The Beginning of a Blog
There comes a time when ambition must turn to action, and for years now I’ve wanted to start up a blog so after much peer pressure and procrastination – here it is! AKcreative simultaneously acts as a platform to publish my writing and also showcase an array of magnificent music and artwork that’s created by passionate people who I admire or am privileged enough to call my friend.
I intend to post as frequently as possible and hope that this site can inspire your own creativity or at least introduce you to some of the unbelievable and often unseen art that’s made in a multitude of medias.
The first post is a series of collages I did for a 40 page piece I wrote about the being a biker both in Pittsburgh and the modern ‘Age of the Automobile’. It was the longest piece I’ve ever written and rather than be one long continuous essay I used these collages to break up and string together the separate sections. These are some of the only collages I’ve ever done and each one began with a concept followed by lots of cutting and pasting to assemble an assortment of words and images that can collectively convey a multitude of meanings. I’ll try to post some snippets of my writing that correlates to the various collages sometime soon, but till then here’s some eye candy! Just click the link and enjoy.
