Flare and Fade

Rebecca Vipond Brink is a Chicago-based writer, editor, photographer, illustrator, and all-around creative.

My life mission is to find empathy in the world, and to increase the number of empathetic experiences we have. Art, writing, design, gaming, and tech are all areas in which I am particularly interested in finding those experiences. 

The title of this web site, "Flare and Fade," refers to a commitment to live fully, to flare before fading. I encourage myself and others to do what they love, to do it well, and to pursue it doggedly.

Above you'll find samples from my portfolio of work in a variety of different areas. Please feel free to browse, and to contact me at rebecca@flareandfade.com.
