This is a culmination of my too many interests. It's is an in-between place. It's more focused than my Myspace blog, but less so than my author blog. Here you can find artwork, photography, writing, poetry, book covers, manga and pointless videos. All of these things mesh together to become a reflection of their creator in an in-between place colored like shadows and flavored like frappuccinos and chocolate. It's one heck of a world.

Even More Book Covers


Thought I’d take a moment and share the book covers I’ve been doing lately.


Because I'm proud of it, though no one cares, here's the original photos this cover came from:


smoking a cigarette

Guess what i spent the other night doing? yeah, playing with smoke. we had to go buy a pack of cigarettes, in fact, and then I ended up using incense for the smoke, as per a great article on "How to Photograph Smoke" (worth checking out!)

Thanks to the advice there, I got a few good smoke images (though we used a 1M candle power spotlight to illuminate it instead of studio lights)

awesome smoke

neat smoke

more cool smoke

cool smoke

(I'm just to the point where to get a better image I need a better camera *sigh* )
