Highly Edited by Nick Rauber


Life is about interaction with people, places, things, and experiences. We often float through our days trying to get to the next step, whether that is with work, relationships, or just the grocery list. Most of our lives are based upon our reaction to a few specific and significant events like our birthdays, wedding day, birth of a child, diagnosis of an illness, and death.

I’m obsessed with hand made crafts, not only they’re a great achievement for the artist, they’re also a beautiful display element that adds up to the living room or office.

October 14th, 2010

The Lifetime Achievement Award for Blues Excellence is presented by the Voodoo Blues Krewe New Orleans Blues Society and is given to a different musician each year. This year's recipient was Little Freddie King, and I was commissioned to design the award. It brings me great joy to receive commissions where I'm given full creative control by the client. I was told to look up Little Freddie King and research his music style and the history of how he became a legendary Blues musician. It didn't...
