Another sketch done today.

Pat Evans

She's one of the most beautiful people I've ever seen...

artwork in progress

So I decided to go back to using oil pastel. Here's a project that I'm working on inspired by Nicki Minaj. I'm not sure what to do with the background yet... Any thoughts or suggestions?

 I looked at other artists for inspiration and developed my own style, in my late teens early 20s. I fell madly in love with the arts of Frank Morrison, Maurice Evans, Tamara Natalie Madden, Larry Poncho Brown, Justin Bua, and Laurie Cooper. These artists really changed my life.

Here's a rendition that I did back in 2006 ("Air" by Maurice Evans) that I would like to share on my blog. It's one of my art pieces that I'm severely attached to...

I came a long way...

Art is...

"Art is the suitcase of history, carrying the essentials. Art is the life buoy of history. Art is seed, art is memory, art is vaccine."

19 months locs

I know I just posted my 18months but I'm currently on my 19th months locs monthiversary. I recently started washing my hair with Castille soap and wow! Believe the hype people because that soap is amazing. My scalps never felt so healthy and clean before. It's a beautiful thang. I still twist my hair with Honey and flaxseed and I've definitely recognized a lot of growth.

 I can do a ponytail now

I have bangs too.

Well folks that's it for my 19 months locs...I can't believe it's going to be 2 years soon


18 months locs

 My 25th birthday!

So so late with this one. That was 18 months...

Officially love Nicki Minaj

Happy happy day for me finally got a new laptop meaning I can blog again, catch up on reading my favorite blogs, and go back to my regular internet browsing routine. So exciting. I'm now left with $5.24 in my account but it's still a wonderful day 

Life of a temporarily-out-of-cash artist

Hello my dear friends hope all is well. Will start updating my blog more often again. I'm keeping this post short though because I've been very very sick lately and just took something for my sinus so it will be kicking in shortly. 

So just wanted to show signe de vivre and I will be back with the latest.

Have a goodnight!!!
