In honor of the raging storm outside my window and the fact that I started reading A Wrinkle in Time tonight (for the hundredth time), here are some amazing photos (and some photo manips) of gorgeous lightning and thunderclouds by the talented Mathieu Degrotte.







“Wild nights are my glory,” Mrs Whatsit said. “I just got caught in a down draft and blown off course.” – Madeleine L’Engle, A Wrinkle in Time

I just love the colors on these. Gorgeous work. Check out more of his artwork (he is also a talented artist) and photography on his deviantart page. You can also find him on Facebook and Tumblr.

Never Neverland.

I haven’t posted art here in a looooonnnngggg time, so since I finally finished a digital painting I’ve been working on since September, I thought I’d post it. Let me know what you think. (Click on it for a bigger image.)


This was based on a short story that centered on the theme Neverland. You can read that story here. It was written by SMZ, at, for a contest that I helped host at Brigit’s Flame. I got to do a painting for the winner and this is it.

Okay, back to eating potato skins and watching Third Rock from the Sun.
