Craig Blundell’s Portrait

Yesterday, I finished painting the portrait of drummer Craig Blundell who is working with me on the new album “Paradigms”. Here’s the end result with a touch of creepiness and a bit of fantasy. Thank you Michael Giordano for the inspiration :)

If you want your own portrait digitally painted by me, check out the limited “Prog Legend” perk on the IndieGogo campaign

I also started working on the new album cover and artwork; you can watch the progress on my Twitch channel. I’m painting the cover myself and streaming the progress along the way. I’ll start streaming later today, so make sure you follow me on Twitch to get notified when I go live twitch.tv/metroprog

Special Guest: Derek Sherinian

Yesterday in Sons of Apollo, today in Semantic Saturation. None other than your beloved keyboard virtuoso Derek Sherinian will be the special guest one more time on the new album “Paradigms”

Derek is extremely excited to be part of the new release, he is constantly following up with me on the progress. His keyboard parts are delicious and will make your face melt, I know cause it happened to me and I paid a fortune to have it fixed by a plastic surgeon.

I will announce the bass player next week. Stay tuned!
