Danny, a model, was excited to have his portrait done to promote his underwear brand.  It took a number of months and upon showing him the final result he shared it on his Facebook and Instagram pages on 01/12/16.  I consider it an accomplishment due to the painstaking, traditional execution of the drawing itself.

This section is intended just to make mention of my investment in music. I’m no concert pianist (haven’t performed in concert…yet–wink wink) but I’ve taken it seriously enough to teach myself taxing classical compositions since I was 14.

…Hey! I can play and sing like a boss.

My men of choice are Schubert, Chopins, Beethoven (typical, I know), Gounod, and Bach.  I hope to get Liszt under my belt as well…sometime when I have the time.

My women of choice (yes) are Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga…you know.

That aside…I compose too.  I actually began composing before I even knew about notes, which sounds absurd, but somehow it worked to great effect.  Now I write in grand staff like any other ‘music-person’.

So, this post will be a mixing bowl of some clips, classical alongside original.   These will be dated, fragmented, and quirky, but hey– it’s still something before I go for studio recordings. (Stay tuned for that…)  Further updates will be posted here.

There are other clips floating about, some of which on my Instagram page.  The rest (Waterfall Etude, Moonlight Sonata) is in my head I’m afraid… I’ll have to film and get more clips up.
