Set up a new SoundCloud page a while back, for some of my very early works.

Bit of Catch-up

 Hello, all.

I've been hermiting a bit, as I know many of you have.
I continue creating & there is consistency & evolution.

Some groovy news:

Reached 1k followers on SoundCloud this week. Woots!!

BIG LOVE & THANKS to those who listen to my music & follow me on the various platforms.

Speaking of which...

I'm releasing all of my albums through CDBaby, & in doing so making my music available via various stores & streaming sites. Just do a search for my name wherever, & you'll see whatever works I have available at that point. Also stoked to be set up for commercial syndication. I'd love to be considered for media inclusion - film, TV, podcasts, etc. - so by all means, please get in contact & I can help you find pieces of mine that could suit your project. I am also, as ever, looking to score music & design sound for film, theater, dance... solo or in collaboration.... hit me up. I can create your theme music, your incidental music, your commercial jingle, your intro-outro music. The creepy, stormy background of your horror animation, or the bells-&-bumblebees sunshine sound bed for your fairy tale podcast. Anything in between, beyond, or besides. Lets talk.

I'm still working out some kinks in the paperwork w/ CDBaby, but 2 of my albums are available all around, so far:


Me @ Amazon * YouTube 

Both of these albums are available on Spotify, here: 

As ever, you can find me on 
(links open to my pages, in new windows)

All the other platforms, just do a search. More to come available soon! 
Again - thanks for listening, following, subscribing, sharing. Your support is PURE GOLD...
it truly helps me & my music out, & is very much appreciated 💖

PS ~ I created a post a while back, going into some detail about each song & its creation, for my LP 'Catch a Tiger...'. If you're into that sort of thing, you can find it here.

Page updated: Fine Art ~ 2-D

Therein you will find 2-D art that I've made by hand. Paintings, drawings, prints, & my latest adventure - collages. There's a link on the left, or you can get there by clicking here: Mita's 2D Fine Art.

The page features selected works from over the decades. Ones that I'm proud of, which I enjoy,  & that I feel most continue to represent me over time.

More to come soon, as I'm on a big visual art bender lately. The first piece on the new art page was completed only a few days ago, & more water-media will be posted soon.

Of note, regarding my 2-D art: My first job was as a helper/apprentice with a fine art oil painter in Phoenix, AZ. I learned *so much* working with her for 3 years, between the ages of 14 & 17. I prepped her surfaces in the very particular ways that she preferred, which - if a canvas - often required around a dozen coats of gesso, sanded & steel-wooled in between to create the glass-smooth but still-springy surface that she so loved (inspired by the canvases of her fave artist, Salvador Dali). The skills I learned from & with her - art skills, life skills, the art of storytelling - have assisted me in my own life's work ever since.

I also have a knack for imitating the work of other artists, & I've had other jobs assisting other artists with their own creations, as well, including the detailed painting, itself. Various styles.

Here's a list of the mediums/techniques I'm skilled with:

Acrylic
Oil
Watercolor
Gouache (new to me! Fun!)
Canvas & paper stretching & prep
Oil-based linoleum printmaking
Monoprints
Graphite pencils
Colored pencils
Ink work
Collage
Impressionism
Abstract
Expressionism
Trompe L'oeil
Illustration (figurative & otherwise)
Stained glass
Reverse-glass painting
Sculpture
Mold-building/Cast-making
Plaster
Paper Mache
Clay
Fimo/Sculpey
Metalwork
Soldering
Welding (gas, mig, tig)
Carpentry
Stage-building
Set/stage painting
Lighting design
Costume design & building
Model-making
Beadwork (lots)
Batik
Fabric Dying
Embroidery
Applique
Weaving


I'm sure I've left some off. They'll come to me later. In the meantime, if you're interested in working with/hiring me for an art project/job, & don't see that yours is a medium I'm already skilled with, try me! There's a chance I'm at the very least familiar with the technique, & I'm also quite savvy with new tools & techniques. Cheers!

Page updated :: Graphic Arts

You should be able to see the link to the left, but here's a shortcut: Mita's Graphic Art

Currently, it mostly showcases some of my more recent work, created over the last five years, with some very recent collages (created in the last month, June-July 2018).

Soon I will be adding older work, including the retail packaging design of my former incarnation as a specialist in this regard.

Check back soon for more, or inquire within if you wish to see samples of this work sooner.

Wolf Eats the Moon

Based on a true story. Names changed to protect the innocent.

from the 'Catch a Tiger by the Toe' LP, released 12/2014

This week's most listened to song: An oldie

This spooky little song came from the waste-not-want-not end bit of a tape during my 4-track days. All the music is from my Casio MT-140 keyboard, voice recorded w/ an SM-58, all onto my Yamaha MT-120 cassette 4-track. Some of my fave old tunes were the less-the-one-minute experimental bits that came from those master tape cassette leftovers. This one is no exception, and seems to remain a listener fave. It's also downloadable (free!) via Soundcloud. Enjoy!
