New Illustrations + A New Lettering Project I Started

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 »

How to Make a Planet in Photoshop

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.

Goodbye 2013. Welcome 2014.

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.

The Rise and Fall of AetherAeon

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.

Searching For The Sunset

Despite what I was talking about yesterday about not having motivation to do anything, I am still running off of a great high from spending time at BlizzCon 2013 2 weeks ago (speaking of which, I still need to go through and edit photos from that day).

I Like To Waste Time In My Spare Time

It's mid-November. Leaves have started falling and the weather is changing. Daylight Saving Time is (finally) over and I'm stuck with, for the first time in a long time, no ideas and no motivation to get any work done.

Just Some Updates, Nothing More

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. (Kanye in, Lamar out) But now I'm in that certain mindset that lets me get back to these project that matter most to me. And some of those have been going fairly well up until now.

Terragen 2, DeviantArt, & Me

I'm really excited right now. I feel like I've been reunited with an old friend who has changed quite a bit but is still the same cool buddy I used to spend time with so many years ago. I'm talking about a program here, not a real person. But not just any program. I'm talking about Terragen!

Twenty Three Years & Counting

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.

Societies Under The Infamous Concepts Of Divinity

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.
