So a few things have been going on in my life which has currently inspired my art to take a turn for which ever (good or bad).
The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence- We here in my city are trying to start a chapter with this wonderful group of men and women to join in the fight for peoples rights and care for the people in our community that are other wise over looked. If you don't know anything about them I would say look them up because tbh there is way to much that they have already done to give a quick littler summary. Lets just say these sisters Kick but where ever they go.
Occupy- I don't know what everyone's view on them is and quite frankly I really don't care. My views on this whole thing are going to stay to myself so I don't taint anyone's view or non-view. I was there in my city for the whole camping out experience and learned a lot about things that I knew nothing about like the tar sands, transgender registration act, SOPA, among other issues that where shared there. So this whole Occupy thing had opened my eyes to a whole new world of problems and the way I feel I can help is through my art.
HIVEcollective- A lot of you haven't heard of them I'm sure.... actually I'm 100% positive you haven't heard of them unless you have spoken to me personally. Its a group that is just starting out in Edmonton Alberta, and boy is it something. Its a group of about fifteen local artist of all kind trying to bring awareness to a lot of issues all at the same time of kicking off their career and trying to help up and coming artists and interested artist create a career for themselves in a safe environment. I myself am apart of this collective and very proud of it too. We're just a baby right now but soon enough once we get enough exposure in the city and content to post on the internet I think it will work out to be a great thing... no an amazing thing.
Anyways those are just a few things that I am involved in and that are inspiring me to create bigger and better art.
