Finished sketch.

This is the finished sketch. Drawing this was quite sudden. It was a fast decision, the paper was put on the drawing table. The final product was produced in a long but short period. Only took me about 8 hours. But only took one day not a few as usual.

I’ve said this in my past posts. The speed I’m drawing at seems to be increasing slowly but surely. The ease and thoughts disappear and only art is the true focus. When all thoughts are canceled and the only focus is art. You get lost in your own work, finding a place to follow at and you get lost on an adventure.

My best way of explaining it is this. The chair is the beginning of the trail for each time I draw. Imagine a wooden hiking sign, without a name written on it. The name is blank and you create what happens. When the pencil is put on the paper I begin walking down the path, depending on how I feel in each moment determines the path of the route. Places that were seen and actions experienced upon. The actions and things that were seen create the adventure/trail

The whole idea or purpose is to focus like a child and have fun each time I draw, don’t force my legs dragging each step. Enjoy the steps taken and appreciate every scenery exposed to or seen on the trail. That’s the drawing process, the walking down the path, to enjoy it and not force or autopilot it.

Don’t like to boast about myself, but thought I would share this with you. If I can improve my art skills so can you. The results happen right in front of your eyes. This works with everything else as well. Not to say I’m better than you, but to show how anyone can improve at something. It just takes time and effort. In the end, things will slowly add up and make sense. If I were to force and rush each drawing the original beauty will be lost. The true potential won’t be shown. Take it easy but still make sure things are happening

Remember to never give up on yourself, then no progress will be shown. Even if it’s a little amount who cares 1% is greater than -1% any amount is greater. Make each day feel awesome.

With the image being where it’s, what do you see? look at all details and shapes. The possibilities could never end, use that imagination of yours.

 

 

 

New sketch (Almost complete)

spider

Here is how far I am at the moment. Probably should have stopped sooner to take a picture. Was to in the moments of making the drawing, didn’t want to take a picture till later.

Sorry about that, meant to take a picture sooner. If I could make a flip book of every segment you could watch the sketch build up over time. When I get a camera, maybe I can figure something out like that.

In the process of making this drawing, I’ve noticed my speed keeps increasing every time. My old self would have taken a few days or a while to sketch this. Instead, it took about 3 sessions for today. Still, have a little more time draw after I post. So about 6 plus hours as of right now.

My mind tells me when it’s time for a break, then a new session is started. Usually, last around 2 or so hours each. Unless it’s a day where time is completely lost and hours and hours go by and I forget to eat. Depends on the day.

With where the sketch is at so far, what do your eyes see in the image?

Remember only hints and clues will be given, good luck guessing. Use that imagination of yours to the fullest potential. Anything could be in the image, look closely.

This one is a bit different, having fun with it. Let’s see where this one goes.

 

Quote #32

32

The true endeavor is to never give up. Then change and occurrences will happen.

But to continue on every day facing the same actions is much of a nightmare. The adventures and places traveled to are never seen and ignored.

Not on purpose or on accident, but out of 100% fear. The mind playing games, creating anxiety messing with the imagination. Only to think something without knowing the true answer.

Go out there and do things people don’t normally do.

Things that you would never think you would have done.

You learn things about yourself when you change up the whole process.

Listen to the voices within and they will guide you where to go.

There will be multiple voices talking to you. We’ll know what voice is the correct voice.

But we don’t always choose that voice, mostly just ignore that voice and challenge it. But not on purpose, but on accident.

Unknown to what voice to pick, but deep down you know what voice is correct.

Follow the comforting voice and the moments will just pass

Follow the unsure voice and you’ll have a few ideas of where to go.

Follow the voice you know is correct and the adventure will be true love and happiness. Each day will bring something new to look forward too. Every day will be a blessing and lived in gratitude. The present moment will be appreciated. Anything will be possible,

But just never give up.

All of the voices are different each moment, they’re like creatures speaking to you on the corners. The voices will enter from all areas. You will follow creatures’ voices that are more interesting to you. In the moment.

Try to think before following each voice, but not too much.

nor too little.

Like I said don’t create anxiety in the mind. The imagination plays games with you.

Just let the mind wander in thought and think what’s best for you in the end.

What will make you the happiest, little changes can occur and huge differences will occur. In a short period of time and you’ll be surprised by the change.

Find your true self and accept yourself for who you’re.

The voices are your teachers and guide you through life.

similar to the good and the bad. Ying and Yang.

All voices flying from everywhere.

The individual decides to follow one voice out of the 100’s surrounding him/her.

Only 1 is the true self. Don’t think much or think too little.

Your curiosity in this world will bring you down the correct paths.

Follow and listen to your curiosity, but be careful. This life is similar to a movie. Anything can happen at any moment.

Appreciate what you have at the moment. Do things you’ve never thought of and the paths will be easier to follow.

Life’s all about self-teaching and looking at the past. The old you helps create the person you’re today. Try your best to not look at your old self and compare in a bad way, but good. What can you do today, that will create you into a better you than yesterday? Don’t continue to dig the hole deeper. free yourself.

Don’t follow the old paths you hate, but learn from them. Everyday Is a new you, each day is something new to look forward to. It’s like a video game. Make the most fun out of it you can.

Don’t regret and hate this life. Appreciate and love this life.

I send love and happiness to all, thank you for being who you’re.

Your curiosity and imagination will pick and choose your paths.

Good luck everyone, I believe in each and everyone one of you.

There’s no reason you can’t achieve anything, as long as you set your mind and heart to it and never give up any sort of success is on the way.

Don’t do something just for the ending event, it’s more about the process and journey than the end result. There is no end in life it’s never-ending. Don’t fix your mind on success, but growth and your improvement each day.

Succes will just create a delusion in your mind. success is a misunderstood concept. This word is very confusing to me.

To live in the now there is no “success”, but to live in the future there is thought of success, but the present moment is ignored, not even to be focused on. we all succeed in our own ways. It’s just the way you look at it.

Octopus

Finished up the drawing about an hour ago. I Always clean the image before spraying it. When doing that I check the paper for pencil shavings from the colors and fill in white areas that are easily noticeable.

Whenever a piece is done, I look at it and think it’s never done. Something can always be added or messed with.

I have to stop myself or I would work on one single piece my whole life, hahahaha.

You never know when you’re really done, I guess you’re done when your guts say. “Okay, I think we’re done here now.” hahahaha.

Throughout the process of drawing this, there were endless guesses. Like always, the guesses ranged from, the image I was thinking, things I never thought to be in the image and many more ideas. It’s always enjoyable and interesting when people look at my art.

Sometimes people see things that I never knew were in my art, and it’s just there. It just takes time for my mind to process others ideas and images. I don’t always see what everyone else sees. I try my best to use my imagination and see what the viewers see

I guess anything could be in my art. When there’s no color, the range of ideas is infinite throughout the mind. With color as, well, anything could be in the image too.

It’s all about what the viewer decides to see. They say what you see defines your emotions in a way. How you’re feeling at the moment.

Everyone will see the same exact image, but not necessarily. Depending on the individual the image will be transferred differently. Seeing the same image but in the end, we’ll all look at it differently creating a new story for each one of us.

Let your imagination take over and create a picture for you to see. Don’t hold on, let it be free. Think no thoughts and just focus on the colors and shapes to create a final image.

In this image, I see a colorful octopus.

When looking at this drawing the meaning of it will be different for everyone.

My first thought is freedom or a free-spirited soul. All the colors represent the journey happing within the octopus, crazy looking to most but happy and full of colors being the emotions on the inside. Feeling all emotion that can be felt. From the worst emotions to the best emotions. Every feeling that is possible. Notice how I say that this is the inside of the octopus. It’s the inside that only matters. Each person is like this octopus. All revealing different colors and such. Never to really show, but it’s all within. Being the emotions, creating each individual.

This octopus is on a mission and nothing is in its way, the colors also represent the strength and vitality of the spirit of the octopus.

Like I said before what you see is how you feel emotionally.

Each drawing in a way. After I complete it, I’m the drawing. I feel what the image looks like. The colors represent how I feel at the moment.

I feel like a colorful octopus on a mission and nothings stopping me. I’m riding on a wave at a certain frequency enjoying this journey of life day by day. For each day to bring new endeavors. All challenges accepted to create thyself into the greatest version that’s out there.

Life itself and the experiences you create are the greatest teachers that are out there. Learn and mess up, both are needed. Life’s not a clean and simple paved road, there will be many twists and turns.

Just never lose your balance or frequency, kinda like riding a bike and in the end, everything will be okay. Follow your gut and heart.

I’m this octopus and so are you, it’s just that we will all interpret It differently.

I shared my story. What’s your story? What do you see in this image? There’s no right or wrong, share as you please.

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.

 

Quote #31

w31

Judging others for how you feel, it makes sense. Try to take it out in a positive way. Not aggressive.

The hurt have been hurt.

Some don’t know how to transfer the negating energy into positive. Creating more ignorance in the world.

Guns are better than love.

What an insane world we live in.

We’re beings made to create conflict. To forcefully have an opinion on everything.

The conscious was created to have conflict and to argue about things. Have an opinion.

The challenge is on us and the world is living proof that we’re failing as a world and nation. Anger and greed destroy the world.

There’s always time to improve things, we better start sooner than later.

People live their lives as if it’s their last in the depressing and sad way. Not beautiful and in love.

Try to appreciate the moments as they pass by, not be bitter and angry, complaining about every little thing, that your mind thinks about.

Just take a deep breath, look into the beautiful painted sunset in the sky and appreciate the moment for how it’s.

Right now you could just be in pure darkness and death and nothing could be happening

Life itself is a gift, maybe you think I’m wrong but like I said.

That’s the challenge, to accept others for their thoughts and ideas.

If not agreed upon, using rational talking and discussing. Problems can be figured out in a peaceful way.

But in the world, we live in today. To relieve one’s stress, we do the opposite of everything we should be doing.

Love is the answer in my eyes.

Love is the only thing that can heal this world.

An abundance of love and nothing else.

There’s no pill or secret weapon besides true, pure love.

Giving an individual the love and attention they need, most likely they won’t latch out.

The hurt have been hurt.

The hurt are reflections of others.

The “bad guy” Is confused and uncertain about what he is doing.

Moving without thought or idea.

Being ignorant. Attacking one’s side saying thyself is correct and the other is wrong.

To say someone is wrong and thyself is correct, is not a discussion of peace and love.

More like bullets and pulling on legs. Anger and greed, thinking of only thyself importance.

The other to be ignored and not cared about.

I don’t see any love in that.

Without receiving love you can’t give love, maybe you can but most can’t.

Love others and pass it on to everyone.

After we figure out nothing works, the worst situation happens.

Then we learn, but too bad it’ll be too late.

The actions already happened there’s no going back.

Be aware of what’s going on what you do to others. If they’re not words of love or actions of positivity, keep them to yourself.

All you’ll do is hurt yourself and all the ones around you.

I’m going to continue spreading love everywhere I go and maybe people will tag along with me.

Remember when someone is being ignorant, they’re just confused and a misunderstood person.

There’s no correct or incorrect.

A 6 can be a 9 and a 9 can be a 6.

It’s just the perspective you want to choose.

Whatever you choose to think, creates thyself.

Not thyself into everyone else.

Become you and don’t try to create others into something they’re not. We’ll all have different intentions and such in this world.

I send love and happiness to everyone, have a beautiful day! πŸ™‚

Judge me as you want it won’t bother me, we’re just two different individual human beings.

Try the best to lose the ego, the self-worth of thyself. It’s more of the individual’s self to control it than anything else. We all have one. I’m in the process of losing my ego.

The ego destroys itself thinking it’s correct, but guiding into the opposite way intended.

Keep to yourself unless the intention is appropriate. The intention you have creates or destroys the moment. Reading people’s intentions are quite easy. Respects is the best thing to acquire from others. It’s rare these days.

The ego destroys the individual

To not have an ego. Is to have an ego. I thought to not have an ego, therefore to not think I don’t have an ego. I do have an ego and so do you. It’s just how we control it. It’s like a mask or cloak. At any given moment you can put it on and take it off. The actions and words each individual represents determines their ego. To create or destroy yourself.

Crazy color combination.

colors

When making art, you can’t think about real-life scenarios or anything in general. Besides art, If you think about anything else, you won’t enjoy making the art as much as you can.

I try to get in the “zone” that’s what I call it. It’s as if something is controlling me when I draw. It’s similar to a runners high.

I draw and it doesn’t stop, continuous until my hand cramps and I take a break. Fighting the cramps sometimes to finish the last pieces. A battle against the paper and the mind, hahaha. Only do I wish I could draw nonstop, sometimes it takes a lot of energy to motivate yourself.

Making art is a lot harder than people think, sure it might not make your hands dirty unless you’re using paint, hahaha. But the mind is worked out to the max.

I feel as if I get mind headaches from my art sometimes, it’s a lot to process. All the different colors and shapes.

An example you can see, I get bored in one area and end up all over the place on the drawing. Then there are times I’m slow and steady and stay in one area, it depends on the way I’m feeling that day.

I Always do my best to feel tension free when drawing. Don’t drag your hand across the paper, be light weighted.

With all the crazy colors you see, what’s in the image before your eyes?

 

Quote #30

23667502_1869747496414265_682858063_n

Making art and writing keeps me sane in this “insane” world

Albert Einstein “insane” To do something the same way over and over and expect different results.

I look at art and it’s completely sane.

Every time I create it’s a new experience and not boring or the same. Clicks some life into my soul.

I look at the world and this so-called government and I think “insane”

Albert Einstein was totally correct.

β€œInsanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”

Albert Einstein has another quote talking about how the imagination is the only thing to set you free. I totally agree with him on this one, without it, I’d feel like a prisoner locked up in this world.

“Imagination is everything. It Is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”

The imagination is infinite and priceless remember to never lose your imagination in this “insane” world.

My imagination is the only thing keeping me alive and running.

Without It, I wouldn’t know what or who to be.

Thank you imagination for being there for me when no one else is.

You’re always there and never a nonsense.

We accept each other and make the most creative ideas you can think of.

Thank you imagination and have a great day!

When I sleep every night it’s rebooting my imagination for new ideas and thoughts.

Every moment and day is a new moment to create your life into a better one.

That “one” stupid or nonsensible idea you had, could possibly change the world to be insane to sane.

Don’t give up on your dreams and ideas, not everyone will understand you. The ones who do will come to you at the right moment.

But you and your imagination understand each other like no other.

I’ll never be breaking up with my imagination. I appreciate every moment my mind thinks and creates creative ideas.

If you were to enter my mind it would be full of fantasies, unrealistic thoughts, and adventures. It would be one crazy ride/adventure for you to enter.

I try my best to express what’s going on in my imagination. Many things are confusing within it. Like another language/dialect of some sort. So deep some don’t understand and will say I’m “insane” or judge.

But in reality, am I the insane one. Or are you the insane one for calling me insane.

It’s a game of pointing fingers and the talk of the ego.

We’re all insane. If you reckon, to not be insane. You’re probably are insane yourself.

Listen to the words you speak before you talk to others. You might hurt yourself and others similar to a war. The words you speak could be similar to gunshots and multiple injuries. Concluding to the same concept as war itself. In a different format.

Be aware of what you’re thinking before you think the first thought. Don’t just do unless you know what you’re doing.

Lose the self-worth and accept others for who they’re. All of our values end up to be equal at the end of the day. Sure, you might own a yacht or things people don’t, Or whatever you think is in your mind. But at the end of the day we all sleep, eat, and shit. The actions you do through the day create the life you choose and who you’re, not others peoples lives. Your life, the reality you live in.

The imagination is my best friend. I don’t feel sad or “depressed” saying this. I’m proud and happy we have the best relationship we can have.

I couldn’t imagine what I would do without you imagination

Not everything I think is released, but I try my best to explain the thoughts I have and continue to have.

I question why I have the thoughts I do or how I come up with them. What thoughts were I thinking to think these thoughts?

Life blows my mind it’s hard for me to understand anything. The simplest things. I look at a leaf or my finger and each has a “print” or identification.

But why, haha.

Why this, why what? I’m like a little kid, I have a question about everything.

After asking the question I’ll have another question after that question. It never ends, hahaha.

The infinite imagination, the ideas, and numbers never end.

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.

Vibrant and bright colors. (Color added to sketch.)

23549688_1862297810492567_120519143_n

Here’s how far I got tonight. Not feeling the best, have a cold. But that’s not an excuse.

It’s making me lag in progress, but progress is progress. The hours add up.

The colors in this drawing are a little crazy as you can see. Very vibrant and bright. eye-popping.

Don’t have the colors confuse you, remember the imagination. Any color combination is possible. I don’t have to follow the rules and make the image the correct colors.

That’s the freedom of art. You can do whatever you want with zero rules.

Observe the colors and shapes. Squint your eyes. Turn your head sideways, whatever you have to do. To look at it.

As of right now, what do you see in the image?

Take your time and don’t rush it, anything could be here.

Thank you.
