Brian, The Digital Gryphon:
In addition to working various full-time jobs since leaving school, I’ve been producing photographic images for over 40 years. My first assignment was for the high school yearbook. I offer my photography & design on apparel & gift items, and as frame-able prints. My on-line history goes back to CompuServe, Freenets and 2400 baud modems. In fact, Dad introduced me to ‘puters by letting me write code (in ‘basic‘) for the IBM-5150. Now I operate a number of web-sites and on-line shops.
I came out as gay to my family and the world (well, the readership of the Chatham Daily News) in 1978. I have self-identified as Queer for more than a decade. My designs here, as well as my blog posts, are sex-positive and pro-diversity; created from a progressive point of view.
The Digital Gryphon LLC is the business entity behind my various creative endeavours.
@ DigitalGryphon.com (this site) focuses on photography, graphic design and book publishing. My photography is available as frame-able prints and selected merchandise. Subjects range from florals and animals to city scenes. This site also shows my graphic and text designs; from snarky commentary on life to LGBTQ history and messages of pride.
@ GenderQueer.Life was launched in part as a response to the 2016 US Federal Election. It’s a platform for Gender Queer folk to inspire and be inspired by each other. Book reviews, sharing blog posts, videos and websites of interest are the starting point.
@ Rubber Chicken Ministries offers a range of rituals from various faith traditions to honour your ‘cycle of life’ events. I am licensed to solemnize marriages by the State of Ohio and may be available as an End of Life Doula. I offer card readings as a spiritual ritual with donation to RCM.org.
