12 Stages of Life: Stories of the Human Experience Expressed in Artwork and Words

 
9780615607887: 12 Stages of Life: Stories of the Human Experience Expressed in Artwork and Words

The artist has selected 12 major stages of life he believes are experienced collectively as a whole by North American Society, even though, as explained in the book, we each create our own individual stages. Each stage is depicted in a highly detailed pencil drawing, along with thoughtful commentary and subtle threads that connect the stories contained in the drawings throughout the series. In an attempt to address the popularity of scrapbooking, the book includes three blank pages with each Stage of Life for you to add photos, mementos or jot down your own personal thoughts. This allows you to not only make each stage relate to you or a loved one on a personal level, but also creates a family heirloom to pass along to future generations with a thought provoking, inspirational message. Makes the perfect gift for many occasions. Other books by Bruce Carnahan: The HARVEST of PLANET EARTH

About the Author:

Bruce Carnahan is a self-taught artist with no formal training. In fact, he doesn't consider himself an artist. “Storyteller would be far more accurate”, he says. “There are some really good artists out there, and I would not put myself in their category. I would consider myself more of an illustrator, but a storyteller first.” Over the years, he has held a vast diversity of jobs: Dishwasher, Gas Station Attendant, Door-to-Door Bible Salesman, 18 Wheel Flatbed Cross-Country Truck Driver, Camp Counselor, Waiter, Custodian, College Recruiter, Minister, Bus Driver, Bell Boy, Pool Plasterer, Storyteller, PBX Operator, Medical Records Duplicator. The longest and most profitable careers he had, though, were Professional Actor, Advertising Creative Director and Copy Writer, and Salesperson. He drew on all these experiences and more to create 12 Stages of LifeTM. However, it is the living of Life itself that he says prepared him to create 12 Stages of LifeTM . “It wasn't until I nearly died with a chronic disease that I could fully appreciate the true values of Life,” he reflects. “Life has been made richer for me by experiencing both the highs and the lows. Contemplating 12 Stages of LifeTM was a vast spiritual experience for me. In many ways, it is a celebration of my own life with all its successes and disappointments. “ In addition to art prints and books, Bruce has also developed a totally new way for people to experience the message of 12 Stages of LifeTM. He drew on his experience as an actor, minister and salesman to create a 30-45 minute inspirational, motivational speech that reveals how the concept came into being and how it can be applied personally. Perfect for Class Reunions, Banquets, Graduation Ceremonies, Clubs, and Conventions. He uses PowerPointTM to project the artwork from the various stages as he details the hidden messages throughout the series as well as the thematic threads and connections throughout. He is available to speak personally to your group or association. Details can be found on his facebook page, www.facebook.com/12stagesoflife.
