To open yourself like you did is awesome. Eight years ago I went through a life threatening surgery. I almost died and came from that experience feeling that something was missing from my life….it was ART. I discovered that I had a hidden talent. It changed my life and now I can breathe…Thank you! Reply Emmet D April 27, 2019 Unreal, cheer from a psyche nurse here in N.ireland Reply Dianna Diatz April 28, 2019 I have enjoyed watching your videos over the past couple months. You are so energetic, creative, and original in your art work.Overcoming a drug addiction, alcohol and all those challenges and channeling that energy into art is truly an accomplishment. I've personally never had addictions, but I know from friends it is a huge series of challenges. You might think about being an artist/motivational speaker to inspire people with your story.May you continue to flourish in your art, health, family and live with joy!Colorfully yours, Dianna Reply Joseph Youdontneedtoknowmylastnameski May 3, 2019 Can you talk a bit about the construction of that canvas?

If I may express, DO NOT, EVER, SIGN YOUR LIFE AWAY TO ANY CORPORATION. Stick with your commission work. If you do, you will be a slave. Stay free and keep on creating. Reply ingvar sveinsson July 15, 2019 Thanks for being you 🙂 Reply Adrian Lindon July 19, 2019 Great work bro. Very creative, keep it up and dont stop to inspire people through your art. But its kinda hard to believe that you're not a shoe guy…haha! Reply They call me Jay July 20, 2019 Unreal work & Great story to see the come Up as well – Aloooha!! Reply Schizo Tazer July 20, 2019 You have such a respectful and respectable presence. Your color sense is, of course, quite dynamic and eye-popping yet pleasant and soothing and almost whimsical (I'm blabbering here…sorry). You are the antithesis of stressed-out. Artists could learn from you, just based on your karma (and that of your wife as well). Blessings to you, and thank you for your lovely videos. They are a balm for my soul. Reply You Mad Entertainment July 20, 2019 In my case pills saved me but one day it will kill me, it's how it goes. Like you said it's luck. You either find a way to do what you love and get support or you don't. When I did art projects I never had enough money nor the clients could pay what I asked and it wasn't much. Foreigners did wanted to pay but the postage logistics and the business part of it was a pain in the rear. Hated it. Today I think it's somewhat better but it's still stressful. for example I spend time and money to do something then some careless idiot destroys it during shipping and the client gets nothing but also payed for it. So when I don't have a job I don't do art because I can't support my self and the materials I need and when I work I don't have time nor motivation to do art. It's that cursed circle that I hope one day I can break out of. Even tho I am getting old fast so not sure if anything will move my direction even if it does I can;t even put up a presentation or portfolio to start with.

Reply Corey Schmick August 17, 2019 Epic message 10 Hun! I too was addicted to heroin/hard drugs for a number of years, it was anti-life and very dark. I loved what you said about finding good things to be addicted to, couldn't be more spot-on, there cannot be a vacuum in space, you have to replace those addictive tendencies with new things, that's why a lot of people stay addicted, they just try to stop using, that will never work! You have inspired me to start making t-shirts of my artwork! Thanks 10 Hun, you da man, Corey.my artwork- www.coreymichaelschmick.com Reply Therapeutic art August 18, 2019 I've been working on a piece from 9pm lastnight, its 7.30am and I'm still up.
