About to Embark on Journee (I spelled it like that accidentally when i was tripping therefore the title will stay)
So I did this piece around 2001 which was the first time i did acid (i think). Anyways I added some finishing touches to it about 2 weeks ago because everytime i would look back to it seemed as if something was missing.Besides that and im pretty sure i have a minor case of OCD or you can just call me a perfectionist/genius.
I had got back from a long eventful evening and in the struggle to keep my brother awake to talk shit with me he ended up going to sleep but leaving me inspired to draw something of my own after him showing me something he was working on.I stayed up to actually start and finish what i thought was gonna be a never ending drawing at the time. As a matter of fact i stayed up til 11:30am and had even got a chance to catch back to back episodes of Teletubbies which by the way that show makes perfect sense when youre tripping.
Im not one to advocate the usage of psychedllics for the sake of creativity.I love psychedellic pieces but I can honestly say that theres about 3 pieces that ive been under that type of influence and creating “art” was never the intention when i did them.Honestly if im tripping out like that i rather use that time to seek adventures therefore I dont feel the urge to sit down and draw. I think its retarded when people automatically assume that one would have to be on drugs to create or come up with innovative perspectives.Im not knocking the usage of it but personally i think its sad because it seems like people have lost faith in themselves and that only through drugs it is safe for them to express their inner child/creative side or achieve greatness..Shit, im the type of person that will tell you that if you give me 2months of nonstop practice I could have beat Jordan in his prime in a one on one game.Even if its just me saying it .Please believe that i will push as hard in that direction to make my victory come true or atleast give him a game worth talking about. I know that sounds crazy but i think its even crazier when people are given the open lane to push the boundaries and open up minds for something new yet they do absolutely nothing about it but go with the current. Now that i got that off my chest. Rest in Peace Jim Henson and Bob Ross because those were my 2 biggest influences when I was a little kid that had no idea what “Art” was about,I just liked drawing. http://rokthespot.com/blog/
