Toph Nouveau - My submission to the Gallery Nucleus Avatar Show.

I’ve been dropping bits and pieces of it for weeks but I needed all the time I could get to finish it.  Here’s hoping all the gallery spots didn’t fill up while I waited.  I was hoping to wait to share it until I knew whether it would be in the show but I just can’t wait anymore.

The plan is to go through the whole Gaang but for the show I just had to pick one character so I picked my personal favorite. 

Happy 10th Anniversary ATLA!


You know, this is precisely why I never answer to summons, invitations, or suggestions from the other members of we happy few, Gotham’s elite.  One wayward phrase, a simple challenge and suddenly the very notion of stepping on toes is grounds for nightmares that the staff at Arkham would have a heyday with.  Scarecrow, the perennial spoil sport…not that Doctor Crane was ever an eligible participant in this little round; not after a long history of dreadful performances on even the simplest brain teasers.  No, no, no…so quick to anger, o’mighty Phobos!  For shame, for shame.

(Dipping my toes back into the water after a lengthy pseudo hiatus spurred on by a variety of life circumstances that have since been taken care of or are on the mend.  These photos are actually from the beginning of last month.  I’ll be steadily getting back to each of you who have so generously left messages over time.  As such I’d like to extend my thanks to each and every one of you lovely folk!)


Earth Day with David Byrne: David Byrne‘s Tight Spot, presented under the High Line in 2011, is an inflatable audio installation of low frequency pulses, tremors, and rumbles which emanate from the 40-foot globe. Byrne has commented on the phenomenon of “humans squishing their planet,” noting that Earth is no longer a “planet of clouds, deep blue oceans, beige deserts and swaths of green jungle.” Read more about Byrne’s installation here

Also, every time I see photos of Snoqualmie Falls it still blows my mind how beautifully powerful that thing is. I can’t get enough. Photo by Benj Haisch

These beautiful advertisements for ‘Portraits Of An Icon’ at National Portrait Gallery have been spotted in tube stations around London.

The top photo was taken by me at Piccadilly Circus. The bottom shot was taken by Terence Pepper at Charing Cross.

Audrey Hepburn: Portraits Of An Icon is showing at National Portrait Gallery until 18th October. Don’t miss it!
