Here's my new piece "Grey Area". The mind, at times, takes masochistic delight in suffering. To burn with desire and keep quiet about it is the greatest punishment we can bring on ourselves. Unrequited love does not die; it's only beaten down to a secret place where it hides, curled and wounded. For some unfortunates, it turns bitter and mean, and those who come after pay the price for the hurt done by the one who came before. So blindfolded, she learns to love pain and be patient. She says she, "I like the thrill". The hurt. She deserved this. She earned it. (Oh.. and Merry Christmas!)

youseeart So today's my birthday! 22 on the 22nd. It's been a great year and I, once again, want to thank all of you. I've already gotten over a hundred tweets this morning (haha shout out to you early birds) and I hope to get one from you too! @ EyeSeeArt is my twitter! Please send me a birthday snapchat @ EyeSeeArt too! I hope you all don't just see my art as graphite and charcoal, but also the dedication and heart I put behind it. There are going to be times when you learn more about the world you’re entering and feel defeated when you see the gap between the ideal and the reality… But that’s something we’ll all face. The people that face those obstacles and overcome them are people whose dreams come true. "I want my life, I want my life so bad.. And I'm doing everything I can.." I want you all to find that in whatever you love and conquer it. Technically today is just like any other day. Still growing. Thank you in advance for all the love and for the love shown! #XO 1mon

youseeart So today marks the 3 year anniversary of Echoes of Silence. Which was crazy when it first came out in 2011 just hours before my birthday. I remember staying up all night listening to it. Also congratulations to @abelxo (The Weeknd) who was honored with Canada’s Walk of Fame’s Alan Slaight Award — an award for young Canadians making a positive impact in the arts, and inspiring other Canadians. Shout out XO. Progress. Growth. Unity. 1mon

youseeart It's been awhile! Crazy things in the works and I'm extremely excited about them. I'll talk about those later. For now I want to address a few things. So please read the whole novel of a post. As many of you know earlier this year I quit my full time job to become a full time artist. It wasn't an easy decision, but one I felt would really put me out of my comfort zone to try and achieve something better for myself. At the same time I had to move from the location I was at and, in a way, all hell broke loose. This was around the same time I did the "XO Giveaway". Something I wanted to do as a thank you to all my followers. Due to sudden financial mishaps, hospital bills, copyright problems and a whole bunch of other stuff.. That fell through. I wish you all knew how many names came pouring in. I was deeply hurt that I couldn't completely fulfill that. You can see in this video clip I still have every last one of your names on my wall. As a reminder to keep pushing forward and to keep my word. Now when I finally set out to do so I have a better understanding of how the business side works and the past few months have gotten some advice from some tremendous sources. **read the first comment below to continue reading please** 1mon

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. 2mon

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! 2mon

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.. 2mon

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?

  •   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 2mon

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.
