today was a good day. shoutout to everyone who attended the "Zona Rosa" mural celebration in San Jose. I was asked recently by someone if there is any advice I can give to up and coming artists. Yes don't ever bring your kids to a function where you are expected to talk haha. But when you have no choice you gotta do what you gotta do. This was the first time having them around while talking to a crowd of people and I couldn't be more happy in the way they carried themselves. @powwowsanjose @celebratemayfair @schoolatmhp thank you again! 🙏🏽
Dude! Today my Brown Mexican neighbor made me a White Russian and the ice made this. 🙂
when I was 15 I had my first paying job after school (anyone from Fresno remember George Browns!). At the same time I started drawing people's names on paper and would sell cans of paint at school. I would also airbrush shirts for friends in my neighborhood and cut hair. That then turned into screenprinting my own shirts in community college to help get my name around. When I went to art school some of my classmates said that creating art for money was selling out and on top of that most of my teachers said not to use the color black or work in the style that you see today (I have been doing this since '99) so this seriously loled with my head. When I see pictures like this it reminds me where I came from and glad I didn't listen to everyone who said not to do it. ** I also want to add that if you are an educator please don't tell a student of yours to not do something until you truly understand why they are doing it. I can say this after educating students of my own for over 10 years. Here's a look at my cousins collection of things I have made over the past 12 years. ✊🏽🙏🏽✊🏽
My little one. Shes two years and three months old and is catching up to her older brothers fast! I asked her if she wanted to go to the park with the slides and play and she replied "skate park". Let's do it! Shout out to the skaters there for cheering her on. ✊🏽👧🏽💪🏽✊🏽
