31 Nightmares 2016: The 13th

Grip

Has someone ever grabbed you? Did it send a shock through your system? This early concept is inspired by a nightmare where some—thing did just that.

…and it didn’t let go until I woke up.


This has been Day 13 of

There are sights and sounds we still can appreciate when it seems like chaos surrounds us.  At times this place is in the mind. A memory can take you there if you let it. The present time may seem like harmful forces are seeping in, but I have hope for otherwise.

I have hope because I see it in people everyday still. Humanity can be just as gracious and kind as it is cruel.

Summer sentiments whisper to me through warm wind and paint pictures of days long gone. Sometimes they inspire these.

Is there a mantra you’ve had this summer?

Have a peaceful Sunday!

Depending on how you view the illustration above you may see sky or ocean; sea or air.

Which do you see?

There are no right or wrong answers. It is all simply a matter of perspective.

Have an insightful Sunday!

You left once before.

My broken bits were left scattered.

Then I saw your true face

—and I was shattered

no more.

The Erratic Sun: Cover Reveal

I am both pleased and honored to present to you today, the cover for an outstanding recently released book by two authors who have homes in the blogosphere.

This project has been my baby for some time, while being juggled with some other wonderful things that have already come to fruition. So when Matt approached me with some ideas, I couldn’t help but take this on. Sci-Fi is a genre that certainly gets imagination whirling. Together these two authors wrote a beautiful story, that managed to flow so nicely, to where you couldn’t even tell when the writer had changed.

I’m still ecstatic that they asked lil’ ol’ me to do the cover art for this book.

Without further delay, I present to you, the fresh cover of The Erratic Sun.
