Been over a year since I have last updated or even had the urge to blog about something. I have now graduated college and have been brought into the exciting reality known as “Adulthood”. I now work 40 hours a week, M-F, 8-5, every single day. This schedule does not do justice for an aspiring street artist. It takes time away from what I love and yearn to do. Ideas and quick projects I have in mind that could quickly be done turn into week/month long projects. However, I hate to have excuses. A quote I have come to live by goes, “There is always someone working harder than you”. I take this as constructive criticism. Even though I may not be working the ideal job, this should not be an excuse to discontinue what I love to do. In order to be successful you need to make sacrifices both big and small to make time for what you are passionate about. The passion I have for Street Art burns through every inch of my body. I discovered I had the patience to balance this busy work schedule with a piece I recently completed back in December of 2015. Each night I chipped away, painting small portions of what I believe is the largest piece I’ve completed to this date. It took about 28 hours, the longest I have ever spent on one painting. As I look back at all the work I put into this one piece I can see how far I have come as an artist. I made major improvements in the style and feeling I try to portray to my audience, unveiling what I can and hope to be. This wheat paste was inspired by The Story So Far’s song entitled Framework.
Patience is key. More to come. >:-)
