I Love The Smell Of Blogging In The Morning

I hate when "work" gets in the way of the really important things in life... like blogging. I would apologize for not having any new posts up in a minute, but it seems there are a few people out there that are willing to pay me to take pictures for them... and... well... I'd rather be doing that than blogging.

Well, what better way to kick off the week than with a little 19th century painting? None. I keep a pretty epic list on my 'notepad' app in my phone, littered with bits and pieces of things I find, see and hear that strike me as interesting. A couple days ago, I scrolled through and found the name, John Martin. Having no clue why I had found the need to record the name, I googled it and remembered. You know those bands that make fantasy metal about dragons, kingdoms in far-off lands, white knights and Ancient Forests Of Elves? Well, if they were around in the 1800s, they would've had JM do their cover art. Ahead. Of. His. Time. Epic.

And since I know you're dying for more Luca Turilli, I give you what youtube user, XHASSUNAX, said should be "the national anthem of EARTH!!!!!!!!" I couldn't agree more.
