New Divine Jazz Site Underway

After years of performing at events from Minnesota to Tennessee singer Joy Divine of Divine Jazz decided that it was time to have an individual website on a custom domain to exhibit upcoming and past events.  The simplicity and gray tone of the WordPress built site bring forth the feeling of the early 1900s style music Divine Jazz perform on stage to inspire their audiences.


Though there are a few cosmetic changes still being decided on for the new site the most energizing moment will happen when music, videos of concerts, and new galleries join to the excitement.  The theme chosen by Joy was built by SmartWPress and is designed for both musicians and artist to publish there marvelous talents with the world over the Internet.  The photographs used on the site are glamorous images by Bethany at LumineEssence Photography and more will be on the way in the future.



Better Late Than Never

This is a sketch of a person I came across while looking for Halloween ideas a few months ago.  Although I have been busy both at work and home I have finally finished the drawing.  It honestly doesn’t matter what day of the year it is anyway, makeup and costumes with or without prosthetic is its own art.

Though I enjoyed using various CAD programs to build the rooms in my  digital images it felt as if the work was not entirely mine.  Since my first graduation, with the help of my past professor, I have created a program using C++ and OpenGL to build custom rooms with texture files created using photography and Photoshop.

My application Room Builder starts off with an aerial view to draw the plot of walls and structures. With the touch of a key the view changes to a three dimensional, first person point of view with grid.


Hawk Feather Studio


As a fiber artist Hawk Feather Studio is always working on new handmade projects such as braiding, felting, knitting, variety of loom shapes and things that are new to me each time we talk.  Since everything is so original and always changing I created a new blog theme website for her to post each of the new astounding pieces of art as she creates them to sell, donate to organizations or as gifts for her many friends and family.

Art With A Current

Electrical Bass from Body to Head


After many years of installing new electric work, switches, and sockets in my family’s homes the extra material has become one of my favorite mediums.  After hours of stripping twelve and fourteen gauge copper wire that had been separated and sealed for protection, anything is bendable from the soft metal.

After having WordPress installed as only a subdomain to my website for several years as a side project, the blog is now the front and most important part of my personal domain  As a self maintained personal website I hope to discuss and display my artwork, websites, information technology, and anything else that I enjoy in my personal time.

Please feel free to visit my entire site, contact me if you have any questions, and publish your own thoughts and questions in the comment sections for discussion.

Recommendation on LinkedIn

Several days ago a recommendation was posted on my LinkedIn (link) page by our client Barbara C. under recommendations (you must have a LinkedIn account to view).  For those of you that do not have a LinkedIn account, here is what she wrote:

“Perfect website development for a person, like myself, who is less than savvy (okay, extremely less than savvy) when it comes to the technical aspects of websites. Josh takes care of developing and maintaining my website so that I can concentrate on my creative endeavors. Being an accomplished artist and musician in his own right, Josh understands the demands of the sometimes frazzled and scatterbrained artistic personality. I highly recommend Josh Burkhart.”

Thank you Barbara C., I have enjoyed helping you and will continue to do so!
