"RE: Sanctuary (1997)"
Another gem from the early years. The white marble floor, the pool, the swirly aqua colors of the walls, the sense of depth via darkening of the anterior columns, the doorway to the mountainous outdoors: all combine perfectly to create a fascinating mystic atmosphere. Disappointingly, this masterpiece is only available in a paltry 800x600 resolution. Definitely on my wish list of things to be re-rendered in HD.

"The Rook link"
No idea what's going on with the link to The Rook (2002) and why it hasn't been fixed yet, but for those interested in it, it can still be obtained via the downloadable zip files available on this site.

"Where's the rook? "
The links and results for The Rook redirect to the Sanctuary..

"Broken something"
Not sure what's going on with this one. Title says Sanctuary, wallpaper link is called Room (image from 1997 I think), and I got here from 'The Rook' thumbnail on the 2002 page.

"Page not accessible"
Hey Ryan, this page is not accessible when scrolling through your artwork. Example: If I am looking at "Scrutiny" then click the thumbnail in the top left to get to this piece, it will go to a different wallpaper from 2002 (Rook). The only reason I can view this right now is because it is not broken on the mobile version of the site, but it is on the desktop version.

This is supposed to be The Rook.

"The Rook??"
The thumbnail for this image shows "The Rook," but when I click on it, it brings me to "Sanctuary." Do you have "The Rook" located elsewhere?

Thanks John. This was one of my faves from wayback.

"One of the best."
I love this one. For some reason, these old textures just get me every time. I kinda wish I could live here actually. It makes you wonder what's outside, who lives there, and why it exists. It would be pretty cool if you could make some of these old ones into some sort of 3D map that you could walk around in. Or maybe a full 360 degree image? I think all of your fans would love an image like that. Just something to think about :)

"Sanctuary"
I loved this one! It stayed as my desktop wallpaper for ages. I wish I had a 1600 resolution of it, but it might not lend itself well to that. Still, I miss it.
