Update on the drawing (50-60%)

DSC_0088

Hello everyone! 😀

The progress of this drawing is coming along quite well.

I would say I am having mass amounts of energy using these bright and vibrant colors.

Usually, the colors I use in my drawings show the emotions I am feeling within “this” moment of time.

Always attempting to keep a positive mindset.

You have to spread love instead of ignorance/hatred.

Emotions are colors if you think about it.

Colors are energy.

“They,” say each color represents a certain emotion of some sort.

I “believe” each color represents a certain emotion.

For example, the color “black” is darkness or “evil” I do not necessarily “believe” that.

Possibly you look at the color black and feel vibrant love and happiness.

In the end, I guess it is all perception of what you see in your eyes.

Colors are subjective.

The current drawing I am coloring.

Has “dark” colors and “vibrant/bright” colors.

I am thinking you will look at this drawing and feel uncomfortable because of the mass amount of energy.

Or you will get lost in the colors and it will be hard to focus on one section of the drawing at a time.

We are all different in this world.

We all have different “tastes.”

Everything in this world will not attract towards you.

That is up to you to find out what is attracted towards you.

Attempt to use your soul in every action/thought instead of using the flesh and ego thinking about yourself and no one else

I saw this photo and had to instantly save it.

I felt the energy within these words 110%.

I Remember being in school listening to everything everyone told me.

Whenever “I” had questions or did not agree with something.

I was told to be quiet or to not question.

To question life itself makes sense to me.

If you look at the picture you notice a “teacher” “teaching” multiple students.

“I” was that student in the back of the class.

Daydreaming about “unrelated” things that are not involved in “school” aka the system.

I felt like a prisoner of my own thoughts. In school, you can never express yourself to your fullest.

You are a “robot” that “agrees” and “follows” “commands” from the “leader” being the “teacher.”

As if you can only say yes and there is no “free-will.”

In school, there is no free will.

Originality is erased in “school.”

I could ramble on and on forever.

It has just been within the past few years I have “fully pursued” my creative journey.

In school, my art “skills” never had the chance to be fully expressed.

Now 2 plus years later here “I am.”

Becoming what I never “was.”

School never let me have the opportunity to become my greatest version.

I was always the “last person” to finish the tests/exams.

Usually getting the worst grade in the class and then defining myself by my grade.

Always getting help and being tutored.

“learning” things I never wanted to “learn.”

“Now” I know that I am “special”

I am here to be my original self.

Not to be competitive against other like-minded individuals similar to me.

I am here to be myself.

If I ever have children I will probably homeschool them.

Be your greatest version and have no one stop you from being your true self.

One last thing I would like to share.

“Question everything, including yourself. Do not accept what one tells you. Think for yourself and do not “accept” what “authority,” tells you.”

Crazy color scheme. (Check it out!)

dsc_0904.jpgThe energies for this drawing are all over the place.

The colors in this drawing are quite challenging.

Sometimes I will gaze at a shape for a few minutes debating what color to use.

When creating art you “know” what you are doing.

Then again, you have no idea what you are doing, but you tell others you “know” what you are doing.

Artists are very mysterious.

I always attempt to be mysterious, but exciting at the same time.

I feel every energy/emotion flow throughout my body.

0-100

You have to feel every emotion to express yourself through art.

You express yourself when the energy is vibrating within yourself.

The energy has to be released one way or another.

You might as well express yourself to release the energy in a “positive” way.

You get to that point where you have no idea how to explain yourself in words so you create an image instead.

If you think about it.

Images speak more than words do.

You can read a sentence and interpret the sentence into many different sentences.

With an image, it seems like there are more possibilities to interpret the image differently.

A single image can be interpreted into infinite stories or images

Everything is held within the eye of the beholder.

Everyone remember to be the “you” that is “you!”

Everyone have a beautiful day!

Started adding color to the drawing! (Check it out)

Having a lot of fun with the colors in this drawing.

This photo is from about 2 weeks ago.

The color scheme is a bit challenging.

Always pushing myself past my limits to increase my art skills.

You cannot challenge yourself with the same amount of energy every time.

If you never challenge yourself there will be no growth on thyself.

I apologize for the length of time between posts.

I have to experience everything at the moment or I overwhelm myself.

Never have a blog post planned they are all written and posted within the moment.

Last night, for example, I had high energies flowing throughout my body.

I was awake till 6 am last night and decided it was time for bed, hahaha.

In these moments I never stop to take a picture of the progress.

When the energy is at a high, time and space are forgotten.

All you do is create and create.

A feeling of infinite bliss expressing thyself through the soul.

I am an owl compared to most.

Sleeping when everyone is awake.

Awake when everyone is sleeping

True “artist” hours.

Shared video (#1)

10/1/2018

I happened to stumble upon this video this morning.

Ironically I felt just like the little boy in this video. I felt stupid and didn’t belong to other kids “similar” to me.

Overhearing people talk about me.

I love when the guy says.

“We all know art doesn’t pay the bill.”

Neither does being negative and bringing others down.

Pay your soul a visit and not the bank.

In the video, the lady turns her face with disgust. It seems to me she could possibly be an “artist” as well.

People hate the arts. Give it a chance my dudes.

A valuation someone gives you of yourself does not define you.

You yourself define who you are not another person……

People who define other people. DO they know a definition of themselves?

We live in a world of labels and numbers the soul is forgotten.

Give this video a watch for some daily inspiration! 😀

“If you feel pressure”

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.

Late 21st Birthday to me! -(02/01/1998)- “Special” -[Question and Answer]- Ask me anything you wish….

brandoining.jpg

I am an artist/writer/philosopher that lives in North America, in the United States.

I live in a small town of about 40,000 people.

Each person is similar to a ghost walking throughout the streets. You never really know each individual, but can observe and feel the presence of their energy. Each person having their own aura.

I have been creating art for the past two years now, in a serious way.

When people ask me “What do you do for a living.”

I always question what that means. What I “do for a living” really should not matter, should it?

I could be a bitter soul full of hatred and have all the money/ fame in this world. Your labels do not define who you are.

The energy you emit to the world, as well as the energy you feel within yourself, is who you are.

Labels do not change who you truly are.

Be your true self instead of hiding behind different masks.

Loyalty and trust are important when using your soul.

If I were to have all the money in the world I would still be who I am today.

I would help the people in need. Spread as much love around as I can.

My answer to this question.

“What do you do for a living.”

Well, I breathe, just like everyone else. I eat/ go to the bathroom. Oh and I sleep sometimes too.

My point is, I am nothing but human. I happen to make art for happiness and I am lucky enough that I can make it into a “career” in the future. The goal is a full-time “career”, well that is the dream.

This dream lies in my hands. The people help the dream happen including all the people reading this. It is all of the energy put towards the craft, every little amount of energy matters as much as the last amount of energy.

If it was not for each transcending moment, you would not be here at this very moment. Every second put into the art means that much more of an improvement. Even if I “fail” at a drawing. It is still an improvement.

I look at my art as play and not work, you do not get paid for something you enjoy. You get paid for something that you do not enjoy.

Then again you can contradict what I just said. I am thinking most will understand what I am trying to explain.

You only get paid for something you do not enjoy because then there is no need to be doing what you are doing if the only reason is for the money and nothing else.

If you get paid for something, what you are doing is nothing more than a duty.

No one pays the children to go have fun and run around outside.

We live in a society that is ego driven and we automatically think we have to be “rewarded” something for everything we do.

Imagine if I told you that everything you did you would receive nothing in return.

All you would receive is the gift of life each and every day.

Material and money should not control your life.

Live your life through your soul and love instead of being controlled by the illusions of life.

Health is wealth.

Attempt “working” on your health.

A positive mindset also comes with a healthy body.

It is as if no matter what we are never happy enough as a collective.

Everyone is always waiting for the next thing or waiting for more of something.

If you think about it there is nothing that is next.

You can’t have everything at the moment.

There is only the now.

All you must do is be and live in the moment.

Patience is at an all-time low for most individuals

I recommend becoming more patient.

Everything I do is out of my imagination and nothing else. It is all just for fun. All being an act of play at the end.

All of the money is extra. What I care most about is the energy people give me towards the artwork. The expressions as well, So I guess the new energy created and the love that the art creates in this world.

By being yourself you bring a whole new energy to this world.

There is only one of you.

Start being “yourself” now.

If each day you are manifesting more positive energy into your life.

You are on the path to becoming your greatest version.

We all have different energies to offer the universe.

Remember to not be so locked up and do not fear to share your state of mind in this world. Even if it hurts, in the end, it is better to be a “real” you than a “fake” you.

Here I sit typing up this blog, aging every second that passes by. To never grasp any moments that pass by but only to live in each moment the best I can.

The imagination lets you “remember” past times. Everything is your imagination, all of these mind games I tell you.

Looking into the past or imagining what the future holds for you can be scary or pleasurable. It is always the moments with the most energy that you never forget in your lifetime. The happiest and the saddest moments, usually these moments are imprinted on the brain.

It is the way you stand back and observe each moment, there is yin and yang in all situations. The individual just needs to see a deeper message or meaning. We need more of this yang. The greater energy out of the two. Positive energy will force out the negative energy. It feels as if more negative energy is flowing around the world at the moment.

It is on each individual to create each moment.

No one is perfect, I always attempt my best with my imagination. I do not always create the piece of art I manifested within my mind, but I am happy with what is created.

The next time you get a chance to become your greatest version learn how to manifest a brighter future.

It is best to live in the moment you physically are in, at this very moment and no other moment. If you live in a different moment of time then your mind is not even in the “now.”

It is hard to appreciate what you see at this very moment when you are not living in this very moment. Destroying the purpose of life in a way.

All of this is very ironic.

Stop living in regret, choose to live in the “now.”

To dwell on past moments is a bad idea. Nothing can be fixed or changed, just reflected upon.

Yes, this is a picture of me, I never post pictures of myself.

This photo was from about a year ago.

I am lazy and do not want to take a current photo, hahaah.

The only difference Is I have more of a beard and a lot more hair. My hair is getting quite long.

Now here I am at this very moment typing this. If it was not for the moment in my mind, that I decided I wanted to go full out on this “art’ thing. I would not be here at this very moment typing this. It all would be nothing but a “dream.”

Here I am happier than I was last year, many positive and negative situations occur to everyone within their lifetime.

I do not wish to speak of myself, I would have no idea what to tell you. I never really have anything to say, unless I am talked to or if people ask me things.

Yes, I do talk a lot but most of the time to myself. As we all do, I probably talk to myself more often than most do, hahahaha.

With time and experience, the universe will create my future, all I have to do is play with the universe and not give up. Listen for the signs when they are there and follow through.

Remember to not ignore the intuition, heart, and soul. The soul, heart, and intuition guide you throughout your life.

Trust the energy you are feeling at the moment. Each moment creates the next moment. Pay attention to the energy and do not ignore the energies you feel in your presence.

“Chaotic Shapes” aka “Brandon Knoll” is signing off, ask me anything you please. It can be something as simple as 1, 2, 3. Or possibly a question as complex as the creation of this universe. I do not know the literal answer, hahaha. I just mean a question that is very complex and mysterious. Love to have conversations with people who are interested in the same thought patterns as me.

I am ready for all people and types of questions, do not be too scared to ask anything.

Nothing is too weird/strange or abnormal for me. I accept it all, hahaha.

I am no greater than you, all of us are equal. All I happen to do is create some art and besides that, I am a happy and a humble soul.

All I wish for is peace, love, and positivity to vibrate throughout each soul.

Ask any question as you please.

Go………

Added more to the drawing. (50-60% finished)

DSC_0727

I would say about fifty to sixty percent of the drawing is done in this picture.

This sketch is going quite smoothly.

The coloring always takes longer than the sketch of the picture.

Deciding the color takes more energy out of me than deciding the shapes.

Not sure how to explain this.

Thinking other individuals will relate to me.

Deciding the color is similar to a life or death situation.

The energy is at a high when using colors.

The smartest thing to do is to not overwhelm yourself.

Let everything happen and everything will come to you.

Do not tense up and if you feel frustrated. I recommend taking a 10-minute break or walking away for a moment.

Never force your art otherwise the art will be work instead of play.

New drawing! (Check it out!)

DSC_0509

Started this drawing a while ago.

Took a picture of the drawing multiple hours in.

I would say this is about 10-20% finished.

At the beginning of each drawing, you have to trust yourself.

Never over think anything.

Let the mind be free and the art will create itself.

If you force the process of the art your true self will not show through your art.

If you create art for the purpose of not creating.

You will create something you did not intend to create.

Use your soul when creating instead of forcing everything.

You do not have to always listen to others.

Let others say what they wish to say.

In the end, follow your intuition.

Everyone have a great day!

Salvador Dali

DSC_0697

Throughout the process of this drawing, I was attempting to push myself past my limit of comfort.

My main focus was to make everything as abstract as possible.

The colors were a little mind-boggling to figure out, but I am up for any challenge.

Each piece should challenge you more than the last work of art.

Somehow I end up surprising myself each and every piece of art.

Sometimes I have no idea how I create what I create.

Everything happens within the moment of the moment.

Time and space are forgotten when creating art.

Through art, the soul is set free.

You forget you even have a body.

There are no rules in art.

Create as the soul wishes.

Art is the greatest way to teach yourself about life.

Through art, you learn patience and learn how to love.

You appreciate the moment more than ever.

The process of art is similar to the process of life.

Be diligent with everything you do.

A piece of art could take you a lifetime to “complete.”

Technically no piece of art is finished.

You just have to stop yourself from adding more to the piece.

Life is a never ending journey.

The moments in between life create the life we are living now.

Art is a process of small steps put together, creating “one whole moment.”

Art shows you the “answers” to life.

Through art, you nurture the soul.

Salvador Dali is an example of someone who is their true authentic self.

He was quite a “crazy man.”

Then again all “artists” are crazy.

When you step outside of the box and question yourself as well as your surroundings.

Then you realize everything makes sense, but nothing makes sense at the same time.

Life is just a hallucination perceived differently by each person.

The “artist” expresses themselves through their own reality.

Attempting their best to explain their thoughts that make them question everything.

To accept everything for how it is.

Is quite hard for the “free minded” person.

We are all “artists” most just forget to be themselves.

“Their true selves.”

Think freely instead of being told what to think.

No one is perfect in this world.

All we can do is become our greatest versions.

Each day holds infinite possibilities.

If you believe in yourself anything is possible.

Do not give up even when you feel weak.

It is the challenges and storms in life that help you become your greatest version

The negatives help you become your greatest version.

Showing you what is hidden behind the truth of reality.

The positive moments remind you how beautiful life is.

We need both the positives and negatives to live this life.

Everything is only seen as perceived.

Remember to keep on creating and to be your true self.

Vibe at your own frequency.

Do not let others drain you of your energy.

Be the light within the darkness.

Anything is possible if you believe within yourself.

Here are a few quotes I would like to share by Salvador Dali. I relate to what he says within each quote. I am sure many other individuals will as well.

-Mistakes are almost always of a sacred nature. Never try to correct them. On the contrary: rationalize them, understand them thoroughly. After that, it will be possible for you to sublimate them.

“What is important is to spread confusion, not eliminate it.”

-There is only one difference between a madman and me. The madman thinks he is sane. I know I am mad

-“I believe that the moment is near when
by a procedure of active paranoiac thought, it will be possible to systematize confusion and contribute to the total discrediting of the world of reality.”

“You have to systematically create confusion, it sets creativity free. Everything that is contradictory creates life”

-Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.

-“It is not necessary for the public to know whether I am joking or whether I am serious, just as it is not necessary for me to know it myself.”

-“A true artist is not one who is inspired, but one who inspires others.”

-“The difference between false memories and true ones is the same as for jewels: it is always the false ones that look the most real, the most brilliant.”

There are many more quotes I could post that I can relate to. I will stop before I get too carried away.

Much love to all!
