Why so Serious?

photo As a child growing up I wanted to be a special effects designer, painter, and photographer and as an adult looking back that just boils down to being an artist. Throughout the early part of my career, I've stayed close to art as a typographer, prepress four-color film producer, and color specialist. These roles and some of the tools like a typositor don't exist as today but the guidance I got from all of those illustrators, pressman and type experts has given me an insight that I use in all aspects of work I do today. 

The best thing is seeing your children taking interest in all those things you put down, but with a fearless enthusiasm, you remember from your own childhood. My son and I had a huge debate about this picture and using off camera flash. It was a new technique for him and that's where i get to be the dad and say don't worry we'll work thought it together. Since he has a huge thing for Batman, which started at about age 4 or 5, we had a good laugh because the mask made him look way more serious than he actually was for this shoot.
