I have a brother who loves break dancing. It’s a type of art form, using your body to do tricks in mid motion or certain poses along a beat (or rhythm; usually b-boy, hip-hop, and other forms of music). He’s been doing it for a long time, and the physical activity is somewhat demanding of the whole body, especially the muscles in the upper regions of your body. So you can only imagine the kind of work out he’s getting. He would be the perfect model for some anatomy sketches, but considering our relation, we wont go there (l.o.l)

You see, my brother is huge into art, but of course I’m the “artist” (or should I say Fine Artist) while he uses other forms to release his creative mind. Music is one of them. He raps and collaborates with his friends on different hip-hop/rap beats. This in itself is just pure amazing to me, because the whole thing with my brother is that, he’s actually going to school for something opposite end of the spectrum. Instead of dancing and recording songs for a living, this guy is going to be a nurse to help elder, special needs, and disabled folks. That’s right, can you believe this!?

He to me will always be my young brother, the huge artist in the making, but from, I can only share with you the fun that he has when he’s not studying. However I’ll say this, the Urban scene is your playground when schools out. Forget the swings and the slides, welcome to rooftops and parking lots.

Essentially what I’m trying to get at is; you can do anything you want. You can become anything you want. Just don’t ever stop being creative, don’t stop imagining, and don’t stop playing. Once you give that up, life becomes boring, dull, and predictable. Art is about something more; Design is about something much bigger than you and I could ever dream of. It’s all around you and in everything you do. No matter how small or big the task you’re being creative in some way. With numbers, words, pictures, dance, sound, music, and whatever else you could think of.

  1. I’m really inspired along with your writing skills as neatly as with the layout in your blog. Is this a paid subject matter or did you customize it your self? Anyway stay up the excellent quality writing, it is uncommon to peer a nice blog like this one these days..

    1. The layout is very much a free thing on wordpress, but the banner itself (ie. the woman in the header) is my own work and each post is done by me. So I set it up so that each post has a word, a definition, synonyms, and of course (in most cases) an image to go along before the entry or something after.

      Glad you enjoy my writing!
