GREETINGS + SALUTATIONS, frens!
If you follow me on Instagram, you know it’s been a busy start to 2018 up in here.
One of my goals for this year is just to keep drawing: in the past I’ve allowed a lot of things and people to get in the way of my work and the result is misery. Let me tell y’all something – if you’re creatively driven and folks keep dampening your spirits with their practical advice – pull back for a sec and observe the source. If they’re living the life you want, by all means listen. Ask for advice. But if not – keep moving. They don’t get it.
Just keep doing you. Create no matter what. While I never show everything I create, every week I release at least one new piece of art on my Threadless shop.
Lately my thing seems to be series. The above Lotería is a series of 5×7 drawings that have been in the works since last year. It’s the first card of a few… not too sure where it begins or ends – as you can see, I’ve added some of my favorite stuff to the mix. Because en serio (seriously), how was there not a cup of coffee??
Select tiles are available individually as prints or shirts. If you have one you love, let me know!
I’ve never identified as a geek or nerd of any kind – HOWEVER, I’m one of those folks who light up at the mention of Harry Potter, Hogwarts or any of it’s four Houses. The above Hogwarts crest had been sitting in Sketch form for almost a year, waiting patiently for me to get my shit together. It took me a long time to realize that TIME is a medium that some pieces need before they can be finished. That’s just how it is!
Naturally, I had to make crests for each individual house too:
All of these designs and a few more new prints are available in my Threadless shop: serpenthes.threadless.com
In the next few months, I hope to open up my shop RIGHT HERE on serpenthes.com. I have a ton of original art and one of a kind pieces that need new homes, comrades! As always, thank you for visiting, peepin my work, following me on social media or all of the above. THIS IS HOW I SUPPORT MYSELF… when you like, share, or buy my art you’re allowing me to live my life and create MORE. That’s everything to me and I thank you!
