My Bio
Hey, what's up?

About me: I am Black/African-American and Christian.
I am 25 years old.
My art mostly consists of digital but I do some traditional art, literature and rap as well. My main genres of specialty are sci-fi, architecture/landscape and anthro. I do some conceptual works or people on the side as well.

I have a strong passion for art, so a lot of it I do for enjoyment, but additionally, I believe that art should be a medium of escape from the stressful work-schedules, decision-making, and drama which is real life. With that said, I realize that art is one of the only venues to free your imagination like a dream. Plus, it always helps to add a little humor which is why I will bring out my inner child with anthro and draw bears stepping onto a dance floor or a crocodile about to be arrested. I promise that most of the art I will provide is imagery that you're not going to see anywhere else. (Sci-Fi and Landscape included)

To me, it's rather disappointing most people don't go this direction and illustrate mainstream pop culture fanart, anime, still life, realism, or simple people posing in some type of natural environment. These are genres where if you don't see one of the subjects nearly everyday in real life, you've seen a large percentage of artists already do it.
My art wants to be art that takes you new places, puts you in the front seat of new perspective, and plays around with possibilty.

Regardless of what I disapproved of earlier, I still believe it's important to do what's in your heart, making sure you express yourself just as long as you don't intentionally hurt/offend anyone in the process and as long as you're taking care of responsibility. (Keep those grades up!)

So if fanart/anime makes you happy and you're a hobbyist like me, have fun. =)

If you got any questions about me, my beliefs, or my art, or just wanna talk-- feel free to note me PLEASE! I appreciate every watcher and comment!

-My blog is dedicated to one of my favorite venues of expression, written art, music and performance, RAPPING. Here you will find tutorials that can strengthen your poetic/rhyming and rapping capabilities, editorials about the subjects of hip-hop rap, links to music and quality artists...and more.
Are you:
- Curious or Interested in rapping or the music form?
- An Unbeliever or Hater in the rap genre?

Do you know how much there is to learn about rap regarding technique, innovation, interpretation, delivery, and just plain writing and rhyming?

Check out my blog Prestoverse below! And read a post or two. You very well might like it and develop a new appreciation/understanding of rap and some of the "unheard-of" artists out there.

Okay, I confess, this journal is long overdue. I wrote this back in May of this year when Eclipse just launched, when the scale of the Coronavirus was just starting to sink in. But better late than never. Whenever someone replied back to me in the forums months after the fact, I always appreciated it even if I had long forgotten the subject. Regarding Eclipse: I loathe it and no, after 3 months of use it has never grown on me. I had other criticisms about dA, but Eclipse alone has nearly killed my interest in this site. Though I figure the people who have wanted to leave are probably already gone, I'll still share this link for anyone contemplating a new art home: On Coronavirus: I know the anxieties about the coronavirus are still alive and well, regardless of almost everything reopening. There’s not enough comfort to enjoy the amenities that are available, and those who do are probably met with forms of disdain and resentfulness by those who understandably want to minimize the

Hey everyone-- Big News! My book Jevoa the Adaptor was just accepted by a publisher and I have been offered my first contract :excited: So I'm doing my due-diligence in reading the terms and conditions and looking towards hiring a lawyer/attorney so I can attain a complete understanding of the fine print. It's looking good so far! If there are no red flags revealed and I do decide to pursue this opportunity, I'll definitely be blogging about it here. ____________________ Oh, and I know you're all probably tired of hearing about this. But due to the outbreak, I now have the pleasure of getting to work from home for the first time. I love i

In the past, you were asking about the use of "negative space."  I recently saw something on the internet -- a logo seen on hats and t-shirts (sold by Cafe Press) which supposedly said, "Atheist."  I couldn't figure the symbolism out, until I considered negative space.  Visit my Deviant Art page and see my solution.
