In honor of Prince’s birthday, I decided to create a painting inspired by the 1999 time period. I listen to Prince while creating my personal artwork and his music helps to fuel my creativity.
Happy 61st Birthday Prince!
I’ve been meaning to post this earlier, but been busy knocking out commissions and working on my indie comic magazine. I have 3 pieces of artwork on display at the Generations Art Exhibit which is currently running now through Monday, October 29. Everyone’s artwork on display can be seen at Legacy Commons and Palmdale Playhouse.
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!

This year one of my friends nominated me for the Black and White Photo Challenge. The challenge rules were; Black and White pictures from your own life without people, pets, or explanation for 7 days. If was fun to be creative through photography. The 7th day, I had to add a little color since it was a Tribute to Prince. Here the photos I took for the challenge. I hope you enjoy them.
Starting September 22 through November 6, I will have 3 pieces of artwork on display at the Generations Art Exhibit. The exhibit is being held at the Palmdale Playhouse, 38334 10th Street East, Palmdale, CA 93550.
