My Book 
8th-Dec-2009 01:41 pm

Before I began packing back in GA to move to AZ, I decided I was going to need a new project to keep me occupied in the interim, something that would keep me focused and creative. I've amassed a large collection of images and ephemera over the years and always thought I might one day turn them into a scrapbook or sorts but that's not exactly something I could make copies of and share with others. Being on the other side of the country now and still feeling a bit shell shocked has been weird at best but this new project I've been working on for the past 2-3 months has really helped me to transition into my new life out here without feeling too deep a sense of loss about home and everyone there.

I've been trying to keep this under wraps to be a surprise, but I fail miserably at that in part because I hate surprises and also I like the idea of something to look forward to more anyway. So here it is - I'm putting out a new art book. It's part love letter to friends and family (it's got a LOT of pictures in it), part blog posts (I've been doing this for a decade now, there were a lot of things that I felt should be shared), part coffee table art book (with some of the stuff I've done and posted here), and all full of my memories and big booming love.

If I'm lucky and can really hammer the rest of the pages out, I might be finished in another year. It will be less than 100 pages and sell for under US $50.00, and yes, you will be able to buy it online. I'm self publishing, so I'm not working under anyone's deadline. The title is "Back Door Boy In A Front Door World".

I like that last picture. Maybe you're supposed to be crying, in accordance with the wording, but it looks like you're laughing or in the middle of a tantrum, and it just cracked me up. :-)
