Lately I have been experimenting with pictures, sound, and video as storytelling tools.
Part of my process has resulted in completely new works; some of it has involved enriching stories already posted on this blog.
I will share new works with you in future posts.
For now, I invite you to revisit past posts with fresh eyes — and with the sound turned up, on a laptop/desktop, using a browser that supports Vimeo:
- Cynthia, Unlit has a feature image now;
- Byron’s fascination for the letter B comes to life has acquired a feature image and my first attempt at animation; and
- The Piano Shark Player‘s image has been updated, along with a little extra something that’s meant to autoplay as an accompaniment to your reading (you may have to press play and wait for Soundcloud to kick in before you start).
On a completely other note, the news of Anthony Bourdain’s passing has me feeling shock and an extraordinary sense of loss.
If you’ve not read the 1999 New Yorker essay that launched his celebrity, or even if you have, I urge you to take a look now: Don’t Eat Before Reading This
Anthony Bourdain was a fabulous, irreverent writer; a cultural ambassador. I’ll miss his keen observations and wit. I wonder if he knew how much of a difference he made in so many lives.
I wonder if anyone truly understands the difference they make.
