So this wonderful site turns 14 today. Holy Moses!  I can't believe this site is 14 years old and I've been a part of it as a member for 11 years. Anyway, I'll keep this short as I'm not much of a writer so here's my story on DA in a nut shell.

I've been coming to this site since 2002, drawm to it (Ha HA, no pun intended) by the large Wallpaper gallery and I was really into desktop wallpapers at the time. I found that the more I looked throughout the wallpaper gallery, the more I got inspired and decided to create my own wallpapers and share it with the community. I joined up with DA in June of 2003. Being the introverted artist that I am, I was nervous at first but found a small group of artist's, with a few stand out internet artist friends,  that I still talk with and get inspired by; I'm looking at you gregoriousone and Senecal, among others.

It's funny to look back and my gallery and see the Time line of DA and bask in the flood of memories from the meteoric rise of deviantArt which brought about the Bandwidth Crisis, the drama around Jark, the artist friends the came and went, with a llama or two here and there. I've seen my art work mature along the way too, helped in part by the wonderful, talented, and amazing artists that I've found here and gotten to know and be inspired by.

Happy Birthday, dA!

Brambles And Blue by cogwurx
Brambles And Blue

Oil on canvas

I initially had this idea to make this into a design for a skateboard deck, but the design didn’t really feel right as the painting evolved. I may still put this on a skateboard once I get a better photograph, we’ll see.

I really like these Morpho butterflies!

Flutter by cogwurx


28” x 18”
Oil on Canvas

This was an interesting painting to work on. I had a composition in mind, but after I completed the composition it didn’t look good, so I went back to my sketch and reworked the composition. The result was this more organic piece with the addition of the butterfly, which I really like. I enjoyed painting the butterfly I may want to find another excuse to do another painting with a butterfly.

JZ Artworks 2014 by cogwurx
JZ Artworks 2014
My wife is a freelance children's book illustrator and her web site was woefully out of date in both UI and branding. The challending part about this design is that my wife's branding is very simple with no real color standard, instead it was all shapes. Hence, the curved design elements with just a single color that compliments the main, promoted image.
