To stop the sense of being overwhelmed with what you cannot control, invest only in your hold on that which you can be certain of controlling: your sense of self. Be your own consistency among inconsistencies. An actively self-conjured element in a sea of unpredictable elements. Your internal assuredness of you is the direction that […]
There’s a lot of things in the world that get romanticized to a pretty extreme degree, but among those things, I really do think that lions deserve the hype. Sure, gazelles would probably disagree and elephants would probably take lions to Ihop in a football game, but they’re all around just badass gold standard animals. […]
After you’ve been swirling around a nice little cocktail of midnight oil, creative fluid and LED light for long enough, you naturally start to hallucinate about Buddha materializing out of a giant radioactive lotus flower and telling you to “chill out and mediate for a New York second bruh.” The wisest reaction to this cosmic encounter […]
It’s about to get reeeeeeal sketchy up in here, ladies and gentlemen. You know that annoying saying about how you always find something in the very last place that you look? As patronizing as it sounds, I think that applies to more than just the physical things. I’m not trying to get all Matthew Mcconaughey […]

They say that even the Buddha would get pissed off if you poked him three times. I just wonder, what in the hell would possess someone to poke Buddha three times? How bored do you have to be to do that?
If it were possible to create a perfect piece of photo-realistic art just by following a specific recipe, you could bet your firstborn I would monetize that shit. I would guard it more savagely than the Colonel protected his original thirteen herbs and spices. I would start a cold war with entire nations by threatening […]
I really, really want to learn how to fuse 3D depth with 2D acid trips. I’m still studying the basic drawing fundamentals, but the temptation to break rules is really strong. It almost seems like trying to give a chunk of granite the properties of water, but I know the methods are out there and […]
Before I opened up a shop for graphic clothing and accessories, I was considering the cost-benefit ratio of a master plan to starting prohibition all over again just to sell bootleg whiskey. I can understand why people often think twice about taking the plunge into taking art seriously. After all, for a lot of people, “starving” and “artist” […]
