spray-paint craters

i pose a question: have you ever stared into the flames of a campfire for an hour and suddenly are struck with the thought that your inner world is often much more real than the physical outer world? i provide an answer: i had a dream that a tidal wave washed away the boardwalk and… Continue reading spray-paint craters

a shadow tilts its head at me // collaboration

taking a piece of inspiration and seeing what it prompts different people to create is something that will never cease to fascinate me. and one of the most versatile and powerful pieces of inspiration is music. music inspires art - whether it be a poem, a painting, a drawing or even more music. and art… Continue reading a shadow tilts its head at me // collaboration

perhaps i found the lost piece of every dreamer’s soul

10/13/19 the moon the moon the moon - she's gorgeous, gorgeous tonight. she caught my eye as i was driving home; sitting in the backseat with my knees pushed up against the chair in front of me; and she held them in her spell the rest of the way home. she was hidden at first… Continue reading perhaps i found the lost piece of every dreamer’s soul

on sky and star

I'm sitting outside on the deck of the third floor of our hotel. It's completely dark outside ... except for the scintilla of lights winking across the 7x21 mile landscape. "lost without you" is playing in my ears and I feel the wind brushing over my shoulders as the piano climbs into my mind and… Continue reading on sky and star

tribute to blurryface |-/

My hands are black from the pencil pigment and I thought of Tyler's, just as black, during the rebel era that was blurryface. this was definitely the hardest album cover drawing I've done ... copying the tiny patterns from the original cover was so tedious that it took a full night of drawing to finish.… Continue reading tribute to blurryface |-/

trench album art here is my very first #cliqueart in the amazing TØP fandom ... I started it in class one day on the back of the quiz and it steadily grew throughout the semester until it filled the page. the feedback I got from my banditos was so positive and encouraging that I've decided… Continue reading tribute to trench ||-//
