Album cover for a remix EP. Ink on paper, digital editing.
I occasionally make custom maps for the articles I write. My spouse Amy (a geospatial data analyst) helps me with the technical aspects. I use QGIS with map layers from OSM and other opensource providers, and follow with further editing in GIMP and/or printing, rephotographing (etc.) if aesthetically appropriate.
One of my favorite now-defunct genres is the quick-and-dirty 1980s Mid-Budget Movie Song. Enabled by decreasing music production costs in the digital era (synths, drum samplers, etc), the best Mid-Budget Movie Songs sound as if they were written on a same-day deadline while a coked-up Hollywood exec was yelling terrible ideas at the musicians over the phone. Haphazard, first-draft lyrics with the movie's title awkwardly shoehorned in complete the look.

I love metal logos and decided to start a project to practice making them. "My New Metal Band" pairs metal logos of odd words (above: Tamagotchi, Ogg Vorbis, Piña Colada) with tongue-in-cheek descriptions of each hypothetical band's music. Ink, watercolor, and digital editing.
