Anthropocene

Collodion Wet-plate collodion photogram on stone, stand made of welded steel and rock - 3.5"x5" up to 8"x8" not including stand

Guns are Art

Black-And-Blue-Book

When people hear I am working with a 3D printer the first question they ask is “Have you printed a gun?” And I emphatically answer “NO!”  IMHO the 3D printed gun story is blown way out of proportion.  Sure, a person could print parts of a gun, but not the important parts like the firing …

I have been watching – and sometimes enjoying – how the publishing industry has changed.  Not only can we self-publish POD books, but we can promote them on the …
