Download the Poster Above here. Make it the computer screen wallpaper on your boss’s laptop. He’ll fire you, but he’ll also thank you. Consider this Web page an invitation to an audiovisual feast.

All the Weirdness of His Wilderness

Kansas City artist Danny J. Gibson (www.djgdesign.com) has created a plethora of original pieces for my book.  He spent 10 hours on art this past weekend alone, which is really no special feat for Danny.  I suspect he would not sleep at all if he did not have to, just so he could create art...
