I just got back from a quick work trip to Miami. Fortunately, I was staying a beach pebbles throw away from the shore and despite the fact that I was busy during the day with work obligations, I did manage to have my breakfast coffee on the beach and end my day on the beach. I snapped a few pics as all of the early morning joggers and bike riders were getting their day started and I even managed to do a quick lino sketch.
I think the last time I was in Miami was 20 years ago, so this was a treat for me. Monday evening I managed to go for a long walk on the beach and discovered that when I turned off the beach, I was in the heart of the area with all of the restored Deco hotels lining Ocean drive. Night time didn't really afford the best viewing opportunities to scope out the architectural details of these gems, but it was a pleasant and welcome surprise.

In other news, I've paired up with Literary Artist, Brandon Lacy Campos and the folks at Summerfolk Press for a book of poetry with accompanying images from my "A Face A Day" series. We're still in the intitial book forming stages and are looking for a 2010 release date, but thought I would share the great news as this will be my first published book work. Stay tuned for regular updates.
