I know i left you hanging nearly two years ago... or just like one month shy of two years.
When we last left our young hero artist he was being forcefully hospitalized by policemen from his home.
I ended up going to about 3 months of daily counseling and therapy. Rehabilitation activities, drug screening, therapy sessions, group therapy and so on. All in all it was centering, provided stability and well... it's sort of like a mental and emotional boot camp for life for when people can't trust their reality anymore. Not only gave a bunch of coping skills and so on for life but helped explain what the world and our country and society is, how it's setup, what games we are expected to play and what hoops we are expected to jump through and how to best go about playing them and jumping through them. Lotta tough love stuff.
It's been a long couple of years. I've been pretty responsibly connected to the regional burner, flow, and festival community. I create collaborative, communal projects with others and have been displaying and vending my artwork. My art has gotten considerably more stylized.
I have really sold my soul to art at this point, it is a daily, hourly, constant part of my life that dictates just about everything I do. I have developed a class to teach people how to draw. I understand now the mental relationship between my consciousness, senses, subconsciousness and physical, visual art. I am coming up with activities and practices to help open peoples minds to self communication with their subconscious senses.
Anyways, I have a whole bunch of new large watercolor paintings that i will put up for you.
Why am I back? Well... the older I get and the more I grow professionally, socially, I look at DA and I think a couple of things... me on here is professional suicide. This site is me young, unfiltered, chaotic, raw, immature. Like, DA is the longest record of me growing up that exists. Even deeper and more personal than my Facebook in some ways.
I'm back because in a strange way, I'm more anonymous here. I don't have to worry so much about what I say or post. Not many people are aware of my DA account who know me elsewhere. It's freeing, it's relaxing. I'm not even entirely sure if anybody will even read this.
Anyways, I'm doing great, I will post a bunch of pretty new pictures and you can see the energy channeling and energetic influences that I've been associating with over these past couple of years. I think you'll like em!
Oh, and my name is Crayola now
