Pillar of Salt (2022)

On late summer evenings, the gnomes gather near a giant rock salt formation shaped like a boy to tell the tales of old forbidden places. To turn back is dangerous but to remember is vital. Every young gnome must learn that you cannot step in the same river twice.

Pillar of Salt (2022) is an 8 track original MIDI release inspired by video game soundtracks. It’s the result of my first 7 months of learning music for fun. The full album is available for free on Soundcloud.

I also designed the album art.

Pattern

Romanesco (2021)

A repeating surface design based on Roman cauliflower. This is the harvest of a design idea that I’ve tried to grow since Kernel of Truth (2018). It also bloomed into Pandemonium (2020) and Hydra (2020) along the way. Now it is ready to fill the plane the way it was meant to.

The printed fabric is available for purchase on Spoonflower.
