My gallery consists of sketches, photography (including stock), poetry, songs, and prose. Be sure and take a glance through my scraps as well. Enjoy!

If you are interested in any of my songs, please check out my YouTube webpage. I'm still working on putting stuff on the site so please be patient and check back regularly.…

It's been a long while since I've updated my journal, hasn't it? Some of you might think I just dropped off the face of the earth and I might as well have done just that.

I've barely touched deviantArt for about 7 months. One month of that was due to me participating in NaNoWriMo, about three months of it was just me being lazy, and the past three is due to a number of complicated things. I won't go into the details, but I've been working through some personal stuff and it's taken a massive toll on my inspiration and motivation to do artwork. The only thing that hasn't been seemingly stamped out is my ability for writing lyrics or poetry, because, to me, that is the most effective outlet I have for expressing the emotions I've experienced during my absence.

Like I said, it's all pretty personal. These days, my life is so consumed with work and my tiny excuse for a social life that my creative side has tremendously and regrettably suffered. Be patient with me, guys. I haven't uploaded a lot of stuff due to the aforementioned subjects, and my account will probably continue to be dead for a little bit longer. I don't know when I'll emerge from this pattern, but I know I will at some point.

If you pray, please pray for me. If not, that's alright. Just thanks for listening and faithfully following my work, no matter how little of it I manage to churn out.

Again, I'm sorry for the absence. Hopefully I can get back into the swing of things soon.

For those of you who stick around to enjoy my work, I appreciate you. You guys are awesome.

Let me tell you a little bit about myself.

I am a Christian and have no regret in saying it. All of my hope is in God, for He is the only one who truly knows who I am.

I'm a self taught artist, which means I've only grown by studying other artists styles and then applying what I learn in my own work. I try to be well rounded in my art. Writing is my passion, but drawing, music, photography, and film-making are things I enjoy as well. My gallery speaks for me on these matters so please take a look.

I'm a good listener, a reckless dreamer, and a little on the quiet side.

I have an incredible appreciation for art in every form. Art is creation, and creation is beautiful.

Thanks for stopping by.

Personal Quote: I am who I am, your opinion isn't needed.


Holding on to something that's already gone
It's time for me to let you go and move on
I'm not everything you hoped I would be
We can't change who we are
So you made the choice to be free
while I watched from afar

(It's only a bruise
The pain will fade with time
I have paid my dues
Now I'm turning with the tide
May not seem like it now
But I'll get through this somehow
It's only a bruise)

The night deepens around me and it breaks my heart
to know that what we could be has just fallen apart
I know you never meant to hurt me
Change is a part of life
My only hope is that we can see
and embrace this distant light


I need time to heal from this
It's the simple things that I'll miss
It's so hard to let you go
but now I know

I finally have the strength to see
as I light the fuse
You say it wasn't meant to be
I say it's only a bruise

Only a Bruise
Writing is my outlet. I've been going through some hard times lately and writing lyrics is sometimes the most effective way to release whatever emotions are trapped inside me.


Here's the link to the video if you're curious about the melody.…
My heart lies bleeding on the floor
and I feel so cold inside
I'm waiting to know something more
as my life and this wall collide
The pains surface in my dreams
haunting me when I wake
Now nothing is as it seems
I just can't ease the ache

But somewhere within this haze
a gentle voice pulls me from my daze

(Hold on
even when it hurts
Reach out
I'll lead you through this storm
I will never leave you
Your tears can be transformed
I will always hear your cries
Find the strength to lift you eyes
You heartbreak will make you strong
Just hold on)

So, one by one I find the pieces
of my shattered heart
With time my soul releases
these shackles that bind and scar
Even when the memories
take me back to that dark place
I won't let them break me
I'll just focus on your face
when you say


You never promised it would be easy
You never said it wouldn't hurt
But you promised to stay with me
and it's so much more than I deserve

Hold On
Yet another song. I seem to be writing a lot of them lately, though this one has more of a silver lining than my most recent lyrical ventures.

I know you probably hear this somewhat frequently, but you are just so-damn-fabulous. Just.. just absolutely beautiful. Seriously, every time there's a BlackWingStock update and you're the model for the image in question, it absolutely makes my day. Keep up the good work!
