Andrew Osenga

Over the past, oh, long time, I've worked on the art and design for two albums by singer/songwriter Andrew Osenga. One is the re-release of his wonderful album Photographs (which gets better and better with each listen, on into infinity), and his new album The Morning (the cover pictured here). Good old Brannon did much in the way of being awesome throughout the whole project. Together we did a lot--not just the cover, but the interior spreads as well--from start to finish. Check out Andy Osenga's blog comments about the cover for his new album, The Morning. I for one am happy about the response.


Prodigal Son etching, stage 1

I did an etching of The Prodigal Son, and here is the first stage, just the lines. (The final piece has alot more tonal areas). I scanned this in a while ago and thought I'd put it up. As you'll notice, the border in the etching is alot more involved and intricate than the color digital version.

I used to be allergic to cats.

But now I have my very own:

Vader in kill mode.

Father and son. Awww.

chill OUT, Austin! yeesh...

Jared Chapman told me that Austin keeps bugging him about when I'm going to visit there. All I can say is that I have to finish this romance novel I've been working on before I can leave town for any significant amount of time. Yes, that's right. I'm working on a romance novel. Except it's illustrated. In fact, you could even call it a GRAPHIC NOVEL.

Jealous yet?

But Fabio's not on the cover. So don't worry, it's not really that graphic. And it's 124 pages long. But it feels more like 1,024. Aaaaaaaaaaand... so yeah, sorry, Austin. I won't be able to visit for quite some time. But as soon as things clear up, you'll be the first to hear about it.

New name, same great taste!!!

Dear People of the World,

After some consulting of my personal timf, I've decided to actually not wipe the dry-erase board clean. I'm just going to change Sequencing's URL address to... (drumroll)


Yeah. It's that simple.

So, if you try to go to sequencing.blogspot anytime in the near future, and you can't get there, just go to the large-fonted aforementioned address. Pass it on.

Thank you,
The Management


weep not, for the cool is coming


Because my blog is so ridiculously neglected (i.e., no one is even going to read this), and mostly because I don't like the name, I think I'm going to take it down and start over. Like a clean slate, a New Year's resolution, except in the middle of April, and more like a dry-erase board.

I'll post again soon, giving the new name, website, etc.
