The music is just gorgeous. Jonathan, you're an excellent musician/composer. Jessica, Sara, Julia and David, you all play and sing very very very well! Everything works together so nicely. And, thanks for letting me design the album art--I had so much fun and I loved being a part of the production. =)
Keep it up!!!
To hear the four songs from Jonathan's new album, just head over to myspace.com/jonathanfant and listen away. You'll be amazed, I promise.

They don't look half so nice at this size and compression, but nevertheless here are four sets of artwork I have completed over the past month or so. All four original pieces are charcoal drawings, while their color counterparts are digitally altered scans. Enjoy!

Just a random drawing that I ended up liking. =)
Jessica, it's your rose!

Well I thought it was about time to post some more of my artwork on here. So here I'll feature a series of watercolors I did in March. Actually, I did all four of these in one day as gifts for some friends!
I don't really feel like writing much, so I guess they'll have to speak for themselves... enjoy. This first painting is Diamond Head viewed from Magic Island.

"Boyhood, like measles, is one of those complaints which a man should catch young and have done with, for when it comes in middle life it is apt to be serious."

...so I don't expect many people I know to come to this, especially since I'm only in two numbers =). But I thought you'd all like to see a little more about this since it's what is happening in my life right now.

Been reading from A History of Graphic Design by Philip B. Meggs. It starts out with a detailed history of the development of the alphabet and gives extensive explanations of the development of calligraphy throughout the Middle Ages. It is amazing to observe the beautiful writings and illustrations of the monastic Bibles. I can't imagine the patience it took to write these things.
Something I found interesting is the almost cynical attitude the book had toward the Christians who created these Bibles, people who placed such important emphasis on the Scriptures. Though the author clearly appreciates the beauty of the artwork, he tends to present the subject matter of the works as childish, illogical, outdated.
Of course this was sometimes true, especially regarding the undue superstitions many people held during this time perioud. But the high repect for God's word held during the Middle Ages is a quality our time really needs to pick up on. If we spent half as much time reading the Bible as these scribes did copying it, our lives would be so much better off.
Well so much for my random thoughts of the day.
