While briefly back in Arizona, I had the lovely privelege of helping Zack + Terri celebrate their little-one-on-the-way via a maternity shoot! It was quite a windy day, but the Arizona sunshine didn’t dissapoint – enjoy a sampler from the shoot!

 

In the midst of finalizing the production of ‘A Lovely Tale’ and prepping for my upcoming Yukon Quest adventure, I seem to have neglected to post an update with a few photos from a recent adventure in the oh-so-beautiful Swiss Alps – enjoy the following few photos, featuring a bit of skiing at the lovely Villars-Gryon!

Welcome to 2012, ya’ll!

In case you’ve missed out on following the progress of ‘A Lovely Tale’ on its Kickstarter page, I thought I’d post a quick update!

All the images and words have been carefully crafted and finalized, and the book is in the final stages of printing – hurrah! Check out the Kickstarter update link above if you want to read more about the process thus far. Up next: sharing it with the world!!

(If you weren’t able to back the Kickstarter campaign, but still want a copy, good news: I’ve ordered extras! Get in touch to let me know you’re interested!)

December is well upon us, which means Christmas is coming quite soon!

Since ’tis the season, I thought I’d jump on the last-minute gift bandwagon, and share a few of my favourite suggestions of gifts that will bring cheer to more than just the recipient! I love how these folks are using art and design for social change and to empower generations through creativity, so have a look and spread some arty cheer!

Raven & Lily
http://www.ravenandlily.com
 
I recommend: Moroccan Woodcarved Journal ($18) and Wood & Silver Leather Bangles (3 for $18)
These guys are doing a lovely thing, empowering women in Ethiopia and India through design. The women are taught design skills, and the proceeds go towards funding literacy programs for the artisans and their families. All the products sold are hand-made and eco-friendly, and affordable, too! (I bought myself one of these hand-carved wooden journals last month, it’s even prettier in person!)

Eat Art
http://www.eat-art.org

I recommend: Darth Vader – Never Beyond (12×18″ – $30)
“You get the art. The kids get to eat.” I think their slogan says it all. A lovely selection of art and photography to choose from, with each 5×7″ print feeding one child for one month (with bigger sizes feeding more children, hurrah)! (Plus: Darth Vader Art. ‘Nuff Said.)

Sevenly
http://www.sevenly.org

I recommend: Shirt! ($22)
There’s a featured charity each week with a new and beautifully designed shirt to match! Proceeds go to the charity, and you get to gift a lovely shirt. (Each design is only available for a week, so grab ’em while you can!)
