Redlow.net

Welcome to redlow.net, an ancient place of power birthed from the remains of an abandoned roman internet super highway. A site so antique, it's everything and nothing at once. Once in a blue moon I might update a thing.

This is a very, very short screenplay that came from a playwriting class at EIU. It stars two old Ultima Online friends and a fictional talking rat (well, real enough in this story).

A PDF format version of descriptions of various colleges at Eastern Illinois University. This was written during a 6 month internship at EIU, where I worked in the University's publications department. These descriptions appeared in the primary marketing booklet for their "i am eiu." campaign that was rolling out in 2004 and, as of 2016, is still in use today.

A very simple randomization-driven app to waste your time.  It generates a random name and statistics of intergalatic locations, for your favorite science fiction projects.

Unfortunately in my efforts to rebuild my site, my memory is foggy on this short story, but I believe it came out of a Meetup "Just Write" session challenge. The character is extremely loosely based on a real cab driver, although I'm sure he wasn't named Nugget, and takes a short, humorous stab at explaining his motives and personality.

A bench free-handed in 3D Studio Max. A simple granite texture has been applied with, I believe, a bump map. Rendered with one light.

For the holiday season in 2013, Symmetri decided they wanted something a little different than a holiday card. They challenged me to create a quick web game. The result was a simple shooting game in which you try to knock ornaments off a reindeer's antlers.

A model designed in 3D Studio Max; built from a profile view on graph paper. No textures; just rendered with lighting.

A simple, still-more-to-do life counter for Magic: the Gathering.

Arguably, although probably not true, this is my best piece of fiction. Having nothing to do with the movie with a similar name, it is instead about two lab researchers at a university investigating the existence (or lack of) god. It's science fiction as well, in that holograms run rampant in this world, and more often than not, serve as a metaphor for God, God's love, or just love itself. If you like artsy, but still entertaining short stories, you'll enjoy it.

A poem about a former love interest, who shall remain safely anonymous. Although it sounds abstract, each line has specific meaning.

A UO player whose character was "Rok Hagor" interviewed me one evening. It was.. uh, real?

A free-form tree built in 3D Studio Max. One of the last models I built, this one has some texture work along with 2D planes with leaves to create the illusion of full foliage.
