Clarissa Tweed, a gifted graphic artist who takes inspiration from Japanese Anime, has some of her most cherished creations from the year 2022. These characters have been her own creations and, she hopes, will one day be the basis for the story she has crafted for them.
Derek Skelton, a Staff Sergeant located at Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base, is a prolific country singer-songwriter that honed his skill set in church. His sound has a soulful infusion to it, and his musical influences vary from Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, and Gavin DeGraw.
Daryl Bowden, Jr, a Senior Airman stationed at Offutt AFB, is a multifaceted musician and vocalist. He is motivated by Charles Bradly and has drawn comparisons to artists such as John Legend and Stevie Wonder. He performs three original compositions.
Connor Remboldt, an SSgt based at Forbes Field ANGB, refers to himself as a metalsmith, visual artist, and designer. He is drawn to items that inspire him and then creates tactical artwork from them and digital work. Throughout his episode, he mentions a possum bone broach, his wife’s engagement ring, and a gold leaf decorated eggshell necklace as a few of his pieces.
Sgt Sarah Brice invites us to explore the world of cosplay with her. According to her, it is a form of “playing dress-up,” but on a larger scale. She even goes as far as to act as her own makeup artist, designer, director, and actor. There are no boundaries when it comes to re-creating a character or creating something new. Cosplaying is a way to express a story in a physical form, as your imagination is the only limitation. She finds joy in cosplay!
On June 8th, SSgt Derek Skelton and SrA Daryl Bowden Jr. will present three tunes to the public each. The story of these musicians and other artists will be accessible on the AF Live app and on numerous music streaming services.
The newest series is available for download through the AF Live application, which is available for both iOS and Android devices. Apple users can find the app here and Android users can access it here.
