I love these big bold letters that he uses. I also love his sayings and so again I am pondering the question,”Where do you draw your inspiration from?”
Here is what I have learned.
-passionate about typography and lettering
-creates every weekday
-he sells on Creative Market
-he has a love of community like connecting with other artists
-yes he really goes out and helps youth by talking to them
-he seems an all around humble person and it shows with the messages he delivers in every art piece he creates.
I know that I have shown you artists from across the line but its for two good reasons. You need to tell your story as an artist and that means telling your story-your values-your hope-dreams-purpose and fill in the blank.
Oh and you have to practice and draw inspiration from the world around you. Doing what you love is a fabulous way to start.
