Decrepid Power Station HQ

This is a small thumbnail sketch I did in photoshop as I played around with the idea of an old power collection station way out in space. I read that Mercury has wild magnetic tornados that sweep across the planet, and I wondered if that could be the basis for something on a mercury-esque planet somewhere. I have a loose idea for a story that takes place here. I'm going to develop this particular piece in stages. I will post my progress as it comes together.

As I said earlier, I've been inspired by various tunes lately. The music creates loose images in my head, and some of my posts have emerged from the doodles I create from those moments. Currently on the plate is MSTRKRFT, The Dead Weather/The Kills, New Thom Yorke, Portishead, and Autolux.

The Neighbor

More from the same batch of ideas that formed the space station and the captain plus a little random mess-making in photoshop with new brushes. An otherworldly behemoth examines an energy collection compound in the middle of nowhere (somewhere...)

I've been listening to a lot of new music lately, and I was in the mood to revisit an old idea that a song reminded me of. This is based on a blurb I wrote once several years ago in one of my journals. The premise was that at some point in the future television would be so ingrained in human behavior that even after the airwaves go dead, the hypnotic glow of the tube provides comfort.

Here is the ArtOrder challenge final painting for the Owlbear Reimagined. I picture this imposing beast gliding (not flying) down on hapless prey as night falls.
