Well these past couple months have been VERY busy. First, I got sicker than I’ve ever been in my life. The doctor thought I had Mono. Who gets Mono? Then I moved out of my old apartment into my own art studio in Echo Park! I’m totally loving it and it’s been crazy moving and organizing and trying to feel at home in a place that feels like anything BUT home. I’m in a totally new city, new surroundings, new neighbors, new everything. New has never felt so good. I feel inspired to read more, paint more, and get in touch with myself and where I’m heading in life. I’ve never lived alone so I had to take some time away from the computer to create my little routine everyday. I’ve never had a routine in my entire life so this is very different for me. I’m growing up, accepting who I am, and looking forward to the future. I’m ready to make some awesome work and get back into my blog, sharing my little life and the process of creating my first art show! I have no idea what I’m doing, but I’m hoping to just figure it out.
I’ve been putting my new place together slowly ..
Here’s some new, old, and work in progress since the last time I posted..

Last Sunday I headed over to the Fairfax Flea Market – after not having gone in ages! I’ve been looking at my jewelry collection lately and it’s been looking pretty sad. I tend to lose every ring or pair of earrings I ever buy so I decided to hunt for some new accessories! .. and actually take care of them!
2 hours and $200 later :
I ended up getting a couple vintage muscle tees, a gold pair of triangle shaped earrings, a pair of sunglasses, a gold bracelet, a funky wrap-around bracelet, an artsy iPhone case, a vintage gold chain, an antique key necklace with a long chain (perfect to throw over any t-shirt), and a little girls art work for my room.
Try to check-out your local Flea Market tomorrow! You never know what cool shit you’ll find.

Since my store here on my website is still confused – I made an Etsy account where you can buy prints, shirts, and totes!
Just type in PAUart in the Search engine and shop away!
Prints start at $40
I’ll keep it updated with new stuff,
So check it out and thanks for the support!

A sketch I started the other night– got some details to finish..
(close up )
My man’s birthday was the 11th and he definitely had himself a good time..
I cooked dinner for the fam and thankfully pulled it off! Jordan gave me an A+. Thanks to the help of my 12 year old niece as my little elf. Couldn’t have done it without her!
This is part of a drawing I’m working on called ‘God of Dreams’- hope to be done one day!
Got my puppy Luna a new collar – 5 bucks and its glow in the dark – score!
A pigeon I started in New York City.
Daily art that catches my eye
Caught this one on Melrose. I’m very curious as to what the artist is trying to say….. Blue Man Group are feisty scensters?
Also on Melrose.. I think this is a cut-out of that lady screaming at Kent State because her friend was shot dead. The artist changed the dead guy into a split carton of milk.
This was a colorful mural I saw behind a store off Melrose. Chinese military around the Dalai Lama. I’m not too sure what the artist is trying to signify but it looks great!
(Too bad I got the shadow of a tree in the shot)
Wait .. What?
I don’t know why I like this piece so much.. but I do! Gotta love the random.
This tiger/panther/couger/whatever is dope
Close-up of the detail on his face
Close up of the hand… The beast rules the World?… I guess there doesn’t have to be a meaning behind every piece of art
This is another piece by the same nameless artist – he signs his name with a picture. These street artists love to stay anonymous don’t they…
Loving the detail! Really great work.. I hope to find out who the artist is soon.
