abc dream

I love this illustrated book by Kim Krans. I found it at Anthropologie a few months ago and thought it was amazing. I wanted to run to the studio and start making pencil drawings. The idea is simple, a book about the alphabet. The drawings on the other hand are very clever and well executed. A for awesome.

I hope I can get this where it needs to go. Love this little painting and the reason it was made.

Just finished, the star of southern Louisiana. One of my favorites! I should have my site updated soon with high quality photos.

if money did not matter

Yesterday was my last day of work at my full time job. Enough was enough. It is one of the biggest decisions I have ever made. I did not quit because I have found a new job. I quit to be a painter. An artist. I still have my part time bar tending gig, but 40 hours a week now belongs to me and my painting. It's pretty crazy. I am writing this now because today was to be my first studio day as my full time job. I have been so sick today that I have hardly left my bed. Coincidence?
The decision was to be happy. The decision was to work my ass off and just make enough money doing something that has become stale, or struggle as an artist and see what happens. I am going to see what happens. 
This video was sent to me via facebook about a month ago and I have watched it a million times since. It put me over the edge along with a few other little things, little things I took as signs that I need to do this. 
Thank you.
