it’s with heavy thought and deep contemplation that i have decided to take on a daily drawing challenge. this took a lot of thought and preparation. mentally this challenge is something i never expected to actually take on from fear of failure. ultimately i am aware that it’s through my own dedication and passion that this could even happen. i had to overcome a lot of life lessons and vices. i had to put a lot on the back burner and learn how to tell others “no”. i had to get over partying, making excuses, and dividing my attention improperly. i think that this is a perfect time to begin this project, hopefully something great comes from this journey- the evolution is something i am excited to witness.
i had to really change gears on what i wanted to funnel my attention into and my art is probably the greatest thing i could do it with. it’s best to just go ahead and try. it doesn’t hurt to try. this phrase seems to be following me a lot lately.
again, thank you all for the unending support and love being given to me over the years. i am filled with excitement to fall in love with my gift yet again. if there is a certain piece you would like a print of, please email me at email@example.com – or inbox me here.
best – leeaux
i owe my success to the beloved friends who come into my life to lift my spirits when everything seems…overwhelming. after moving to New Orleans my life drastically changed for the better.realistically i needed to enter a larger city for more eyes to view my art to take me further. i didn’t want to go too far from Louisiana just yet-it will always be home for me. so here i am, thankful to even having made it this far.
this is Gavin, this is before we went to this place called The Republic. i feel like i harassed the marketing guy (Chris) to check out my website- mainly because he said he would, so i was just verifying that he would by asking him twice. i just really never believe anyone who i meet in a club setting that says they will do something without even getting any contact information.
that’s like saying i will be right back to your merch table to get something,
anyway- my phone isn’t broken anymore but my service will be off tomorrow.
life is always bittersweet and for this i am grateful.
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.
the beautiful part of exploring the land of New Orleans is that so many come for arts, many come for culture, and everyone comes for a story.
what’s been happening lately is that i begin taking time asking what others find in art and what pulls them in and documenting why connection leads to purchasing.
this is Cory,
Cory was special. he made it so that our paths would cross again, he wanted to claim an original piece from me. it doesn’t happen too often i let go an original.
meet Yvonne, another philanthropist and Corys girlfriend.
together they spoiled me Monday- we shared coffee and beignets at City Park, ”twas a very marvelous meeting
we discussed our appreciation for art and the phenomenon of why we collect it. Yvonne said the joy of being able to sit back and admire the work as a time capsule is one of her reasons to collect art.
the fresh sense of adventure each day. strengthening our artistic skill in the french quarter of louisiana.
growing up id make my casual adventures here, and slowly it consumed me. it’s good to always make your way to the core of inspiration,
near the end of february it was a bit tough, having friends to be lost with helped.
they are okay sometimes.
