C.S. Lewis' sci-fi trilogy is truly immersive. As I was writing this music, it made me wonder what it would be like to experience a peaceful moment in a place like Malacandra. Enjoy!

Thank you to Dom Le Roy from Pexels for the footage.

I wanted to do something fun as an early Christmas present for my wife. She loved it and I got a kick out of making it.

Music: Me improvising the Bob's Burgers theme song on ukulele.

You'll see me fumble a bit here and there as I'm still getting used to Affinity Photo. However, although I'm not affiliated with that company, I highly recommend it as a Photoshop alternative. It's every bit as robust and user friendly. Plus. it's a one time cost and not a subscription.

Till We Have Faces is C.S. Lewis' best work of fiction, in my opinion. Reading that book really changed me. I wanted to create some artwork and music to show my love and respect for it.

Music: Written and recorded by me

I've had a lot of fun writing ambient music and experimenting with different sounds. This one has more guitar involved which makes it more active and uplifting. Perhaps a good way to enhance your mood and sense of focus. Hope you enjoy.

It's a strange time to be alive. Music is necessary for my own sanity and I hope this can bring you a little solace as well. More music is on the way.

These are uncertain times. Anxiety and fear have been getting to me and I'm certainly not alone. I wanted to do something therapeutic that I could share and potentially help others with. If nothing else, maybe it will help inspire a sense of wonder and imagination.

This is my first time doing a video like this so if you enjoy it, let me know. I'd like to make more!

Thanks to Andrew Dyer from Pexels for the footage.

I started with a rough thumbnail sketch and began experimenting with different photos before settling on a few images to use. This one was a bit more experimental for me but I'm pleased with how it turned out. Kick back and enjoy. THANK YOU for the support.

I created the design in Photoshop and brought it into After Effects to simply show the gradual process and add some interactivity.

Your eyes have not deceived you, that is truly a new (to me) mythical creature...the Turtlebear. Harmless, but legendary, he can only be found in this remote enchanted area of an unknown forest.

Enjoy a few minutes of relaxation and time away from this world. Thank you, truly.

Dusting off the Photoshop cobwebs with some photo manipulation work. For years, I've wanted to do a time lapse video like this and it feels really good to finally accomplish it. Thank you for your support!
