Creative Collective: Joshua Ezzell

November 3, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Josh and I came into contact through Leo, who many of you know through the extraordinary visual art that he has created for my world. Together the three of us created the latest trailer for the series, and all of that flair, movement and life came sole…

A Voice for the Voiceless

October 22, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Only in the past few years and with the rise of fascism have I begun to understand advocacy and why it’s important. Our world moves by influence. When you’re given a spotlight–however small or large–that comes with a responsibility to understand that…

Some Friendly Reminders

September 24, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Morning folks, hope you’re all having a nice weekend. I’m still recovering from a hangover from my partner’s 40th birthday, which we celebrated on Friday. I haven’t drank in almost 2 years, so I’ve no one to blame but myself (and perhaps our charming I…

Wordplay

September 17, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

When prepping, athletes stretch, chess masters play matches with themselves (or computer AI), and artists keep their skills current–like Leo, who’s always training himself on some new technique or brushwork between projects (and, at the risk of making…

An undertaking of mine this year has been to celebrate the milestone of completing the Feasts series with a very specific memento: a tattoo. I had Leo draft up an initial concept and brought it with me when visiting various tattoo parlors, putting down…

Creative Collective: Leo Black

August 6, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

It is my absolute pleasure to present today’s artist; a man who’s work many of you already know so well…The one, and only: Leo Black. It would be a slight against him to simply recycle images of Leo’s previous, Geadhain-themed, works for today’s post…

Postcards from the Edge

July 30, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Things are going to be brief today–I have a new crisis unfolding. I haven’t missed a Sunday Blog yet, and determination, even when things are grim, is a raft to which we can cling to stop ourselves from slipping into the abyss. First, the good stuff.…

And the Beat Goes on

July 23, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

I’ve been in a bit of a creative lull. I’ve been twiddling my thumbs without my manuscript since the middle of June. My publicity campaign has been getting ramped up over the last month, so there hasn’t been much on that front either. At least Jupiter-…

Gratitude

Too Much Love

May 7, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

I mean, there’s always things in life to feel crappy about, and most people–myself included–tend to focus on those elements above all else. Pleasure (happiness, in the non-Pavlovian sense) is a homeostatic state: we of the free and postmodern world e…

Creative Collective: Nya Designs

April 30, 2017, by Christian A. Brown

Behind every visionary is a strong, silent partner, right? Well, the same is true for artists and creatives, and their partners are many. Art, as we know it in this age, isn’t just about creating something and then setting it free into the world. With…
