Sometimes a project comes around that pictures alone can't carry the magnitude or level of effort and passion that has gone into it. My Physical Graffiti is such a project.

While in England, I found that perfect place to paint. Windsor Castle. Such a magnificent and beautiful castle with a... Continue Reading →
I showed the journey I took in making a new wood plaque of the cover. This time, I wanted to make it using an alternative cover by Storm Thorgerson.
