I love to create in just about any way possible. Sometimes through design, text, drawing, and so forth. One lesson that has gone far with me as an artist is to always share growth of creativity with other creatives. Photography wasn't my main interest growing up, I loved carpentry and architecture; believe it or not. I've stayed connected with a colleague whom I call my friend; Israel Guevara, I've known since high school & he is currently enrolled at Sci-Arc and is a very talented architect & designer himself.
His sculpture was selected for top design at Sci-Arc as a public space or community center. The craters on the bottom are holes that a hilltop would have with simulated agriculture around the building. The sculpture as a whole is unique and yet using your imagination could be cost effective in the long run creating something artistic and useable for a creative center.
Another type of design that I fully appreciate and enjoy are through fashion and products. Denim is a good example of something that can have just about thousands of creations and possibilities. The newest item to start a creative trend in my opinion are the flyknit's. Bringing grandma's style back in the coolest way, no she didn't sew my shoes together but I sure like to dream of it in some century that could've happened.
I've always been keen on showing off my treasures, but to show off someone's else's treasure and masterpiece is what I appreciate the most. The craft to create something and see it from beginning of design to ending where it's fully developed into the baby you have raised into childhood is quite a remarkable feeling. Lately I've had this tone of being hard on myself, hard on the work I create. As an artist you'll always be your harshest critic, to get away from this I like to digest what I've created and let it sit until I finalize my projects. Let's call it the darkroom time. You've gotta wait until your prints are done in the stop bath to fully see the final image you created. No project is ever complete but I'm always growing to become better, just like all of us are growing to become better individuals each and everyday.
