Fiddling ... while Rome burns -

"After John Mora"

When it comes to inspiration, my blog roll features a few dozen individuals that have earned the right to sit where they do. I visit most of them every day and one of the more recent additions, John Mora's TYPOS.DAYLIGHT.FATE, has been playing with my head for months! Well, as I was aimlessly tottering about with a few fractal flames, my favorite digital drawing program and some of the usual suspect plug-ins at the Secret Visual Laboratory, up jumps the devil! It's impossible for me to deny the influence, John, so I dedicate this piece to you ... and, by the bye, it might be fun to see where you might take this after running it all through your chop shop! There's no urgency or pressure here, it just sounds like fun from where I sit.

I am honored - thank you -the Byrds today again in both my ears. God bless my iPod but not the iTunes store.

I miss record stores.

I will download and play with sometime soon.

Thank you.

Don't you have record stores anymore??? How horrible! Too modern for me.

This is a suitable tribute to John, very good indeed.

The colours are like from the eruption of a volcano. Are there some near Rome? Guess not!

Just a helpful hint, those kindergarten crayons (the size of a 20-gallon drum) require a sharper point for most of that work. :)
