Man, it has once again been a while. Let’s just call it a temporary hiatus that may swerve and vary depending on my living situation in the present.
Lately, I have been so split into different ideas, creative outlets, and work.
Honestly though, I’m really loving it. I have never been so focused on things that I enjoy, and never learned so much about life, business, and art. I know life is going in the right direction now, I’m just hoping I can make my dreams a reality. In the time of covid, it’s especially difficult to start a small business, and have plans to start a business revolving around art sales.
Working at the antique shop though, has given me the ability to really get creative, find objects that would normally lay in a wasteland of things, and create something new and fresh out of the last persons trash. I may not be the best salesperson, but I certainly can bring a unique skillset to the table. I just need to find the people that understand what it is that all of this means to me. As far as that goes, I think I’m on the right track.
My current acrylic project is a pair of anti covid Reeboks, and I’m actually really excited to see how they turn out, an on going project that I’m working on are painted vinyl records, and I’m also working on painting a saw blade sign for a local business. I’m hoping to get some of my up cycled original pieces completely finished so I can start up a shop, just for artsy things, and hope that people like my stuff.
My problem has always been marketing and social media, so I’m hoping that I can improve that more naturally, rather than forcing myself into something that deters me from the parts of the job that I truly enjoy.
Anyway thanks for being here, and reading through my life, as sporadic and crazy as it may be. Here’s to new adventures, and blossoming creativity. Let’s bring art back to the area of importance that it should be.
It’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot actually, maybe I’ll write a whole post about the implications of these tumultuous times, and my view of the necessity of expression during said times.
Here are a few photos of the shoes I’m working on, unfortunately I don’t have any proper photos of the vinyls yet, but stay tuned for those!
