Creative Challenges

Today I've prepped a few canvas's  with acrylic paint as the base.  I figured I'd do a series of 6 canvas.  The 7th is a piece going to a dear friend and fellow artist SBP.   He threw me a canvas a few weeks back and asked for Bart-Art.  I really loved the illustration and sticker of Bart I did last year and got a lot of positive feedback so I def was up for the challenge!

I also admire his ambition and dedication to art and really got inspired by him.  I haven't been living up to my potential as an artist and really want to turn things around for myself.  There is nothing more unfortunate then wasted talent, eh? 

I don't want to look back when I'm at my death bed and wallow over "shoulda, coulda, woulda's".  I'm ready to forgive myself for the years of neglect and begin my new life as an full-time artist.

Starting with 15 days can help push me towards changing my lifestyle and getting my mind wired to work better and more effectively. Practice makes perfect and with the time spent in practice I'll pick up my speed and confidence again.

The layout for a month will be 15 days of studio sessions and 15 days of commercial development and building a reputable name for myself!

There is no other way to do this besides with my own investments; time and money.  Join me along this journey of 15 day challenges and help me stay focused and committed to not wasting talents away!!

Wish me luck!!!


Well Well Well....

Yes I am still around!  Buzzing like a bee ever since I wrote last just before my big birthday bash in NOLA.  Wow that was forever ago!! By the way, that trip was priceless and a total dream!  From start to finish a complete blast off!   

Then came Summer....and Summer has come and gone so quickly.  Too quickly.  My watches came in, had a few events, sold new work, few trips out of town....and here I am, writing to try and slow down a few steps and reorganize the mission here. 

The journey is overwhelming!  No time for blogging it seems.  Well at least in the past few months I couldn't sit myself down to do it.  Perhaps I did have time, but considering writing isn't my thing, I must say it has been quite hard getting it done.   Maybe this should be more of a picture blog or a vlog.  Few experts written here and there but for the most part i'll provide you with real action and action shots.  I've got tons of photo's I haven't shared and would love to.  Stay tuned if you'd like to see where i've been and what I've been up to.

A lot of good projects on the way!  The process is the best part you know, digging deep for awhile then resurfacing and looking around at the things you've built.  Pass or fail you just must keep on pushing.

This artist journey is full of life and ever changing.   Project to project, scene to scene.  I juggle this dream alongside the realities of everyday struggle.  Whats to come in the future? Stay tuned!

Talk to you soon again
