moving .....

I'm starting new blog on Wordpress. I feel like with more places to put my work up I'll have more traffic and to be honest I see way more traffic there then I do here.

Honey and whisky painting by Jaws Blake

Art is the moment you realize you made something and wonderful and wonder if it looks as good to other people as  it does your mom.  maybe....

The painterist

I don't do contests. I have never wanted to see how good I stack against other artists. I feel art is so meaningful to everyone is a billion different ways that you can't hold artists over each other.  But  now I do want you to click the heart button on my prints on Society6 because then more people will see it who are looking to by art prints.

All the hearts are our children painting by Jaws Blake

I love making ones like these. They have so much muchness in them.
The path of a painter is often unknown. It has so many bends that doesn't break you if you are lucky. If you do break  it is in the hope you mend and become stronger. I feel like I have a million scars. Each tells the story of who I have become as a painter. Nothing is simple in finding your style. I don't have a road map to show the way to find yourself. Truth is i don't know how I went left rather then right....I just did.

I'm making more prints now.

I've been thinking for a while that I should make more prints of some of my older works. They were loved by my fans but I think my work can be to much in cost for all my fans so prints; you know?

I feel really good making them and I love seeing the prints I can do table top shows with...so win ..win.

I want to be them one day. I want to be something so amazing as a painter that my bones are worth being studied.  I know that is some Dali shit but I want it so bad. I want to join a group of artists in DC that do shows and are fun talented people. I want to be this amazing man who makes his family proud and happy for him.

Trans rights are human rights

Life is important and the right to a good life is very important.

I'm silly. I have this idea this is a race to the bottom. I want to be the one of the best in the world. I know art is a person journey.....no artist is the same. We take paths that are different and creative roads that never existed before us. I guess I took a break which I hate doing after the art show and then Marley's birthday took me down a bit too. Simple paths are easier but deep paths are torture.

Art Hop 2016

This week end I was in an art festival called Art Hop. It was my second year doing it. I met a lot of cool people and ran into a lot of talented friends. It was funny. Art festivals are often lame if the crowds are small but this crowd was so happy to be there and talk to me I loved it.  I did a few paintings at the show to keep myself entertained and so the monsters live. :) 

Just want to say thank you to everyone who came out and all the great people who meant to come out.

pennies of people

It all comes out like dreams. The feet and the head are a trillion miles away. The days are short but forever in distance. All and none at the same time. Alec is my anchor is such big beautiful ways. I fear going full painter again. It is to much for the mind to take on. Ink and brushes and paint and paper........everything,,,

weird little things (me) and the stuff I paint

There are moments when I create madness on a canvas and others where the madness creates me. That moment that I'm inside one is often both. I love how much love I've gotten this year for my paintings. It has scared me on a few occasions. I had this fear I was on the tip of a pin and to every side of me doing well I would just fall off and be forgotten. It feels strange to admit that but it is honest and I promised a long time ago to always be honest with you guys. I want to be thought of as all these things people have said to me and even about me but I am as always afraid of not being humble. So a big and huge thank you to you all and I'll keep on making because that is what my heart wants of me.

Being an artist in 2016 by Jaws Blake

at my best I am a dreamer who recreates what I see behind my eyes without noticing what a gift that is.

I'm coming back to Youtube. I miss it..even if I will end up in the same events as before....craziness. I don't know; I enjoy posting my videos on Youtube so either way I should just go for it.

I had this fear I was maybe too old to do well on Youtube but as I looked around YB I noticed I'm kind of average age. It's silly. I hope you all check out my new video when it comes out tonight.

I have never done a video like this before so I figured it was a popular topic so why not?

I fill up sketch books like crazy so a sketchbook tour video was easy enough.

Sometimes making is pulling all of myself apart to find my edges.

My own personal beast

All the things.....are illuminated. They live on this hill in my mind. Just colors and shapes forever.
