Rear-view Nights

Rearview Nights from kalen chock on Vimeo.

here we are again . so many things have happened since 2012 and I cant even begin to write it all out. Learning a lot about my art , myself , and what it is important to my success and most of all my happiness. I can admit that when I was on my art grind I made a lot of sacrifices, being a good friend , being a good son , being a good bf. Looking back at those moments I realized I could balanced those things in my life better. I hope thats something I can improve on in the future 
2015 I think may be a big a year , only time can tell . But this video is a compliation of random memories throughout my life. Looking back at it I cannot stress how lucky and grateful I am to have the opportunities presented before me : )

Texture demo

quick 30 minute texture demo done for my mentor-ship students , explaining different ways to use texture and common problems people run into when using them.

mostly my students were running into a distance/contrast problem with their work , so this was showing how to pick the right kind of texture for the correct distance in correlation to your painting

Mentor-ship Demo

Mixing old and new techniques . Trying to establish the things I liked from my 2009-2012 self that I can incorporate to my current (2014-2015) self.

I think a lot of it for me was being less fearless. I think when I was learning I was more open to trying to new things and really do anything and everything. I think over time I became a little less edgy . I want to see if I can bring that back into my work but with a higher quality and execution.

The Islands

was inspired by a pic my lady sent me tonight so I started up a live stream and painted for a bit , about 2.5 hours total.

thanks to everyone who came into the livestream and showed me love!

So my good homie anthony jones aka :iconrobotpencil:    just created an online video store where he sells some awesome content for penny's to the dollar. 

if you have ever taken a class from him or talked to him in general then you can understand that his ideas and knowledge on life and the overall industry is definitely something worth investing into.

so to see him creating some content for only 2.50$ to 5$ . Man that's pretty crazy . Even I already bought one and he is my best friend lolol.

anyways if you are someone who wants to get into this stuff or just wanna have something to listen or watch while you paint, I would definitely try it out. and give him feedback too so he can give you better content. I mean for only 2.50$ what do you got to lose right?
