More color added to the drawing!

It has been a while since the last post.

I never keep track of time.

All you must do is go with the flow and attempt your best to not disrupt the moment.

What I mean is.

Every moment something is happening to you.

How you react to that moment is your choice.

Have a weak will and give up.

Have a strong will and be ready for what is next.

Whatever the moment brings you, appreciate that moment.

Good or bad.

You need to “fail” as much as you need to “succeed.”

I am always creating art.

Lately, my flow of energy has been more focused on the art itself and not the website.

Have been busy with other things as well.

Trust me, I am arting for sure.

Art is the only thing keeping me sane in this insane world.

Before you think something is strange.

Think again.

Each individual has their own definition of “normal.”

Be your individual self.

Everything puzzles me all I can do is continue expanding my mind and creating art.

Never give up on yourself.

Keep on going…

Finished sketch. (took 4 days to finish!)

DSC_0820Here is the finished sketch.

At the beginning of each drawing, I get this “uncertainty” feeling.

I believe in myself, but I never know where to lay the pencil first.

Creating in any form “makes” you enter a completely different state of mind.

You have to think outside of the box and create things no one has ever created before.

When sketching this I entered a “flow state.” During these times I get this feeling as if my body is not here and I am living fully through my soul.

To finish this sketch it took a while, but I entered the flow state faster than normal.

Sometimes when I create 7 hours feels like 7 minutes.

Sometimes when I create 4 hours feels like 8 hours.

“Time” will mess with your mind playing games with you all the “time.”

There is no time besides the “time” you create within your reality.

“Time” creates many problems that do not need to be manifested into this world.

When creating art I meditate for a bit and this helps me lose the idea of “time.”

When you follow “times” rules. You become a slave to time.

I am not saying to be lazy and be a couch potato.

Have a schedule, but have your schedule be in a flow state. Enjoy what you are doing each day.

Each day holds an experience that will assist you in becoming your greatest version.

I believe quality is more important than quantity.

Do not rush everything in this life. Take your time and quality will show itself.

Manifest everything in a hurry and the quality might not show itself.

Use nothing but love when living this life.

When you live life in fear you will start regretting most of your actions and decisions.

Trust the voice within. (intuition.)

Live through the soul instead of the body.

Added more color! (Check it out)

dsc_0477Lately, I have had a weird schedule.

I apologize about the length of time in between posts.

Throughout this drawing, I have to keep reminding myself “one moment at a time Brandon.”

You have to appreciate the creative process. It is not always about the end result.

What matters the most is the “creative process.”

If you do not enjoy the adventure you get out of each piece you create. You should reconsider what you are creating.

Create with your soul and remember to use lots of love.

If the mind begins to create any false beliefs.

Remember anything is possible.

Put your heart/soul into what you are creating and anything can be created.

No one is stopping you from being you beside yourself.

Create art from your soul and not for the attention of people and their reaction.

Create to create.

Never create to impress.

If all you want to do is impress people you will lose yourself causing distress.

Be yourself instead of being someone else for more attention.

Quote #62

62

You live and then you die.

But then again, not.

You were alive for a moment.

Possibly alive for eternity and there is no death.

We are all infinite human beings.

Energy cannot be created or destroyed.

Instead only carried to another source.

Energy is infinite and will never leave your side.

Energy is your next door neighbor.

Balance and use your energy with the wisest intentions.

All we possess is the now.

What a confusing statement.

What does it mean to live.

Living this life is different for everyone.

We all live how we wish to live.

If we were to all live the same life.

We would all be a bunch of drones and robots.

Repeating the same things over and over each and every day.

Don’t live in the dreams of another’s life.

Instead, live within your dreams.

Don’t have people use you.

Instead be your greatest version you can be to thyself.

Look within and seek for wisdom.

There is no finish line in life.

Death is the end.

But death isn’t real.

I’m uncertain if I have a memory of death.

Or possibly I do from another life before this.

Some individuals remember memories in other lives they have lived.

People fear death.

In the end, death isn’t even real.

An illusion.

Of a thought.

I’m going to explain something that might not make a lot of sense.

The quote is about how “feeling” is misinterpreted.

You only feel a temporary emotion. Here and gone in a millisecond.

In the quote, I say “Death is nothing much but a thought and a feeling you can’t feel.”

Imagine “feeling” something you have never felt before.

A feeling is limited and hard to explain in words.

How do you know if you are feeling something?

Nothing is real but it is only as real as you imagine.

You have only died if you remember death itself.

Similar to how I said death isn’t real.

We can’t remember the moment we died because we are infinite beings.

Let’s say someone stabs you.

Already knowing what pain is.

You will know the feeling of being stabbed.

You would receive a sharp pain and blood would gush everywhere.

The thought of pain is in the brain. We all can imagine what being stabbed would feel like.

You feel pain, but maybe this feeling isn’t pain.

Similar to how I said you can’t feel death.

You can’t be certain of anything that you feel.

Past memories help us with the “now.”

We know of pain because we are told what pain is.

Imagine if you knew nothing and had to learn everything all over each day.

If so you wouldn’t know what pain is or what anything is.

We have been told everything our whole lives.

What is real.

What is not real.

If I was sending love to another.

I would assume the individual would feel some sort of love as well.

Love is a “feeling.”

Chemical reaction.

The world holds many relations.

There is something that relates to everything and all things.

Positive and negatives are quite easy to identify/ “feel.”

We don’t necessarily know the Ying from yang but we do know the Ying from yang.

Some people enjoy pain. Some people avoid love.

These two things are the opposite of what they should be.

The world is quite ironic.

isn’t it?

Hopefully, someone understood something of what I said.

The reason why I’m explaining all of this.

Everything involves energy and energy is a “feeling” of some sort.

Pain/Love is given a definition. As well as every other word.

We follow these definitions.

Is the actual definition false or full of truth

In theory, we don’t know anything.

I guess it is, however, you are “feeling.”

The quote is about how “feeling” is misinterpreted.

How do you know if the “feeling” we feel is correct? Anything is possible.

Feel as you wish to feel and don’t have someone tell you what you feel is “incorrect.”

Thyself knows evil from love.

No one knows anything.

Here I go contradicting myself of what I just said. Saying “No one knows anything.”

No one has died.

We are all one and come from the same source.

I believe energy is unable to be destroyed. Only passed on to another source.

Energy can’t be created. All of the energy that was here has been here since “day one.”

If you have died, then you have remembered dying.

No one has died. Risen from the dead and explained death itself.

We are all eternal and infinite beings.

I’m neither correct or incorrect. I could be on to something or be thinking similar to a madman.

I’m not here to prove anything to anyone or to say I’m correct.

Just here to be a voice for others.

I might sound crazy to some.

The sane are insane and the insane are sane.

In reality the insane are sane and the sane are insane.

Trying to stir up the thoughts.

I’m sure some won’t agree with me or understand what I’m saying.

That is okay, we are all on a different path in life.

Don’t judge so quickly.

The future is unpredictable.

Anything is possible.

We only “know” something because of the past.

Imagine if we lived each day with a new brain.

We would all have to relearn everything.

Possess the now and ignore living in the past.

Instead, use the past to create a stronger version of who you are.

Don’t compare yourself to anyone but thyself.

The past you isn’t you.

The now you is you.

We all have change hiding within our souls.

Do nothing but love and ignore fearing every moment of life.

But what is love?

That is for you to answer and not me.

There is no one definition for any word.

Just your perception.

Anything can be “incorrect” or “correct.”

It sums up to what you are “feeling” at the end.

I think about death every day.

This is my thoughts on death.

Life is the build-up of each moment and the final moment you experience holds the strongest energy.

In the end, all the little moments contributed to the final moment.

All the little amounts of energy combine to a large mass of energy.

Don’t confuse yourself with the end result or moment.

The now is more important than anything else.

Without the now you wouldn’t be here now, hahaha.

Death is only a moment away, appreciate what you have now.

When you are sleeping, technically you are dead.

Live in the present moment and learn from the past.

Just because you are alive doesn’t mean you are living.

Be your strongest version.

Namaste.

Almost done with the drawing.

DSC_0014

I took a picture of the drawing before I started coloring today. The drawing is close to being finished. I stayed up quite late last night.

Whenever I get the chance I stay up as late as I can. It’s during the night when I get the most creative energy.

The colors in this drawing are very challenging at the moment. I’m attempting my best to separate the shades and tones. I could just half attempt, but then it’s not as much fun.

Not sure if I’ll finish this tonight. I keep adding and fixing little things here and there. Really want the colors to pop so focusing a lot on the little details.

This drawing is taking longer than I thought. Just because it’s smaller doesn’t mean I’ll finish in a shorter time.

The experience is unknown and what is felt can’t be experienced until you attempt yourself. Don’t plan and rush things out. Just go at your own pace and you won’t make as many mistakes as you intended. It’s only when you rush that you’ll stumble and fall.

Now I begin coloring again. You have to forget time when you’re arting. The only thought is the art. One little shape at a time.

Color update (soon to be finished)

color1234

Here’s how far I’m at the moment, worked on this for a few hours last night. Late into the night, it seems that I have more of a spark of imagination at night. When I’m supposed to be sleeping and in dreamland, I feel the most creative.

If sleep wasn’t important I would sacrifice a lot of sleep for art time. But If I don’t sleep a certain amount of hours I feel sluggish all day. Not working to my full potential. It’s in the small, focused intense moments where you build yourself. Not all the sloppy fast moments when you’re trying to hurry and finish something. Similar to try to run in front of a person in a race.

We’re all moving at a different pace/ frequency, move at what pace is comfortable for you. To move very fast without thought most likely you’ll go down the wrong path and become frustrated. The race never ends. Remember to take time to breathe

Remember how I said, sometimes I get in the ‘Zone”. This is the best analogy for me to explain. The race, we’re all running at different paces. Don’t try to be first or last. Just become what is within you. The greatest you.

When drawing I “warm up” for the short race. A mental warm up. Coloring in the shapes is jogging for me. Find a pace to follow on, be steady and you’ll conquer and destroy. I reached the “artist high” or “runners high” when coloring this time again. It’s probably the best sensation I can ever feel. This feeling is a feeling of bliss. The pencils move without thought, they just do. In such concentration.

Whenever this happens, it feels as if the colored pencils, take control of me. My fascination with colors is so intense, I get this childlike feeling when I have colors in my hand. I always appreciate these moments with intense love and gratitude. Only if this could happen every time. Trying to train my body to do this more often, if you understand what I’m saying.

With the colors that have been added, what do you see in the picture revealed in front of your eyes? Remember folks, anything is possible. Don’t have the colors throw you off. The imagination is infinite and so are you.

 

Minor color update

23667165_1869611609761187_1564589047_n

Not the greatest update, but it’s something. Been quite busy this week. Sorry for the lame excuse, haha.

A few new colors added to the image to ponder the mind.

When making a color or deciding what color to use. It takes quite a long time, a slower process than sketching it.

Sketches are easier and go with a flow. When I sketch I’m going and going and sketching.

But when I color I’m pausing and looking at the drawing every few seconds. To figure out if the color I want to use is “correct” in my eyes. Or maybe to use a different color.

Didn’t spend as much time as I wanted to this week on the drawing, but I got a decent amount.

I want to enjoy the process or I don’t even feel like making art. To force it and make it a duty of some sort. That just makes no sense to me. Not every single moment of life I want to create, but I wish I could.

It’s in the moments where I have the most inspiration that I can’t draw, it always works like that with everything, hahaha.

When you want to do something you can’t. But when trying to do something you don’t even have the energy to attempt. It’s all sucked out of you.

If you learn how to mess and play around with your mind you can try your best to fight the resistance in a fun way. Don’t force anything or your true potential won’t shine. Just let it happen.

With the little update I have here, what do you see in the image?

Remember the answer is not given until the end, only little hints. Sorry if my hints are not the best, I try to give riddles and puns. Or tell you if I see what you see. It’s a weird way, but fun way for me to join the process.

It might be confusing to some at times. I act as if I’m not the artist and just a viewer myself.

Living in my everyday life, I don’t even feel like an artist or anything. I look in the mirror and just see a person standing there.

Just like everyone else. The same, all just a person. Living and breathing and that’s it, nothing else. Everyone is the same to me no matter the situation. We’re all one to me, no one is worth less than me or more. Just the same as everyone else. I look around and see a bunch of different version of “me”

Just had this thought at the moment of writing this, thought I would share it.

Thank you.

Quote #28

99

Don’t achieve to be the greatest or the best at something.

Only as best as you can perform.

If you’re better today than you were yesterday, that’s all that matters. Only compare things to yourself. If you compare your flaws and such to others you’ll never be happy. The past you isn’t you. The future you isn’t you. The Current you in this moment is you and nothing else. Learn from your mistakes and move on, don’t hold onto grudges.

I do this often with my art and tell myself it’s not the difference and do not compare, it’s thyself improvements that matter.

Over time you see the slow progress and change.

You’ll be surprised what a year of dedication and hard work can pay off.

Remember to not work yourself too hard or too less, be humble and patients. Things will fall into place.

Creating your reality. It takes time for all and different amounts. Just never give up on yourself.

Perfection is impossible, but you can always improve

The rose never gave up blooming or growing.

So neither should you.

I look at the world and I see endless roses of beauty. All humans have the potential to become anything they want. Anything you dream and wish for.

The rose dreamed of becoming a beautiful rose. So that means a person who’s in full control can achieve anything.

The flower is still and never moves, growing patiently. In the end, the outcome is beautiful. The full life is lived then the flower dies. Just how like us humans live.

We grow and then die. All a process, all growing at different speeds and lengths. Achieving different things.

All different, but looking the same in the end. All just one conscious. In the end all different kinds of beauty. Different flowers, and different beauties.

This life is for you to create and grow into whatever your heart desires. Just remember, never give up.

Resistance will pull you to the floor like quicksand but it’s your mission to fight and battle the resistance.

Goodluck to everyone on their journey of growing and blooming into the most beautiful rose/flower you can.
Don’t sweat things or rush them, remember to be patient and humble about all situations going on in front of you.

Good or bad, they all will create you into the flower you wish to be. Some grow without even knowing others are in control. We’re all different

Have fun creating your flower of life, don’t regret things and live in the moment. You’ll appreciate all the work and time at the end. It’s only when the person is rewarded that they keep going.

But when failing it’s easier to not even try at all. It’s easier to not even grow at all, when not thinking to grow.

When you start to think about your surroundings and what’s in it. You blossom with love within.

Feed your flower with love and not hatred.

Everyone have fun growing your flower!
