Honestly, I make what I feel like. Graphic Design, video editing, VR sculpting, audio recordings, art, and more. I also do other stuff such as bird training and creative writing. Somewhat Random.

Inflation has you down? Invest in art: 


Deep Dream Generator used on several artworks by Alphones Mucha (1860-1939) using a Style based on my “Nest” (2014) artwork.  The rope design frame is also an addition I worked hard on.

All available on my redbubble store.

Stormfront, 2013. (Silkscreen.)
https://www.redbubble.com/shop/ap/102235572
The great thunderbird appeared with a flash illuminating the valley below. Illuminating an army previously unseen. The defenders of the fort would have all died had they been caught unaware, and where able to escape thanks to it’s fortuitous appearance that stormy night. Forever after, they gave thanks to it and took it as their symbol. This piece is part of my Heraldry for Darien’s Dark Day’s series. I hand aligned the screens in my final semester in college.

What my file prep looks like before upload
A few days ago, I finished 9 different versions of my celtic rope pattern frame, and now I have finished applying those frames to some sketch artworks that I did awhile ago. I used 4-5 frames per artwork in the hopes that having this kind of option diversity will help on my redbubble store. 
It took a while to both apply the frames to the images and to upload them, that is now done I have turned 9 artworks into 39 print on demand options. Well, at least that is my strategy. So far I have managed to use social media to get 78 unique views to the redbubble shop, but no sales as off yet.
With this, I am going to start making videos again after my 2 month hiatus from that and hopefully also use that to advertise. Covid bullshit in the film industry has left me with a lot of free time to do this. Sigh.

Frame Designs Galore

I decided a while ago that I want to make at least some money on the side with print on demand services. Primarily redbubble. I had had works posted on accounts for quite awhile with no sales or even traffic. So I came up with an idea to frame my works of art and photography, as most stickers, shirt designs, and such that actually sell on print of demand are just rectangles and squares... So I made the design in the top left and started going through my old photos and trying to make them work as designs. I was quite pleased with this, and made 28 designs with old photos. I have been posting 1 a day on social media as my strategy.

But the initial design did have problems. Primarily in size, it was only around 3500x3500 pixels and the next things I want to convert to merchandise this way are artworks larger than that. So rather than simply stretching it out and hoping for the best I remade it better, and instead of simply doing that... I made multiple versions at the same time. It was quite a process. I had to drastically improve my texturing know how in photoshop to do this. But now, I can have essentially 9 different products listed with just the frames changed. I'm trying to work smarter, not harder. But it felt a hell of a lot harder. It took a lot of my graphic design and artist skills to pull it off to a standard that made me happy, especially the new copper-like variants (which are actually a combination of copper texture attempts and a leather texture.)

Cash, baby. I've been editing videos and making art for awhile without any real substantial payouts. I'd love for that to change. Wishful thinking on my part, ha.
