Illustration Friday: entangled

Many entanglements are affairs of the heart. It is a little hard to see but there is a man serenading a woman in this dimensional painting and he is wooing her with his song. "Mediterranean Night" is my submission for Illustration Friday's "entangled theme.

Illustration Friday: music

I have created many music-related images for record labels, bands, The San Diego Chamber Orchestra and I even painted a music house. This image is for the music blog I am a member of called "Kings of Maybe."When our fearless leader Asperezas asked me to make a new header for the 1 year Anniversary, I knew I had to make a crown of buildings. Our group is small but good and they have turned me on to some great music that I LOVE! My new fave is Just Say Yes by Snow Patrol posted by flor. I am lucky to be part of this wonderful tribe and hope for many more years of good music and inspiring videos. This is our new honorary member and crown model :)

Illustration Friday: blur

When I am not wearing my glasses life takes on a nice blur.
Believe it or not, when I was young I was in a little band called "Blind Burning". We wrote songs and recorded them in a recording studio that is for students at UCLA. We also had a little home recording studio and it was a lot of fun. We entered one of our songs for a contest in Musician Magazine, a popular mag that some of you might remember and we made it pretty far in the competition. But the band broke up and that was the end of my band career :( This is the cover art I made for the contest to go along with our song. My submission for Illustration Friday's "blur" theme. 1982 Valerie Walsh
