For those of you who are tired of living in cyberspace, then David’s new book Altered Ego: Self-Portraits is the antidote you’ve been craving. Nothing can replace the tactile experience of holding a real-life, three-dimensional book. It has heft – you can cradle it in your lap, flip through the pages, even sniff it. Best of all, the cover of Altered Ego is cool and velvety to the touch. Then of course there are the visual delights: 108 of David’s digitally painted self-portraits, carefully sequenced and beautifully reproduced.


The book is $30 + $5 shipping and handling in the U.S. If you would like to purchase a copy, please contact David at
