Charlie Pratt's Prints

I've told this story before I'm sure, but Lord knows where. Many years ago, the photographer John Gossage helped organize a show of photographs by Charles Pratt at the Corcoran Gallery. Charlie, who had died of a heart attack at his gym four years earlier at the age of 50, had been the scion of a wealthy industrialist family. It turned out that John had other connections with the Pratt family, which included helping Charlie's widow Julie publish several books of Charlie's photography. Julie was ...

Spring, Sunshine and a Good Book *bliss*

The sun is shining, birds chirping (I almost forgot what that sounded like) and I’m impatiently watching the snow melt off my deck and wondering how long it will be until I actually see grass in my backyard. My backyard is my absolute favorite place to be in the spring and summer months and I can’t wait to get out there again. The perfect morning for me consists of a spot in the sun on my deck, a warm cup of coffee beside me, and a good book in my hands. I. CAN’T. WAIT. It’s like my friends at S...

The Daily Promo – Cody O’Loughlin

Cody O’Loughlin Who printed it? I used Smartpress to print this set. They’re great to work with during the proofing and mock up process, and offer plenty of quality paper options. Who designed it? I designed the promo myself with the help of my wife, Nicole, who has an excellent eye for design. I wanted to do a tri-fold in square format because it sequences a bit like a book. I also thought it was neat to have the portrait of Braxton in a diptych as well as a tryptic when the promo...

Everyone has an opinion on the gay apps. They’ve become so ubiquitous and ingrained in our popular culture, they’re impossible to resist. I remember the first time I downloaded Grindr—shortly after it was released. Once The New York Times writers discovered it, the app world seemed to explode with location-based dating apps. Gay dating wasn’t easy for a long time. I was lucky enough to grow up & come out during the iPhone generation when thousands of new types of apps seemed to be released every...

Zoe Church: Hollywood's Latest Religious Obsession

This comment about his church and the rest of the conversation about his faith got Ellen Page's attention."Oh. K. Um. But his church is infamously anti lgbtq so maybe address that too?"

Beyoncé Challenged You To Eat A Plant-Based Diet — But Is She A Vegan?

The answer is no: Beyoncé isn’t a vegan.And no, Jay-Z isn’t either.The New York Times put an end to recent speculation with information straight from Bey and Jay’s personal trainer, Marco Borges: “Beyoncé eats ‘a plant-based’ — i.e. vegan — ‘breakfast daily’ and consumes no meat on Mondays. Jay-Z eats ‘two plant-based meals a day.’”So perhaps the best way to characterize the superstars is as part-time vegans (or rather, excuse me, part-time “plant-based” dieters). And “part-time” is key here, a...
