My old pal Steve.

My longtime friend and lunch-buddy Steve Bloch, photographer and one of Portland's best-kept secrets, sent a link to some personal photos he took at the Last Thursday event on Alberta Street. You can see them here.

This led to a discussion about how important it is, as creative people, to pursue meaningful personal work and how that feeds us not only as artists but also contributes to the overall quality of the work we do for our clients. I'm sure the same can be said for travel and reading and cooking, but it's often too easy to give up our "art" in lives that are crowded with daily obligations to family and work.
