As a full time artist having started laxartist.com 20 years ago.
Having done everything there is to when it comes to Art. there is still so much to learn and to discover. My goal is to share my knowledge and my passion onto future artist. We are all artist.
Sketches, logos, paintings, booth/ gallery shows, uniforms, clothing lines, apparel, sports wax, writer, producer, illustration, short stories, scripts ...
All of the above have one thing in common, they all started with imagination (to make an image or picture in our minds). Turning a creative idea into a simple sketch in a journal.
All of my students are asked to have just 2 things to start with, a pencil and a journal, everything else is a bonus.
