so much has been taking place lately, some memories i don’t want to forget.
on top of some twitter interactions and an occasional facebook post from my art page. i think the signs in my life now are pointing to more focus on my art career, and that requires real time catering (i can’t scroll through my news feed for too long). well outside of the internet-in a way it kind of feels like i have been living on a cloud- floating in a void and looking at my environment as a seamless play. all the worlds a stage right?
i have been neglecting a few of my earthly responsibilities. i need to clean some laundry, probably pick back up on my healthy diet, maybe even shower more. being a human sometimes can be so high maintenance.
mainly my attention has been on mastering my art. i want to be considered a pen master. one of the greatest illustrators of the 21st century. i’m finally glad that there is love being shown to my instagram page. Thanks Ugly God.
my life has been on a huge cycle for six months in New Orleans. it consisted of: networking daily, make art daily, survive, meet people, build relationships, make art. from this i have acquired a ton of new friends and family. it’s been a beautiful experience. i wouldn’t trade it for anything.
having pals to ride bikes with, go to dope pizza places, laugh together, event promotions, and DIY art fairs- to having family who create constantly in pockets of culture, making music and mining their name into gold. it’s very dream like and inspirational to continue being surrounded by creatives who have similar goals.
i have been working on myself. it’s been a once in a life time learning experience honestly, truly. september started and i tried to push cvlt aesthetics more, but i was hit with the burden of phone malfunctions, health, some dismantling relationships, and prior event arrangements. that kept me very busy. now that October is almost half way done, i’ll blink and be in 2017 before too long. i’ll be 26, i’ll blink and it’ll be October again, then again it’ll be 2018.
ha, spinning on this rock gets kind of weird sometimes. im in america and theres a growing society that is being tricked into not liking one another. i can’t do much about that. i’m lucky to have what i have now and to have been surrounded by some amazing people and also not so amazing people.
i just want to see the world and have my artwork shared with everyone in my path.
journal entry – hey, i’m probably going to do this whole only contact through email thing for a while, it’s really fun actually: email@example.com
i’m going to publish a newsletter soon, subscribe now for updates.
i realize now for a majority of my life, since i was 18, i have been persistently off and on making creative projects. i have been evolving over time as well with the product and image of what i create. i get compliments side by side with my visual art that my overall aesthetic is unique and captivating. that really means a lot to me, i work super hard on it haha, it’s actually come naturally now. it’s apart of me. it’s how my eye sees everything now and i can dig it.
i really have been focusing in on the vibe for cvltaesthetics more lately, it’s been my most passionate project yet. i’m fighting for it to survive. i said it earlier today that “i want it to be more than just an idea, i want it to be a lasting brand and a society.”
that’s apart of why i partnered with Gabriel on this, slowly i have been adding friends who want to watch it become something greater. next week we should be seeing something really new, and exclusive, i can’t say what it is.
i lost my flash drive earlier this week and thought “well that’s it, got to start over” then Megan of the Loyola campus police emailed me on my personal site saying “hey come check this out, we got your flash drive here”– who ever turned it in, please find me somehow.
one thing i enjoy about New Orleans is the access to foods you might have never had the chance to eat before. since i moved here in late March it’s just been a mouthful of new experiences.. it’s a rush meeting so many people will all similar ideas. it’s really great. it’s familiar.
i recently began adding my illustrations to seasonal artist shirts, i made a collection called Armageddon recently and it’s been really successful. i am way thankful for the support.
i will have a ton of dates for the market setups where you can grab my art coming up soon if you are a collector or just someone interested in my work and seeing it in real life.
last night my friend Pat and his girlfriend surprised me with tickets to see Deft-Ones. they are a Deftones tribute band from Houston Tx. i had a really great time, head banging all night to songs i never thought i would see performed. soon i will see Deftones. one day.
i want to make it a point to do awesome things everyday as soon as i get my bike fixed and document everything.
“create and be the beacon of love and light”
hey so life has been very eventful and im loving it. i have to say im sorry if i have been slow to respond or forgot to get back in touch with you, im starting to make lists to be sure to organize my time properly now that this is the 25th cycle of my life on earth,
i have met so many beautiful people during this time i would not trade it for a thing, i am actually really honored to have gotten to meet so many people that i have, it’s so surreal and it’s a blessing to call this life,
im literally floating in a head space of creativity. my entire life is centered around art, my friend groups all consist of artists, life reminds me to be thankful.
i am filled with blissful tears as i think back on the hundreds of people i have met and gotten to share a story with, you have given this life purpose.
