    Cristian S. Aluas - Fine Art, Comics, Graphic Novels

    in Art

    Cristian S. Aluas is a painter, comics artist and graphic novelist in Kanata/Ottawa, Canada.
    Artist Statement
    "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. "

    The Author Chat Show with Lynda D. Brown

    in Books

    Meet author Chis Smith. He'll be joining me on the show Saturday, Jan. 31 to discuss his book series, Angels Without Wings.


    About the books:


    For God, we fight; all angels have heard the command. Troy Decker has heard it from his parents countless times. All he wants in life is a chance to prove himself and be granted his scepter - the first gift angels receive from God in their war against Lucifer. Standing in his way is fallen angel Kyle Downey, who is on a quest to destroy the world. As the War for Sins rises to heights not seen in generations, Troy must find the strength to hold his faith when demons target his friends and family.


    About the author:


    Chris Smith ignited his love of stories on his sixteenth birthday when his parents gave him a leather bound copy of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Every year since, he has picked up the book and fallen into the world of hobbits, wizards, warriors, and orcs. To him, it’s a birthday present that will continue to be given each and every year for the rest of his life. He began writing at the age of nineteen as a way to purge his mind of cascading plots and reveal the untold stories of characters who follow him around in his day-to-day life. To date, he has written fifteen novels falling mostly into the young adult, fantasy genre; but he has delved into suspense, crime drama, and post-apocalyptic categories as well.
