I was listening to Monster Magnet's "4-Way Diablo" when the idea for this piece came to me. Hope you like it.

Blue Circles

9x12 Colored Pencils on Black Paper

This piece was inspired by Joan Jett & The Blackhearts. One of my all-time favs. I just love Joan Jett's work. She rocks.

Yellow Purple and Green

9x12 Oil Pastels on Black Paper

Sometimes I can't figure out why certain images come to me when I listen to hard rock and metal. This one, for instance, was inspired by AC/DC's album "Back In Black." The thing is, the image itself seems too cute to have been inspired by that sort of music. Inspiration is hard to fathom sometimes.

Peach Streams

9x12 Sharpies on Bristol Board

The design was inspired by Manraze's album "Surreal". Manraze is Phil Collen (Def Leppard), Simon Laffy (formerly of Girl) and Paul Cook (Sex Pistols). They Rock.

Black Square

9x12 Sharpies on Bristol Board.

I thought up this particular image while listening to Bullet For My Valentine's Album "Scream Aim Fire" while on the exercise bike. I come up with a lot of interesting ideas on the exercise bike probably because I always have my Ipod going while I'm working out.

Golden Triangles

9x12 Copic Multiliners and Sharpies on Bristol Board

I was listening to DragonForce's "Inhuman Rampage" while working out on the exercise bike when the idea for this came to me. I wanted it to be stark and intimidating.

Yellow Green and Blue

9x12 Copic Multiliners and Sharpies on Bristol Board

This one came to me while I was sketching out another idea in my sketchbook. Of course I had my Ipod on and Judas Priest's song "United" came on and this was the idea that came to me.

Yellow Circles

9x12 Copic Multiliners and Sharpies.

I get most of my ideas while on the exercise bike rocking out to metal and hard rock. This came to me will exercising to Monster Magnet's album "4 Way Diablo". Music inspires my artistic vision, though it might not seem to go with the type of music I listen to.

Strange Stump

9 x 12 Copic Multiliners and Sharpies.

This is another abstract inspired by music. I was listening to Def Leppard's "Pyromania" when the idea of this came to me.

Spooky Trees

9 x 12 Copic Multiliner & Sharpies.

This image came to me while listening to the metal band DragonForce's new album "Ultra Beatdown." I get a lot of ideas for my work while rocking out to my music. For me, music is a visual experience.
