For those that haven't encountered me before in the art or writing forum I'm Brotherman and I am a chronic artist/ recovering writer in a multitude
of styles and mediums and since I am going to be alone for the holidays and been laid off I wanted to talk about the things that Inspire me, the
things I hope to achieve, and dreams I have for next year, and I want to hear about yours, artists, writers, mechanics, underwater BB Stackers, it
Inspiration: As an artist I am generally inspired by so many things portrayed in life especially random people/ Biology, the homeless, architecture
and technology. These are usually the physical forms in which I base alot of my work off of and derive personal meaning from. Artists that inspire me
Jenny Saville, Menton Mathews 3, Peter Paul, Bernini, Da Vinci, Michaelangelo, and Chuck Close. Places that inspire me Bonavenature Cemetary, The
outdoors anywhere, Iraq, Paris France, My houses attic and Grandpas Barn, and ATS. Metal foundries, welding shops and garages also give me lots of
creative food for thought and definatley shows in some of my industrial oil paintings and steam punk style works I have done including a pipe welding
side scrolling game I was working on for awhile.
Hopes: I hope this up and coming year I can learn to be a happier person and become more stable in life. It is rough in the work force where I live
and would like to see wars, economics, and people in general become more stable the environment around me often depresses me and hope to see that
change. I hope to also be able to start working full time welding soon but also be able to work full time as an artist in a newer media then what I am
Dreams: I want to see myself in the future welding less and creating art more, along with a new Wacom Cintiq 24HD art mother effin power plant, not be
poor to where I worry about when I can actually save money and not be negative doing the pay check to pay check. Become a better painter. See the
world change and fall in love again, another renaissance, see people work together to accomplish greater things in science, environmental management
*cough-Fukashima*, and involved and consorted efforts to repair ties in countries across the globe.
I am inspired by believing I have an ability to generate things that make people happy, I hope to do this, I dream to find strength to try harder!
I hope everyone on ATS regardless of whatever has a great season and the new year brings to all of us good times. Thanks for reading and can't wait
to hear what all of you are inspired by Dream and hope for!
