Cool photos, cool contest, easy way to help
See this photo? Don't you love it? I do. It's a bit hard to see, but the lovely tattooed knuckles say BOOK WORM. Full disclosure: this is my agent Amy Tipton (woo hoo for me for having such a killer agent!). And the guy who took the photo--Ed Glazar--has the chance to win serious swag and some recognition for his work. Since I think it's important for artists to help other artists (no matter what medium they work in), here's my plea: go vote for Ed's portfolio in this contest. You vote by clicking the stars at the lower left, where it says "rate this portfolio." Also check out his page here. I am a sucker for good photography (when I wish for visual art talent, I wish for a photographic eye), so it's not hard for me to give him 5 stars.
Do your part for artists today! Especially those of us who work our day jobs and wish we could be full-time artists (which is about 95% of us, if not 99%). Not that I don't love you, Day Job, because I do. I really do. But you suck my brain out through your bendy straw (you zombie you), and I don't have anything left for the night job. Ed might have the same problem, so help him out.
