With just three days away from the end of our campaign. I know in my soul we can hit this goal. Despite all the things I have been told and have seen, about starting a crowdfunding campaign.
I refuse to believe that I have to be famous, part of a huge corporation or hire people to reach my goal.

After all, wasn’t Kickstarter developed to help us who are building something from nothing?

Those of us who spent every dime to create art, prototypes and endless nights of painting,clean and photographing our work, so that it maybe presentable.
Spending every waking moment to promote our work in hopes of funding. Going without all to prove that this is not a fly by night idea! This is our dreams, our reality, our oxygen.

As creatives, each thing we do is filled with our soul, our blood, our tears and our lives.

We freely give our life away to create art for ourselves and for others.

Every second, minute, hour, day, month and year of our life is poured into what many will come to admire for years to come. These are our children!

I hope all of you feel it too, this is why I can’t let this die! I ask you to please pass this project along, give what you can and prove that we stand together and support indie everything.

Give love to those who tirelessly spend every waking moment living their passion.

I love when people underestimate me and my abilities.  

Thinking they know my story, while I’m still writing it!

While they live their lives only to fit in.
I live my life to the fullest! 
Creating my own future and loving the process. 

Never allow the small minds of negative people to rent space in your mind or soul. 

Remember, no one has to respect or understand your hustle, but you!

The year is starting off to be very fun and productive.
I have been working on so much art and new ideas come into play. One of the biggest things I am excited about, is that I finally illustrated my first book.
The book was written by my girlfriend Justine DeNicola.

It make me really proud to share this first with her. Her first book along with my art through out it.
The book is a children’s book, details soon to follow.
It was a great project step by step. To hear the excitement in Justine’s voice as she witness the artwork in progress and the finished layout.
Now the project is about to head off to get printed.
Along with that project, I have been working hard on branding with a great friend of mine. It feels good when you surround yourself with positive and supportive people.
One of the things about helping and being help to achieve dreams and goals is the sense of accomplishment.
I am developing a new habit. (for lack of a better reference) I am going green with my art work. Meaning, I am digging through all my old sketch books and reworking ideas. If you’re a artist (singer, writer, sculptor, illustrator,etc..) I suggest giving this exercise a shot. It’s like looking through an old photo album of your life. It will jog old memories and mindsets,that are a reflection of your life.
It will also seem somewhat fresh to breath new life into old/forgotten ideas.
I will post more about the book Justine and I worked on as well as a new art concept soon.
Stay positive and creative
