There is a theme and participants create two pages based on their interpretation of that theme. Only participants are eligible to receive a copy of the HOWiezine, and when theyre gone, theyre gone. (quoted from www.howiezine.com) I have always tried to incorporate mythology into my design work whenever possible, and this theme was the perfect chance for me to take a classic fairy tale and twist it ever so slightly to give it something new, yet familiar.Poem reads:Poem reads:The Sleeping BeautyDarkness fell uponThe sleeping beauty.Her pale face glowedBy the moon's light.Peaceful as she lay,Her secret hidden.Until the nightA charming rider appeared,Drawn to her side.He pressed his lips to hersOnly to discoverShe had taken away his last breath.2006 Nicholas J.

He specializes in collateral materials, especially hi-end wine, microbrewery beers, and gourmet foods.

Nicholas’ love of art began around age 12 with his discovery of comic books. While he wanted to become a comic book artist, destiny had other plans and he became a designer and illustrator instead. His muses are the moon, mythology, and music which inspire his dark, dreamlike illustrations and poetry.
In his spare time, Nicholas enjoys photographing architectural details, clouds, grave stones, and weathered objects. A serious Netflix addict, he spends many a weekend watching movies. He also spends a fair amount of time thinking about and eating cookies. Don’t worry he also walks a lot.
