Desolate

This is a picture I made in GIMP from a variety of photos and pieces of art I found around the internet. Image is 2560x1440. I think it has a very post-apocalyptic sense about it which is reflective of isolation people feel now, I don't know that doesn't really make sense but whatever.

Starry Night Chicago

The title is a play on the Van Gogh picture and an Alkaline Trio lyric, I think though I can’t remember the exact song so it might not be. I’ve just got a snippet of a song playing in my head when I read the title, so I think it probably is. This picture was made by mixing a few pictures that been messed with or run through filters and with a bit of masking and the like in GIMP. 2560×1440.

The Problem with Introspection

I made this picture with GIMP 2.8. I think it’s a good warning, introspection is fine, but you always have to remember you can introspect forever and do nothing.

Thought to Character – K. Sri Dhammananda

“The thought manifests as the word, The word manifests as the deed, The deed develops into habit, And the habit hardens into character. So watch the thought and its way with care, And let it spring from love Born out of concern for all beings.” – K. Sri Dhammananda

The Buttefly Effect

I made this picture using GIMP 2.8, most of the work went into making the background seem parchment-y and dirty enough for my taste.

A mountain is composed of tiny grains of earth. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water. Even so, life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches, and thoughts. And the consequences whether good or bad of even the least of them are far-reaching.

– Swami Sivananda

Like a Dream

The title is taken from the quote. “The world, indeed, is like a dream and the treasures of the world are an alluring mirage! Like the apparent distances in a picture, things have no reality in themselves, but they are like heat haze.” – Buddha

A Hole in the Seam of Reality

I made this picture in GIMP. I think it looks kind of cool, but it doesn’t real seem to mean anything. The title is just a line from a Matchbook Romance song I remembered when I was trying to think of a title. “i’m a dreamer with nothing left to dream trying to tear a hole in the seam of reality.” This is also my first 4k picture. I would like to do everything 4k, but my sources are all much smalller and my shitty laptop doesn’t seem to like working with big pictures. I suppose I need more ram and a better processor.
