While I greatly enjoy sci-fi and fantasy art and feel an affinity toward their communities, my artistic orientation is fundamentally different. "Shadow Guardian," and other "fantasy" style works I create, are expressions of reality. They are transmissions of beings and places that actually exist and can be perceived through sincere spiritual practice. In other words, these visions cannot be created just through the development of technical skill, but require the development of the soul to access and communicate.
The pursuit of a higher reality is what differentiates the many great artists with the few of true relevance and transformative power.
