Why I have this Link: storypeople.com

Storypeople.com is an awesome site.


You can see the work and order sculptures, prints and books (all of which are also awesome). So what is Storypeople all about? A guy named Brian Andreas. He is the creative talent behind the whole gig. Life lessons can be found throughout his work. Once again, similar to Hugh Macleod it is all about brevity. All summarizing little snapshots into moments in life. He has kids (and not knowing him I could only imagine he is a great frickin’ father) and many of his vignettes are skewed toward kids but, hey, aren’t we all still kids at heart?


While he has been doing his thing for a number of years I didn’t discover his work until 2000 or so. An amazing young woman in my life at the time gave me a print (She kept asking if the stories were true. I kept asking her if it mattered. We finally gave up. She was looking for a place to stand & I wanted a place to fly.). And while his work kind of became our relationship “thing” (I gave her the Kindred Spirits sculpture which kind of put a beginning stamp on a great 6 months relationship ‘run’) his work has remained integral in my life even though the relationship dissolved.


I can almost guarantee if you spend enough time with his work you will find at least one idea that will resonate so strongly with you that you will share it (if not buy it).


Storypeople.com will remain as one of my most preferred links until Brian sends me a nice thought kindly suggesting the link be removed.
