Pencil sketch by artist Juan Montoya titled "Imagination"
The creativity cycle every artist goes through
Artist who listen to their hearts create masterpieces
This picture is a perfect example of what I love to draw, out of the ordinary images. This picture is displaying the moon and the sun as one. They are interlaced within each other. The combination of the sun and the moon may not seem as out of the ordinary, but it really is because they are the complete opposite of each other. In my drawings, I like to combine real life thing with unrealistic ones because I find the combination very interesting; just like this image of a carving of the sun and moon in stone. Even though carving is not what I do, the image it created is still something I could draw in the future. For me, this work represents everything in life. The sun represents the bright, happy and good times of life. While the moon shows the bad and darker times. There are both good and bad times in life, but they are all the qualities that make life so interesting because without one the other can not exist. With no good times their can not be bad times, and vice versa because if all you have is good times, you can really call them good times because you have not experienced the bad times. You are unable to make the comparison. The life cycle, in a way, is shown through this carving; the good times, the bad times, and the times in the transition between each one.
Professional artist Jeff Faerber painted this piece named “Atlas.” It is his version of the popular sculpture of the Greek god Atlas, who carries the weight on the world on his shoulders. Jeff Faerber’s style of is nothing short of amazing. His paintings are very unique. I have never seen any painting like his. The fact that he leaves every line he makes on the canvas in the final painting instead of erasing them or covering them up makes his piece unique. Most professional painters make their paintings as clean and error free as possible, but not him. That is what I love about his work. It appears that he does not see those extra lines as errors, but as another important part of the painting. Another very interesting characteristic about his painting is the he does not painting realistically. He makes his paintings seem like paintings and not like real life. The way he blends the paint is also what some may call messy, but that makes them stand up ever more from the rest. Jeff Faerber is someone I really look up to. I would love to follow in his footsteps. Some time in the future I plan on contacting him and asking him all sort of questions about the steps he took to get where he is now. I am really interested in hearing whatever advice he has for me. He has achieved what I one day also what to achieve. He paints and draws for a living, he has done album covers for two of my favorite bands, Finger Eleven and Three Days Grace, and has had his pieces displayed in galleries, websites, and magazines.

This picture is truly incredible. It looks almost unreal because of the intensity of the fire and the deer in the fron add to it.
It is especially important to music artists because we speak our mind into these objects. This mic can pick up any sound you make. By getting close to the Mic more of the direct sound is recorded and less of the reflected "hall tone" or room tone. Once you start using a quality microphone, you won't believe how noisy your home studio is. So tip #1 is always to get as close to the source as you can and do your best to remove unwanted sounds from creeping in. A quick peek to the high end shows that some microphone designs used today were formulated in the late 60's, that's thirty-five years ago! Since then countless models have been introduced, copied, repackaged with small refinements. Few areas of the recording studio have been as hotly debated as to which is "best" for a particularly recording application. Some of this is hype and some of this is not and it can be difficult to sort through the mazes of issues.
This right here is a REAL mixing board. this probably cost thousands and thousands of dollars.The Mackie 24-8 has 20 mono mic/line channels with XDR mic preamps PLUS two special line level channel strips. It has 28 XDR-equipped mic/line channels plus two special line level channels. Four buses make live mixing a breeze because you can submix groups of inputs and then control them with one fader – for example all of your background vocals or all your drum mics. On stage (or in the studio), XDR microphone preamps and VLZ® give these mixers fantastic headroom, great effects and cuts out noise. Mixers is are versatile. Besides the fact that our Hi and Lo shelving EQ are centered at useful frequencies – 12kHz and 80Hz, respectively – this mixer has a sweepable midrange EQ (on mono channels). I can center the midrange anywhere from 100Hz to 8kHz, low enough to use as a second low frequency EQ, and high enough to use in the high frequency range. (Stereo channels on both mixers have 4-band EQ, with 12kHz and 80Hz Hi and Lo shelving EQ, and two fixed mids at 3kHz and 800Hz.)And a low cut filter (on mono channels) centered at 75Hz allows me to cut out mic thumps and wind noise that can enter my mix and rob me of amplifier power.
With me being so young I want to make history in the music game. I want to be the youngest kid to start up a successful label. I believe I can do it. I just need more money. Way more money than I have now. That is why I'm trying to sell my beats. If you remember I told you that beats sell up to $25,000. I would love to have that kinda money right now. It is so difficult to do things in this music industry. With everybody who does or is trying to do the same thing it creates major competition. I'm getting somewhere though. That is me doing a concert when I was 13 year old. That was the second show I did. I had major fun. I haven't been able to do much shows since then. Booking them in California is really hard. I have 14 artist on my label not including myself. I am currently working with four artists cd's including mine. My cd will probably release last. It is going to be way better than my first one. I am sooo ashamed of that cd. The cover gave the illusion that it was tight and when you listen to it, it sounded all muffled. I can't believe I thought it was tight. I will do my best not to make that mistake again. My artists cd will be clear and so will mine. I can't wait but things take time and money. Until that time I'm trying to do shows and sharpen my engineering and producing skills.Until that time I'm trying to do shows and sharpen my engineering and producing skills.Until that time I'm trying to do shows and sharpen my engineering and producing skills.
