  • Listening to: "The Last Question" by Issac Asimov
So, i have taken a bit of a break from doing so much artwork this year, and in it's stead have been working avidly on creating music.  First, I have finished off an album containing a number of my most personal songs(Spill Like Wine), and secondly, I have finished the first installment of my space opera project called Platform. 

I am currently working on follow-up albums, writing new real-life inspired songs, as well as mixing tracks from the space opera's second installment.  The second is almost complete, and I am thrilled to be able to make more artwork to go along with the platform story.  In my gallery, I currently have a folder of many illustrations and concept art from this series, and have more illustrations to come, in a storybook sort of format to go along with the music. 

Here is a quick link to those artworks.

Here is my updated bandcamp page with my two latest releases.

A small look inside one of the many Jaavagi colonies within the Zodiac Ring of twelve floating rock colonies around Earth.
This is where the majority of the people in this civilization live. 
The inside is basically a large spiral, and is tiered, denoting inhabitants' usefulness within the colony. 
The free Jaavagi citizens on the surface, enjoy an artificial atmosphere, starlight, sunlight, and a life of leisure and higher optional education.
Though the people nestled within this environment are treated as slaves of the colony, who must constantly be working on and building their own dwellings into the rocks, if they wish to have a place of dwelling. 
Also, spread throughout the colonies are bits of a radically mutated plant, which branch out within the colony and act to hold the rock together, for a much sturdier (and not to forget to mention; Living) structure. 
Down the hollow middle of the entire colony, runs a similar breed of mutated plant.
Though, this plant has a very strange way of interacting with starlight, while being relatively fiber-optic, these creatures are able to filter and slow light down so much, that it can nearly freeze the particles in place and convert them to glowing steam, as the plant 'breathes.'
This is the under-dwellers only source of light, within their colonies.
Botanical Gardens of Castor
Aboard the Gemini colony lives two symbiotic families of Jaavagi tribes-people.  The house of Castor, and the house of Pollux.  The character shown here, is a character known as Phia.  She was an underdweller, who gained Jaavagi citizenship and access to the surface by the house of Castor, to whom she is a servant/maid type worker.  Anyway, one day, Phia's physiology begins to change as she is exposed for the first time, to the sunlight, while living on the surface.  Something inside her is making changes to her genetics (Turning her hair green. Making vines pop out of her skin.  Tuning bits of her skin to bark.)  Thus, to hide these mutations from the strangers around her, she runs away from the Castor capital tower, where she was employed... Then she finds this... The vast towers of cultivated Earth plants, which the Gemini Colony is coveting from the rest of the Zodiac Ring. 
Leo Station. The landing stones.
A visual representation of the surface of one of the colonies floating around Earth in the zodiac ring.  This one in particular is the surface of the 'Leo' colony.  It is one of the better-off colonies around, in that the high Oracle does allow a certain sect of citizens to pilot vehicles and orchestrate transport of citizens and diplomats across space, from colony to colony, within jurisdiction of the Zodiac Ring.  If you are curious about the sky, it is only the lightness it is, due to an artificial atmosphere and containment field around the whole top of the colony.  Within this containment field, there are also smaller masses of land, that are set afloat and rooted to the colony.  The higher the rock, the higher the rank of the people inhabiting it.  This is the way the Jaavagi people live, while refugees from Earth(non-tribespeople) and criminals are forced to live underneath the luscious surface. 
Platform 1…
The Final album cover for part one of my musical project, I'm calling the 'Platform' series.
if you follow the link, above, you will be led to the bandcamp page where my album resides and can give it a free listen.
Also, feel free to flip through my "Platform concepts and illustrations" for pictures I've drawn that pertain to the story, that my concept album is about.
