Art has been a lifelong passion of mine. As a kid, I would sit on my bed and copy my favourite band logos with led pencil or acrylic paint. Iron Maiden, RATT, Metallica, Slayer, Dokken… you name them, I copied their logo in my sketchbooks, on school desks (yer… naughty, I know) and, my most favourite of all, I painted a denim jacket entirely with band logos. Boy, I wish I still had it!
I was always creating something artistically, taking photos, knitting, sewing, baking biscuits, anything to keep the passion of creating something alive. There’s nothing more fulfilling.
Today I photograph, write about music and musicians, build websites, and create graphic designs, build businesses… The urges to create artistically continues to grow and grow.
I’ve always loved to help other artists–bands, painters, authors, directors, sculptures… To me, they have always been the most important people on Earth. They are tomorrow’s creators; they are the authors of the future to come.
My friend, David Carus, shares the same point of view. His driving force is to make EVERYONE an artist and believes if we all got busy creating art, in any form, evil would subside and Earth would become a more peaceful place for us all–without war, famine, drug abuse, violence…
Watch David talk about his Kickstarter campaign:
While the dream may sound ambitiously idealistic and improbable to many, this matters not. It’s the message that’s important, and it’s one step of many that need to be taken to change the world to a better place.
I’ve ordered one of David’s colouring books and t-shirts to help fund his Kickstarter campaign.
