I've always been fascinated with caves. This image was used on the cover of the album "Treasure" by David Helpling and Jon Jenkins and won the NAR Best Cover Art Award in 2007. David was nice enough to send me the award and it is now on my bookshelf.

Cool! Can you tell me which episode? Did it have Neil Degrasse Tyson?

"HD version?"
Any chance of an HD (1920x1080) of this image? It's one of your finest imho!

"I don't know..."
When I read the title, "Cathedral" I expected something like an ultra-nostalgic wooden gigantic church with some bad lighting and serious dust, it's a good pic, but it's just...disappointing.

"Congrats!!!"
Congrats on Cathedral winning the NAR Lifestyle Award for Best Cover 2007 (Cover for New Age star David Helpling's album "Treasure")!



I checked out the album, nice music to daydream or write to, will have to purchase it (for the cover as well, no iTunes purchase here).

"Colon... "
Okay, my boss just came in my cube and asked why I had a picture of a colon as my wallpaper. Then said, Oh, it's a cave - now I see.

"Ryan and digitalblasphemy getting recognition"
Hey Ryan -- just to let you know, you've been mentioned over here in the Spotted Peccary / Deep Exile podcast in reference to the cover of David Helpling & Jon Jenkins disc 'Treasure'.

"cathedral"
This is my absolute favourite of everything you've done. I love the scale of the tiny figure, and I don't think there is a title better suited to this image.



I love all your work, and deciding to buy a membership last year was definitely a good choice. Your newest artwork goes up as my background when it comes out, but sooner or later I always come back to this one.



Keep up the incredible work!

"'Treasure' indeed!"
What an awesome image for the cover artwork for the new music CD from David Helpling and Jon Jenkins!



I LOVE it when my favorite artists team up in ways that I'd never thought of!



Ryan, thanks for working with David & Jon to get this incredible image on the CD cover of the upcoming 2007 release 'Treasure' from David & Jon.



*No* I'm not paid for this "endorsement"; I'm just an over-zealous fan...



"Treasure", the much anticipated disc from two of the excellent artists over at Spotted Peccary Music (Jon Jenkins and David Helping) will see release on 6/12/07! Be sure to swing by www.deepexile.com in the next two days to pre-order your signed copies! Your continued direct support of independent artists like Ryan, David, and Jon and their fine art we all enjoy is what makes more of it available. Without it, releases like this do not see the light of day. It's awesome that Ryan will get some exposure for this excellent release.



David's and Jon's discs can be ordered through the Spotted Peccary web site, www.spottedpeccary.com, and I would strongly encourage it! Spotted Peccary has helped me fill those pesky empty spaces on my CD shelf on more than one occasion.



Anyway, these guys have somehow managed to free some time to finish their long-standing collaborative effort, and have teamed up to dream up some of the most haunting and beautiful music I've heard in quite some time. I've heard excerpts from the new disc, and if you're a fan of great music, you'll not want to miss out on the new release, which clocks in at over 65 minutes! Check out 'Treasure' and order your copies when the site goes live on 5/23: www.deepexile.com

"This picture..."
was the first one I ever saw that Ryan made. It was on my friend's computer (he was just sampling it from the free gallery). I stood behind him and looked at it for about 5 straight minutes and couldn't take my eyes off of it. Something about the dimensions of it in relation to the person standing there..

I felt like a child who is just realizing there is a world out there that is vast beyond anything before conceieved. It was terrifying and thrilling and wonderous all at the same time. And I still get that feeling when I look at it.
