Inspiration Is A Late Night

Posted December 18th, 2008 at 12:08 PM by prometheus
It seems like I am always coming up with ideas either right before the moment or too late. Take the holidays for example. Most company's have their Christmas stuff done either late Summer or early Fall. So that means that it was created months before that, during late Winter to the Summer time. Me? I get creative when Santa is already coming down the chimney. Part of it is getting into the mood. How do you get into the mood for Christmas during Spring? I guess as I get into the swing of it, I'll...

Sometimes you win, sometimes you don't

Lately I've been spending time on MySpace trying to build up "friends" and such, relating to my Death Is Gain extreme metal artwork. I've been getting some good comments and such. I finally got contacted by some one in the biz who wanted to use a previously created artwork for a shirt design. Since most of the work was already done, it went pretty easily. I really liked the way it turned out. But unfortunately the cost of the artwork, low run amount, and the exchange rate between the states...

Dreamers dream

Posted October 13th, 2008 at 08:29 AM by prometheus
Whew! Lately I have been having some interesting dreams, and lots of them. One thing that sucks, is I had one dream, where I was half awake and half asleep, and I had a great title for a blog entry, and some good text to go along. And now ... I CAN'T REMEMBER IT! In reality it probably was not that good. Have you ever had a dream where something was so great in the dream, and then you wake up, start working on it, and when the fairy dust wears off, you're like, this is complete CRAP! What is up...
