It has taken me some time to self educate myself about art and design. For many years I have continued to improve by working with many known talented artists, and I will continue perfecting my work until the day I die. Its something in my blood. A gift that has shown itself through my hands.
Timeline of my talent:
1988 started to really become interested in drawing through inspiration from my late Unce John.
88-92 continued to grow with creativity, idea, and admirality for cartoon and street art.(dabbled in the basics of colored pencils, and design markers, blackbooks, and small use of aerosols.)
92-93 really overtaken by the desire to acquire a name and skills in the artform of graffitti.
Late 93 I attempted my first large scale mural at my elementry school as a graduating class project.
1994 was painting with local friends, and perfecting my art book, and can control skills.
