Views of the Same Tree

The same tree wears many different faces.

Fritti (fried seafood)
Fritti

Italian street food (fritti) – assorted fried ocean things, with lemon to squeeze. No need for utensils, you’ve got a giant toothpick!

OMNI Magazine

I am going to be selling my old OMNI magazines from the 70s and 80s, but before I do I had to photograph some of the pictures and articles for your viewing pleasure. OMNI magazine is what inspired my imagination when I was a kid. I remember articles on space exploration and planet terraforming, IQ tests, science fiction stories, wacky weird and colorful fantasy artwork, and advertisements for must-have space age gadgets (typically calculators and digital wristwatches which were cutting edge at the time). OMNI was quite possibly the coolest magazine ever printed…

Enjoy!

Bookbinding

The love of books drives one to make books. It is becoming a lost art.

I borrowed from the artistic stylings of Jacob to get these public service messages out. Please don’t underestimate the seriousness of these issues.
