I haven't really posted on here about my life (other than artwork related stuff) or personal thoughts in several years, but I feel like it's a good place to start doing it again.
I just found out my younger brother was diagnosed with something pretty serious and it's caused me (again) to take a strong look at my life. Things are quite different now and I've done a great deal of "growing up" in the past 5 years. I'm so grateful to God and Jesus Christ for allowing me to finally flourish with my art talent in a way that myself and my family are taken care of and for giving me with a healthy son (who is now 13 months old).
When I think about famous people like Paul Walker (who I've never met and I wasn't a fan of his movies) and someone famous who was a bigger impact to me, Michael Jackson (who's death eerily occurred on the same year as the lowest point in my life and caused me to think about my own) , I realize we're only on this planet for a brief period of time. And with that small window of time, will you realize what your life's calling truly is?
I think I've realized mine as not only an artist but as a father, husband and a brother. It's both exciting and scary at the same time. And I still have a ways to go...
