Acceptance: Shadow at the Edge of Day and Night By Andrew Souza

I was approached by the author Andrew Souza if I could illustrate some of the interior image for his book.  Here is the overview for his new book Acceptance:

While serving, Andrew witnessed many interesting places and things, some of which had to be written down. This particular mystery-thriller takes place in Brommer County, Missouri. Where two lawless riders were responsible for all the mayhem and carnage dealt to the nearby communities; their foul actions were done solely out of spite and greed, but unbeknownst to them, their deeds would eventually catch up with them.
Many years later, four young adults headed to a concert they believed would be the best one yet. On their way to the show, they noticed some things weren’t quite right. The young group initially thought they were lost, but soon found that was not the case at all. Not much later, it was revealed to them the reason behind their misfortune. While signs to turn back were being boldly displayed, their egos were too big to notice.

Now for a glimpse of my contributions to the book:

The book is now available in Hardcover and Softcover from AuthorHouse here.

Magnetic Man - "I Need Air" feat. Angela Hunte (Dirty Secretz Bootleg) Demon Pack Animation

Completely moved and inspired by Magnetic Man I proceeded to look for mixes of their song 'I Need Air' on YouTube. I soon found a stunning bootleg by The Dirty Secretz.  After only a few listens images flooded my head and this is probably the closest I've ever come to truly animating the visuals from my cranium.  Please enjoy the animation and selected stills below:

Thank you for watching and keep dreaming.
