Below is a sample comic from sequential narrative class in college. It was my first attempt at a four page comic.  However, now I’m a little more experienced; which brings me to my next question.  Would you( the followers, visitors, and readers) be interested in a web comic?  I have a story that’s been 6 years in development.  It’s about the children I mentioned in an early post.  Feel free to like or comment.  Any suggestion would be helpful. Again thank you.

In Stone…

collection 2017_0001

Morning/good evening everyone.  This is special post, but I want to start off by saying I’m a super private person. So with that being said, this drawing is a really big deal to me. This piece, I started working on it a few weeks before my girlfriend’s birthday and I’m still working on it today( well in between projects, work, and commissions). When I do work on it, I add a stone to represent days we share together(good or bad). The textures represents the condition of those days or moments. But my point is, love is a process and a continuous one. It can’t be rushed and you both have to be willing to learn and grow together. You have to be selfless, honest, and respectful. If you can’t do that, then there’s no need to waste your time. Love is a complex thing, with a simple formula. The problem is, we as people focus too much on the “I” and not enough on “we”. Anyways, that’s my opinion. Take it for what you will. I love my girlfriend and I thank her for being an inspiration 💜.  Thing have been tough for me personally.  I have a goal…I want to be an artist that makes a difference.  But when life place obstacles after obstacles in your path, it becomes a test of wit and perseverance. There were times I felt like I can’t, but she was there to give me that extra push.  I’m still on that path today.  I can’t quit.  If you have a goal, stick with it.  May sound rather cliché, but it’s the truth.  You have to keep going.

Some more art…

Hello, followers, readers, and visitors.  A couple days ago I posted a post discussing T Shirts I designed for children.  It’s officially up on the site.  There’s a count down clock for when it releases.  Here is the art featured on it below with the link.  Again thank you for visiting and reading.

My new project inspired by children…

Hey.  First of all I want to wish all the mothers and fathers who have taken on mother roles a Happy Mother’s Day.  You all are awesome!  Second I want to update everyone on my recent project.  I’m working on a series inspired by children.  It’s been six years in the making and I’m finally making moves to get it out to the world.  Although it’s going to take time, I’m determined to do it.  That’s the key being persistent and determined.  As a way to get some footing, I’ve made Tshirt designs for children only.  I must say, honestly I don’t expect them to sale much because my idea is still relatively new.  So not too many people know about it.  I just want my art on a preomtional platform. I will post the link down below.  However, if you do buy one for your child or just out of support, thank you.  Also, thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.

Undiscovered…

IMG_20141117_134631
There’s a lot of undiscoverd artists out there including myself.  It’s tough..it’s tough to keep going and to find that balance.  With so much going on, sometimes it’s difficult to hang on to that passion and tell your story.  Having said that, if you are an artist who wants to be heard then feel free to share your work here on my blog.  Tell your story.

Recent work…

2017
Alright.  I promised updates and here is a collage of my more recent work.  It’s a mix of some pencil and ink work.  Each drawing has it’s own story that I will share later.  However, these are just a few of many more to come.  I’m going to add a link to my instagram at the bottom of this post.  If you’re interested then feel free to check it out or just drop by to say “hello”.  But until then, thank you for visiting my blog.

Mental Health Month

So some places and sites such as Tumblr, are bringing awarenss to mental health month.  I for one think that this is great, because mental health is a serious issue that plague many people.  I feel the most common form of it depression.  I personally know people who suffer from depression and it’s a scary thing to see someone you care about suffering.   A few years ago I had a friend that I cared about deeply.  She was suppose to call me that day, but she didn’t.  The next day, I was informed that she had tried to overdose on sleeping pills.  She had her stomach pumped and was in the hospital in stable condition. She recoverd, but still that was a scary situation. Later that year, she visited a doctor that diagnosed her with bipolar disorder.  To be truthful, I knew it because of situation were shared prior.  I researched the symptoms.  With being 20 years old at the time, I wish I had approached the situation a little different maybe.  But how could you tell your friend that she’s bipolar?  I confessed this to her and even showed her my research.  To her surprise, she asked why did I stay by her side all this time, and I told her because I loved her.  That turned out to be what she needed to hear I guess.  She needed to know that someone cared about her.  Now this is true story based my personal life and I’m usually a rather private person.  So if you or you know anyone suffering from any mental health issues, reach out to them or reach out in general and seek help.   Remember, there are good people out there.
