My new toy…

after i received my tax refund this year i decided to spoil my self and bought me a pen tablet for my computer.

here it is

and next to my laptop for a size reference the tablet is 10inx6in and i thought it was going to be small its good thing i didn’t get the bigger one i was looking at.

im hoping after i get use to using this thing my art will get better but its weird using this. also im trying to make my art less complex by not trying to get so much into detail. my problem it takes me so long to do art because i get so into the detail it take me forever to get it done most of the time i just stop in the middle of it and never finish and thanks to a storm couple years back that took out mom and dad storage shed most of my original drawings ive done have been destroyed so i decided its time to start over trying to learn to dumb down my art id alot harder to do and not being able to use the tablet to its full potential is a challenge too.

August Rush …

<img src=”


get this movie some how buy it, pirate it, rent it, whatever you must get it and watch it… then you need to to watch it again 5 times. if you have any appreciation to music you will like this film. not only is the movie good it has an outstanding musical sound track! why wasn’t this film in the Oscars?!!! it deserves at least two for the sound track alone. “August Rush” tells the story of a charismatic young Irish guitarist (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) and a sheltered young cellist (Keri Russell) who have a chance encounter one magical night above New York’s Washington Square, but are soon torn apart, leaving in their wake an infant, August Rush, orphaned by circumstance. Now performing on the streets of New York and cared for by a mysterious stranger (Robin Williams), August (Freddie Highmore) uses his remarkable musical talent to seek the parents from whom he was separated at birth.

You may already know…

Were you ever enchanted by a blanket of mist
Becoming a part of the ancient world
Just for a moment?

Have you ever envied the scarlet rose
Standing proud with diamonds of dew
Perfectly draped about her?

Were you witness to the duel in the realms of the heavens,
Where each contestant lashes out with brilliant sword
Causing the very earth to tremble beneath?

Have you felt so insignificant against the spectrum of light,
With a backdrop of dark thunderclouds,
While listening to the cracking thunder striking deep into the soul?

Have you smelt the burning pine,
Seen flames exposing rubies in the wine,
Perfect in their ancient, silent dance?

Has tranquility reached your deepest being,
When crimson rays reflect
Off water, into your soul?

Have you tasted the lips of the one you love,
Experienced the quiver –
The desire to forever be one, and never apart?

Then, dear friend, you know the meaning of life.

its been awhile since i wrote a poem let me know what you think or even your experiences reading it.
