Lindsey Stirling Stained Glass

Recently I created a poster for the amazing dub-step violinist, Lindsey Stirling, and a contest to promote her new tour in London.  Unfortunately I didn't win, but am fairly satisfied with the design I made.  Nevertheless I will continue creating what I enjoy, technical illustration and digital-stained-glass.
If you want a poster of this please contact me and I'd be happy to sell you a signed print of this art.

Pentatonix Fan Art (digital stained glass)

I recently worked on a new digital-stained-glass project for some fun.  I have been greatly inspired by the wonderful a Capella music group, Pentatonix (PTX).  I quickly put this together while listening to their music and put it in a framed light box.  I wish I could capture how cool it looks when the print glows just like an actual stained glass.  I shipped the art to Pentatonix and they have received it, so hopefully they appreciate it (Kevin, Avi, Mitch, Kirstie, and Scott, I'd love to hear what you thought when you got this).  I hope you like it and check out Pentatonix on iTunes and Youtube!

War of the Worlds project Art Blog

I am still working on the art for the Pilgrim project, but come 2014 I will be working back on my War of the Worlds project.  I might post here as well, but I have created a new art blog specifically for the project.  Until then, I will keep you posted on the progress for The Pilgrim art book.

The Pilgrim's Progress (part 3)- Apollyon

Here is the second panel I have worked on for a book based on Nate Currin's album, The Pilgrim, based on The Pilgrim Progress by John Bunyun.  This panel is for the song, "Apollyon, That Old Serpent The Devil."  It is officially the largest file I have ever created for a single piece of art at 9.2gb!
There are plenty of more for me to work on and possibly show.  Until then, check out Nate's album as it is now available!

 This month I had the opportunity of a lifetime to celebrate my 26th birthday
doing something I had really wanted to do: fly in some vintage planes from WWII.
On my birthday, the 24th of July, I got to fly in "Gunfighter," a P-51D Mustang!  It was the best plane I have ever flown in.  I also had a unique opportunity to present, Larry (the pilot), with my cutaway drawing of a Mustang.  Now my art is hanging in their museum!  It is one thing to research and draw a piece of important history, it is another thing to actually fly in it!
Later in the week I got to fly in a B-25 Mitchell Bomber.  This thing is LOUD!  I was able to sit up in the nose for the majority of the flight and it was awesome!  I feel privileged to have been given two good views in two amazing planes!
The rest of the vacation was pretty cool as well as I got my first flight lesson where I learned how to take off, recover from a stall, and land a plane.  I also got to launch some model rockets.  All in all, it was a pretty spectacular vacation.  Now back to working on some art...
