Planet X 7/15/17

Saturday night was another big night for me, as I presented 2 pieces at the Planet X: All Female Lifestyle Art Show. This being my 2nd show I was looking forward to seeing other female artists present their work. Thank you to everyone who came thru, the love is always appreciated. Also thank you The NYC Grind, Manifesto and the Ladies of Hip Hop for putting on a dope ass event. Can't wait for the next one!!

Trying something new

So sometime last year I bought a stamp making kit and recently tried to get into it. Still a work in progress, but would like to create a series.

Obviously my first project I decided to begin carving a heart. Here's what I've done so far.

For my next stamp what should I make? I'll happily accept suggestions in the comments section.

Update: If you see anything thing you like and would like inquiry on a price please email ObnoxiousCreativity@gmail.com.

Art stings the Mind

I took an art class in Grad School a few years back. We practiced our strokes and created our underpainting. My Professor said this was our chance to paint whatever came to mind. I took my brush and started. It came to me naturally and I worked throughout the whole class. Making sure it was exactly as I pictured in my mind. Then he said "time's up".

The whole class was allowed to walk to around and look at what everyone worked on. Some were unfinished, and at each table my Professor would point out something that stood out. Then they reached my table.

"Now here is something that will keep me up at night. I can't help but question what is going through this person's head". My Professor held it up and in the back of the crowd was a laugh. My own. Strange looks from my classmates, but at that moment I didn't care. I knew I did something that made someone think, and isn't that what art is about? Making other's feel and think something out of the ordinary?

Born during a blizzard

Today I turn 30. I never thought I'd make it to today. Last night I looked back at old pics and videos (thanks Bochinche Boy), and thought about all the good and bad times I have had. All the fights and drama. How despite it all I continue to just laugh at things and keep on going. Did I feel sad, yea, I did. There are things I wish I can have or have done but who knows theres still time (I hope).

I'm 30 years old, jeez.

It's also David Bowie day...couldn't be more appropriate.
