I've always enjoyed art and was pretty decent at drawing cartoons etc. as a child. At some point, I gave up my dream of becoming an artist/cartoonist/computer-animator and decided to focus on something that I thought to be a little more lucrative... law! Well ... I mean I guess it's still A LITTLE more lucrative! Anyway, last semester while doodling in class, a friend of mine asked me if I ever painted. I wasn't painting at the time but I decided to give it a shot. I drove to Michaels and purchased a few canvases and some paint. Turns out, I really enjoy painting! It's a great way to take my mind off of law school sometimes and just what I need to relax after a long day.
Well, now that I have a somewhat growing gallery in my little apartment, I decided to (1) start selling some of these paintings off and (2) try my luck at commissioning a few art pieces. I set up an Instagram account for my work called CanvasesAndControversies because I'm a law student who paints ... so I deal with canvases and controversies. Get it? No? Okay. Well anyway, if you're interested, feel free to check it out. I will leave the link to my new art Instagram below. Let me know what you like to do in your spare time when you need a break from life. I'd love to hear :)
