The Art Form of Envy

The red sun rakes the grass,
caressing the metal holding the hefty
tabletop desk,

where he vigorously scribbles his visions
on the paper, bowing and stretching
to the breeze,
held down by his left,
pictures etched with his right.

Lead whiskers coordinated on the page,
his hand blends shapes in the page,
morphed from ideas in his mind.

He is occasionally mindful
of the vast meadows
surrounding him,
preserving him and his
flavor of the arts.

Sitting in my small black box,
this pinhole camera reflects
his perfections on the wall
like filming April Fools
onto my forehand.

I try and fail
to imitate his art
like an ape imitating
human lifestyle.
I am trapped
in the zookeeper’s cage.

Hey, everyone. How are you? I’m doing pretty well. My name is Steven. I’ve been living in Pittsburgh for a few years now. What sort of projects have I been working on, you ask? Well, I’ve assisted with several indie film productions in that time, mostly directly behind the camera or working with camera operations. It has been pretty fun. I’ve also been working on several other projects individually. This website is a collection of those projects that I do on in my spare time. Please click on the links above to learn about some of the work that I do in digital media and writing. I hope you enjoy my collection, which is a combination of old, archived work and new content I am compelled to share with you. Please feel free to interact, engage, and help me make some friends and colleagues in the creative media communities!
