Inspire the TRIBE Art x Quick Sketch

"daydreaming and I'm thinking of you..."
the moment inspiration hits (on a post-it at work lol) vs. the final product
Inspire the Tribe.

What's in a word?
anything that rouses you to feel
to move,
stimulates you to create,
seek more,
aim higher,
to be greater,
to elevate
it awakens something in you
a desire to be present
to be here
a breath of fresh air
when you didn't even know you had stopped breathing
Inspire the Tribe.

Inspire the TRIBE takes Artechouse DC

"unfortunately, no one can be told what the matrix is. you have to see it for yourself."
Yesterday I was finally able to check out Artechouse, a new interactive exhibit to DC. I say "finally" (it was less than a week after the grand opening) because I had spent hours scouring through the tagged photos from the exhibit's instagram (@Artechouse) with each picture being better than the last. Excited is an understatement! And I must say... it didn't disappoint.
The tickets allow you access to the exhibit for an hour, although we were allowed in a little early, so we were able to make greater use of our time. There were just the right amount of people - not overly crowded, pretty chill group and no real photo bombs (*praise hands*).
Now that I know what to expect, I'm going to check out the exhibit again soon and see if there's anything that I missed.
Art makes the world go 'round.

thoughts on a plane:
the landing is always crazy for me.
it just hits
and you smooth it out from there...
feels very much like life

Musings: 5/18/17

so many feelings.
and yet,
I don't know how to feel.
been feeling overwhelmed with....
desire for something more.
something to crash land in my lap and scream, "HERE I AM!"
on hold seems to be a lingering state
the change begins with me but I'm frozen in fear of what's behind curtain number 1
when did I become so
responsible sounds better
but I know what it is
growth doesn't come from standing still.

We Work Creator Awards 2017 x Inspire The TRIBE

The Inaugural We Work Creator Awards was my first time vending. I'm a painter first, so to be in a venue without my paintings felt a little... strange. I also didn't advertise that I'd be vending this night so every face that I came into contact with was a new one. I have really grown to love throwing myself in to uncomfortable  unfamiliar situations in an effort to push myself out of my comfort zone.
The night was great. There were thousands in attendance, a much bigger audience than I'd ever had at any of my previous shows. The cause was spectacular, over 1.5M in grants was given out to 25 entrepreneurs, and the love was REAL. I love connecting with people. I love when people connect with something I've created with my own two hands. There's something so surreal about that, still, to this day.
I've said it before and I'll say it again... rediscovering my love of art changed my life. I can't wait to see where this journey takes me in the next couple of months, years and so on.
Thank you so much to We Work for scouting me out and inviting me to be a part of such a cool night.
