NIGHTSHADE
An art piece about THE DARKNESS!!
This started out as a sketch and then I was drawing this one off-and-on. Between 2016 and parts of 2017.

It's just a cool art piece about darkness. I aptly called it NIGHTSHADE!!

Sort of Lord Of The Rings influenced, I am sure.

Anyway, I HOPE YOU LIKE THIS ONE!! It's one of my black-and-white art pieces!!

ANATOMY OF A FLASHBACK [My Flashbacks Of 1987]
An art piece that was 30 years in the making!! The first complete art piece I had done in 2017.

[I did this art piece in a 2 1/2 month time frame between December of 2016 till the middle of February 2017. Between depression bouts, PTSD flashbacks and even bronchitis spells.]

This was some art that was probably one of the most DIFFICULT for me to do.

This was art about THE MAIN FLASHBACK that I had when I was 14 years old. That very afternoon I got off the bus in a Western Missouri suburb back in 1987 and witnessed the real horrors of true death.

And that was the very day in/around April of 1987 that I found my mother dead on a floor. At a time when I was trying to integrate back into another school system.

It came at a time for me when there was no internet or technology that was in 2017 times. So this art is sort of this painful RELIVING of the MAIN PTSD FLASHBACK that I have. It's about wandering into darkness and unexpected death of a loved one. 

But see, in my head....This is EXACTLY how this particular flashback replays in my mind. I did this art piece because in a "normal" mind. They would not understand the ANATOMY of how something really terrible like this would even play out!?

I remember walking to the back side-door on the second square house. Right by the old cinderblock garage I drew my FIRST DRAWING of a window on the side with a blue crayon at 3 years old. As I often routinely did after I got home after school. And no lights were on as there was a lamp that was usually on. The interior was dimly lit. And it was pretty scary for me at the time. Because the person who always greeted me was no longer there. 

And I remember my mother was laying face-down on the ground. I WAS TERRIFIED!! And then there's a panel where I show my late-mother's face with the purple bruises. And what I remembered was she was cold and bearing-down with this weight. She had this DEAD STARE that I tried to capture in the expression of her. Her pupils were somewhat dilated strangely with eyes drooping. She had on her favorite color, which was turquoise. [Like a special sort of blue my late-mother was obsessed with.]

This art goes into that FIRST HOUR of what I witnessed at a 14 year old boy. [Or first hour-and-a-half of the ordeal.] That constant fear and the COMPLETE LOSS WITHIN EMPTINESS a person goes through when you go through something like this. Before I even KNEW this was a condition and a disease called POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER!!

The flashbacks didn't exactly happen right away for me!! But after a few months of time, the bad memories of this event just became more and more VIVID for me!! I remember I was forced to go to school the very next day. Then these things called FLASHBACKS were just pounding their way into my head. Even during my preteen and high school years. I used to get those horrible memories stuck in my head every few minutes. Even when I was going to art school in my 20s, if I was alone....I didn't like walking into dimly lit hallways or places that brought up the flashbacks somehow for me.

This art was a true challenge for me, because of it's RAW EMOTIONAL SUBJECT MATTER!! But after so many years of doing various types of art. I wanted to show this art to people, because IT ACTUALLY HAPPENED TO ME!!! To recall a different time in a different place. Having a lifestyle destroyed and altered because everything just CHANGED in that key hour of time. No angels at all in this art, no joy or anything like that. No glitz or glamour. No popularity in this vision. Cause for me, this art was TOTAL TRUTH!! This is the way I see the flashbacks surround these awful events in my mind. Like I saw them as VISUAL FRAGMENTS whenever the flashbacks would just pop up in my mind under stressful situations.

My mother's last words to me were this. "Do good in school! Keep working on the art!" 

[Eventually, i'd go onto art college several years later. Receiving a dual art degree in commercial art. Cause my mother wanted to see me go to college, even as a child.]

WHY DID I DO THIS ART!? Cause of the simple reason I needed to show people what I endured mentally and physically, just to become a true artist. And maybe over time and space, I knew I had to arrive to this as an art piece eventually!! That time in my life when everything just came CRASHING DOWNWARD AND INWARD!! Like this atmospheric quality of sadness and pain that I saw with this art.

THIS IS THE DOWNFALL OF BEING! The main flashback of my life that lead to other flashbacks of hardcore rejections and alienation. There is nothing subtle about this vision whatsoever, as it was meant to be that way. The TRUE VICTORY was me conquering this vision after so many decades of seeing this stuff in my mind involuntarily. To show someone who DIDN'T have PTSD what PTSD looks like within the inside your mind when you are constantly reliving these dark-moody memories over-and-over-and-over again. That perpetual REPLAY of doom that has no shut-off valve.

This is my most ACCURATE DEPICTION of what I relived during that horrible day in 1987 when I was 14. My mother was 50 years old when she passed-away from a possible brain aneurysm. But having the TRUE COURAGE to show people what I actually went through in one complete art piece. Hopefully, I conquered that somehow through many nights of sadness and flashbacks.

WITH TRUE COURAGE AND COMPASSIONS OF A PTSD AND DEPRESSION SURVIVOR!!

Thanks for checking out this art piece!!

It really means to me more then you could ever know to show you what I went through!!

DEATHMETALFURY
Another THROWBACK art piece, but told in the modern days of 2016!!

I wanted to make this art available through my DeviantArt account!! Because this was a best seller during the times I did the Creations Of Hope // CREATOPIA gallery in October/November of 2016.

For some reason, this struck a nerve with people!! Cause it was an art piece about death metal. 

[Like a throwback to when I was doing a 6-part story for Furrlough called DEATH METAL BUNNY BRIGADE. But without the bunnies!]

It got inspired because of seeing Suffocation in KC a day before my first emergency kidney stones operation in July of 2016. I drew this after I got somewhat better. health-wise. 

Anyway, I do hope you like this art piece!!

STRENGTH
Some art that i'd been meaning to get up for awhile.

This is from my 2016 sketchbook. Something that I drew in 2 pieces. 

[Form and then the words.]

It's basically an archetype about STRENGTH

Sort of a throwback to earlier pieces I did in the 2000s. But sort of abstracted yet constructed for 2016.

Anyway, I do hope you like this!! It's raw and BLACK AND WHITE. Just the way it should be!!

So yeah....I HAD FUN WITH THIS ONE DAY!! One day I was in my Twitter, and I remembered how much I has SUFFERED doing the arts in my time! Even now, I am basically BLACKLISTED from the so-called “Bartle Hall Comic Shows” in the Kansas City area! Which is both hurtful and ridiculous for me anyway! Seeing as how i'd been in well over 100+ publications anyway! WHICH INCLUDES ACTUAL COMIC BOOKS!!

[The stigmas have GOT TO FREAKING STOP about my PTSD! Geeze!]

Then one day! I saw this TWITTER HASHTAG that was called #ThingsPeopleSayToArtists! IT WAS THE BEST HASHTAG IN A TWITTER I HAD SEEN IN QUITE A LONG TIME!! It was so brilliant and amazing, I just had to really run with it all!! And it made me A HERO to those who don't get recognized in the art....Cause chances are, THEY TOTALLY WENT THROUGH IT AS WELL!!

They were so TERRIBLY AMUSING to post up online for me in my TWITTER!! I posted something like 20 ACTUAL RESPONSES IN 2 HOURS TIME!! [So here they are....IN IT'S ENTIRETY!! The responses I posted to THINGS PEOPLE SAY TO ARTISTS!!!] All of the fickle things you hear being and actually LIVING in the true arts nowadays in the 21st century! But the ones who don't DRAW OR WRITE OR CREATE don't tend to see it the same way as a visionary artist and/or writer!

ENJOY THESE!! They are pretty damned hilarious and even deadpan humorous!

NOTE: The response about DOKKEN is an modified answer of what I already wrote anyway!
