Images Used on VAC Album

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 30, 2014, 6:30 AM
Woot! This spring I licensed some of my work to VAC (Velvet Acid Christ) for their new compact disc and album, "Subconscious Landscapes" which was released a few days ago on October 25. They had offered posters, t-shirts, signed merchandise and etc (no longer available) with my art as part of their pledge music drive leading up to the release. VAC's genre of music is Industrial Trip-hop Trance, EBM, Techno, Goth and Darkwave. You can order the CD, Album or MP3's here… . The VAC website is here and their facebook page is here…

It was a good experience working with Bryan Erickson of VAC and Joe Schulthise of Metroplis Records I had to use the 'big render' feature in MB3D on "Industrial Contamination" as it is an inherently noisy image, though not obviously so if viewed at reduced resolution. I believe I rendered it about 1.1 gigapixels (34,560 X 34,560 to smooth it out and then used tripple anti-alias for the finish image.

Below are a few images of the finished artwork, one of them including upcoming show dates in the US. :) And also the 4 original images that I licensed for the project...

The arms on that thing really looked like hydraulic arms like on a backhoe...

Sometimes, with scifi or fantasy images, it's difficult to realize the artists point of reference as far as up and down or horizontal, vertical, etc... So to be clear, I see this as a horizontal view, looking basically straight ahead into a tunnel. :) Some kind of service tunnel or containment tube for a fantastical power generation device. Like pulse antimatter or even super rail gun...

Made with Mandelbulb 3D.

I always liked this Gypsy looking fractal, one of the first fractals I made... By the way, I thought it looked like a gypsy because it looked like he had two big ear rings hanging from his ears...

I'm finding it VERY much my pleasure to read your novels!  I started "Shortcut to farside" kind of late and not knowing how long it was intended just to start it.... After a few pages it didn't matter.  I was laughing so much!  I will comment on Amazon. 

Excellent artistry all around!

That's very good to hear! :) And reviews at Amazon are a great help. That's what drives book sales, and it's very difficult to get reviews. Really appreciate it!
