Today I’m releasing an EP comprised of a few hymns and original modern worship tunes recorded recently by myself and Luke DeJaynes of the Fundamental Elements.  The record is serving as a fund-raiser to help offset the expenses for adopting a baby boy this spring!  Please help us spread the word, and of course, we’d love for you to go grab some new music and support “the cause.”

Get it here!

Project Update: Liars, Thieves & Fools

Guitar player and songwriter Joey Avalos, from the Tulsa-based pop/rock band Stars Go Dim recently contacted me with a request to design a digital album cover for a side project he’s working on called “Liars, Thieves & Fools.”  He described the music as a very chill, moody singer-songwriter sound, a la Ryan Adams, Wilco, and David Gray, and said they want to have a very simple, retro LP look.  Excuse me?  Umm, yeah.  I think I would like a shot at that.  I’d never claim to be the Albert Pujols of graphic design, but I know my strengths, and asking me if I’d take a crack at this project is like tossing #5 a fat batting practice pitch right into his wheelhouse and asking him if he’d like to swing.  I was salivating.  To boot, he sent me a couple of really vibey, grainy black and white photos that just sent my mind running with ideas, and withing 24 hours that meaty pitch was sailing over the left-center field fence.  Pardon the baseball analogy, but I’m pretty darn happy with the turnout:

Be on the lookout for the release of this EP, and keep checking back here to see what kind of projects I’m getting to take on…

 



It’s been a while

OK blog world, I’m back. I’ve been terrible at blogging. The good news is, it’s because I’ve been working on a ton of design and music projects, not just watching TV. So don’t call me lazy!

It’s been a busy few months, finishing up and releasing the record with Fundamental Elements, and touring to promote it. If you ain’t got it yet… well, shame on you. Click the album cover below (designed by yours truly) and do it. You can thank me after we have your $5. That’s right, it’s only $5. So go get it. Now.

I’ve had my hands full with lots of design projects as well.  Some fun, some very, umm… corporate, some somewhere in between.  I’ve also been working on a lot of original music for my church, and as I get some of that recorded I’ll let you know how you can get your hands on that as well.

I’ll do my best to get on here more and keep you posted on recent projects, both with music and art.  Thanks for sticking in there with me!
