"That engine took me about a week to finish using a 3mm pencil and magnifying glass."

"I saw this pic from the 50’s in a magazine and was immediately taken in by it. It’s my favorite piece so far because of the amount of detail, especially in the engine and hubcaps."

🖋 Artist's bio

I spent most of the years from 1998 to now in prison, not having a clue as to what I wanted to be when I grew up. In 2015 I was sent to the medium at Forrest City, and they had the best art program I had ever seen. Not only did they have guys who knew what they were doing to teach us, but they also gave us some basic tools to get started (Thanks Mr. Wilder). It wasn’t long before a teaching position opened up and I took the beginners’ class. That’s when I learned that the best way to learn a subject is to teach it to someone else. I’m mainly a graphite guy, but I dabble with colors when the mood hits. Becoming a serious artist and trying to master my has helped me become someone I can be proud of, and made it so I could heal some of the wounds I’ve inflicted along the way. If anyone can say that they have been redeemed by art it’s me. .
