Broken Clocks Album Art

Broken Clocks Album Art

Today I finished my first album cover. It was for isi’s new single, broken clocks (sza cover). I highly recommend you go listen to it; she shows a new, promising talent that very few artists her age hold. I consider her the new Tash Sultana, but hey—I’ll leave that to your judgement 😉 I had planned to do a collaboration with her for some time now, and was given full artistic reign on the project. It was a fantastic feeling,…

The Littlest Creature – A Blurb

The Littlest Creature – A Blurb

Recently I finished the blurb for The Littlest Creature and the Legend of the Moonchild (above). Due to the dimensions of the book now that I’ve formatted it (in Adobe InDesign, though that’s a whole other story, and one I’m intending to tell another time) I’ve had to crop the the original painting, and only a few days ago painted in the bellflower and ripples by hand. That painting was the first I did for The Littlest Creature (Project TLC),…

Crimson Feather; Final Touch-Ups

Crimson Feather; Final Touch-Ups

I believe I have finished the text for The Littlest Creature—at least the second draft. At the moment I am teaching myself Adobe InDesign CS6 (again, it’s been years since I last used it) so that I can format it for print and digital distribution, as well as make a nice home-bound copy which I can give to friends and family for a final read-over. I want them to have the full experience, so that any comments they might have…

A New Look

A New Look

  Tonight I thought that I needed a new look. My old profile picture had been in use for a while, and I just don’t relate to it anymore. I love the look of the celestial alignment and it’s clear to read small—unlike the above left—but it’s too dark. I really love colour, and it’s just… old. So, I grabbed a close shot of Mareatü, or the “Dreaming Sentinel” (a name which only later grew to become my own), fiddled…

So Many Manuscripts

So Many Manuscripts

Today I have some Big Decisions to make. Really I feel like Tasslehoff Burrfoot (from Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman’s Dragonlance anthology), in that I most certainly don’t wish to make them. I would rather work on these; my manuscripts (which I had planned on anyway), and put off the decision ’till another day. Oh, and write this article, of course—which I had also been planning 😉 I should be researching, I know, but it’s not what I’d intended to…

The Journey Awaits (Final)

The Journey Awaits (Final)

Today I finished this illustration. It is exceptionally beautiful, and I consider it to be one of my best. More importantly, however, I enjoyed every single moment of it (which is why it turned out so well, I believe; or is  it merely that my perceptions have changed?). It seems that my theory works. I really love this piece. It’s not technical, but the ideas are what count in it and even if others might not I really love the…

The Adventure Begins – WIP

The Adventure Begins – WIP

This is an illustration I’m working on, and it’s turning out amazing. Thanks to abandoning my Ni vision, the whole experience has been truly blissful. The best way I can describe it as is that Ni does become subconscious—the vision is still lurking somewhere in the background, and you really enjoy getting to the end results, but you take all kinds of de-tour like meanderings which later make even more sense in the greater whole. The vision is not pinned…

[INFJ] Surrendering to Extraverted Sensing – Peace in the Inferior Function

[INFJ] Surrendering to Extraverted Sensing – Peace in the Inferior Function

Today, and yesterday, I have been working on this painting. It is a new style for me, and very different, in that it is almost cartoon-like, painterly, in it’s etchings (but I really like it; it is natural). The piece is still not done, which is why I have not shared all of it. As it is, I am currently using my newly-fortified knowledge of Personality Type to change my approach to art, and try to find greater happiness while…

The Silver One – Plans for the Future?

The Silver One – Plans for the Future?

Today I had no intention of working on this. I began with plans to paint a dream, to clean my office, to edit my book – not to finally create the cover of a story I do not know if I will ever write. This is the one I’ve had my knickers tied in knots about for years. It is that which got me through the brutal ride of high-school, and into sane lands beyond. But it also carried me,…

A New Style

A New Style

Let it be known that I have been trying to find a new artistic style for a long time—my artistic style. It seems that since the age of 13 I’d lost the damn thing. I still feel very lost, amidst the annals of self-judgement and rational criticism. But, struggling, I’m finding my way. Listening to the sometimes senseless voice of oneself is, for me, a hard thing. I rue the day I ever learned consistency was important in art, and…
