Art of 2013

Here is an incomplete look at the art that I created over the past year, which includes fine art, illustrations, and photography. It is incomplete because it is impossible to fit all the sketching that I do into one short presentation. In the coming year I hope to take my creativity up a notch (whatever that means) and really produce high quality work.
This video was created with Windows Movie Maker and the audio is a snippet of a larger musical composition that I've been kicking around for a while. Maybe I'll get a bunch of my music recorded in the coming year too. My recording gear is Audacity for the multitracks and a cheap microphone from Target. Oh, and the music is played with an AX series Ibanez electric guitar plugged into a Peavey Special Chorus 212 amplifier, no effects. Now if I could only get a drummer and a bass player to agree to play my wildly unorthodox music! 

Here's the video on Youtube if you care to view it in that format. I think is a better quality of video.

Excellent video! Loved seeing all of your artwork in one place. Amazing that you created the music too!

Thanks, Raena. Glad you enjoyed seeing last year's art. I would also love to be a professional musician, but unfortunately one can only do so many things and do them well.
