"As far as I know, the photo I took this from is the only existing picture of my grandmother that died soon after I was born. My father keeps on me about using color (especially point, but no thanks. I’ll stick with my no-mess-making-pencils!) so, I did this for his birthday. Now I’ve just gotta find a new pink pencil!"

🖋 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 art 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. .
