About MeCommissions, collaborations and personal projects. I'm a goof ball and I def don't take things too seriously it depends on what needs to seriously be considered as important.
At this stage in my pretty crazy life thus far. I normally fly solo and I'm not what i once used to be, out in the scene, knowing the scene and slightly being seen lol living on the edge.
I spend most of my time doing what I did most of the time as a youngster which is to lay down the ink pushing it or pulling it never charcoal or lead and don't ask why pls you won't understand. Along comes paint, spraypaint or whatever medium that works. Using a variety of styles I picked up on and combining it into my own. Working the basic hard line and feeding off of that line to blend shadows, shades, color tones and highlighter. Often smearing liquid gel or using permanent ink to contrast what's there in a bold way! I like it loud with subtle soft areas and it always goes in stages upon layers and layers of any particular ink in the end if I'm careful it would be worth the while and I will forget how much time actually went into a certain piece.
Reason why I'm saying all this is because if anyone here at MM has any ideas on a project, job, assignment or an event that you feel my art could be apart of? Please feel free to contact me and we can make a plan. No fee's on my side just my contribution towards whatever the layout, cause, in effect shall be. (A Reminder for anyone that has a thought about obtaining the original piece for your own personal possession? donations will gladly be accepted or for a trade of a custom pose/photos for the original art but we agree that if anything I may be permitted to sell of prints # and signed )
The Evolution of my art continues on a daily basis through sight, being expressive through someone else in a figure or portraiture that begins with being inspired. A little attitude that conveys confidence more so then my arrogance will take me directly into a perception that processes into the early stages with my interpretation, long story short or excuse me long story shorter. Ha! creating with complete devotion everything falls into place (sometimes)and most times if all goes well I will get into this skill set level that includes enormous amounts of passion! that it leaves me being somewhat blinded as I get through the rough stages of adding depth by using blurred visions to focus on the dark and lit areas that did not sound at all as being sensible correct but I promise it does and it's how I get dead on instead of way off with a person's recognition. Identifying the individual without any doubt in my art. Getting past this stage that had me in a ton of times lose hella interest that the piece goes on hold indefinitely. What can I SAY but to hope that I reach the place that me and a whole lot of folks will call getting in "The Zone"! Its where I aim to be all the the time before hitting the stage with lots of boring tediousness of a repetitious mark or marks I call staining the paper or depending on what? The repetitive movements of back and forth, push n pull and flaring out from hard to lite pressure of the pen and ink. What keeps my interest high without giving ? Is seeing it come to life before my very eyes so to speak and In a smooth rhythm we reach the final stages of detailing and cleaning up the lines, etc. . A sigh of not relief but self satisfaction incurs and then comes contentment. Its finito Senor pablo el guapo! :P Everything else... is added bonus.
note to one's self : Can you read my mind? do you know how I'm feeling? Does it matter at all? With me it does and if you're not sensitive to your work? You are not an artist but I will say this as an excuse for being who I am. I'm Constantly Competing against no one except for myself. When I feel to high and mighty AND comfortable? you then held my hand and took me right back down to HELL!! For I have an Angel on my shoulders BUT! a Devil in my head. - kAsKaDe
