More than masks that hide the truth, these are meant to be interior faces of the subconscious that whisper, lear and assert themselves in ways known and unknown.
Cover art for my solo piano CD, 13 Masks. Pencil on paper, colored in Photoshop.
|A Bit Of Light
Base on the photo compilation "Six Views of a Breezeway," Alimar added a ghostly font and this became the back cover of my upcoming release, A Bit of Light.
See PHOTOS for more photography.
Photo of a woman walking the bayshoreline from Provincetown, Cape Cod, is the artwork used for my first solo piano CD, Morning Whispers.

|Finding Galatea: A Self-Portrait
I've always been intrigued by the myth of an artist creating something so beautiful it actually comes to life. What happens after that is another question...
Digital art, modeled in Bryce 4, finished in Photoshop.
The Power of 10
The eBook starts like this:
"Witherferd shifted his position slightly...and all hell broke loose.
"The entire room puckered, as if God had just swallowed a lemon rind. Is was what the Gates of Heaven looked? Hell? With what he figured was his last dying thought, he whispered into the swirling chaos, 'I hope my computer is okay.'
"He never should have started praying. Bargains with gods always seemed to end like this..."
The eBook starts like this:
"Brittle plastic splinters across the floor like radiation from a blackmarket electromag generator..."
This is a first person, peresnt tense political sci-fi thriller. I never actually did any illustrations for it, but I drew up the storyline and was the main author. It's based on a rock opera I half-finished. (Most of the music from th rock opera has found its way into Audiocracy's playlist).
If you want to read the first few chapters, see Dreamless - Chapter One. If you'd like to help finish either of these incomplete stories, work on them in any way, contact me. Both stories would make great reads, regardless of illustrations.

|The New Worlds of Xianu Override
Ambrosia Software had a great game called EVO, with an open source plugin concept, Override, that enabled subcontractors to build overlays onto the game engine. The ArtsForge team came up with a cool intergalactic concept, Xianu Override, including a wholoe new story. Here are some links to the artwork:
• Xinau Override Terrains: New Worlds
• Xinau Override Shipyard: Spaceships
• Xinau Override Stellars: Planets, etc

Fractals are curves or geometric figure, each part of which has the same statistical character as the whole. Because they appear similar at all levels of magnification, fractals are often considered to be infinitely complex (in informal terms). Natural objects that approximate fractals to a degree include clouds, mountain ranges, lightning bolts, coastlines, and snow flakes.
Fractals are useful in modeling structures (such as eroded coastlines or clouds) in which similar patterns recur at progressively smaller scales, and in describing partly random or chaotic phenomena such as crystal growth, fluid turbulence, and galaxy formation. Or software like Bryce 3D. I have collected some of the early fractals we worked on at ArtsForge:
• The Fractal Gallery
The first art collaboration we did at ArtsForge began by scanning the black and white image of the 16th Century woodcut, Discovering the Heavens. I then asked friends to come up with colorizations and other variations of the image. Some of the results were very cool. Many people used the changes of others to give further variations to the series.
By the way, if you want to add to the collection, feel free.
