Why Bob Ross is one of my heroes

Are you a Bob Ross fan? I am. Big time. Not just for his painting lessons. But also his mindset. You ever see Bob Ross freak out? Heck, if the zombie invasion started, he would have just kept painting. Chill AF. In a zone. He'd even take his mistakes and…

Want to be a good writer?

I'm not a fisherman. But I could still tell you how to get started. You need a fishing pole. And you need a body of water that contains fish. Then you need to bring those pieces together. The same thing with writing. If you want to be a good writer,…

How I lost 20 pounds

Before I write the article, I want to make a few things clear. One - this is NOT going to turn into a health blog. I've turned it into a freestyle blog where I can write about anything I want. This time, I'm writing about something personal. This is the…

On inking, becoming an artist, photography, and horror

You could split people into whatever types or categories you want. Some get offended by categorizing people. I don't. Let's now have some fun with artists. The way I see it, there are two types of artists. There are artists who like hard lines and artists who don't. I fall…
