I’m super excited to announce that my book Sprinkles!: Recipes and Ideas for Rainbowlicious Desserts is available for pre-order on Amazon.com!

It’s a fun and kind of weirdly wonderful, whimsical book, and I believe it’s the first cookbook dedicated entirely to the appreciation and understanding of sprinkles.  I hope you all love it!

I am excited beyond belief! The cookbook app that I photographed has been released today!

About a year ago, Rovio Entertainment, inventors of the game Angry Birds, asked me to document the food culture of their famously egg hungry pigs. Their talented developers gathered over 200 of my resulting photographs in a fun and useful interactive cookbook app., which contains the pig’s egg recipes, and animated illustrations of the them in their native environment. It was a great honor to be able to spend so much time with the pigs to create the Bad Piggies Best Egg Recipes.
The pigs are fantastic cooks who love good food. They are also kind of messy and their life is in a constant state of flux and chaos. “What makes this cookbook special is that the photographs of the app are taken by the pigs, which means that your own dish always looks better than the ones in the book,” said Sanna Lukander, VP of Books.  “Quite a change from the average cookbooks on the market!”

You can download the app at the iTunes store for only .99 today! http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bad-piggies-best-egg-recipes/id558812781?mt=8&ign-mpt=uo%3D4

Update 10/16/12:

Bad Piggies Best Egg Recipes is now the #1 best selling cookbook app in the USA, China and numerous other countries!

I’ve spent quite a bit of time sitting in bars, in the company of both friends and strangers, eating, drinking, talking (sometimes bit too much), and taking photos. I’ve put that experience to use in my latest photos for the feature, “Raising the Bar”. Here’s the cover, table of contents and opening spread.
