The Gonzo Illustrator

“I still think the computer has so confused us that we don’t quite have the strong moral compass that we should, I always say to people that I like to see wet ink. A computer leaves me unable to do what I live for: to find something unexpected.”
-Ralph Steadman

I'm interested in seeing the documentay film.

Quote DuJour

At the root of creativity is an impulse to understand, to make sense of random and often unrelated details. For me, photography provides an intersection of time, space, light, and emotional stance. One needs to be still enough, observant enough, and aware enough to recognize the life of the materials, to be able to 'hear through the eyes.

Quote DuJour

“Well, I suppose nothing is meant to last forever. We have to make room for other people. It’s a wheel. You get on, you have to go to the end. And then somebody has the same opportunity to go to the end and so on.”
