Cristian S. Aluas is a painter, comics artist and graphic novelist in Kanata/Ottawa, Canada.
"As an artist, I am on a creative journey to constantly derive more out of myself. Some of my favorite experiences with art have been when I pick up a pad of paper or am facing a blank canvas and do not quite know what I will draw or paint. I feel around for some shapes, with my pencil or pen, and soon enough a figure emerges.
I draw and paint, primarily, and occasionally I have built things out of wood or metal. My specialty is the human form, whether alone or interacting. I feel that a strong foundation in reality is important so that one can build a database of knowledge from which to extract references for creating subjects from ones imagination. I believe I have a fairly vast catalog of images, especially for drawing and painting people. I also like to challenge myself to try new things, like drawing and painting scenic backgrounds.
When I started out professionally, after College and University, I went into an abstract phase (my famous "Silverback" period) and then into the "Signature" period. The culmination of those two periods can be seen in my first masterpiece painting "Big Portrait #1." Then I went into a dark romantic period that blossomed into the brighter "Golden Boy" series. "

Inspired by Inspiration
What inspires me to write, create and imagine & what is my foundation for my inspiration in life:
Inspiration is one of the keys to development in your life.
It can bring to life great ideas and make you feel you can conquer the world. This one word can make people see who you truly are and what you stand for.
It is one of the most power words ever released from the mind. And will make the heart sit up and take notice of your desires.
It can make you leave a lasting legacy. " Don S. McClure"

Sandra S. McRae teaches creative writing, composition, and literature at Red Rocks Community College near Denver. She earned an M.A. in English Literature and Creative Writing from the University of Colorado-Boulder, holds a B.A. in English and French from Colorado State University, and won a Fulbright Scholarship to Germany. Her poetry has appeared in national print and online magazines, includingGlass, Steam Ticket, Word Riot, Pure Francis, and Poets Against War. Many of her poems begin as dream transcripts. For Sandra, the advent of a dream poem signals a shift in consciousness or illuminates a needed revelation. A dream poem can also be just pure gift, with imagery one couldn’t access in a conscious state. Sandra encourages her students to pay attention to their dreams, for they offer not only signposts to peace and equilibrium, but astounding, memorable imagery.
