Artwork In The Works


Over the past two weeks, I’ve experimented with some different ideas. Mainly, I wanted to incorporate typography and shadowing into my work. Nothing too crazy, but just adding some depth and words to some mandala art.

New Art: A New York State Of Mind

New York State

Sometimes when creating art, I struggle for ideas. But then something clicks. Something in the back of my mind just says try this.

Living in the great state of New York, this idea was rather obvious. I thought, why not add a little mandala art to the Empire State?

The New York State Of Mind

I don’t think you have to live in New York to have that state of mind that motivates you to experiment. To create what you feel. It really is a state of mind.

Go. Create. Express yourself and don’t stop.

Of course, if you need a little inspiration, here’s some Billy Joel to help you get in the mood:

The Simplicity Of Black And White Art


Creativity isn’t static. It’s constantly evolving just as we are.

Creativity is the one thing that separates us from all other living things.

It’s our purpose. Everything came from an idea. A creative spark. When I draw, I rarely add color to my designs. There is a purity to black and white. The monochrome has a power.

Regardless of how intricate a design becomes, there is simplicity. That is what I’m searching for and aim to create.
