Today, it's finally OUT. The World According To Wonder, the 400 page, 50,000 word history of the last 21 years of World of Wonder Productions. I played a small role in the art direction of the book, as WOW's founder, Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato and I are old friends and they asked me to help out. As well, they included me in the some 250+ original portraits mostly shot by the fab duo of Idris + Tony, over the last 3 years.
I couldn't be happier for them that the book is being SO well-received ... but why wouldn't it be? There's a LOT of love for these two, from the hundreds of productions and people they've chronicled through the years, as well as from the general public that is now finding out about them through their well-known productions, like RuPaul's Drag Race, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, Party Monster, Becoming Chaz and on and on...
Available today on Amazon...

A canvas print of his paint-by-number YES painting, originally created for Stella McCartney, hangs in our office to bring positive vibes to our meetings and - hopefully - turn NO (we won't be in your show) into YES (we live for the opportunity!)
