These two designs were inspired by events both past and a strange nightmare I had one night years ago about the future.

The first about the past was a beautiful day that was considered rare in the times I grew up in that were somewhat similar to the things going on in present day in the country I call home. The afternoon etched itself into my memories due to a vivid sunset witnessed that mimicked a candy store. There were so many bright pinks and lilacs. Then out of nowhere it seemed to get ruined by a very dangerous electrical storm that no one seemed to see coming.

The second that was dreamt up into a sci-fi design was inspired by a terrifying, sweat-inducing dream had one night where tons of planets were just getting blasted to bits and raining down and outward everywhere.

My lesson in all this trying to concentrate while there are in fact catastrophic things going on in the world that involve spiritual, racial, generational, and just flat out good old fashioned good vs evil, was that we need to take care of one another more. & Fight these evils because like the storm, what appeared out of darkness soon became light. So many of you have been so very kind these past few weeks while we transition the site here.

With an actual storm brewing in the skies over my head as I type this, and the climate changing in my region & all over I hope our own certain future doesn’t look like the one in my nightmares. There’s just way too much more work to do.

Be kind to one another & take care of one another.

Have a peaceful Sunday.

Sleepy Sundays: Imprints

Mothers are very often the start or beginning of something in a family. There’s been some new additions to mine in the past few weeks. Common conversation has been how much both of these new little family members resemble other family members, one being my late mother.

I’ve been grateful for the little pieces given back somehow in this strange trip we call life. They inspired this work.


To the mothers out there:

Happy Mother’s Day!

This animation is the visual representation of a fascinating nightmare had long ago. The lights did not frighten me. I only refer to it as a nightmare due to the people in it that were chasing me. The lights showed up at the right time, allowing me to escape.

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.
