Big news! Safer in the Dark is going back to its roots as a consumer digest blog focused on music, film, etc. This means all of my artwork is moving to a new space that can better display it in all of its glory: scrambledgreggs.com.

scrambled greggsThe site was built using Django and Tastypie on the back-end API, Backbone.js, Require.js, Underscore.js, and LessCSS on the front-end, and Heroku and AWS S3 for free.99 web hosting. I’ll be posting all my new work there as it is completed, so check back frequently for updates!

A fun little project I started to get myself back into photoshop collages. These are all made from collaging and applying effects to search results that came up when I googled “the letter _”. I used the names of some of my friends (and pets) for inspiration – let me know if you want one with your name!

I know it’s a bit excessive, but I have so much fun looking at good album art and writing album art lists that I just couldn’t restrain myself. #11-40 are in alphabetical order in the gallery and the top 10 are enumerated below. FYI, this year’s general theme seemed to involve enticing me to listen to metal or hardcore by means of mouth-watering album art. Feast your eyes below:

10. flatsound – sleep10. flatsound - sleep

9. People Get Ready – People Get Ready

8. Trey Anastasio – Traveler
