So it has been a year apparently, this is what WordPress is notifying me with. 1 year, that wasn’t that long ago. I remember the day making this blog, it felt like yesterday. Others have helped me get where I’m today.
Life is nothing much but a team effort, with just yourself it’s quite hard to accomplish anything. Someone will help you at least one way or another. Throughout this year, I have got a lot of help from many people. Without these people, I wouldn’t be here at this very moment typing this. Possibly doing something else and not even focusing a single amount of energy towards art.
I remember all the times I didn’t create art at all. Those were the worst times, things always had a negative energy towards them. I walked around angry and depressed at this world. More lost than I’m now. We’re all lost humans, all lost in our own ways.
Have it be emotional problems, health issues, insecurities…… etc. I think most will understand what I’m saying. We’re all prisoners of our own minds. All sitting within a chair in the middle of a dark room to see nothing but pure darkness. Every thought and memory to creep up on you. As if nothing but words and visions are monsters attacking you while you defend them off.
Visions are played through your mind over and over to never forget. It’s only the things you wish to forget that you don’t forget, how Ironic. The mind is a tricky thing.
Throughout this year, I have learned quite a lot. In all different aspects of life, good and bad. That’s just how it’s. Moments will not always be great, but just attempt to make them greater than they seem to be.
Saying this, art has found me in life. or maybe I found the art, who knows. I guess either way works if you think about it.
Now I sit here, 1 year later from the day I typed up my first blog post. An individual who didn’t know what he was doing. This person was so dazed and confused they didn’t know what right from wrong was.
First Blog post: VVVVV
(Recommend reading this, will know me more as a person and understand more.)
The reason why I say this is this.
“Everything I have done in my life, each person has something to say about it. Each definition of their thought being their own. Then there are my thoughts, my ideas, and my emotions. Never two humans alike, it’s as if you caused an offense of some sort. By speaking your state of mind. Being your original self and not a copy, creating your own destiny and not following a path someone gives you. A map with an X marks the spot. If you happen to do anything that someone doesn’t like, the thought they will have towards you will be negative. If I’m happy doing what I’m doing, then there is no reason to stop, people often walk around and tell each other what’s up as if they know everything. If I’m happy doing what I do in the end. Then I’ll continue doing so, even if it means the whole world not accepting me. I rather accept myself than have a bunch of people accept me for who I’m not. Nothing much, but a false reality. happiness is different for everyone and no one will understand but yourself. If it means losing individuals and possessions, then I guess you do that. All I wish to be is happy and that’s it, that’s all I want and nothing else.”
This is the reason why I have changed so drastically in the past year or so. My mindset has changed a lot. It’s all about your mindset and you can accomplish anything you wish to do in this world.
Many will tell you that you can’t do something. With that mindset in your mind, that will just do nothing but destroy you. Take you down and make you feel like a nobody. I’ve learned to turn the negative energy into positive energy. Creating myself into who I’m today. This “Brandon Knoll” we speak of.
All I wish for is peace and love in this world, for the energy of love to spread like a virus of some sort. Nationwide love and nothing else. Peace with all humans. I’ve been told by many that all the thing I think are just “dreams” or “not possible.’ I’m pretty sure all the people that “succeeded” were told this too. So, in the end, it’s nothing but an ego of a person spewing words out of their mouth. Negative energy flowing from all areas. Some people just don’t understand I guess.
All I ask for is Love from each individual, no matter what they look like or sound like. None of that really matters in the end, it’s more about the soul of a human being.
A way I can find my happiness is through art and writing. Sharing my experiences with the world through art. Art is an energy form of itself in a way. A whole new creation brought into this world. Never seen before.
Not knowing what I was doing a year ago, I’ve learned a little bit. You always have more time for learning, no one knows too much or too little. This journey of life will be endless and it will never end, till you make it end.
“I’d like to thank everyone for following me on WordPress and all other people who support me as well. As an artist, you wouldn’t be where you’re if it wasn’t for the people. the people create the artist. So, in the end, my audience creates me. All of you are my “art family” I have good connections with a lot of individuals. Like I said, all I ask for is peace and love.
If it wasn’t for that one day I decided in my mind, “I’m going to be an artist.” Like I said at the begging of this post. I wouldn’t be here or have created a single piece of art.
All of this art I’m about to show you could have just been a “dream” or an “impossible idea” but somehow I sit here typing this.
It’s very hard to process life itself to me, every day I question everything and my existence. Being an artist my goal is to make you question your reality, but also question my reality as well. Be so creative that it takes me to a whole new level, every day I learn something new. I just can’t give up and the progress will keep on continuing.
I want everyone to remember don’t give up on yourself and seek for small improvements over time everything will add up. Just don’t rush the process and let it happen.
I’d like to share all of my analytics with everyone to show the progress and the improvements that have happened in the past year. Not doing this to shine my ego, but to show everyone that anyone can do anything. All you have to do is set your mind to it.

Now to show the progress of the past year of artwork. Here are the drawings from the past year, I’ll put them in the best order I can.
I’m going to put a picture of each drawing. Then a link to each blog for the full details of each artwork.
If you have missed any drawings and wish to go back. You can do so by clicking on each link under each artwork. Throughout the time you can see the improvements. These are in order of creation.
Here are all the pieces of art from the year. The average drawing took a month or so, sometimes longer or shorter than a month.
I’d like to say thank you to everyone who has followed and who is following at the moment. wouldn’t be here without you. Thanks for letting me reach this milestone.
Much more to come this year……….
Let’s see what happens in 2018, the possibilities could be infinite. the future is unpredictable.
