This is spreading like wildfire, and the success is growing. We want to thank all
who have participated and contributed to this Social Enterprise. Your contributions
are appreciated and we want to congratulate the winners. Speaking of which, we
are proud to announce the successful launch of our first edition of “Outside,
Designed Conviction, The Magazine.” This new publication is our sister publication,
published by Designed Conviction Publications. In this magazine, we are sharing
stories of the incarcerated based on positive works in the arts and productive
projects, as well as featuring the top 10 contest winners.

We hope to contribute to changing the negative cultures our prison systems have fos-
tered, while at the same time breaking the stigma placed on those incarcerated and
felons in general. Those who keep doing the same things are going to keep getting the
same results. Those who do something different, are diligent, and follow through
with it will achieve different results.

We want to remind you that this is a positive platform promoting the works of
appropriate content. So if you decide to submit inappropriate material, your content
will not be published. Designed Conviction is about publishing inspiring and mea-
ningful works. Think about this when you put together your submission. Would your
mom be proud of you for this? Would your grandmother be proud of you?

We are striving to get your positive and productive works exposure and recognized.
We are quickly becoming the premier service for all your needs. We are aiming to
be able to be there to facilitate what you are unable to. This is a process of growth
and takes time. Please have patience and know that whatever it is that you need,
we are working diligently to make it happen. We aim to bridge the gap between
society and the incarcerated, making the transition easier, and we are working
towards ending mass incarceration.

Make sure to have your family and friends contact us. Hear from you soon!

Walk the Line by Designed Conviction
Featuring Caleb Twidwell

Our first single is available at most stores across the planet including JPAY!
With lyrics, 100% authentic, coming from the mind, heart, and soul of a man who is
currently serving a life without parole sentence, convicted 13 years ago when he was

20 years old.

So Cold by Designed Conviction
Featuring Caleb Twidwell

Some may say this is a sad song: “So Cold” by Designed Conviction featuring Caleb Twidwell.

However, on the contrary, when you get into the depth of this piece, you feel that rawness of
it from the very first note as a tune put straight through to hit you in the most profound ways.
As Josh at Greenlight Studios masterfully produced this record, the beauty of it is the journey
behind how this song made its way out of prison to the studio.

Copper Cop

The famous Copper Caddy was previously featured in our first edition
of Inside. Jerry Logan, the owner of the car and a Designed Conviction
sponsor, went on Bitch'n Rides to have the car built by Dave Kindig.
Let's take a look at what's new with the Copper Caddy and Jerry Logan.
Over the summer, Jerry and company traveled down to California and
entered the car in the prestigious Rodeo Drive Concours D' Elegance
car show. Out of the hundreds of cars in the show, there was a very
limited amount of awards given, and the Copper Caddy took home the
award for the most stylish custom build, which was presented by Tim


pper Copper!

This isn't all that is happening in Jerry's world. Jerry is in the process
of filming an internet TV show, which will be showing his cars and
also bringing guests. Designed Conviction has been working on a
song for Jerry. Together with a producer in Nashville, Designed Con-
viction is producing a song about his cars and the Copper Caddy.
Draw or paint your rendition of the Copper Caddy,
and if Jerry picks you as the winner, you will be fea-
tured on our next edition of Outside Designed
Conviction The Magazine. The same guidelines apply
to this as they do to the quarterly contest.



I’m the

Guitar Man

Buzzy Martin

Award-winning author, singer/songwriter, and entertainer, to name a few of the many talents Buzzy is
acclaimed with.

While interviewing Buzzy recently on Designed Conviction’s podcast “Life of a Lifer,” we got to know him
for who he is, a truly extraordinary man! Buzzy has dedicated his life to working with the incarcerated,
being a voice for the incarcerated, and an advocate for youth at risk, as well as prison reform.

Buzzy has been demonstrating how music has the power to change lives as he taught a music program to
inmates at San Quentin State Prison and incarcerated youth at juvenile hall. He shares with us his first-hand
account of the impacts that music has to transform a person in his award-winning book, “Don’t Shoot! I’m
the Guitar Man” which Prodigy Entertainment has made into a movie set to be released next year!

Like many who go Buzzy has had the honor of sharing the stage with members of

introduction to the world inside prison walls. What he finds,
learns, and shares is the common humanity that still exists in
spite of it all. As one who has spent his career in the criminal
justice system, I can vouch for its authenticity and also the novel
journey it took me on."

– Elliot Daum, Superior Court Judge

“While I have toured San Quentin, on several occasions, Martin’s
daily reports in “Don’t Shoot I’m The Guitar Man” bring to light
aspects of prison life of which he makes us more aware. I have
spent much of my career working with incarcerated juveniles and
share Buzzy’s wish that those youth at risk of adult criminality
get an accurate picture of what may lie ahead. Prison life is not
what delinquent youth may think it is and Martin is more that
“the guitar man”. He is the right messenger for those of us who
should be listening.”

– Robert G. Gillen, Chief Probation Officer Retired

“After twenty-seven years of working in San Quentin a person
finds that there is no longer the perspective or view that you
offer in your piece. I want to thank you for pulling a string, and
finding a note in me that I thought was busted and had long
gone dead.”

– Len Carl, Correctional Officer Retired

about breaking the stigma put on incarcerated individuals.


Some insight into


When addressing the matter of what constitutes an
“original” work and what infringes on someone else’s
copyrighted work, it is a complicated subject matter.

This is a guideline based on research we found to help give
you a better idea. A lot of folks are asking, what makes it
original? A common fable passed around is that if you take
an original work, change it 30%, that is now considered to be
original, which is entirely wrong.

Using any copyright image without the expressed consent of
the copyright holder is illegal.

However, there is good news here for the artist, as there are
loopholes. If the image is seen to be “transformative” or as
a parody/satire of the original work. In other words, if the
image is used for “artistic reasons”. The only problem with
that is art is often very subjective.

A common fable Ultimately, it will depend on how recognizable the copyrighted image is
passed around and how you are using it. If the copyright image is beyond recognition,
is that if you take then the copyright holder will have a challenging time proving that you’re
an original work, benefiting from their work.
change it 30%, that One type of exception is called a “transformative” use. What this means is
is now considered to that you change a copyrighted work to produce what would otherwise be
be original, which is a derivative work, except that the new work either changes the expression
entirely wrong. and meaning of the original work or the new work somehow creates new
information, aesthetics, insights, or understandings.

Keep in mind that most countries’ copyright is considered to expire 70 years after its creator has died.

Whenever possible, use your own sourced material. However, knowing that this can be difficult, Designed
Conviction can provide you reference material from the public domain. This service is $10 for 10 pictures
or $2 a picture. Customized reference photos of a specific subject matter will depend on the difficulty of
the photo to capture.

Copyright legally belongs to the artist from the moment of creation. Another myth floating around is that
you need to mail yourself copies, which couldn’t be more of a waste of time.

These are just a few helpful tips we found while researching copyright for you. We are not experts or giving
you legal advice. And if you want to be sure, use reference material that is original or that is published in
the public domain free for anybody to use.

Slipping, slipping, I'm losing my way,
It becomes harder with every waking day.
Think it though don't make mistakes,
one wrong move is all it takes.
Want to go home, got to do right,
at this point in time there is an end in sight.
Got to think clearly, I decide my fate,
keep my eyes open and don't show up late.
One day at a time, that's all I can do,
today, tomorrow, the day after too.
The day after that is when it got quiet,
it's the clam before the storm, known as a riot.
Shots fired on the ground is all I hear,
now I've lost it all, all that I hold dear.
Now I'm in the hold, secluded from the rest,
paying the price for passing the test.
So much time to think of where I went wrong,
sitting in this cell singing this song.
Got to do better next time around, or prepare
to be lonely with only my sound.

The concept of it is to give the world a look into the life of a lifer sharing the story of the founder of
Designed Conviction, but more than that, sharing the stories of many lifers across America. Showing
the human perspective, the other side of the coin, looking into how many have been doing so many

good things with their time and nobody ever hears about it.

Should there be redemption? Can people change? Well, we are also interviewing people that have
gone out and offered their perspectives on life sentences.
