Finished the Sketch! (Color Added)

DSC_0458

Was too anxious to start coloring and forgot to take a picture of the full sketch with no color, hahahaha.

Usually, post the full drawing with no color.

This is the largest and most detailed drawing I have attempted in a while.

Challenging but fun.

Always ready for a challenge.

Never rush the coloring process.

It always takes longer to color the sketch than to sketch the sketch out.

You learn something new from each drawing.

Everything is valuable when arting.

Nothing is a waste.

Pay attention at all times and your art skills will improve gradually over time.

“Good” or “bad” it is all the same in the end.

Appreciate all moments.

More Added to the Sketch.

dsc_0432.jpg

Every drawing there is something new to learn.

There is a lot more added to this photo compared to the first update on the drawing.

When I was sketching this out.

I got a little carried away and entered the flow state.

Becoming “lost” within the art itself.

losing track of time.

Living fully in the moment through the soul.

I love when this happens.

This happens about 75% of the time when I am creating.

There are times where I look at the paper and nothing is created.

Depends on the energy.

Never force the art.

If you force your creations.

What was intended will not manifest itself into existence.

Create when the soul is hungry.

Started a New Drawing (Check it Out!)

DSC_0396

Started this drawing a while ago.

Having a lot of fun with the process of this drawing.

I apologize that I am posting this now.

Have been slacking on posts lately.

My schedule has been different recently.

Adjusting to a new schedule.

Will attempt to post more often.

I focus more on the art itself compared to the website and never focus on both with the same energy.

I go to bed during the day and I wake up at night.

Go to bed at around 1 pm and wake up at 9 pm.

Awake throughout the night.

My energy is the highest at night time.

Stay posted for updates on the drawing.

Pheonix “Rebirth”

We all fail.

We all learn.

Failing is a part of learning.

Learning is a part of failing.

Life consists of duality.

Negative and positive.

Positive and negative.

We need both positive and negative energies to have one energy.

We must have the “opposite” of the “original” to have what we have now.

You can always manifest opposite timelines than the timeline you are currently within.

Does this life decide you or do you decide this life?

Are you in control of your destiny or do others control your destiny?

Do you rise from your failures?

Or do you doubt yourself even more after you have “failed.”

As long as you “believe.”

Anything is possible.

It is quite difficult for me to “believe” anything.

How do we know that we know anything?

That is the real question

Through belief anything is possible.

The power within helps you become a greater you.

The symbol of the burning phoenix resembles that we can crash and burn and rise again from our failures.

Death and then a rebirth.

That does not give us an excuse to not “attempt” at all.

You must put in as much energy as you can that is all that matters. Hahaha.

Each moment we have the opportunity to “grow” we are technically “failing.

You must fail to learn, and you must learn to fail.

Next time you ” fail” don’t sweat it.

Appreciate your failures as much as you appreciate your accomplishments.

Without your failures, there would be no accomplishments.

Without your accomplishments, there would be no failures to look back on.

You can’t “improve” on yourself every moment.

Therefore you must “fail” yourself other moments.

In the end, all moments help you become your greatest version.

Hopefully, someone understands the duality in this piece of art.

To fall and then to rise with even more power/energy.

The meaning of this piece of art holds a little more value in my heart.

The colors are reds and oranges.

About 2 years ago I had a friend commit suicide.

His favorite colors were reds.

This piece of art is for you dude.

I am sorry about what has happened.

We cannot redo or reverse time.

All we possess is this very moment.

You must fail yourself and then rise from your failures.

Just because you fail does not mean you are a failure.

Failing is part of life.

Resists victimizing yourself.

Do not doubt yourself.

Remember to love yourself, everyone.

Without love, you might lead yourself down the “wrong” path.

I love you man.

I wish I could see you one last time.

I regret not “helping” you as much as I could have helped.

You should never blame yourself.

You can only help an individual to a certain extent.

Hope you can forgive me, man…

I send love to you man and I send love to all the other souls in this world.

They only realize your worth once you have passed away.

Through the power of love, the souls on this earth will unite.

Hello, everyone, it has been a while since the last update on the drawing.

I write these blog posts when I have extra “free time.”

Jahahaahaah. Ironically time is infinite, but we all have “schedules.”

You must do what you must do when you have the “time” to do what you wish to do.

Otherwise, all your “plans” will never manifest themselves into existence.

I look at the world and I question everything.

I question the answers to the answers.

Through my art, I find some form of “acceptance” or “answers.”

I have no idea what I am doing when I am creating.

Then again at the same time I “know” exactly what I’m doing.

In my perception art is never “incorrect” or “wrong.”

Art or expression is mostly “subjective.”

If you vibe with something that something will vibe back at you.

Through creation, I find my love and happiness.

I live through the internal world and mostly ignore the external world.

Then again, my art is Internal thoughts/ideas manifesting themselves into the external world onto canvas, paper, poetry, etc….

Pure magic in itself.

Manifesting nothing into something.

There are too many labels and distractions in this world today.

I feel as if more people are becoming their “greatest version.”

Ironically at the same time, more individuals are “losing” themselves in this world.

Remember to love yourself, everyone, otherwise, you will “loose” yourself within the chaos of this world.

First colors added to the sketch.

dsc_0298-e1558484654176.jpg

Added some color to the drawing.

I apologize that the image turned out dark and unfocused.

There are moments where I need to take a picture of the drawing and I feel the urge to create instead.

Battling between the thought of creating and attempting to take a picture

I Manifest a little anxiety.

When you force yourself to take a picture it is hard to take the best picture you can.

Even though I have had the camera for about a year now.

You learn new things every day.

Do not force each moment of this life.

All you have to do is go with “your” flow.

Do not follow the flow of others.

Create the reality you desire to be within.

Ignore the flow of others.

Otherwise, you are possibly aspiring to be someone that is not yourself.

Focus on yourself and remember to spread positive energy to others.

Do what is best for thyself.

Appreciate each moment as it passes.

Each moment could possibly be your last.

Smile more instead of manifesting all that negative energy.

Finished the drawing. (Check it out!)

The drawing has been finished for a while.

A few individuals guessed what this sketch could be in previous posts.

This drawing is different compared to most of the drawings I have been arting on.

This piece of art has more of a “meaning” behind it.

Yes, all pieces of art speak to you differently.

Even if it is quite difficult to manifest a perspective of what you are observing.

What you see within the art is what you see within yourself.

What you interpret the image into is a reflection of your soul at the moment.

Art lets you appreciate the moment for what it is.

The moment is all we possess.

Live a positive life over a negative life.

The choice is yours.

Manifest what you please.

About 60% finished with the sketch.

dsc_0289.jpg

About 60% of the drawing is complete in this photo.

This drawing is coming out nice and smoothly.

All you have to do is go with the flow and the flow will guide you to where you need to be headed.

There is no one destination.

Instead, there are infinite doors with infinite possibilities.

Remember to never give up on yourself in the hardest of times.

We have the negative moments in life to help us push through the emotional roller coaster in this life.

Practice how to withstand adversity.

We will all fall, but very few have the courage to stand back up on their two feet.

It is easier to give up and to not try at all.

Then to follow your passions, goals, and dreams.

If you live your life in fear you are ironically living within a false reality but only to dream of what “you could have been.”

Could, would and should.

These words are past tense.

Attempt to never use these words.

All we possess is this moment.

Focus on the moment or you will become lost in between all the other moments in life.

To never appreciate the moment fully for what the moment holds.

Magic.

Started a new drawing. (Check it out!)

The last drawing that was completed was “Jean Michel Basquiat.”

Took me about 2 and a half weeks to sketch and color.

If you missed the last drawing, go take a look.

To post all the updates including the final picture took about a month or so.

I often apologize about not being up to date with my posts.

It feels weird to be posting sketches I am currently not “arting” on.

The “real” world interferes with “creative minds.”

Depending on how my energy is.

I will post nothing for the longest time.

The art itself is more important than all the likes, followers, shares, and comments.

You can have millions of likes, followers, shares, and comments.

In the end, to never feel validated by other individuals.

All of that attention will have to keep manifesting itself otherwise you will feel “unloved.”

Remember to make time to love yourself.

If you forget to love yourself, you will forget how to love others.

Take some time to express your inner child instead of having your arms crossed with such a serious face.

Smile more instead of manifesting all of that negativity into your life.

Live that positive life.

Why so serious muahahahahahaah!!!!!!! (Joker’s voice)

Jean Michel Basquiat

DSC_0486

I would say the most challenging process of this drawing was the placement of color, hahahaahah.

I Love Basquiat’s hair.

He was a very unique “gifted” individual.

The reason why I put “gifted” in quotation marks.

I often hear artists or musicians be called “gifted” in interviews or compliments.

This has happened to me as well.

In saying another is gifted and yourself is not is quite a paradox.

We are all “gifted.”

It is just how you use your “gift” in this world.

Look within yourself and listen to that subconscious of yours.

Who are you deep within your soul?

Life is a gift.

Remember that.

I did not stress myself out as much on the process of this drawing compared to most.

The person in this drawing is Jean Michel Basquiat.

I am guessing if you “know” your art you will know who “Basquiat” is.

If you do not understand art history, it will be quite confusing to understand the meaning of Basquiat’s paintings.

The style of art Basquiat created was Neo-expressionism, Primitivism, and contemporary art.

Some will say his artwork is rubbish others will see the pure organic beauty in each brush stroke.

You can sit down and observe a single piece of art for an infinite amount of time.

There is always something to learn even though you think there is nothing to learn.

In the end, art is subjective and the viewer manifests an opinion/perception of each artwork they observe.

In my perception. What the “individual” sees within the art itself is a reflection of their soul at this moment.

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

– ” I am not a black artist, I am an artist.”

– “I wanted to be a star, not a gallery mascot.”

– “I cross out words so you will see them more; the fact that they are obscured makes you want to read them.”

– “I was a really lousy artist as a kid. Too abstract expressionist; or I’d draw a big ram’s head, really messy. I’d never win painting contests. I remember losing to a guy who did a perfect Spiderman.”

– “I don’t listen to what art critics say. I don’t know anybody who needs a critic to find out what art is.”

– “I like kids’ work more than work by real artists any day.”

– “There are about 30 words around you all the time, like “thread” or “exit.”

– “I want to make paintings that look as if they were made by a child.”

– “The black person is the protagonist in most of my paintings. I realized that I didn’t see many paintings with black people in them.”

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