Added color to the new drawing!

DSC_0048

Have been quite busy the past week.

Working every day instead of arting.

Taking care of the physical and mental mind.

Took a picture of the drawing a while ago.

I apologize for the random posts.

I post when I get the chance to.

I know time is infinite and we have time when we make room for time.

Mental and physical health is more important than anything.

People forget about the internal and only wrap their mind around the external.

In my mind health is wealth.

Wealth is not important.

Riches do not define you.

How rich your heart and soul are defines you more than ever.

Take care of yourself, everyone.

Will be posting updates in the near future.

Finished the drawing (2 days to complete)

dsc_0007.jpg

This sketch took me 2 days to finish.

Ironically I am posting the final drawing a few weeks after I have finished it, hahahaha.

When I say 2 days, usually that consists of 8-10 hours a day.

I feel as if I “create” or “art” slower than most artists.

That is okay in my eyes.

You must appreciate the process of the art as well as each moment that is spent creating.

If I am feeling an infinite amount of energy sometimes I lose track of time forgetting to eat and drink.

Losing feeling in my whole body losing myself within the art itself.

12 hours can go by and time will feel infinite as if there is nothing but this very moment.

When time drags you are living in the future.

Waiting for a destination that is nowhere to be.

Waiting for a “future” that is never here in this “moment.”

When time makes you anxious you are thinking of the past.

What “could” have I done.

There is no “could” all there is, is the now.

Without the “now” there would be nothing.

There is nothing but this very moment when creating.

All these mind games I tell you…

The moment holds infinite power.

The power is within you.

When creating art you enter a whole new reality.

Entering other dimensions compared to this dimension on “earth.”

That is on the days I have the chance to work on art.

There are days where I do not art or sketch/draw at all.

My posts are not “up to date.”

I attempt my best to post and be as active as I can.

Do not put all of your energy into the “virtual” world.

Remember to spend some time in the “actual” world.

Focus on the moment and breathe in that fresh H2o

Started a new drawing. (Check it out!)

 

222 f

Started sketching this drawing a while ago.

Took a picture before I got too carried away with the sketching.

I always finish the sketch ten times faster than how long it takes me to color the whole drawing itself.

To me at least. In my subconscious, the colors matter more than the sketch itself.

Then again, you can contradict that and say the sketch is more important than the colors.

Once the colors are applied to the paper you cannot “erase” the color that was applied.

The color that is applied is once and done.

Possibly that is why I care more about the colors more than the sketch.

The sketch is the structure and the color is the emotion/energy within the picture.

My sketches are similar to a bunch of spider webs.

My eyes often begin to bulge and hurt.

I have to take short breaks depending on how “anxious” I am.

The reason why I put quotation marks around the word “anxious.”

Is because I believe we all have a form of “anxiety” or “mental disorder.”

No one is perfect and if you say you are perfect you are the biggest liar in the world.

Life is about turning the imperfect into the “you”

Be yourself instead of aspiring to be someone that is not even yourself in the end.

Become your greatest version.

I usually practice a breathing exercise before arting in any form.

Meditation is the key to balance your energies.

If it were not for my meditations/practices and patience the art you see now would not present itself.

Life is a balance of all the energies combined into one.

You have to figure out what is best for “you.”

Everything is related to or connected to the same center point. (The Soul)

A little late posting this. Finished the drawing a few weeks ago.

It took an immense amount of energy to create this drawing.

The colors in this drawing are similar to some of the drawings I have created in the past.

Attempted to use bright and vibrant colors.

I ended up using almost all of the paper corner to corner.

I use 18×24 inch paper when creating most of my drawings.

Whenever I begin the sketch of each drawing I have an uncertain feeling.

Thinking in my mind. “How will this go” In a doubtful but undoubtful voice.

Thinking of the future and manifesting doubtful thoughts.

Then retelling my subconscious mind anything is possible and to not doubt myself

You can never rush the process.

Especially the creative process.

You have to let the moment “be.”

Let it happen.

If you force the creative process.

The art your soul “intended” to create will not manifest itself into existence.

If you are creating your art for the validation of others.

The purpose of “creation/art” is destroyed.

The creative process should be meditative.

Not forced similar to a “duty.”

Use your heart and soul as tools when creating.

Ignore what others think.

“You” are the creator of your own art.

You have to desire the creative process to the point where you become lost in the process itself.

Create art that will make no sense to you at the moment.

Only in the future, will your creations make “sense” to you.

Let the moment be and accept what you have created.

Fix something if you need to fix something.

Do not get too carried away.

There are infinite mistakes and possible “corrections” or “errors.”

How do we know what is “correct” and “incorrect.”

Art is here for the individual to express themselves through their own reality.

The artist is sharing perspective through their subconscious mind.

Art holds infinite possibilities and ideas…

Harness your energy the best you can before beginning a piece of art.

Be delicate when arting.

Everything is art to a certain extent.

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

– “I think there’s an artist hidden at the bottom of every single one of us.”

– “Look around. Look at what we have. Beauty is everywhere—you only have to look to see it.”

– “This is your world. You’re the creator. Find freedom on this canvas. Believe, that you can do it, ‘cuz you can do it.”

– “You can do anything here — the only prerequisite is that it makes you happy.”

– “Talent is a pursued interest. Anything that you’re willing to practice, you can do.”

– “I guess I’m a little weird. I like to talk to trees and animals. That’s okay though; I have more fun than most people.”

– “I can’t think of anything more rewarding than being able to express yourself to others through painting. Exercising the imagination, experimenting with talents, being creative; these things, to me, are truly the windows to your soul.”

– “The secret to doing anything is believing that you can do it. Anything that you believe you can do strong enough, you can do. Anything. As long as you believe.”

– “If we’re going to have animals around we all have to be concerned about them and take care of them.”

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

Almost complete with the drawing. (Check it out!)

DSC_0165

The colors in this drawing are exploding with energy.

The process of this drawing has been similar to riding a roller coaster.

Each moment is unpredictable with mass amounts of emotion.

The “final” piece of art is never “final.”

It is up to the artist to decide when the art is “final.”

If you really think about it the art is creating itself more than you are creating the art.

“Art” comes from the “subconscious.”

“Everything you “hide” normally you release when feeling “open” with your emotions.

You become “open” during creativity.

Using the subconscious mind.

You can never force creativity.

Creativity must come from the flow state.

Creativity is a form of meditation for the soul, body, and spirit.

All the emotion and energy I am feeling at the moment I express myself in my art.

Energy is in a constant state of movement.

You have to release your energy in a positive way instead of in a negative way.

Release your energy wisely into this world.

Avoid harming yourself and others.

Much love to all you beautiful people!

The drawing slowly keeps revealing itself.

DSC_0118I often apologize for the time in between posts, hahaahah.

Everyone tells me I am okay and to not worry about posting.

I Post when “I” feel the best to post.

“Should” be posting more often than I do.

Thinking my mental state is more important than posting a blog post.

You cannot drop everything for your image/ego.

Health is wealth.

You have to take care of yourself first before doing anything else.

Without yourself, you would not be here.

Take each day, one moment at a time and eventually, the whole day will vanish in a few moments.

Life is lived at a fast pace for most individuals, but in reality, we are moving a mile per hour.

Time is so slow and vast it is hard to measure “time.”

What is “time?”

Time could be anything, hahahah.

Use your “time” wisely.

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”

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………

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!

QUOTE #1 REPOST (NEW ADDITION)

fish-4

Life is quite simple.

There are the trees and there is a sun.

The water flows down the stream.

The sky possesses gusts of wind from time to time.

They say twenty-four hours are in a day.

Without the concept of time.

Twenty-four hours could be a lifetime or possibly 4 minutes.

We only know what we know because of what we are told.

What we “know” is it to be “true” or to be “false.”

Life’s outcome is in your control, but not 100%.

The universe is in more control than anything.

All you need to stay alive is the energy of love.

I might be just a kid.

With just a pencil.

But that kid.

With just a pencil.

Feels many emotions and has much to express to others.

I wish for the negativity to stop and the love to increase.

Being an artist you throw yourself into this world.

Everything from your inner self released to the outside world.

Your “true self” is 110% exposed.

Expressing all most everything I feel and everyone knows the “true” me.

Being my “real self.”

To create art.

You have to step outside your own boundaries and mind.

Step outside of the box you are already within.

When you step outside of the box you are in.

Growth is developed.

There is a lot out there. More than the world you live within.

Remember anything is possible just don’t give up on yourself.

Doubt and fear are your greatest challenges.

Facing your fears helps you grow into a greater you.

Ignoring your fears leads you down the depths of a never-ending tunnel.

To find the light or to live within the darkness forever.

You manifest everything one way or another.

Even if you think you don’t.

You are everything and all things at once.

But then again, not.

Everything is the perception of the mind.

Being an artist is quite imaginary and delusional.

Talking to yourself and creating never-ending ideas within your mind.

Expecting others to be interested.

Without knowing there lies a message and intention in everything.

Even if you don’t intend to create an intention or purpose. You do.

Within the roots of each human. Each individual shows their true self.

The inner self is never shown unless expressed.

I am the happiest kid alive.

All I need is a pencil and I can entertain myself for an infinite amount of lifetimes.

Life is quite simple and easy.

It is just the energy you put into the world.

You get the same energy back that you put into this world.

Negative attracts negative.

Positive attracts positive.

Then again.

Negative and positive are both needed to understand the difference between the two.

We need both negative and positive to live.

I recommend nothing but the power of love.

Be proud of the person you are. The value of thyself, and not the worth.

I rather save 1 billion souls than obtain 1 billion dollars.

Energy never dies.

Numbers are infinite and never end.

The numbers never end, so your happiness will never start.

If all you depend on is the numbers.

It will be similar to following a never-ending path.

Numbers can never make you happy.

Saying that your happiness with never start.

Or begin.

Begin your journey of happiness now or regret each and every moment of life.

I send positivity and love to each soul reading this.

Create nothing but positive energy. Ignore the hatred from others.

Attempt your best to resist joining the negative mindset of others.

Be the best you that you can be.

Much love!
