In August of 2003, I joined Renderosity.com where my gallery is still available. While on Renderosity, I was approached by an author (who is now a well-known published author with her own movie based on her books in the works) and invited to consider creating book covers for an online publisher. This invitation opened a new door for me and, over 100 book covers later, I'm still amazed at how this all worked out.
Then, in August of 2007, at the age of 37, I had a mini-stroke (transient ischemic attack or TIA) brought on by a heart birth defect. The TIA impacted my right side (my handwriting has not been the same) and poked holes in my memory. For some reason, I lost my creative drive and stopped working on my own artwork. Thankfully, I was still able to work on book covers but my own artwork was just not giving me any more pleasure. Since then, graphicsmuse.com has been left mostly untouched and, I think it's time to properly retire it.
After much thought, I've decided to keep my domain name (it's been mine for a long time) and redirect it to this blog. I'm not much of a writer as I don't think I have much to say that would interest anyone but, I really want to keep my "spot" on the internet. I've been dabbling in iPad painting/creative apps and I'd like to, eventually, show them off here.
This, as everything else in my life, is a work in progress. Stay tuned.
