    Slingin your art is soooo sick, I would love to see where your stream of consciousness would take a mechanical/steam punk theme. I might have to hit you up eventually for somethin to hang in my vapor lab :D (if I can afford your awesomeness :bowdown: )

    Please keep the pics coming! :rockon: :rockon:

    Thanks Deja, yeah I actually do think of my stuff as abstract surreal dream-scapes! Nice eye. Places you've…. been…. at some point... waking, or asleep, lucid or not. I think of it as painting past the cobwebs.

    Music + the good Medicine help with assimilating it all into a cohesive vision. To be honest, music is what drives all of my work. In the studio I always have headphones in bumpin so pound my fiancé has to come and grab my arm to get my attention hah. I travel to music festivals a couple times a year and paint live all weekend alongside 4 or 5 other painters, and we setup next to the stage, and just mob HARD. We usually will build a gallery for anyone to walk through, all with original, visionary, and abstract-surreal work just as an installation. The people love it, and we usually can make some $, but I just go to create. I never was a hustler. If you like my work, come say what up, Im not gonna walk through campsites anymore at my age hah.

    Here we are all setup rollin 8 deep at Umphrees McGee this year during SummerCamp Music Festival

    Keep it up man, you sound like a great guy with a fantastic vision. You're dreamscapes seem very familiar and close to my heart, yet distant and hard to focus on. Very much a snapshot from a dream. 10/10!

    Thank you both, glad yall dig!

    Stay tuned, I will be giving away a print of this piece to the person who supplies me with the DOPEST picture of vapor.
    [​IMG]

    I am planning on painting a vapor inspired piece and wanna see if yall can snap some sick shots of vapor swirling around, or floating in the sun in your living room, or billowing out of your face hah.

    I will create another thread for these photos, but until I speak with a mod I wont take it any further.

    Go to the contest staging section and start it there. Once it gets approved you can roll with it.

    Though the style is different, the content (cosmic dreamer) reminds me of both Lovecraft and Jack Kirby's 'cosmic' work. The face could even be the Surfer.

    They're (all) fantastic.

    Please keep the thread updated a bit more and let us see how you get on with the piece you've just started.

    Do you have any other websites/Instagram pages with your art on??

    Stunning.
