Like what you see A LOT?

Buy a print and have it for KEEPS.

Thanks so much for the support, all money earned goes towards getting you more of my art that YOU want to see and buy.

I think this quote by Pear S. Buck sums up who I am perfectly....

“The truly creative mind in any field is no more than this: A human creature born abnormally, inhumanly sensitive. To him... a touch is a blow, a sound is a noise, a misfortune is a tragedy, a joy is an ecstasy, a friend is a lover, a lover is a god, and failure is death. Add to this cruelly delicate organism the overpowering necessity to create, create, create -- so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or buildings or something of meaning, his very breath is cut off from him. He must create, must pour out creation. By some strange, unknown, inward urgency he is not really alive unless he is creating.”

That is who I am. I am my art. My blood is the ink. The ink is my blood. There is no life for me without art. It is my true reason for living, as well as it is the only way I know how to survive it.
I can't do this anymore....

I CAN'T keep living the way I have been. I am about to leave my over stressful job. In the process losing benefits and I don't have a new job lined up yet. I can't find anything that will provide benefits, or pay enough for me to afford health care.

I have LOTS of talents, it's not that art is the only thing I can do. In fact the current job I'll be leaving is in the medical field. It pays amazing, and great benefits, 401 K, etc... so I know I've been lucky to have that. I KNOW I'm not fucked....

But, what I CAN'T keep doing is sacrificing my SANITY, HEALTH, and HAPPINESS just to pay bills and be miserable. My misery only adds to my diminishing health.

Fuck. This.

I want to be happy. I want to do art, or SOMETHING creative and fulfilling for ONCE in my life. I am tired of doing the things everyone else just RESIGNS themself to do for the rest of their lives, sacrificing their dreams for the status quo....

NO. Not me. Never will I do that.
Never will I be happy if I do that.
And it would kill me if I tried.
It's already killing me. 

I am not weak, and I will not let the system kill me.


I need you. I need your help, so that I can be happy with my life again. I will not sit here wishing for a better life. I am going to find it. Or make it. I am reaching out so that if anyone has ANY way to help me. PLEASE. Message me. I don't care if maybe I have to think about moving somewhere. Or if I have to give up the life I've been leading because I'm already stripped to the bone with how I'm living now. I am tired of this. I need a new beginning.

This autumn, I am turning over a new leaf, and it will be brighter and far more colourful than the others.

If you have some way I can make a living with my art, writing, modelling, acting, singing, or other creative things.....

PLEASE. PLEASE step forward and help me. My artistic family.... I need you.
