Thunderstruck

Posted in Uncategorized on October 21, 2009 by starkbot

I always feel like I want to start one of these with some convoluted revelation about the world and what’s around me. No need to go into that now, I think. I realize now that I have an insane gift. A gift that allows thoughts to (usually) seamlessly translate from mind to medium. It also becomes more and more apparent that with every step I take in the direction of artistic creativity, I only get better and better. The funny thing about all of this is that I’m not really even that amazing in my own eyes. Until just recently I thought I was on a crash course with disaster trying to pursue an artistic career. My final thought is conveyed perfectly through the quote on my info page. Stop trying to be someone you’re not and embrace what it is that makes you complete as human being. It can be so many different things, but when the right people tap into the right thing…miracles happen. Simple as that. Goodnight world.

Searching for inspiration

I’m looking to jump up to the spot, artistically speaking, that I was at on my recent travels abroad. I found my “happy place” artistically and I’m excited about where that can take me. I saw a lot of great art and met a lot of talented people on my travels. I feel like, now more than ever, I can take my abilities and flourish without any formal training.

One of the many great people I met was this bloke Stika. Very talented graffiti artist and was part of the Secret Wars ambush on the Ryan Frank piece in London. His blog http://stikarock.blogspot.com/

Here’s a piece from my sketchbook that I really enjoy. I knocked this one out while spending lots of time basking in the sun and drinking 2L bottles of Montenegrin beer in Petrovac.
