Do whatever it is you want in life. But don't be an asshole.
Life can't get more simple than that.
Q: Do you have any words of wisdom for anyone thinking about taking the big step themselves, into becoming an artist in their own right?
A: My advice to someone thinking about plunging in is to take a six month sabbatical from your ‘regular life’ and work really hard every day on your art. At the end of six months you’ll know. I know that for me, the more I work the more inspired I get and the more I want to work. (Native American artist Aaron Paquette)
I recently got back to America after working/traveling in Australia and New Zealand for a year. Before that, I stayed in Denver, CO the past couple years. The travels were another chapter now that Denver is behind me. I gained new insights, new experiences, and new work all throughout the trek. My goals have changed a bit while out traveling and I have decided to push my focus towards my music, while keeping up with the art as more of a side project and to promote my self.
Currently, I have released this new personal brand in order to better share the different work that I do with others under one name: Alexanderjohnnybeat.com. The new project, Alexander Johnny Beat is all about music, photography, life, and the connection of creativity throughout it.
