there are signs appearing around me consistently right now. slowly you see what you ask for beginning to take shape in the realm around you. this week was the first time i’ve gotten to step foot into the state of Florida. as a child i was told to never go East, which kind of petrified me from adventuring the literal direction East. it wasn’t until recently that i began planning for Portculture to begin hosting shows in Florida that a ton of other personal goals began aligning themselves. i started to wonder and think a little deeper about that.
my answers cannot be shared on this post.
i walked along the gulf-coast shoreline contemplating where i as a person in this moment of time is actually headed. i know that my main focus right now is developing my artwork and curating the art shows at Urban South Brewery with Portculture. i should just keep that on my plate and stop trying to be greedy huh?
i am becoming the all around renaissance man i have been growing to be. i will share my photography more confidently along side of my illustrations and paintings. if you’re following me you will certainly see over all creative expression from here on out. it’s all that really make sense to me anymore.
below is a commission i completed last week for a friend of mine. the dimensions are 11″ x 14″
you can view the full sized photo on my ELLO at www.ello.co/leeaux
if you want any artwork send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
thank you for supporting me, my artwork, and my journey as a creator.
lately i’ve been falling back into the swing of producing new works. i’ve been highly inspired by my environment and circumstances. i also have been inspired by what i’ve been exposing myself to on ELLO. i’m pretty into the idea of promoting my latest doodles and work on there so if you want to see my story unfold you can follow me on ello. i’m really into the idea of exploring the artistic nature of myself. delving into more expression.. like photography, illustrations, blogging, writing. it’s honestly something i need to nurture more.
given my circumstances, writing and sharing my story now is more important than ever.
i created this recently, as in last night- this piece is called “Fortune Tellers”
thank you for your time.
i don’t want people forgetting i’m an illustrator – more to come.
the objects that were gifted to me that help me: my cell phone, my laptop, my backpack.
there are a number of other objects that i’ve purchased which help me as well but not nearly as much. with those listed above i’m able to run the projects i have been working years on. i am thankful each day to be able to sign in and push our organization a bit further. it’s daily- i can’t even explain to you how these tools have shaped my reality so much. not just mine but have helped my peers too.
faith without works is death and it’s also said that actions speak louder than words.
i do this for Portculture. this is for the arts community that’s helped me to this very day.
my biggest dream is that we are all thriving from our craft. i know this kind of dream comes with consistent hard work. which is why i lug my backpack around almost everywhere i go.
i have a gift of art. what ever blessed me with this ability to see the beauty in nearly everything produced has been helping guide my existence as well. with my gift i shape the aesthetics of our organization, the plotting of a stage, the curation of an event, the placement of just about anything. what i know is that i am blessed.
hopefully i channel this energy well enough to make sure my mom doesn’t have to stress anymore. i’d like to make my family proud. i know that’s something i shouldn’t have to stress about as a human- but it’s pretty nice to be able to take care of those who have helped you. which is why when i eat i want everyone to eat.
we went to the movies today for the first time ever. it was pretty cool. i felt a humbling sense of normality- not having to rush, not able to take calls, just the nostalgic feeling of enjoying something with the friends i work with. i guess it’s a typical saturday spent with the pleasures of the earth.
i have art for sale on my webstore– it was featured on a global art website called Ello- you can put one on your wall at anytime.
stay sober and keep good people around you..
the best part about life right now is i have the pleasure of saying i work with my closest friends and we are building something so unique and impacting to the community around us. all with pure passion. the culture of the world is shifting and arts basically becoming a religion. that’s what it feels like to me. creativity is our savior. only true pioneers and innovative thinkers will make it. while we have many eyes on us, we’re still not stressed about how we are going to take it to the next level with @portculture – i have a lot going on right now and it’s never getting easier or lighting up,
in this life you get what you ask for, just be patient.
if you’re just now joining me here, i am making a switch the way i use the web. i’ve reprioritized the sites i use.
i’m starting with this page to keep my friend’s in the loop.
then my story is being shared on my ello – www.ello.co/leeaux
next is twitter
then after is instagram..
i’m making it a focus to use facebook less. the content i want to see isn’t really available anymore.
all the art is on ello.
my friend’s and i will change the culture around us.
we are the arts renaissance of the gulf-coast promoting a unifying experience on many levels.
thank you for your time, energy, and undying support for us and the artists we love.
