Check out the drawing! (70%) Complete.

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.

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.

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

DSC_0252

In this picture, the drawing is almost complete.

The variety of colors I am using is uplifting the energy of the process.

You come to a realization where you have to take a deep breath and you realize art is all about the moments and not the “final result.”

The “end result” would not be here if it was not for all the moments in between.

In this society, most individuals are seeking an “end result.”

The journey of life never ends until you “end.”

Appreciate the moments as they pass.

There will be a moment in time where these moments you are experiencing right now at this moment will never happen again.

Live your best life.

Be your unique self and express your soul to the universe.

You are you for a reason.

Be you and fear nothing about yourself.

Spread your wings and free yourself from all the tension society creates within your soul.

Do not take this life for granted.

Life is a gift.

One day you will be here.

Another day you will not be here.

Appreciate this life sooner than later.

Before this life is gone in a blink of an eye.

Life is my riches.

Much love to all the beautiful people!

Slowly taking shape. About 50% colored.

DSC_0242

The image is starting to take shape.

I am always “worried” about the eyes and facial features when I am drawing a person.

All you have to do is believe in yourself and trust the process.

Within my subconscious mind, I believe in myself.

In my conscious mind.

The “logical” mind is telling me “it is impossible.”

That is the trick of the psyche.

The subconscious has you believing in things that make no sense to others but thyself.

The conscious mind has you believing in “logic.”

Sometimes you have to forget logic and use fantasy instead.

Life should not be taken too seriously.

If you “control” yourself too much.

You can never “free” yourself.

This life is a game in the end.

Be a part of the game.

Losing yourself in every moment.

To never find yourself.

Unless you wish to be in control of thyself and your thoughts/actions.

To enter the matrix or to leave the matrix.

I love the color scheme I am using in this drawing.

These colors are exploding with color and energy.

I never know what I am doing when I am creating.

Then again, I know everything.

You become lost within your creations when you are creating.

You become the art itself.

As I am drawing and creating.

I am transferring pieces of my soul onto the paper itself.

“I” represent parts of myself onto the paper.

Art is mostly subconscious thinking.

You have to “think outside the box.”

To manifest new ideas and creations.

To be inside the box or to be out of the box.

To not be yourself or to be yourself.

In the end, we all have a “choice” to do what we wish to do.

Choose wisely, my friends.

Choose wisely……

More crazy colors added.

Recently received some new drawing paper I ordered off the internet.

The brand is “Strathmore. ”

I have heard a lot of great reviews about this paper/brand.

Before I was using different paper a little thinner than the paper I just got.

Still, thick just not as thick as the current paper I will be using.

The color on the new paper I got is a little tan as well.

The tan color is supposed to help the image pop out even more than normal.

Going to have to think of new drawing ideas.

So I can use the new paper.

Will be brainstorming in my head thinking of what to draw next.

Again, I apologize for the post not being up to date.

I post when I can post.

I appreciate everyone’s patience.

Thank you and much love! 😊

New colors added! (Check it out)

DSC_0149

New colors added to the drawing.

You have to enjoy the process of the art otherwise everything will be “forced” with zero flow.

When there is zero flow.

The art will not manifest itself into existence.

I practice breathing exercises before arting.

Lowers the “intensity” my mind is manifesting.

Remember everyone.

“It” “is” all in your head.

Whatever that “it” happens to be.

“Is” it all in your head?

How do you know if what you feel and sense in your presence is “real?”

Take it easy.

Live in the moment.

All we possess is the moment.

After the moment has passed there comes the next moment and the next moment.

The moments never stop happening.

If you think about it there is no moment beside the moment that happens before this moment.

The past is the past.

The future is in a constant cycle of revealing itself.

Breathe and remember you are the controller of this life.

You have a “choice” every day.

To be anything or to do anything you want in every moment of this life.

Let your surroundings consume you.

In the end, becoming a product of your own environment.

Unless you wish to dig deep within your own soul and adventure the depths of your individual psyche.

“We” all possess an individual unique self.

If you bother to express your unique self to the world or not.

That is up to you.

Follow the herd of sheep or become your own leader manifesting your own destiny.

You have the ability to manifest any future you desire.

The energy you put into this world you will get in return from the universe.

Do not become a victim.

Do not play the self-pity game.

Become your greatest version everyone.

Have a great day all you beautiful souls!

😘
