First things first: Semester #1 of college went well. Workload wasn't bad at all, but I'm not expecting things to stay that way. The highlight of my semester was probably working on a project for Architecture of Empire, in which I got to develop my own fictional, ancient empire. More on that soon.
Songwriting has been slow this past semester. I think much of it has to do with the fact that I'm a lot happier with myself now, so I feel less compelled to vent my frustrations through music. Nonetheless, I do intend to complete my third yearly album by the end of summer, and as always, I'm constantly adding to my list of cover songs.
Also, last August, I did manage to finish recording demos of my first two albums. I'm still not sure when I'll get the chance to record them for real. You can listen to the demos by following the links provided below.

As far as art is concerned, my output has been pretty strong and consistent lately. I'm feeling a lot more confident now with all media - pencil, colored pencil, digital. I hope to keep this up as we start the new year.
Spring semester is about to begin. Here we go!
