more album art.... sweeeeeet

Alrighy, here are the latest efforts on the album art front. These are a little more in depth graphically than the last six I did. It was definitely more of what I wanted to achieve when I said I was going to do some more complex covers.

rain and cows

These were shots from a couple of places I visited with a friend. It was a nice day to go shooting. Although I am still having a hard time finding my photographic eye and really feeling the photographs I am making, I know that they are slowly coming back. I feel like so much exciting stuff is going to start happening, I just have to be courageous enough to go for it! I can do all things in His Strength. :^)

No More Facebook - Video

These are my reasons and insights into why I took my face off of Facebook. After being cajoled into putting it up, it is finally here. Enjoy.

Album Cover Samples

Last week I was visiting with some friends and talking through what avenues that I can use my artistic expression, and they suggested possibly getting into album artwork. I decided to create some sample album covers. This is what I came up with. I sat down and did all six in one shot and have plans to make six more with some more in-depth graphics. I just don't have internet where I am, so it's hard to find the resources I need to do some of that. I have just been relying on the actions, photos, and brushes that I have on my computer to generate these designs. Look for more to come and please give me your honest opinion on what you think about these.

Unstuck Shutter




After having such a dry spell of creativity I needed to cure my mental drought. With the weather blowing in and the promise of rain and forcing myself to go outside and shoot, maybe the waters of creativity are not too far off in the forecast. These signs looked promising... I especially had some help from Rags the cat. Although cats never do what you want them to do when you ask, you just have to catch them off guard when they think you aren't looking.

Lost in the woods... not really


p.s. I hate the way blogger is formatting my photos. When you finally get something that works, why is it that they always have to go and change it? I hate to use cliches but as they say, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
