(Has it been a long time since I did these journal entries?)

Anyway, hope everybody is having a great Easter (or, if you're Jewish, Passover) so far! Right now I'm just chilling out but there may be plans to go to church later today.

And as the title suggests, yesterday was the season premiere of MLP. Yes, I have watched it (even though I'm no longer a brony); the only spoiler I'm gonna give out is that it tackles some themes of communism. And that it looked and sounded like North Korea to me. I dunno, maybe I've read too much of that country. Maybe. I don't have plans to watch the rest of Season 5, though. Already moved on. But I still had a little hype in me when the guys over at Discovery Family showed a couple previews of the two-parter.

Again, hope you're having a nice Easter/Passover! And if you're not celebrating it today, then have a great day wherever you may be.

Life is like a big merry-go-round:
you're up and then down,
going in circles trying to get to where you are...

Everybody's been counting you out;
where are they now?
Sitting in the same old place,
just faces in the crowd...

We all make mistakes;
you might fall on your face,
but you gotta get up!

Chorus
I'd rather stand tall
than live on my knees,
'cause I am a conqueror,
and I won't accept defeat!

Try telling me "no";
one thing about me
is I am a conqueror,
I am a conqueror, oh!

Got a vision that no one else sees,
lot of dirty work, roll up your sleeves;
Remember there's a war out there,
so come prepared to fight!

You never know wherever the road leads you,
not everyone's gonna believe you;
even though they're wrong, don't prove them right!

Chorus

I am a conqueror!

We all make mistakes;
you might fall on your face,
but you gotta get up!

We all make mistakes,
you might fall on your face;
don't ever give up!

Chorus

I am a conqueror!

We all make mistakes,
you might fall on your face;
but I am a conqueror!

Estelle, Conqueror
First Steven Universe wallpaper from yours truly! I had this idea stuck in my head for a little while after having watched the show and listening to Estelle's song "Conqueror". (Estelle provides the voice of Garnet, in case you didn't know.) I wanted to have a red sky as the background for this piece, reflecting the song's uplifting lyrics and overall production, and went on from there, adding clouds and a flock of birds to it (an Impala first!). Final touches included adjusting the background's brightness and additional color corrections. (The gradient map made a huge difference in what I wanted it to look.)

A JPG version of the wallpaper can be found here.

I'm on the outside looking in...
(Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, yeah...)
I don't mind at all, I know where I am!
(Whoa-oh, whoa-oh, yeah...)

All this time I waited for you,
we don't gotta wait no more!
All you gotta do is let me reach you
anywhere you are, yeah!

Let me be your home
wherever you go, wherever you go,
yeah, you should let me be your home,
a hundred million miles away, you know!

I'd fly right up to Mars; I'm on the ocean floor,
I'm running circles around the world for you!
So let me be your home;
wherever you go, wherever you go, I'll be your home!

Let Me Be Your Home by Hardwell feat. Bright Lights

Back and better than ever! This is my first wallpaper since November 2014 - and the first one to use a render of a model (celebrities not included). It's also the official start of a new chapter for me as a graphic designer as well as an Adobe Certified Associate.

Let Me Be Your Home goes back to the minimalistic style I've always been known for, with bright, vivid colors and warm elements that reflect the uplifting nature of Hardwell and Bright Lights's collaboration off the former's debut album, United We Are.

A JPG version of this wallpaper can be found here.

Songs listened to during the making of this wallpaper
Bullet; Pink Hardwell - "Let Me Be Your Home" - featuring Bright Lights
Bullet; Orange Dirty South & Alesso - "City of Dreams" - featuring Ruben Haze
Bullet; Yellow Mr. Probz - "Nothing Really Matters"

Cover art for Archie's (previously Desso) latest song, "Wings", featuring vocals from Maria. It's also my first work since rebooting my laptop and reinstalling all the necessary programs needed, including Photoshop - and takes me back to where my stint at Wolf Beats started - making artwork for brony producer-turned-mainstream EDM star Archie. Credit for the wings depicted goes to shadavar-stock.
