the close up illustrations are on my instagram here you can find your sign and i will mail you a print!
this was hard work, im so glad to be done with that. i wonder what will inspire me next!
i’m really happy right now, yesterday i received my order of artist tees.
the first one in the series is “the harbinger” — if you would like to buy one, they are for sale at $30.00 USD. the quality is really nice, they are soft, and there is a lot of time and energy put into them.
i’m going to run to acquire groceries right now, hello world.
its been a very interesting and productive relocation to New Orleans, Louisiana. the cosmos seem to have set me here for the right reason, if there is even one. i chose to believe there is, ive met a ton of creative and determined individuals here since late March.
its a full moon.. or nearing, the world has been responding to my determination as an artist. new doors have opened, old doors have closed. i even ended up with an amazing team for portculture. it’s breathtaking how we ended up together.
it’s amazing what the power of love can do.
ive become such a new person from this life experience. i would never take it for granted.
im eating donuts and anticipating my new tee shirts this week, really proud of myself. i pulled it off… my art is going to take me across the world.
i am not sure what’s next…
i miss playing yugioh with my friends.
there are a few things i miss but that’s okay.. if you’re reading this before 11 AM July 18th you get to see the start of a new series
im going to bed after eating this last powdered donut.
After Clams Casino shared my artwork I began a series of rad illustrations,
im going to be creating limited edition shirts of each one of these, these will be my first artists shirts made just strictly for the fact that i make art and that i wanted to add a new dimension to my work.. the first will be “the harbinger”
the support lately is almost unbelievable, it really brings me close to tears… i don’t think people understand how thankful i really am..
im creating to survive and to eat and im just trying my best to make it and yes im getting extremely better at what i do but im aiming to be too good for some of the places and people that didn’t really seem to care or value me… that hurts to give your all and then just have your gift be taken for granted or abused..
that’s how i kind of ended up here, but I’m not dwelling on the past I’m focused on the future and becoming one of the greatest artists to walk the earth.
Garrett Russell is one of the reasons why im able to do this, he’s given me hope and has always supported me and my art… i couldn’t thank him enough for being a loving human being… thank you for everything…
some people get through life working a regular job day to day, at the hands of another individual your schedule is crafted for you; my life is very much different; i work full time by turning my passion into my career… i use this blog to act as a looking glass into my current story; a direct view into my eyes and mind so be very aware that nothing is sugar coated or filtered. this is my soap box to explain myself as an individual and as an artist, as LEEAUX
i have been drawing my entire life basically. since i was young ive been very interested into the arts.
over a period of time i slowly let this passion consume me and mold me.
i was promoting for other artists/musical acts and venues off and on,
but art is really the main thing ive cared about…
more of this story posted soon;
if you are reading this, it means a bunch to me for i have recently started a new chapter of life.. i have been battling some internal issues and outside forces. i have been struggling with obtaining peace and inspiration from an area that seemingly has been drifting far from me.
i have been blessed by some friends recently. whom i have always sincerely held close to me. they helped get me on track and into an environment that appreciates the art craft like no other. it meant more to them than it did me to make it here and that’s what you can call genuine appreciation. this is also a huge thank you from everyone who has invested time or money into my artwork and creations. you are supporting an artist and you will witness the results on this site..
i don’t want to really disclose all of my personal endeavors as I used to, im going to watch this build from the ground up. focus will be my best friend. daily rituals that will build a better tomorrow for myself..
it’s really not easy. but i would never trade this for anything. living a normal life, i couldn’t imagine it… mentally i don’t think i could do it. making and selling art is seriously all i have ever wanted to do..
it’s a great life lesson and will only make me stronger.
anything artistic and fun though, is about to get ten times more exciting.. i have a comrade here who is going to be manifesting great things with the #thirdcoast #artcvlt along side me. we have been planning on full focus of arts. i exposed an entire new world to him.
hello readers please meet Logan
today we made prints. first time for Logan, it was such an honor to help him do this and develope a system to manage his art and profit from his work.
now this is history..
