Remembering my life hero today! Prince has had a profound impact on my life in so many ways. When creating my personal artwork or working on commissions, Prince is a huge part of my creative process. Listening to his music helps to fuel my creativity. I remember discovering his music during Junior High School. The Controversy Album was out at that time. I listened to it and has hooked instantly to his purple punk funk music. I’m definitely blessed to have seen him in concert many manny times!
This year I have an Art Gallery Exhibit currently running and couldn’t think of a better exclusive piece to create than the combination of comic books and Prince, two of my favorite influences in life. Here is one version of Partyman 2.0 created in honor of my life hero!
Happy 60th Birthday Prince!

Here’s is a birthday commission I recently finished up. It was fun doing something a little different and yet the same. One of my favorite things when creating art is helping clients to celebrate their life through art.
