Pre-order an autographed copy of the 1000 Avatars Volume 2 for a discounted price!!!!

(Test cover… probably won’t use it.. but isn’t he cute?? hehe)

Yes it’s finally almost here!!!! Volume 2 of the 1000 Avatars book!!! I just reached my goal of 2000 Avatar portraits and am already working on the 2nd book… info is below…

“Think for a minute about what makes you fabulous and how you can celebrate it.”
– Laura Mercier

What started out as a set of 100 portraits to help illustrate the idea of online anonymity, has turned into a documentation of Second Life avatars at a challenging time of our virtual history.

The portraits record a moment in the lives of more than a thousand people who are, to me, fearless. These people have put themselves out there into the brave new world of virtual environments as explorers – explorers searching for anything and everything. They are amazing, creative, soulful people who I am so honored to have in my project.

I have collected these portraits into two printed books. Volume 1  of the first 1000 avatars photographed was released on May 31st of this year… and volume 2 of the 2nd 1000 Avatar photographs which will be released on December 1st.

While the whole project has been dedicated to my dear friend, the late Delinda Dryssen, I think she will be proud to know I am expanding this dedication to all the men and women battling cancer. Since the first book was published I have known many brave people who have lost their lives to this awful disease. I know many more strong amazing people who are out there fighting the fight!! This project is for you!!!

The 1000 Avatars book volume 2 is a 160 page softcover book, 8″ high by 10″ wide, printed on premium quality paper to show the portraits to their best advantage.

I have decided to change the format a little in this new book, I am not going to divulge too much, but I will tell you that this book will show the front of the avatars rather than their backs. Our avatars are a mask no matter which angle we see them. But while they are a mask, they show our creativity, imagination, bravery, skill, expression, energy and personality. While I was going through the avatar portraits to get them ready for the book, wait, even earlier than that. While I was shooting your avatars, I saw so much life in each avatar. From smiles to gestures to dancing to hair and hats, to the smallest details of steampunk, dragons, and goth, I felt I had to share this with everyone. The idea of the project hasn’t changed by any means. The avatar as a mask allows us to search inside ourselves. Through the idea of anonymity, through the use of an avatar we are allowed privacy whether seen from the front or the back. I hope you enjoy the book!!

Thank you very much!!!
