First time in a while creating some photomanips. Thought I'd try out something different for me and start getting some techniques back and redevelop after some time away.

All photos by me, no stocks!

It's been a loooong time doing this type of art and so I am looking to shake the rust off. Just haven't had time and been doing more gig posters lately. Will be posting more art from time to time.

Get Back To Work!

I know I have been absent for most of the past few years. Been dealing with major blows in personal life which has sort of sapped the energy and creative juices out of me. Between illnesses (I am still dealing with), losing my mom and brother in law and dealt with another blow late last year which lead me to really put more focus on taking care of my family. I just could never seem to get back into that creative mode for long stretches at a time anymore.  I have been fortunate though to be able to do a few side jobs in gig posters or logos. The poster thing is a radical departure for me and I am still figuring out what my style and workflow for those will be. It is a fun thing to do, that's for sure. But I miss creating the imagery I like to create. I just haven't had the time.

But I am getting there. I have been following some of our more respected artists that I watch grow into fantastic artists and are all well on their way to great things! I am very proud of them and they have inspired me lately. I have got the itch again. I have been dabbling, though nothing solid to show. Just practice runs. I have some new ideas to get out there soon. I do have a new CD project that is both a commercial endeavour and personal project as it may be the thing to get me going again. ;)

My new work may be going back to my older style and I look forward to the challenges I lay down for myself. Holidays are approaching so new stuff will most likely be in January unless I hunker down and get something done before then. :)

See you all soon! :)
