It's really found everywhere: on traditional canvases, t-shirts or other articles of clothing, the techniques in how chefs prepare the food and even on advertisements and commercials and the art doesn't end there. Actions we perform, whether its singing, dancing, or executing a moving speech to the masses, it's considered a work of art. We express our emotions, our beliefs in a nonverbal ploy to get messages across. It's incomprehensible on how some people disregard art as one of the important staples of communication. It's even used in political propaganda to sway people in with their beliefs.

It's very helpful to use water color as a base, then filling in details with color pencils.

Sometimes inspiration strikes where you least expect it. This one was during listening to Wild Duck on tape.

A new take on our little Ariel. I was inspired by Tim Burton and I thought everything needs a fresh look on it why not our classic Disney princess.

Everyday everyone creates art in some way, shape, or form. We all may not be aware that we are doing it but with a simple stroke of the pen or even singing along with your favorite song you are creating art. Granted this may not be the most profound piece of art work but it is still art. Art influences our movements and our thoughts. We can express our anger, love, or sadness with more than just our self but with the world. The strongest power we all posses is art. It gets those feelings that you can't quite put your finger on out and into a coherent thought. Art is so much more than what we think it is. There are painters and writers and lyrics and dancers and actors and than there is the average Joe who all have some sort of contribution to art. The average Joe may doodle a little sketch that was in his head or hum a little tune that was stuck inside his brain all day without ever thinking twice about it. What average Joe just did was create a little piece of art, a little piece of him. Art is with us when we dream. It is the movie our brain creates that the world will never see but thoughts and creations of splendor that come to you in these dreams. They are our souls way of releasing emotions. It is our way of expressing our subconscious. It is our unpublished artwork. Art is the with us all.
