Tiny Prints Origin Story

The image below is my oldest piece of art that I’ve kept continuously on display and is the inspiration for Tiny Prints.

I made it in high school (c. 1999) from scrap mat board and an image I cut out from one of my contact sheets (it’s a film thing). It has moved with me approximately 13 times. I always put it out on display.

I like it for a few reasons…

First of all, it was made on a whim. There were no overly-grand ideas involved.

I also like that it’s so small. It feels approachable. You want to pick it up and look at it more closely.

It’s sturdy. I don’t worry about handling it or moving it around because it’s not delicate.

Let’s Get Small

My wife, Courtney, had the idea that we should make prints like this one available. I’m always trying to print larger and larger images, so at first I was hesitant. After considering what made this such an enduring piece for us, I agreed that we should make a new version.

We began calling the project “Tiny Prints.”

The Spark

I sat down to look for a new photo I thought would play well in a small size. Scanning through some of my newer work, I saw this image and immediately heard a voice say, “Tiny Spark.”


Life gets difficult sometimes. We each need to kindle our own Tiny Spark to keep us motivated and moving forwards. To me, this is an outward symbol of that inner spark.

These are hand-assembled by our “team.” I hope that by handling each one, our tiny spark will imprint upon it and be passed along to you. And if you choose to give these to someone you think could use a tiny spark, that’s more good vibes out in the world.
