The hiatus is over! Please understand any hiatus from this blog DOES NOT mean I have stopped working on the project--it means I am working harder than ever! Some things I have accomplished in the last two months:
Finished Season 1 script (100pages)--CHECK! Made some money from unrelated projects (so this one can keep going)--CHECK! Went to LA for CTNX and made many important contacts--CHECK! Got professional feedback on my work--CHECK! Ate some great Japanese food--CHECK! Designed a totally new website (coming soon) --CHECK! Designed more of the world--CHECK! Acquired additional professional talent--CHECK! CHECK! CHECK!
Lots to be excited about. One of the many goals we have made include improving our web presence and our communication with our fans. The story and the project continues to grow! Here's some recent artwork from our design archives:
Jerusalem may look like this...so if you were thinking something less magical--HA! Jerusalem is perhaps the world's most magical city...ever. In its best days it was a city of great wealth and beauty.
Jerusalem's richer sections are filled with architecture like this.
Near Bath-Sheba on the Southern, desert side of Israel is Abraham's Well, a beautiful spring of water that served as an important and vital life-source in the arid Negev desert.
Not everyone is rich in Jerusalem. The poorest of the poor make their homes on tels--mounds that have been created by the repeated destruction of buildings over thousands of years. They have no choice but to live in these undesirable locations...until the next destruction comes along.
Lachish was arguably the next most important Judean city besides Jerusalem, the capital. The Lachish region is verdant green with spring flowers and beautiful limestone formations. Lachish itself was a great fortress...before the destruction.
The Hebron region lies due south of Jerusalem and consists of hill country blown dry with the hot, East Arabian winds.
In Jerusalem they build with rose-colored limestone and plants grow in abundance. Despite everyone living within the protection of the massive city walls that David built, the people have found creative ways to grow gardens in their wonderful mediterranean climate.
The richest parts of Jerusalem are ornately designed--a culture that was annihilated when the Chaldeans razed the city.
Jerusalem was ancient even in the year 600 BCE. There are ruins everywhere--lasting remnants of previous empires.
