Just a few random things I wanted to put out.
Did you see the cover reveal for my upcoming book of short stories, It’s Cold Outside? Take a look here if you haven’t.
Why am I bringing it up?
I had started with a drawing I had made in an art class that I thought was perfect, but I couldn’t get it to work, so I started over with a different image, a drawing I had made from a photo, one I have used many times on the blog. I really liked how it come out :) But then, the day before my cover reveal, I went back tot he original drawing of the first image and played with it. Darn, I actually liked what I came up with! After passing it by several people, we all decided that I need to stick with what I used. It fits better. Anyway, a few changes in format, here is the alternate version:
I do like this, but it didn’t fit as well. Real quick – this was originally a pencil drawing (you may have seen it since I have used the drawing many times). I colored it on the computer and tried to get a watercolor affect.
Anyway, I have been stuck in a rut in music, so I decided it would be a good time to post an ancient piece of music on YouTube. I did this several decades ago when I was into the Minimalists, like Phillip Glass and Steve Reich. I played it for my brother and he suggested the percussion at the beginning and end. He also gave it the title, Mohr’s Circle. This is used to calculate stresses of materials, which seemed to fit.
I have a few projects that are coming up. I am still editing the book of short stories and have a few ideas for other stories in mind that I might write out. I may illustrate a book for a family member (maybe…) I am working on some music. Etc., etc.
Oh, the photo at the top? Yeah, my passport photo… lol, I think I look like I belong on a Wild West “Wanted” poster!
Anyway, as I said, just a few odds and ends I wanted to post. Have a great weekend!
