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 & design work are available as frame-able prints. Photography subjects range from florals and animals to city scenes. Graphic designs are generally commentary on life; from current sex & gender politics to deeply-repressed memories of childhood abuse. Fun stuff.
@ FreshFruitBooks.com is an imprint of The Digital Gryphon with book(s) related to the musical career of ground-breaking gay folk duo Romanovsky & Phillips.
@ GryphonCardReadings.net– supporting creative artists with Tarot and other Oracle Card readings from a very queer point of view.
@ 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. This site is funded by sales of graphic and text designs honouring gender diversity, LGBTQ history and messages of pride.
@ RubberChickenMinistries.org 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. This site is sipported by sales of Joy, Kindness, Love text designs.
@ Smart(ass)phone Delivery Apps offer filthy lucre (income) to supplement the above projects, while maintaining the Digital aspect of the business name.

IMPORTANT UPDATE ON AUTHORIZED PRODUCTION PARTNERS
As of July 11, 2018, Skreened is no longer authorized to use, display, or distribute any of my designs. It appears they have been acquired by another company. They deleted my account- and those of many other designers- without explanation or notice. It is not known if our intellectual property has been deleted, and there are reports of many designers with unpaid balances.
CafePress was my first Print-On-Demand partner. They were once a leader, but are not able to adequately support designers so I am closing all my CP shops- except for JKL Designs. I hope they will emerge from the pile of ashes they are creating now. The process of building out my shops at TeeSpring and GearBubble continues. At the same time I am updating pages and posts here (and on my blog) to reflect the current authorized partners and which designs and products are available.
