When did you first start doing art?
I have been doodling on the sides of my school work since I can remember. I would finish the assignment as fast as I could, so that I would have enough time to make a cool drawing on the back side of the paper.
How does your art work represent you?
Sometimes I feel like once the idea leaves my mind and travels through me to the brush and off onto the canvas, it almost becomes its own entity. But really i think it well represents the fun and vibrant ways my mind tends to see things.
Is there a message you are trying to portray through your creations?
If there was any sort of message i am trying to relay in my art, it's to have fun! Smile more and always try to find a new way to look at something if you can.
How has your art transformed since you began?
My art has done some serious growth over the past few years. I try to always accept new paint ideas, and push different styles to see what might happen. I'm always stoked on the newest project I finish, so I know I'm happy with my work. All i try to do is make sure i get a bigger high from the next one.
If you could paint on anything, what would it be?
If I could paint anywhere, it would have to be on cars. I just love the way they're usually always going somewhere. It's a nice amount of surface to play around with, and there are so many to paint. So i know I'll never run out of the ability to keep painting.
What advice might you give to someone in pursuit of their passions?
My advice is to never lose sight of why you do what you do, and stay hungry for your passions. Also, in the great words of Jake the dog, "dude, sucking at something is the first step towards being sorta good at something".
What is your favorite quote?
"Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal".
If you were stranded on a deserted island and could only bring 3 things (aside from survival gear), what would you bring?
I would bring 3 friends, so we could all take a much needed vacation from this job we call 'society'.
What do you do to become inspired?
I become inspired by talking to people and hearing their stories, from cartoons of all kinds, and the ever-changing natural environment we are surrounded by.
Who are your current influences?
My current influences come from local and international. Local, hands down being Keshia Q for her structure and attention to process. I've learned so much from her already. Patrick Ennis for his darker takes on scenery and space scape. Also, international artists such as Totem2 and Rasko1, and Har0w always kills it with DBZ cherecters.
If people want to see more of your work, where could they find it?
If people want to see more of my art I would direct them straight at me, so that way I can meet them and figure out what is in their mind that they want to see created. My aim is to give everyone their own piece that makes them happy. People can find me on Facebook and Instagram, as well as at random shows and events; painting live or on people.
