Bio:

blakeArt bio: I have always felt like I was born with the ability to draw. Spurred on by my grade school art teacher, Mr. O’Neill, I carried this vocation to be a professional artist with me seriously up until my junior year in college. I abandoned my BFA pursuits at the University of Missouri–Columbia to get into what I thought would be a more lucrative pursuit of Graphic Design/Art Direction in the Advertising industry. I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, and I am glad I chose the path I did. I am grateful for a consistent career in the world of Advertising, Marketing and Graphic Design. It has given me opportunities to free my mind to explore and absorb knowledge, from the clients I have serviced to all the categories of information from anywhere the world wide web can take me. Because of this Advertising background, I can not only paint, but I also imply the explosive world of digital art to my palette - and this two-pronged media approach that I am focused on right now keeps me fresh with the endless supply of ideas I have stored in my fairly unique brain... and led to this unique idea of ‘Synthesizing of Disciplines’ that has helped me Conjure ‘theJobSpectrum™’. I used to think my ideas and philosophies were strange and too weird for public consumption... but the state of reality and the world we live in today... I don’t think that at all anymore. ‘Art’s task is to Save the Soul of Mankind, and that anything less is a dithering while Rome burns. Because if the Artist, who are self-selected to be able to journey into the other... if the Artist cannot find the way, then the Way cannot be Found.’ — Terence McKenna I have recently adopted the above quote from the great spiritual shaman and philosopher Terence McKenna as a motivational theme to my sporadic yet driven Artistic ‘career’. Planet Earth and the Spiritual Beings that inhabit this reality are ready to evolve for the better. All things that exist at one point or another were once only ideas inside our human minds... we bring this reality into existence... it is this infinite Structure Of Thought® that I try to bring into physical being thru this fairly new digital art form. I believe we can strive to uncover what has always been–a more perfect, more benevolent, accepting, compassionate world–and art can and will show us the way. It is my hope that my Artwork here, of which theJobSpectrum™ is now a big part, leads that charge.
