painting again

​I'm starting to paint again. I always paint but I mean with my first love acrylics. The smells and the sound of the brush and the paint are like sex of sort.......Painting  is my heart and my wife is my soul and bikes are my legs and my finger tips are my brushes lovers.

My city

My city is alive. I forget some times until  get on the metro which are like the veins that lead to it's heart. Not the capital but the people, the food and books....it love sand lives and smiles and coughs and sleeps.

triple eyez




So times I forget why I do this but the comments make me smile and suddenly it all feels alive. Like a gladiator hearing the cheers of the people and he is tire and bloody but feels more alive then ever.

Long time......

So I haven't written anything to you guys in a long time. Or at least to me it feels like a long time.
 I have painted and worked and crafted so much stuff that you can see on  My website. But this is not about that. This is about just me.

So I picked up The Last Of Us a few months back. I loved it the story was so deep and beautiful and dark so it was perfect for me. I love movies and books and music like that. I'm a gluten for that shit. It is the heart beat some times in me. Not sure that is always a good thing but it is me. I started buying games or a game once or twice a year when I was twenty because I noticed painting all the time none stop was driving me crazy and I was super depressed on fall breaks in college because I wasnt painting. I never really had much money so this was easier than a long road trip to South America. Because yes! I would have driven to Chile in a car and not thought about how I would get back or even maybe I should learn to speak amazing Spanish before hand. I was wilder then I am now by far. Youth.....

In this life I'm just wanting to be noticed as a painter and so I do lots of free art with others because I enjoy selling art but hate the pressure of money. To sell and buy and pay for everything.

I'm doing some art with some SG's. So that is super exciting. I'm afraid a bit to fail but it is the only real fears I notice.  I have a great life and a amazing wife and in that I am gifted.     But I always need a brush on me to feel whole.

Two days after a bad day

Today is the second day after Trayvon Martin's killer walks free. I say it this way so to point out no matter how you feel about the outcome of the case the sentence is true. Zimmerman killed young Mr. Martin. I'm not going to argue about how I feel. It makes me sad to see a young brother die. I hate death. It hurts and never fixes anything. Now that I have said that I can say happier things.

I didn't paint the last few days. It was hard to focus but today is a new day......

Hi water people...gypsy s

So....I am not good at writing in this every day. Sorry. But I want to be.

I used to write in crazy babble when I was in a bad place just to vent and I'm in a great place now so I'm open and so I write less but I still have lots of plans to tell all of you so bear with me.


This is what I have been doing everyday for three months now. I think I really love it. I felt weird at first putting them up because I was afraid of judgement. The response has been amazing so I feel comfortable about it. I shouldn't care so much but I still do. It is just a part of my make up.


I'm workings slowly on a book...like a really art book. Full of pictures and stories and creativity  and hope. I'm just want it to be perfect.

More painting today

Very busy painter

Painting

I never noticed how much I love to paint alone. It makes me happy and comfy. I want to be able to do live shows but I'm not sure I'm able to really vanish in the brush strokes when I think about being watched.

Love yah mean it......painter out

hmmm

Painting for me is like controlled drowning. I am deeply addicted to the rush and it makes me feel alive when i finish. I love the thrill it gives me when i pull off something that I'm not sure I thought I could.

I've been excited and beat up on becoming the artist I always wanted to be and I feel like i'm there now. I can breathe and be and love who i am and that feels very good .

Hot tea

I am weirdly inspired.....I'm microwaving my cold tea and I feel the solar winds so I back up a bit and think I have been exposed to much worst in my life. What the fuck is wrong with me in the morings?

I'm always worried this blog reads like a crazy person behind the wheel. Maybe it does or maybe it should be.

Hmmmm

Hi,

Warning this is going to be long winded.

I've been at war. Honestly, I know how JMB felt now. I'm feeling angry about the racism in the art world. All my but on of my favorite living artists aren't black. He'll only a few aren't male. It's not that I am trying to not enjoy painters from all backgrounds ...it's that it's so fucking hard to find multicultural artists. That are in the main stream. You have to look for "special" art types to see different artists. It's not in magazines or even the newspapers. It's like they hide us in back rooms. It makes me really made for my self and for the public. Shepard Fairy is very talented but I see so many artist on the walls of DC who should be standing information of him or at least beside him. Share all the art you find people! Please! No one with power is going to write about your cousin or friends ...you have to. Ghandi said " be the change you wish to see in the world."

If I post something you like...share it...no one else I feel is going to. I need your help. I am that great artist at a gallery show they put up in the small back room gallery because I'm young and not a white guy. I feel beat up some days by this but I push on because honestly fuck those people! I do this because I love it and I sell a lot of work normally. I just wish I could get the chance to make the world get a chance to see me paint. I work really hard but I feel like if I let people put me in a box of just being another "black artist" then I be left out of a huge amount of people seeing my work. Like the back corner of a newspaper that only a few people will read because it's next to ads for strip clubs.

Help me out here.

Later and love you,

Jaws

Thanks for hearing me out.

Hi'yah

So here well go.

I'm thinking of working on my own web comic on my website. It will be a page on my site. I very excited but I'm not sure how it will go. But I'll try really hard to make it good. I'm thinking a "the tick" type story line but with my luchadoras and luchadors. We'll see.

Hi guys

Sooooooo...I have been trying to publish some audio recordings on this blog but I have failed so far. "You are so failure," as I would of said as a child.

So the jest of what I was trying to do was a audio of my unwritten Bio. I have come with some crazy bios in my life but the true bio is not published. I used to make up stuff to get people at shows to buy art. It was fun and funny but no one really knows much about me from them. They have truth to them but only part truths.

I mean I am a honest guy but I love jokes ...sooo....yeah...sorry but not really.

I'm 31......lets see.....I went to art college.....I'm mostly self taught and I love /feel sad when I see art that moves me. 1 because it is amazing and 2 because I 'm never sure I live up to the art that moves me. It's hard loving other peoples art because it is amazing and it makes me feel lazy.  But I still go in search for it...every day because I love being moved.......the real bio.....I'm still discovering and I feel is like a million billion words.


tuna...fish ......mango....egg..bunny...feet..lemon dragons!

no reason ...just because.

Running thoughts

Is it weird I feel the earth quiver? The wind. Seems to have a distant whisper. Maybe I'm on a newer path that leads to my canvases? These deep thought blogs are going weird places. Lol

I've been playing Walking Dead game. It takes me deep places and with Yerba Mate I'm traveling more.

I think I need to start doing yoga again .
