louisiana holiday transit. i finally am getting to spend a little more time in my grassroots of a city, Shreveport. this is where i started trying to become involved in the arts scene. i started selling my art originals in night clubs and other social outings. that all began near the end of 2013. my friend introduced me to the concept you can make money from being good at your artwork. that’s been something i’ve made become my only source of income for four years. i have learn a lot about myself and my value.
2018 is going to bring a lot of new things into my life, career, thinking patterns.
i’m looking to teach my friends and anyone who’s interested in learning some of what guided me to success. my colleague @jwes115 was consulting me and we combined our forces to begin an agency in late 2015. i’m looking to see how we evolve this year,
i want to impact the arts community in a new way that empowers the artist and creates new opportunity for success.
nothing is really too impossible or far out our reach.
let your thoughts become your reality.
my life is continuously evolving into a new form each day. for one, i have not been too observant of the days, two days mold into my single day now. the new business day is 48 hours. here’s to consistently pushing towards your goals. i give back to the creative community by networking friends with one another based on their craft. we host art shows together and display support through sharing works to our multiple timelines.
this mix of passion, philanthropy, and artisan curator/cult leader drive has shaped a majority of my life. since i was 18 this is pretty much all i know. the arts.
everyday i have been making conscious steps to enhancing my life for improvement. with that i have learned so many qualities of my self that have been attached to the definition of this vessel. these behaviors that define me. upon hitting a new mental understanding since “enlightenment” i have been consciously redefining how my character / person / vessel is perceived.
this was not at all the most pleasant experience. my mind is so far gone from this stream i began tapping into.
i shouldn’t feel bad for relentlessly pursuing pushing my art career to heights that merit respect. i should have been doing this at an earlier age -but i probably would have been riddled with foolishness since growing up, my angst ruled my emotions– i probably would not deserve it, but i know for a fact now the experience should be given a type of credibility if anything. most humans would have given up in this pursuit for mastery of your art. some people have expansive dreams and have yet began following them. it’s not easy- it’s not spelled out- the most you can do is learn from people who are taking the initiative to act. your mind shapes so much of your reality.
there’s so much more happening behind the scenes for me, i am evolving into something entirely new.
single days are the collection of 48 hours for me now. i have been drawing consistently while maintaining many other aspects of my career and balancing a social life. it’s basically all merged into one. everything is golden in moderation. if you aim to keep focused then you will eventually accomplish a lot.
become aware of your “time” and how you chose to spend it. that might probably be the greatest tip i would give out to anyone seeking fulfillment in a non-traditional life-style.
in New Orleans to be a street artist you must first be harassed and hazed by police officers who’s job it is to prevent culture- apparently. good thing for me im apart of a group who work to fight for artists to defend our art and the culture around us. if you don’t do or say anything about it, it will keep happening.
this is not okay and i am mad as hell about it,
in other news i made some very rare prints that im EXCITED about.
including some rare misprints.
