Original artwork for the BT album "These Hopeful Machines".

This was painted on two canvases 15 x 45 inches each. Painted with oils.

It took me over a month to finish. I consider it one of the best things I have ever made.

I can't offer it for as a print, but thought I'd share what the full artwork looks like. Get the album! It'll rock your world.

This is fantastic, I ran across a BT track online, and had to see who did the art. :D Keep up the good work.

I featured you in my new journal here: [link] Have a nice day! :)
OK, The only thing that matches the beauty of BT's music in the wonderful album "These Hopeful Machines" is the artwork, I love it so much, and I want a large copy to plaster to my wall or something lol
Some day I will get this. I bought the digital copy so I don't have a solid copy of the art work sadly :(

Considering it your best, and how. It definitely is quite a work and use of colors is magnificent. Props for working with BT, as I really love his music, and this art more then compliments his musical style. Peace.

I'll be completely honest in saying that your work for the cover is part of the reason why I decided to buy the album in the first place. Incredible work!

This is the most beautiful album cover I have ever laid eyes upon, and for my favorite album of all time. The visual theme presented in this work matches the feeling of These Hopeful Machines perfectly. An absolute masterpiece.

This is probably my favorite out of all of your paintings, incredible work sir!
No Prints?! 'Sigh' oh well. This is probably one of my favorite pieces I have found. Not to mention for one of my favorite musicians as well! Simply amazing sir!

So YOU are the amazing artist behind this album's cover! WOW That's incredible work. You really visually captured BT's amazing soundscapes. Great interpretation! "These Hopeful Machines" is actually my favorite album of all time (of any genre). Previously "Movement In Still Life" held that spot (also by BT). Amazing artwork for an amazing album.

You are brilliant. I love themes of boys looking into water and seeing their reflection. I just bought the CD, just for your artwork , and my son will love the music. Okay, I might just like the music too.
