I'm a writer who combines literature with graphic design. You will see the majority of my deviations with cover art. To manipulate and also create, I use Photoshop CS5. I know my method of showcasing my artwork is a touchy one. A lot of people on DA just save something from google and attache it to their work without any permission or consideration of the owner. A lot of viewers assume that I do the same, but I don't, and I hate being put in the same category with those types of deviants. I am merely using everything in my arsenal to upload worthy material for users to read and admire.

I have been graphic designing since 2006, and I have been writing since December 2007. I self-published my own 40 page poetry book in the summer or 2009. It is titled "Living My Life, Behind Hollowed Eyes", and it was surprisingly successful. All copies got taken within two hours. I didn't sell them, I just announced that I had a book printed out, and whoever wants one can have it for free. In my eyes if the books didn't get taken, then it would have been a failure.

Present day- I am working on multiple book projects to do with poetry. My second project got started in 2010, which is titled "Broken Wings Unbound: I'm Falling Down / I'm Soaring Now" has undergone numerous changes to match my ever-evolving style of writing.
My third project which got started in late 2011 is titled- "The Other Side Of The Sky" and it's more concentrated on positive aspects of life, whereas my other projects are mainly dark.
My fourth project that got started in early 2012 is titled "The Prodigy's Suicide" it's a more raw type of poetry. Dealing with a touchy subject and the elements within it. I started the fourth one when I first started going into therapy, so therapy is what this project was birthed from.
My fifth project, which is mainly new, is because of ceasing therapy, it got started in October of 2012. It is titled "Skin of Stone" it is what I like to call my improv style of writing. Writing a piece within one writing session, beginning to end, in one shot.

With the closures of some of my books just looming around the corner, I have started two new book. 2013~

"Trials Of The Mind" deals with heartbreak and soulache. It also deals with thoughts of pure love and passion. This book is dedicated to a special someone who shall remain nameless.

"Divide The Divine" will be more out-of-my-style kind of writing. Lets just say this book will be something even I'm unfamiliar with and unsure about. More information to come on this matter.

Interests
I'm usually on the dot when pin-pointing a problem, or an emotion I'm going through. The answer is always just one, and never two. There always has to be a choice, rather than multiple answers.

I know where I went wrong. I know where my guard was let down. The question I keep asking myself is- was it all preventable? Or was I just waiting for something like that to happen? Is waiting for the right thing to happen, worth it all? Is this considered the right thing? Is the double-edge sword worth the sacrifice and compromise?

I lost my composure as soon as I got off contract with school and work. I felt the burn out that I was anticipating subconsciously. I felt it hit me like a tsunami wave as soon as my last hour was clocked in and I was off shift. I went to go buy a bottle of vodka and headed home. I passed out. I woke up and drank. I passed out. I woke up, and took a sleeping pill to go back to sleep. I woke up, and drank everything.

I cried...hard.

I argued with myself. I judged myself. I resented myself.

This was the burn out. I had no excuses. I had no priorities. I had no responsibilities. I could finally let myself fall down on my knees.

I deserved this.

I passed my classes. I worked all of my required hours.
I got straight A's. I was a reasonable employee.

I sacrificed my mental health in order to be successful.

Now I'm trying to rebuild myself. I'm sleeping a lot more. I need it. I'm reading for leisure only, it's nice to get to my collection of books, rather than the ones issued from school. I'm listening to all of my favorite songs, really, really loud when I can. It's therapeutic for me.  I'm trying to get back into gaming, but it's difficult. I'm trying to quit junk food/pop/soda, that's hard at the moment, but it's not impossible.

I'm slowly picking myself back up. I need to take time to put the pieces of my mind back together.
