Silence

August 4, 2006

Sorry for the silence. I’m working on a new song that I may upload for your listening pleasure. I’m also managing a billion other things right now including 3 (maybe four) new websites and a couple business opportunities. So my art projects are being pushed to the side at the moment.

Just a Leaf

July 16, 2006

A friend of mine just reminded me to put this online!

Click this link to listen to “Just A Leaf“, my first public single. This music is, of course, my intellectual property… so don’t rip it off and air it on radio stations around the world in your name without first getting my permission :).

Comments welcome.

Photoshopping

June 20, 2006

Ok. I decided to try and expand my horizons today by building an entire scene out of pieces of photos with out leaning too much on any one. There are roughly 10-15 pics that make up the different pieces of this scene and they were brought together with blur effects, photo filter, meticulous touch-ups, and a good eye :). At any rate, I don’t think it came out that bad! So that proves you don’t have to draw to be an artist!

Comments welcome.

I'm Just a Leaf

June 19, 2006

This phrase, which is quickly becoming my virtual identity, was given to me through a song. By the Lord’s grace I wrote an entire song about a leaf! It’s a song that reminds us of our helplessness and God’s infinite love towards us who are nothing more than a leaf in the wind. How God loved us though we are just a speck on the face of the earth.

I will try to get the most recent version of the song up soon… I will be working on it more though, so consider it WIP. The coolest part for me was that I discovered the following scriptures AFTER the song was written! Here is some scripture for your consideration:

Proverbs 11:28-29


28 Whoever trusts in his riches will fall,
       but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf.

 29 He who brings trouble on his family will inherit only wind,
       and the fool will be servant to the wise.

Isaiah 64

6 All of us have become like one who is unclean,
       and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags;
       we all shrivel up like a leaf,
       and like the wind our sins sweep us away.

Psalm 8

3 When I consider your heavens,
       the work of your fingers,
       the moon and the stars,
       which you have set in place,

 4 what is man that you are mindful of him,
       the son of man that you care for him?

West Ninja

Just thought I’d mention my little doodle. My first time with a Wacom pad and on Flash 8. I may feature this character, or one similar, in a flash comic series one day…

The Future

June 18, 2006

Soon, perhaps tomorrow if I have time, I will explain what “Just a Leaf” is exactly. For now, I wanted to mention that it is the title of my last recorded song and will also be the title of my upcoming CD.

I will also be posting a link soon to the song itself for evaluation and look forward to feedback! I’m evaluating the best way to do this right now as I don’t really want it being downloaded to anyone’s computer yet since it is unmastered and unfinished.

The CD will also feature 16 other songs which I am in the process of recording right now.
