First job

First job

My cousin and her friend working hard to tie up ice skates while I take a picture. This was my first job and I enjoyed it. Everything was kept simple. I learned how to ice skate on the spot and it took me a couple days to learn how to stop on skates. Everyone there is friendly even our managers.

ROT

ROT

This is one of the coolest days of my life so far. It was my first time jamming out in a band. It also stoked me because we got a studio where we could be as loud as we wanted. And these were some pretty cool cats they were good at what they did. Our first band practice was freaking amazing.

Humidity

Took a picture of myself because I looked so short. I was at an old friend’s house. I was waiting for him to come out so we can go buy me a windbreaker. I tripped him so many times and made him fall off his board. I don’t why I was only mean to him but I was.

“Draw this on my arm”

“Draw this on my arm”

I started becoming really good at drawing on people with pen. I was in like 8th grade when I started drawing on myself. I was impressed when I drew my ex’s name on my arm in cursive. When students saw I can draw really good on myself they all wanted me to draw on them. Since then I kinda stopped drawing on myself and did really cool drawings on friends and stuff. And my title for my picture is supposed to say “”draw on my arm”” I cant change it lol

Trophy shipwreck

Trophy shipwreck

There’s something about the sea I think is pretty cool. This is a random sketch I did during school. I like when I can draw out my imaginations sometimes. It feels like I can do what I want if I put my mind to it. For example, I’m finally going to finish school because I’ve been here too long. Writing this is one of my last assignments and it feels great.

For my 19th birthday it was spent working at my job. Don’t worry it was actually fun. Everyone celebrated it for me and took me out to go eat throughout the day. There was a lot of leftovers. A lot of the stuff was for me but it was Christmas Eve so everyone was going to get some kind of prize. Yup, my birthday is on Christmas Eve. It’s usually lame but this was a good one.

 

Backyards

Backyards

I like chillin in my backyard with my acoustic guitar. Usually just on the phone talking to my girl cause it’s always loud in my house. I enjoy being on the roof and just relax because there’s perfect shade and it’s pretty great. Being there is cool I can just let go of all my responsibilities for a moment. I almost feel free just sitting there.

Abandoned zoo

Abandoned zoo

Hanging out with the 2/5 of my band. We went to an abandoned zoo. Just hanging out and walking around is all we did. We talked and laughed about ridiculous stuff. Found some cave systems and later on decided to leave home.

Night

Night

I was sitting down with a friend and talking about life and nonsense. I looked to my right for a sec and I thought this street looked beautiful. Sometimes I like the concrete jungle. There’s a lot of stores to buy food and drinks to keep going. Most of the time I just wanna get lost in the woods or live beneath the sea and meet a new world that my world can’t see.

Art of Mascara

Art of Mascara

That’s a picture of my tattoo. That’s only like a quarter of it. I like tattoos in its art not for something that has no meaning or crazy story behind it. Or any real reason to get a tattoo. The story behind this tattoo was this girl (old friend) came crying to me and tried explaining what had happened but I honestly couldn’t understand. All I remember is her tears full of mascara rushing down her face and still trying to hold back her tears.

Ice burn

Ice burn

This is a picture of my first time snowboarding. It was really easy because I skate. My cousin even made me ride over boxes and rails on my first day. I didn’t think I could to do it but it took a couple tries to build up confidence. Everyone was impressed how fast I learned in one day. Maybe I’ll become a professional boarder someday?

Roads

Roads

In the mountains with friends and my older brother. I loved how the clouds were shaped. The silhouette of the trees was pretty cool. I enjoy being on the road and away from home. Traveling and coming home late is always a good vibe for me.

 

Good friends

Good friends

I come home one day and see my dog sleeping with a tortoise. My sister had brought home a tortoise for my mom. My mom didn’t even want it but it she took care of it anyway. There’s so many times I almost step on him (the tortoise) because he likes to hang out in the dark or under desks. It’s pretty cool to have a tortoise.

Buildings

Buildings

Just in a building waiting for a friend. I was drawing on someone’s notepad but I got bored. Some lady brought me snacks to eat so that was cool I guess. I looked out the window of the building and the city below looks dope. So much life in the city that lights pollute the sky.

Amelia Earhart

Amelia Earhart

Spending so much time in school doing nothing. It gets old quick when you realize how old you’re getting. It’s confusing but my teacher said it happens to everyone in school, someday you’ll wake up and say “damn, I really need to do something for myself”. And you’ll get the work done eventually. I learned a lot from wasting time to getting work done. It’s really not hard you just got to ask teachers for help even if you think it’ll make it worse.

Perspective

Perspective

A day before 4th of July I was in this building practicing some dances with friends for some festival. We were in LA so we got some snacks. My friend told us his uncle owned the building. We knew he was lying but he said he can take us to the top of the building. We made it to the top and I we all took some pictures but I decided to take one for myself.

Skate

Skate

 skating is fun. It’s like a good workout sometimes. Really fun when you can just skate on anything on the streets when you’re trying to get somewhere. I broke my arm twice because of skating but it’s all good. Got to keep going to get better that’s all.

5.9

5.9

This picture was taken on one of my friend’s birthday. I told my parents that he kind of lived close and I could walk but I was gonna get a ride from my friend. My parents decide to drive me there. They dropped me off half way and I had to walk the rest to the party. I still made it early but when everyone came through that’s when the party got lit.

Street art?

Street art?

Talking with my buddy deejay on the way home. We walk home on a windy day which is alright. We see a message on a wall under a bridge. My good friend deejay thought it looked really cool so he took a picture. So did I and we went home.

Carnifex

Carnifex

The first concert I went to was a Carnifex show with other heavy metal bands. It was so dope. The best experience I’ve ever had. This was also my first time in a mosh pit. Overall it was great even though I didn’t know the bands. I felt like the show was more about the mosh pit because that’s where I was having fun.

2000s

2000s

On my way to school I notice I was being followed by a crow. Then it goes away for awhile. It was a perfect weather too. Then I see a bunch of crows sitting on a wire just staring at me. I try to quickly pull out my phone and take a picture but as soon as I did that they flew away but I got a cool picture of one flying away.

Z collection

Z collection

At a friends house and his room is a mess but his room looks so cool as a mess. I want this room for myself. He has some pretty sick masks and leather jackets. He’s so punk he had liberty spikes but he got tired of long hair and having to take care of it. Same as me I had super long hair but I cut it cause it’s always in the way and getting caught in things.

California Sunny Day

California Sunny Day

On a field trip with some old friends. We even got the guide to take a picture with us. It was fun but I don’t keep in touch with them anymore. I only hangout with one cause he lives close and it’s easy to make plans. I used to care about keeping ALL my friends but it feels like a natural thing for me because I moved to so many schools I thought there’s no point on keeping up.

 

Not summer

Not summer

I miss winter too much. I’d rather have cold weather than being hot all the time. And I’m a lot more chill when it’s cold. If it’s hot I don’t wanna do anything but be surrounded by cooling fans playing video games. The only part about summer I like is summer nights and hanging out outside drinking cold beverages with my brothers or cousins or friends.

Teenage riot

Teenage riot

I met up with a girl in 11th grade at some art gallery place where she was practicing how to paint. She’s pretty good at painting or whatever. I eventually got bored watching her trying to paint a picture of a flower inside a glass vase. So I wondered around the place and looked at all the paintings and this is the one that caught my eyes. I saw birds, jewelry, commotion, blood, and I believe that’s Jesus Christ’s crown thingy. And I just thought the whole canvas looked amazing and what amazing painter created this.

Moon construction

Moon construction

This is one of my favorite sketches. An ocean, kraken, shipwreck, spirits, and a silhouette of a modern city. Drawing used to solve my problems as a kid. Sometimes the adults wanted me to draw stuff for them but I never did because that’s when I became lost. I can never force myself to draw... I have to be really bored to create something cool or new.

Novel Our Vine

Novel Our Vine

One of my favorite drawings. I’m really proud for myself on this one. This was my first band, but you know sometimes things don’t go the way you planned. I wanted to add a lot more but then I was afraid I would ruin it. I tried drawing another one but I couldn’t, so I just left it as it is.

Pavement to life

Pavement to life

Escaping from the city for awhile is something I live for. Even though a lot of my friends would rather be in the city, the cool ones will be here to share these moments. Adventure with friends is amazing. You almost have no limit to what you want to do. You can almost live free.

Metro 19

Metro 19

Most of my life was spent going through the metro. This is a picture from union station in L.A. I thought it was beautiful so I had to take a picture. It’s pretty abstract and the color is perfect. This is the kind of art I’m into.

Night of the fourth month

Night of the fourth month

I met new friends that night. It was a hat party and I was having a blast. I don’t remember a lot of what we did because it was late at night. In this picture we were on our way to the store. We bought some churros and went back to the party.
