As an artist, personally I find it very hard to sit down and paint without incentive. I’ve found recently I love to paint FOR something. My passion for painting seems to ignite when confronted with a festival or an event that resonates within me. That coming together of people from very different backgrounds to enjoy music and art in unison. And in the end, bringing inspiration to one another at this magical scene.
.
This is why I paint.. To gift something to that community
.
This painting will be showcased at Mogul Smoker 2018 complete with DJ set list 🎭

Still making art, albeit very slowly, so I hope to start posting more often again. (Working on too many projects at once has resulted in finishing none except for the ones that are paid for, but who says time management can’t be learned?)

"What Do You Have?" Do you have some vintage Flatware or Coins that you just have stashed away drawer or a box in the basement or attic and can not recall the last time you even looked at them. Did these once belong to your Grandparents or Parents and you just have them collecting dust and not even getting any enjoyment out of them. Cash On Hand can solve that problem by turning those forgotten family treasures into amazing pieces of jewelry or artisan pieces so they once more can have a life and bring new memories and joy. Maybe you just don't want it anymore and would like to sell it. We are all ways looking for Coins and Flatware to purchase. For more information please DM or PM me here https://www.facebook.com/cashonhandjewelry/ or email at cashonhandjewelry@gmail.com #cashonhand #entrepreneur #shopsmall #supportsmallbusiness #shoponline #buyme #madeinusa #madeinamerica #madeinvirgina #buildingamerica #makeamericagreatagain #madewell #handmade #handmadeisbetter #handmadejewelry #modernmaker #handmadewithlove #handsandhustle #silverjewelry #copperjewelry #coinrings #spoonrings #fashion #style #localartist #artistoninstagram #starvingartist #lovemyjob #psimadethis

Bad news, best news
-
Well the bad news is that I did not sell enough with my free shipping event over the weekend to finishing funding the weaving loom.
(Stick with me this story gets better)
And the sales I had didn’t even know about it. Instagram has become a rather difficult place to be seen or heard lately as a maker. And it’s tricky, I don’t want to complain about a free platform to connect and show off your work. And I don’t want to be ungrateful for the audience I’ve gained and have encouraged me. But it does stink, feeling like you’re being shuffled out of sight. And some days it gives me serious questions about whether I should still be here, maybe my efforts would be better used somewhere else.
But!
Despite my struggles, I continue on due to the goodwill and generosity of others. The thing I have found about the community of fibre lovers  is that it is filled with beautiful people with a genuine love to see everyone do well. 
After seeing my post @knitnatural offered me a loom that she isn’t using. (Insert all of heart and excitement emojis)
So.
I’ll push a little further and see where I can go.

Howdy to all the new followers that have joined in the last week or so! I'm Tricky, the madman behind Thor's Threads. I have a tendency to forget to show my face on here so for those that either haven't seen it before or have forgotten what it looks like here it is😅 I tend to show myself more often on my stories but be warned I'm usually stoned on those. 
Well, that ought to lose me some followers, my work here is done😂

I’ve been reconnecting with my inner anime nerd. I haven’t drawn in this style since I was like 16🤭 And I just started a new part time job so it’s been consuming more of my time. Luckily working with the iPad is quick and I can work on a drawing for 15 mins at a time and come back to it later. #parttimeartist #starvingartist #anime #mangaart #ipadpro #procreate #digitalart

🐝 🥛 🍯 Painting for sale!! “Milk and Honey” is something I’ve been working on for quite a few months. Meant to raise awareness for bee safety and habitat, this painting functions as a reminder that the entire world depends on bee pollination! Whether or not bees are actually endangered it’s always important to keep in mind that humans can and do negatively affect their habitats. We live in a land “flowing with milk and honey,” let’s keep it that way. DM me if you’re interested in purchasing this painting. 🐝 🥛 🍯

STARVING ARTIST (food,water,shelter) (series) 2

I've always felt a connection to the Studio Ghibli film

STARVING ARTIST (food,water,shelter) (series) 2 I've always felt a connection to the Studio Ghibli film "Kiki's delivery service" which this series of pieces are based on, but wasn't sure why for a long time. The story is of a young witch that leaves home to move to a new city and follows her highs and lows of starting her own delivery service business. But the film can clearly be interpreted as a young artist trying to turn their passion into a career against all odds and all the failures and joys that come with that decision. From money problems, feeling like an outsider from choosing such a different path to everyone around you to the crushing feeling of losing the joy of your passion once it becomes work. Recently I feel as if pursuit of happiness is pointless because happiness, sadness and every other emotion is inevitable. I just want to feel and soak up every experience because any thing's better then feeling nothing at all. No matter what we always have a story. #characterdesign #childhood #kikisdeliveryservice #cartoon #graphicnovel #comic #studioghibli #artist #film #anime #manga #art #artgallery #girl #tattoos #drawing #surealism #witch #work #starvingartist #artistproblems #money #japan #grindin #poor #spiritedaway #painting #cat #illustration
