Overview

This is a collection of close to fifty image quotes and typographic posters illustrating passages that were either originally presented in, or have been newly inspired by, my book Gingers & Wry. The images gathered for this collection are funny, thoughtful, inspirational, and are perfect for sharing on social media. This book also includes a bonus chapter from Gingers & Wry.

The quotes presented here run from dry:
"If you're alone on the road less traveled, ask yourself', 'Why was I the only one to get an evacuation notice?'"

"One misplaced world can make all the difference in the word."

With topics ranging from current affairs to science fiction, there is sure to be something for everyone in this collection.

Meet the Author

Writer and watercolour artist Dwayne James lives in Peterborough, Ontario where he writes and paints as often as he can, that is when he's not spending time with his young daughter, toddler twin boys, and wife Sarah.Dwayne studied archaeology in University, and as a result learned how to write creatively. "The most important skill I learned in University," he says, "was the ability to pretentiously write about myself in the third person."With no formal art training, Dwayne has always preferred the self-guided, experimental approach. In fact, he taught himself how to illustrate archaeological artifacts while completing his Master's degree at Trent University. Said his thesis supervisor at the time: "There might not be much in the way of coherent theoretical content in Dwayne's thesis, but damn, it looks pretty!"After spending close to a decade as a technical communicator at IBM, Dwayne opted to look at their Jan 2009 decision to downsize him as an opportunity to become a stay-at-home Dad for his young twins, and pursue his painting and creative writing whenever they allow him to do so. It is a decision that continues to make him giggle with wild abandon to this very day.
