Get crafty.

So I leave for my very first art fair that I will be participating in this Monday. Saying I am hyped is an understatement. you'll find me at the Eli Klein Fine Art exhibition keepin it real with my E.K.F.A Mafioso. Look forward to seeing a few old friends and making some new ones. you might (most likely) even find my face down in a deep dish pepperoni pizza, keep your eyes open and your cameras on. I will be updating regularly throughout the week here and here. Stay tuned.. heh heh heh.. As HE says " art is our common bond."


Yo it's Friday, which means..

Welcome to our Friday edition of fun. As you may have noticed my posts have mainly consisted of inspiration with little to no written content. This is not a mistake, I feel as though a photo, song or any other medium I choose to blog about can probably speak for itself a lot better then I can. it's kind of like abstract blogging (soooo next season, haha) I present you with a medium of some sort and you interpret it into whatever you need it to be. Inspiration is not lacking in this world, it is our responsibility as artists to find it and create it at the same time. We're all in this together. Happy weekend darlings, it's gonna be a banger.



If I could turn back time
If I could find a way I'd take back those words that hurt you and you'd stay

I don't know why I did the things I did I don't know why I said the things I said
Pride's like a knife it can cut deep inside
Words are like weapons they wound sometimes.

I didn't really mean to hurt you I didn't wanna see you go I know I made you cry, but baby

If I could turn back time
If I could find a way
I'd take back those words that hurt you
And you'd stay
If I could reach the stars
I'd give them all to you
Then you'd love me, love me
Like you used to do

If I could turn back time

My world was shattered I was torn apart
Like someone took a knife and drove it deep in my heart
You walked out that door I swore that I didn't care
But I lost everything darling then and there

Too strong to tell you I was sorry
Too proud to tell you I was wrong
I know that I was blind.

I didn't really mean to hurt you
I didn't want to see you go
I know I made you cry

If I could turn back time.
