1. Trailer for the First episode of Get Inspired.. A personal video project of people that inspire me (Tony Walls). Desmond Blair is a painter, 3D artist, Animator, Graphic Designer and more. He was born without hands and does not allow ANYTHING to stand in the way of achieving his dreams. If that isn't inspiration, I don't know what is.

  3. Desmond Blair is a temple of inspiration to me not only as an artist, but as a person that has overcome immeasurable obstacles to get where he is.. He's not only one of the most promising artists of the DFW area, but he's also one of the most humble and genuine human beings I've ever had the pleasure of knowing.

    I recently shot a flier for the Cup Cake Meet organization ( check out the making of the flier here - vimeo.com/43082360) to promote their next event to benefit Breast Cancer Research. I was told the image would then be reproduced as an oil painting to then be auctioned off and the proceeds would go to the charity as well (Bradie James Foundation).

    I thought documenting the process would be something cool for me to watch and I could use it as an excuse to work on some video techniques. I had NO IDEA my life was about to change forever.

    One can not simply be in Desmond's presence and not be affected by his overwhelming story nor his ability to make what he does seem effortless. I can only imagine doing what he does and I have 2 good hands to do it with. I was OBLIGATED to attempt to capture what I could, compile it, and share it with whoever would listen and watch.

    This experience went from "an excuse to shoot" to the beginning of a MOVEMENT for me. I am now in the process of finding more artists that inspire me and sharing their stories with the world in a similar fashion. I'd love for this to movement to spread and everyone find at least one person that inspires them and share them with the world. I think the world could use a little more inspiration and positivity.

    I know the production quality of the video could be done better, but I can honestly say, I'm learning and have definitely been inspired to grow even more and with what I have at my disposal now, this is the best I could have done. I intend for every episode to be better than the last.. But please don't let my technical ineptitude take away from Desmond's amazing story.

    Please enjoy, and share with others, and let me know how you feel about the video and "Get Inspired"

  4. I was commissioned to record the Marinela Talent School/ Art Love Magic/Journey Man Ink activities earlier this month.. I've compiled a vid showcasing the evening's activities.. There were world renowned artists working hand in hand w/ kids. It was a beautiful sight. Then later in the evening there was a dancing exhibition performed by the Marinela dancers as well as the kids were invited to dance along with them as well. The event was intended to increase physical activity by dancing as well as allow kids to work side by side with artists.

  5. This piece means a lot to me because it's like brining things full circle. I totally stopped painting and when I met Tony Walls back in 2012 he not only inspired me with his photography but he CHALLENGED me. At the time, he was working on a 365 project and he challenged me to explore the same type of project with my painting. I knew it'd be kinda rough to do 365 paintings so I decided to take on a 52 week challenge.

    I finished about 30 or so pieces in one year, not all 52. But I learned two things.... 1.) It's not about waiting until you're perfect. Each painting had something in it and taught me a new lesson about art and about myself. I had to start the journey. 2.) In everything you do you will have your own distinctive voice. You have to learn how to embrace that voice and listen to it.

    Either way, I really have to thank Tony because he re-energized me as an artist. So if you all don't know who he is check him out!
