Some changes in life are just...hard to believe. But this is certainly one of the biggest accomplishments that I've made in my life. 
Last Sunday, I got my Bachelor's of Art Degree in Geography with a Minor in Geographic Information Systems with a 3.3 average GPA. And I'm done with school; sometimes I didn't know how I was going to make it past each semester--when this past one just required 25 pages of paper written from me plus final exams. Now I'm out to find a career now. I don't know where I'm going, what kind of jobs that I will pick up, or where this degree takes me, but I certainly hope I go far, far away with it and run.

Other than that, as you can assume, life has been mad busy, mostly studying and researching (and complimentary graduation dinners), but thank God all that's over. However, a good month ago, I got a chance to shine at a Talent Show held for the church/community where I reluctantly performed "Overriding the System" (old song--I really need to produce my newer ones), but despite the audience having a good proportion of elders, adults, country/pop/rock listeners and other people outside the target audience, they loved it! :w00t: I even received a comment from a grandparent saying "I didn't think I liked rap!"--Well, ya do now! :rofl:

So, now it's like summer vacation all over again. I think I've already gotten into the flow of being productive lately. Exercising, reading, writing, drawing/painting, chores/cleaning, cooking, on top of applying for jobs (just not all in the same day :XD:). I got time to work on art, let's hope I can clock some much needed submissions soon. :O_o: Outside of that, I covered the most important parts. Thanks for reading =)

Hey, what's up?


GENERAL:
About me: I am Black/African-American and Christian.
I am 21 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.

BELIEFS:
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:
-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.
