youseeart "Jack of all trade. Master of none." It's almost Christmas! Lot's of orders coming in and you all are awesome! I'm currently getting some goodies to put in new orders, (orders made about 3 weeks ago will have them in there already) so this is an opportunity to get a complete original drawing, matted and framed. Head to my shop (link in bio) and it'll say "Let Me Draw Something For You". Commission me to do something for yourself or for someone for Christmas.. Or just take advantage of the low price I'm offering in general. 2w

youseeart Before I head over to have dinner with my family. I wanted to let you all know how thankful I am for you all. From your comments, likes, the mail I get, the stories you all tell me, the art you show me, the support, it means the world. I think it's true that we should certainly count our blessings, but we should also make our blessings count. So I try my best to show love to those around me not only through my art, but on my everyday life. Eat well, enjoy the day with people you cherish, and have a fantastic evening! Happy Thanksgiving! 3w

youseeart "Lately I'm...
Not so present now
Not enough
For your constant found

I've got time, but you're tired of waiting
You only want me in open spaces
Can’t fill your gaps with people
I know no one

So lonely trying to be yours
When you're looking for so much more." Love this song. Love the artist. #FKAtwigs

youseeart Before you all start reading, please answer this down below? Do you enjoy the stories? Would you like me to put these writing anywhere for you to read? Website? Blog? Thinking about starting my YouTube channel again. Anyways, I really do enjoy the art of words as well as creations of my pencil. SO, I was talking to a Sagittarius today and she really reminded of my old Sagittarius piece.

This is a drawing I did in collaboration with L.A photographer Kenneth Davie. The models name is Elizabeth and she represents my "Sagittarius" in my old Zodiac Series.

What this piece is about:
We all get adrenaline, super hyped up, crazy hungry, anxious to the point of noticing every little thing, lustful, driven or have even been crazy mad at some point in our life. Today ft I chose to have Elizabeth as my model because I love the dark shadows in this picture. The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery. So this is why I chose her to be the perfect rendition of the hidden Sagittarius. This Zodiac sign symbolizes the attempt to free itself from man's animal nature. The centaur is thought to symbolize the development of the human soul. It symbolizes the animal natures and desires of man, as well as its spiritual aspirations. In Greek mythology, centaurs were adventurous, brave, and wise. The one thing I will say about humans is the desire for direction, a higher purpose, and abundance is key in what makes us different. Though I will say it's interesting that in a fit of rage, in the moment of true passion or love, or in the deepest slum of sadness reasoning and rational thinking gets blurred. We also want to all be different.. Man is the only creature that refuses to be what he is. In conclusion, We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. "Man: a being in search of meaning." ~Plato

youseeart I remember sitting next to this woman. I never asked her name. I never gave mine. I formally greeted the photographer and asked if I could watch and see how things are done. He said yes and turned on some music. He told the girl in front of me to relax and pose in which ever way seemed natural. I've learned beauty is best when not attentive to the things around it. It just is. Nothing fake. The camera flashed. I asked about her tattoos and what they meant. She told me of love, love lost, joy and pain. She said the hardest and saddest thing she ever encountered in life was people she loved breaking her trust, not her heart. She said trust was the first step to love. The background now filled with camera flashes every few moments. Her demeanor changed. She seemed to be remembering things. "Stay focused please", the voice said. She wiped her eyes, smiled and said, "Even though I've been hurt- you may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you don't trust enough." She laid down. I asked if I could keep one of the pictures, to draw and share this moment with other people out there. Who knows, they might being feeling the same way. The camera flashed for the final time and she said, "I trust that you'll do something beautiful with it". I hope I did her justice. I found the words of Thomas Merton very fitting to end this. "The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them." Funny the things you will learn from strangers. I strive in my work to have the same effect on people.. 4w

youseeart "Baby, who you tryna fool. Girl, I might be 21, but I got memories to prove that I've seen your kind before.."#XO

I've been waiting to do this piece for awhile and it seemed very appropriate since the anniversary of the Trilogy is coming up soon. Being 21 myself I remember when Echoes of Silence first dropped on December 21, because my birthday is the 22nd. I was also honored to have The Weeknd wish me happy birthday. Though I remember how dark the EP was. The becoming of one's self and realizing you have your craft down and that nothing was going to get in your way in accomplishing that. Had me looking at people like "Where were you when I needed you eight months ago?" " I've been alone for almost all my life. What makes you think that you can ever do me right? You're the same old song.." and you get to a place where you want to trust people, "But I remember who you are.." I remember back then when I felt a type of desperation, "Don't you leave my little life.." As my time as an artist grew, so did my life and this album helped me find who I was talking to.. Realize who they are. You can place yourself, friends or loved ones in situations that arise in the album and see that lifestyle could be very damaging.. All for the thrill of not wanting to be boring.. So I know that's a lot of personal, but broad definition of my inspiration. This isn't a confessional. Though I did enjoyed making this I left A Lot of my thoughts out, but I'm not trying to waste anybodys time. Anyways leave me a comment below, how do you like the piece and what did you get from the EP?

  •   debziney22 This song is super special to me because it's the song that made me fall in love with @abelxo's music. My bf made me listen to it and I actually started tearing up. Idk it just touched me immensely and the whole mix tape does. Anyways this piece is like that moment for me. 1mon

  •   itzyamanzlace I could correlate the mixtapes darkness to my own. It's as if I was the speaker (weeknd) myself, reiterating my thoughts on paper thru self reflection. You put it more artistically, but it's as if most of my great self realizations came around right after The Fall and the mixtape's release. My life was forever altered 3w

youseeart Here's a repost of an art piece I did last year called "A Case Of You". Just thought I'd share some work all the new followers probably haven't seen from me.
What this piece is about:
Growing up I was always told and have learned that men want to be respected and women want to be loved. Many of the aspects of our character are based off of wanting one of these things. So in my last series entitled "Simply Beautiful" I wanted to make drawings related to women and their side of this. As I was making this piece I was listening to James Blake, Frank Ocean and The Weeknd (Probably 3 of my favorite musical artists) and getting ideas of a broken women. This doesn't mean flawed, but broken. Whether that's emotional or physical.
James Blake - 'Case Of You'
"Oh, you're in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter and so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you darling.
And I would still be on my feet
I would still be on my feet.." Frank Ocean- 'Lost'
Now you're lost,
Lost in the heat of it all.
Girl you know you're lost,
Lost in the thrill of it all.

The Weeknd- 'Rolling Stone'
"I got you.
So baby love me.
Before they all love me.
Until you won’t love me.
Because they all left me.
I’ll be different.
I think I’ll be different.
I hope I’m not different.
And I hope you’ll still listen." These three songs helped me draw this piece and I'll leave you with your own interpretation of the lyrics. Thanks for viewing and reading! Like and leave a comment! “The strength of a woman is not measured by the impact that all her hardships in life have had on her; but the strength of a woman is measured by the extent of her refusal to allow those hardships to dictate her and who she becomes.” ― C. JoyBell C.

youseeart Definitely one of my favorite musicians. Happy birthday to #FrankOcean . A song that inspired a few pieces of mine by his is called "Wiseman". Frank wrote the song for Quentin Tarantino’s 2012 slavery western 'Django Unchained' but Tarantino couldn’t find the right scene for it and so the song went unused. Even still Quentin remains one of my favorite directors of all time and I still enjoy the song. "Wiseman closed his mouth.
Madman closed his fist.
Young man shows his age.
Judge man named it sin.
Bad man don' exist no.
No evil man exists.
Good man don't exist no.
No righteous man exists.
Sad man cannot cry in place where man can see.
Never witnessed father weep,
This old man thought it weak.
But strong man don't exist.
No undying man exists.
Weak man don't exist no.
Just flesh and blood exists.
But your mother would be proud of you.
I bet your mother would be proud of you.."

youseeart It's taken me a year, but here is the start of my new series. My Zodiac Series as many of you may not know, was a year long project on helping me find what makes a man love a woman. I had some struggles in my personal life that made me not want to be in a relationship at a young age; college, work, art ect. So I went on a search. A search to grab that fire back in my heart to take that risk of this "love" thing. The risk of pain, the risk of heartache, but also the fruits that come from it.. The happiness, the joy, the comfort. So I searched. My Zodiac Series housed women from all over the world and from different states in America. Chicago, Los Angeles, Texas, Florida and Canada, Denmark, Ecuador ect. What I learned from talking to them was that no matter the sign, the age, the race, the religion.. They're all beautiful. So all of that to say. This year was different. It took me all year to finally justify my new set of pieces from my encounters with women. Some from a distance. Some there for a moment. Some close to my heart. A new pain, a new loss, things regained, redemption. Closure. I know this picture doesn't give much, but I'm taking my time on these 4 big pieces. The series is called "Seasons: The Nature of a Woman". Hope you enjoy the ride. 2mon
