learn the rules, so you can break them

“Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.”

― Pablo Picasso

A great quote, one of my animation school teachers would always say you need to know the rules in order to break them. I feel like that is true is so many things. I love art since it challenges you, you study and learn, through trial and error, through watching and learning from others. Life experiences change you, and how you see things. Learn the rules, so as an artist you can break them and find your own unique stye.

Finally started creating my online shop, a few of my prints are online for purchase. I am doing limited edition runs of only 50 prints. These prints are on museum quality paper, they will last 200-300 years with proper care!

If there is something you want and don't see let me know, I will be constantly updating and adding prints/originals as I go!
