AOC2: 4 Elements after thoughts......
Back at the Blag! Well AOC 2 was a major success!! My goodness how the Lord is so Good!
God really blessed me this past Saturday. The show was awesome and had many new contributing artists as well as some ill hip-hop and other talented performers. My set up was humble but people came to have caricatures drawn of them. I had such a long line I didn't notice how many customers I had! I sat in a chair almost all 4 hours of the show! Man my back hurt!
I can't describe to you the feeling that I got after drawing the people at the show. Unlike at my former job at Six Flags, I received no rejection and people were so respectful! All my friends who were showing art and performing that night all wanted a caricature too! It was so much fun. As well as I got a request for a print of my hip-hop illustration that I was working on for the show. This all after a prayer from a friend I met at the Six Flags in 2006. Also I discovered that I was credited as one of the founders of Art of the City with my boys Sherwin, Anthony, Nick, and Hope who I met via myspace.com and is Assoc. Pastor of City 242 church who houses the art shows. The picture of me with the couple is actually Pastor Scott and his wife Mrs. Mulvey. I've been praising Jesus all and thanking him all weekend and church on Sunday was so much more sweeter! I've been struggling this whole month after gettting laid off. I now have so much confidence in my talent and I know that things are looking up in this year of New beginings! Mad thanks to my new friends Virgil and Lewis for these pics. Thank you so much Lord for this great blessing and proving your word to be true! Let me drop a shout out to the Earthtones for rocking it out at AOC!!! The show will be back in 3 months so you all gotta come see the madness and the talent that the North Bay Brings!!! God is good all the time!!!
