    Dr J photo used for the Converse wall

One of my most popular photographs of Julius Erving is a shot I took of him from the back with his hands on his hips. Aside from the many prints I’ve […]    Read More…>>

    Inexpensive 4×6 Business Cards

    4x6 hand out

    I’m a big fan of getting business cards printed three up on a 4×6 print from Sam’s Club. Sam’s charges 17 cents for a 4×6 print and 13 cents if you’re willing to pick them up the next day. To get that price, choose “ready in days” instead of “ready in hours” in the console […]    Read More…>>

For other artists it involves setting up the booth at home for the picture, and be willing […]    Read More…>>
