It Happened Like That


Without even trying to hide it, I am completely motivated and inspired by many things. Some of these would be my contact/friends on flickr along with many of my blog buddies. Music also plays a huge part in all this. For instance, the piece you see above was completely inspired by a pack of those good 'ol rats. That's right, I sat down with no motivation at all to design. However, with a bit of Dean, Frank, and Sammy, I just started creating. Then I noticed that I had designed something with a Karl Benjamin feel. I like his art. He's got a cool style. If only I could sell my art for a living too.

Hope you like it.

V, As always, thanks for stopping by and giving a compliment. Also, I joined the group on facebook and I will try to stay up to date with it. I did upload some images, but I still have more to upload.

What better inspiration than those rats a-singin! Your piece is very dynamic, and I do see the KB influence, but it's still your own.
Don't give up on making a living through your art - I know people who've made it happen, and you can too!

Okay, hold on! I just went to shop at your Etsy, and there's nothing there! Where did your pieces for sale go? Please let me know, because I finally have a bit of moola to spend, and I want an Eric McGrew for my walls :-)
