You left once before.

My broken bits were left scattered.

Then I saw your true face

—and I was shattered

no more.

While creating this, I listened to this:

Sleepy Sundays: Spring Start

Spring Start
Spring Start


We’ve made it to the first day of spring! Although it’s a bit gray around these parts and they’re talking snow in my area, I cannot help but think of boardwalk days from springs and summers long passed.

This design was inspired by a day where my family went out down to a fairly local amusement park on the first day of spring. I can almost hear the laughter and smell the fried onions.

This song was blasting when we sat down to eat/chat:

I still smile when I hear it.

Is there a song that reminds you of a specific day or time?

Have a rhythmic Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Wild Card

Wild Card Wild Card

(Click image to view larger)

Ever since card games came about there has been the infamous “Joker” or “Jester”, as it was called originally. In some games, the Joker is referred to as the “wild card” for various reasons. A wild card in games is usually defined as a card in which the purpose is determined by the people playing. A wild card in life is usually explained as a person who has unseen motives or perhaps no motive at all, yet they provide a great strength or great loss (depends on the wild card!) to a group or people. Many alternate definitions exist for this term. Feel free to have a field day looking them up.

This piece was a bit of a freestyle for me. I had some trouble this week coming up with a theme that I was going to settle on. All that I knew was I wanted this one to be different. With that said, I encourage everyone to step outside of their comfort zone every once in a while. You may be shocked and amazed at the results.

The above Sleepy Sundays featured artwork was partly inspired by my good friend, DJMatticus over at The Matticus Kingdom. He is one of my fellow STMND team members and ever since we were thrust into that group, a lovely friendship has blossomed between all of us. If you don’t know him already, I highly recommend heading on over to his kingdom and clicking that +Follow button. He is a brilliant writer and a kind-hearted, lovable person.

What is your wild card? How do you define this term? Perhaps you are a wild card too. Please share your stories. You know I love a good coffee chat!

Have a wild Sunday!
