Radio Static (graphic art)

Photo originally taken in Nashville, TN, in 2019.

This is a photo originally of the Parthenon in Nashville, TN, from a trip Rachel and I took in 2019. I’m hoping we can get back to Tennessee soon to see her family! Anyway, I like the green color in this distorted graphic. For whatever reason, the waviness and distortion of the image reminded me of a visual representation of radio static, hence the title.

Mr. Franz Kafka (graphic art)

More graphic art! I took this Wikimedia Commons image of Franz Kafka and played around with it. I like the spirals in the background, and the red hue was my favorite of the colors.

Nightmare Alley (graphic art)

Photo originally taken in Philadelphia in the spring of 2020 (when the pandemic first hit).

Here’s another graphic art piece I created on Canva. The original photo was taken in Philly in the spring of 2020 when the pandemic first hit.

Alien Landscape (graphic art)

Photo originally taken in Pennsylvania, US, in spring/summer of 2020.

Here’s a photo I took early last year of a creek in the suburbs of Philly.

Doing the graphic art stuff has been fun and soothing – I just turn on some tunes and play around. Something to occupy myself during these endless pandemic days!

The Church & the Park (a drawing)

Here’s another one of my art therapy drawings. Like many people, I love old churches, especially ones with big steeples and clocks. I also like this drawing because of the wide expanse of the grassy area.
