undergrad life

Pieces of Blaq 

So through the power of social networks I met Mr. Desmond Blair. He’s a super talented artist. He does simply amazing work. After random conversations on twitter I stumbled across a time laspe video of him painting Erykah Badu.

Kicker?! Desmond was born with no hands. This really gave me a kick in the ass. From watching him paint I lost the “I CAN’T” attitude towards different aspects of art.

Mr. Desmond Blair.

Being strong willed and determined propels you to unimaginable places. Desmond graduated high school at 16 and went on to finished college at University of Texas at Dallas where he now Project Manager for the UT Dallas Institute for Interactive Arts and Engineering (IIAE).

Mr. Blair has always been open to sharing thoughts, ideas, pointers, and super cool music to vibe to while painting. Hopefully soon we can meet up and paint at the UTD studio.

The Lesson to be learned: NEVER GIVE UP! NEVER SAY I CAN’T!
