  • Six Steps to Safer Image Sharing

    Despite the unfor­tu­nate real­i­ty that image shar­ing on the Internet can lead to mis­ap­pro­pri­a­tion of your work, there are some steps that can min­i­mize the risks.

    To most visu­al artists, the Internet rep­re­sents the prover­bial double-edged sword. On the one hand, the ease with which dig­i­tal images are cre­at­ed, shared, and dis­trib­uted offers photographers—professionals and ama­teurs alike—with more oppor­tu­ni­ty than ever before to expose the world to their work; on the oth­er hand, that work is now more eas­i­ly stolen or oth­er­wise mis­ap­pro­pri­at­ed, and artists can very quick­ly lose con­trol.

  • How to Raise a Creative Child. Step One: Back Off

  • Pariah Burke on the Biggest Challenge Facing Designers, Inspiration to be a Designer, More

    Rather than a title, I sum up my pro­fes­sion­al role in my tagline: Inspiring, Informing, and Empowering Creative Professionals.™

    That’s what I do, day in, day out: I work as hard as I can to inspire, inform, and empow­er cre­ative pro­fes­sion­als so that they can do their cho­sen pro­fes­sions and projects with a min­i­mum of frus­tra­tion and as few obsta­cles as pos­si­ble and with a max­i­mum of pro­duc­tiv­i­ty, cre­ativ­i­ty, and enjoy­ment. I do that through writ­ing books and arti­cles, pro­duc­ing videos and live broad­casts, appear­ing on stage at con­fer­ences and events, giv­ing work­shops and webi­na­rs, pro­vid­ing web­sites and newslet­ters, and offer­ing fully-customized, learner- and workflow-specific train­ing class­es and con­sul­ta­tion.”

  • What every dic­ta­tor knows: young men are nat­ur­al fanat­ics
