Story Behind the Picture: Red Fiat

Even though the studio is closed for vacation this week, I still wanted to leave you all with something to enjoy. This particular something is a little red fiat that I discovered in Rome last September. It was a rainy day, which made the idea of a three-hour-lunch at...

Story Behind the Picture: Pull of the Moon

One of the most fun (and challenging) things I do as a visual story-teller is to properly translate the pictures in my mind into something concrete. I’m forever jotting down ideas on napkins, sketching images in the margins of whatever magazine or catalogue might be...
