ivbentaqiy Question: What is your Motivation and Goals?
Answer: My Motivation is reaching a Master level and Respect level of Expert in my craft. The goals I've always wanted Is to obtain a prestigious Title as the Artist #IvbenTaqiy, but because I couldn't afford the traditional way, I thought if I'd create my own lane and methods to achieve such respect, it would be unprecedented and the creativity would be pioneered as genius for the longevity of secured finance for my family and artistic accolades as a living artist and legend.

ivbentaqiy This comment really meant a lot to me. It's a humbling feeling to inspire people positively through art. The smallest gesture of actually caring and replying goes a long way. I still get inspired myself by this young lady @smoovchiq and others on social medias, there's a lot of very Talented and creative people in the world. Thank you and continue being great at what u do! 3d

I followed you so long ago to see some great work and one day you commented on my picture demanding to see more of MY art. That was a wake up call for me. I began to no longer concern myself with whether or not I could compare to other artist and simply focused on being authentically me! My work brings me joy and peace in a world of chaos. You never really know the impact you impress upon others, but today I want you to know the impact you had upon me. Thanks again! 3d
  •   ivbentaqiy Wow @smoovchiq I just really thought u were dope! Remember the draw it game ? U were the only person kicking my ass with the creativity of finger art in a screen! Keep going I'm proud of u sis 3d
  •   smoovchiq Yes I remember! I stopped playing because people started stealing my pictures lol. I'm going to keep going for sure, thanks again. 3d

ivbentaqiy New look ideas..... Yes this is my own hair, not Synthetic locks I'll Reattach my original locks that I grew 10 years ago back in after a deep wash and cleaning. Also think I'll trim my beard down and keep my natural black color. Gotta switch things up. Why? Cuz I'm creative and I can. 4d
