I took that photo. What you are seeing is a basic straight razor you can buy on Amazon, a typical latex glove, and black ink. The ink didn’t cover like I wanted it too, but some heavy processing in Lightroom took care of that.
Around the World
This is one is a generic fingerprint illustration that I edited after the fact and added some more details. I had a hard time thinking of something more fitting to represent this book. The finger print played such a large role; I had to go with it.
This one is just fun. What you are looking at is actual binary code. It spells out a sentence. You can google a binary to English translator and enter that code to learn what it says. It is something that plays into the story.
I knew what I wanted for this cover, but it fell flat. This cover does not do the story justice. Anyone who’s read this book knows exactly what this is a picture of.
I took this photo during an evening cruise around the Isle of the Shoals. This is a photo of White Island. I toned mapped this photo from three base photos.
I took this photo in my back yard during a thunderstorm. Very little editing went into this photo. A fun fact here – this photo is actually upside down.
This is a real photo from NASA that I edited. This is Saturn with its moon Titan in the foreground.
This is not a real photo. It’s an artist’s rendering of a super nova. If you’ve read the book you know what this is the cover.
This is another artist’s rendering. This is a DNA strand. If you’ve read the book you know how important that turns out to be in this book.
CMDTA’s Pictoral Guide to Disney World
This is a photo I took in 2008 during the holiday season. There is almost no editing here. It’s really hard to edit a jpeg from a simple point and shoot camera. If you try, a lot of noise will show up.
Misadventures in the White Mountains
I took this photo around the mid-2000s. This is a photo of the upper section of the Boot Spur trail on Mt. Washington.
