYI, the website URL in the lower corners of these images does not appear on printed cards.
