I don’t draw as much as I should. I’ve known that for a while now and it bugs the hell out of me. I used to draw a ton when I was a kid. Over the past few years I started teaching myself how to do hand-lettering. Which greatly improved my typography skills as a... Read more »
Making planets in Photoshop is one of the few things I can say I've figured out how to do fairly well, quickly, and easily. In this tutorial I will show you exactly the steps I take to make a planet using only a photo of some kind of texture as a starting point.
Time is a strange concept to me. It's probably one of the few things I always think about and wonder what the origins of it were. Time to me seems like one of the hardest and most difficult concepts to grasp from a very questionable and expanded point of view. But in the end I just snap out of it and look at my phone to see what time it is.
I'm just going to come out and say it up front; the project you all know and were excited and hopeful about is officially done. Dead. Finished. AetherAeon was the perfect project. The content I had access to was incredible. But at times it did prove to be overwhelming.
It's that time of the year again. No, not the holiday season. I'm talking about me updating this damn site. I really suck at keeping up with these things, let alone with the Kardashians.

Today's my birthday! Woo!! Cue the marching parade! Cue the festivities! Cue the gun-fire! (although that's a common occurrence given the area I live in) I'm now 23 years old and really, at this point I still don't feel old. That's mainly the fact that really, I'm not old at all. After being 22 for the past year, (which really wasn't my choice), it opened my eyes to the fact that there's so much going on around me.
Lately I've been trying to venture back into my roots in design. The style that got me hooked into learning about design was surreal space art. Since I've been into space and astronomy my whole life, it was only natural of me to be drawn to being able to create the stuff I would see illustrated in countless astronomy books I had as a kid.
