Minor vs. Major Arcana

More adventures in macro photography.

Large bird versus small bird. Predator vs. Prey? If anything, it's an excellent opportunity to play with composition and lighting.

As you may have noticed, I like dead things. I spend a good amount of my free time searching for dead things to photograph. Since keeping rotting animals around the house starts smelling pretty bad and is less-than-sanitary, photographs are the next best thing.

Baby Birds II: Revenge of the Geese

Meet the Canadian Goose.

It's a fun bird. There's nothing I don't like about this bird, in fact. It's beautiful. It's graceful. It's a loving parent. It also hisses and tries to eat my face if I get too close to its babies. So awesome.

I spend a lot of time at the river near my house. Its shores are currently teeming with goslings and ducklings. I have always wanted to pick up one of these little fuzzballs but I've heard too many stories about the parents rejecting their young after they've been groped by human hands. And there's the proximity issue: I like my face. It is not goose food.

New Website!

At long last, I've re-designed my website. It's only a basic re-design of the skin, but I think it suits my work better than my previous design, which was more suited to my older (1990s, early 2000s) style of art. Head on over to or to check it out! I've also put my latest illustrations up there, as well.
