It's time to post some year end clearance items. Items that are one-of-a-kinds, remnants, whatcha-callits, or just plain miscellaneous—but otherwise nice enough to keep in my morgue or inspiration files. I don't have much information for much of this stuff, but I'll annotate where I can. I'm posting 5 items this go round, but for the next few days, it'll just be individual posts here and there as I get time (it's deadline time around here again for the next couple weeks).

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
