The great rock guitarist Dick Wagner is gone. I’ve been a fan since his time leading The Frost;
I was fortunate to see them many times at sock hops around Detroit.
I made this portrait of him not long ago and it was a real pleasure
to know it was one of his favorites; he used it as the cover
of his last album, “Captured”.
It takes a great spirit to make such great music – rest in peace, Dick Wagner.
Overwhelmed by her demons, an ant is the newest

“When I write, I have images, always, in my mind: of the characters, or a character, first.
Then the world, their world, accretes around them, and the story grows.
The book’s cover art comes much later in the process, when the writing is done.“
I’m knee-deep in fireflies every evening now,
working on my firefly book, which will be published in 2016.
I’m working with video as much as still imaging,
here’s a still from one of my videos.
A mating call heard in the secret compartment
between flashes, trembling wings
whisper the day’s end.
