most of the musicians i record are stoners. 95% of them refuse to smoke before recording to get the **** done right. 100% smoke up after wards.

if i cant get a mix right ill try it stoned... heck even drunk... it might help me here and there but that's its limits

im really addicted to gear tho. my girlfriend is so pissed i spent my pay on a gap-73, i tried to explain to her what it does and she said 'Really? so its just a volume knob????

The digital work seems a bit clinical by comparison.

What are the dimensions of those last two "analog" pieces you posted above? I ask because on purely aesthetic terms, the digital work becomes more enjoyable as it gets smaller (as in your avatar), while the analog works become more enjoyable as they become larger. A sort of visual arts parallel to the modern audio loudness wars perhaps?

Anyway, my hope is that they are quite physically large; it would make quite an impression seeing them in person.
I know what you mean about the digital lacking depth, and it is an interesting parallel to the audio world. There is a flatness to 'perfection' whereas the handmade is a record of the history of the time it took to create it. The largest work (Lotus) is about 2meters wide, by 1 meter high. The series as a whole ranges in size down to about 10 cm by 5cm. If I had the space I would like to make some monumental, like billboard size, but ATM it's not possible.
The digital work is a new approach, and I will be experimenting with ways to 'dirty it up' for sure, but the physical paintings will continue.
Thanks for your interest, it's very gratifying to get some responses to these as they are rarely seen publicly at this stage.

GS definitely needs more war stories about the baddest hoes users ever pulled. Really inspirational stuff... Maybe one day I can be that dude.

Happy to! Thank YOU for sharing your fine work.

In a past life, I was an aspiring graphic artist myself. I was taking university classes at a highly-renowned school while still in high school, with an eye toward attending that school upon graduation, but music recording ended up winning me over. I've barely touched a pencil, pen, or (my favorite) charcoal and pastels since then, but I'm always keen to discuss and review. In fact, if you finish more work and want some feedback, please don't hesitate to PM me!

Criticizing someone's lack of imagination right after saying "Make like an egg, and beat it". You didn't happen to take the IQ test that is used as an Ad on Facebook, did you?
