Building a New Momentum

Standard

Time is of the essence. Every moment is best experienced in its truest essence. When you want to change your life, change your lifestyle. If you’re going a certain direction and you need to change course, it takes some time and commitment to bring that energy in a different direction.

I created a crystal grid. 4 Buddhas, Shiva, and many minerals only half of which (maybe) I know the names. The longest two are lemurian seed crystal (left) and selenite (right).

Shiva with malachite, bismuth & blue aventurine (I think). Also are amethyst with a clear quartz, and tangerine & rose quartz either 45 degree angle from him. The big flat rock I found in a creek closer to my college.

Kyanite with my worry stone. I like to worry passionately. The crumbs are bismuth. (’tis a fragile element)

The center points to this tiger’s eye. It looks nice with the sun going through it.

I even saved these guys from the label prisons, but not before taking a low-resolution reference photo!

Playing with paint, 3 freshly unfinished pieces floating about now. All of which will find their awesome potential. I want to loosen my approach.

I also doodled a concept sketch for the kung fu show.

To not delve too much, this guy’s reality is… different. There’s an awesome story why, I’m excited to help make it a reality.
And things that are brewing:
– Jamming with new metal heads with aim to write cool stuff.
– Brainstorming topics for video blogging.
– Coming into alignment. You, yes you. It’s happening.

The Great Wazu! (& WIP)

Standard

Thanks to the wonderful helping hand of fellow artist & friend Justin Patterson, I now have a few paintings hanging in The Great Wazu, a delicious deli shop in Parsippany, NJ. It’s a cozy place with walls covered in artwork by people all around. You can see my paintings surrounding two of Justin’s large paintings. His impressionist style totally suits the distant view. Underneath Justin (right) & I (the other guy) posed for a dual-selfie with our paintings.

I was also the only artist to put up an artist statement, which gives me the impression that’s something only college students do. Good thing I took it seriously, read it yourself!

They may not be the last, but these three paintings are a series representing my fears of losing my fantastic hair, and everything that might come of my life as a result. My first painting, “Cult of Sanctuary,” depicts a bald representation of myself seeking to soothe the cold void on my cranium with soulful readings under a warm candlelight. “The Omen” forebodes complete annihilation of all things wonderful on my scalp and living as a blue humanoid in a cold forest. Finally, “Corporate Casual” shows my deep fear of having no direction from my lack of hair, and resorting to people pleasing and big business to consider my life fulfilled. Though today I may splendor in the blessing that is, the potential to lose it reminds me to savor every moment (to which I remember).

Underneath my statement I planted a little stand with business cards! (you can tell which painting is my favorite)

BusinessCard

I feel like such an aspiring entrepreneurial artist-man.

Everyone else put their cellphone numbers, which I was hesitant about. Telephone communication is rather off-putting to me, it’s rather dividing from where you presently are to talk to someone way over somewhere else. I also have instinctual apprehension because the internet is like the world-wide billboard (though a sandwich shop isn’t quite the same). At least when you’re reading, you’re reading something right there. BUT I’ll totally talk to you if it’s necessary. Shoot me an email, we’ll talk. We all make sacrifices in life, that is one of mine!

BY THE WAY…

I took a break from that animation to make some more progress on this fine, lovely…

Touched up “The Omen.” The apocalypse scene is clearer and the hand is more defined.

That’s cool ‘n all, but something new to see would be fun, rye?

I happen to be a busboy at The Corner Pub in Flanders, and The Corner Pub happens to have a chalkboard in the bathroom – AND CHALK! So here’s a good sample of what some guys have been peeing to lately.

There came a point where people would draw phalluses with their finger or write obscenities, and my boss would be inclined to erase it. Or it would just get erased because reasons. I figured “Maybe a wall of demons isn’t everyone’s cup of tea…” So I tried to compromise and make friendlier pictures. Note- tried.

Good effort, I thought. But some got erased the next day anyway, so I started to not care again.

A little note for your future biography of me – these chalk drawings showed me how simple it is to make a whole picture with just a few colors and varying intensity. This eventually led to finally trying out full paintings.

So it begins…

To celebrate my first blog post, here’re my recent paintings:

“Cult of Sanctuary” (acrylic 20″x16″)

The Omen (acrylic 16″x12″)

This second one may still be drying as I’m writing this post.

I plan on using this blog to show some artwork, doodles, talk about convoluted theories, occasionally spill some dirt on upcoming projects, etc. Well timed with the start of this blog is my newfound interest in painting, and it’s been a blast so far.

I was most motivated after discovering the work of Zdzislaw Beksinski. He has a way of getting under your skin with an elegant atmosphere. So deliciously hellish. Check it out.

That’s all for now.
