I normally start my “work” day in my home office, enjoying a cup of coffee and listening to music while responding to email, browsing a few websites, and checking in on Facebook and Twitter. After that, it’s project time out in the studio where I play with toys and take photos.

Carmen conjures a song of swashbuckling revenge while drying out in Acapulco, 2005

Yesterday started out just like any other time, though my electronic mailbox seemed unusually filled. Surprising, having recently unsubscribed myself from a boatload of daily junk mail. As I scrolled through the list I saw lots of familiar names, and for a moment thought I was having one of those the-final-is-today-and-I-haven’t-been-to-class dreams. Though, in this case it was the post-employment work version of that dream: my-presentation-is-today-and-I-haven’t-prepared-any-slides-and-what-the-hell-is-the-subject-again?

I had this feeling because my mailbox was jam packed with messages from former coworkers, all smart and cultured people who had been listening to the local NPR affiliate on their drives into work and heard me talking about my photography when the radio news program turned an ear to the local San Diego arts scene. Pretty cool!

The radio segment was a companion piece to the feature that ran on the TV side of KPBS a couple of weeks back, though obviously without the visuals, and with some key changes from correspondent Beth Accomando to better fit the audio-only format. So, while you don’t get to see me pop the head off a kewpie doll, you do get to hear me wax poetic on toys, record, books and the ever-popular “how I come up with my ideas.” Oooo! Ahhh!

The piece runs about 5 minutes long, and I especially like the super fun music used in the background throughout the piece!

So, just in case you missed the piece when it aired, click on the little audio widget above and pretend you’re driving into work listening to smart, intelligent public radio. And don’t spill your coffee.

The February 2008 issue of Focus Fine Art Photography should be hitting the street in the next day or so with a nice little four page spread of my photographs (three of which are scattered just above this text). This is the special “Collector’s Edition” of Focus, featuring a tremendous collection of images and interviews with some of the greatest names to stand behind a camera — Ruth Bernhard, Arnold Newman, George Tice, and many others. The entire issue is online at the Focus website, or you can take a look at my pages from the Press page, but I strongly recommend finding the magazine on newsstands. Focus is printed with a lot of care on heavyweight glossy paper, and the images within look phenomenal!

Arlene measures the value of her soul while listening to the insidious sounds of Musica de los Muertos

There’s a nice little article about Vinyl Mysteries of the Caffeine Alphabet in the Arts & Culture section of this week’s La Jolla Light (September 6th edition), featuring three images from the show. I received my copy of the paper this morning as I was backing my car out of the driveway… you can find your copy for free at news stands around La Jolla and University City in San Diego. Or, if you’re reading this from some distant place across the globe, here’s a convenient link to catch up with all the cultural goodness on-line:

La Jolla Light article

As an added bonus, the on-line version reproduces each of the three photo at their full and complete aspect ratio, whereas the printed version of the paper had to make a few crops to fit everything on one printed page.  I love the irony of this particular crop…

Version printed in the paper

Full version (and reproduced in the on-line version of the paper)

That’s two weeks in a row that the La Jolla Light has printed information about the exhibit — last week as a “spotlight event” and this week with a small feature. Cool, huh, crops and all!

Final frame at the Cuius Deo Optimo Open made the cover of the April 11 issue of San Diego City Beat magazine!  It was pretty exciting to drive to a local coffee shop this morning and see one of my photos staring back from inside the vending machine.  I resisted the temptation to dump the entire stack into the trunk of my car, and took a conservative four copies.

Inside the free weekly mag is an article about the Art of Photography Show, that opens its six week run at the Lyceum Theater Gallery this Saturday night.  I was interviewed for the piece last week by Kinslee Morlan, who ended up using portions of our chat throughout the article, which nicely captures what I try to get across through my whimsical and slightly irreverent photos.

Get yours now before they’re (cough, cough) either selling on eBay or lining the bottom of your neighbor’s bird cage.
