there is something larger than what we can exactly grasp tethering us to one-another through art.
our project is an act to thoughtfully define the mysteries we face when consuming things favorably created by man. in example a common witness to creativity is transmutation of anxiety and fear into light.
thankful we are for this ability without it many would feel overwhelmed and lost.
we passionately believe that art saves lives.
we have countless examples of someones favorite musician writing into words and sounds letters of encouragement helping to relate in times of trouble or dread. sometimes these forms of expression keeps the listener going to the next day capable of taking on conflict knowing they are not alone.
often we’re notified how our journey making artwork motivates others to accomplish a variety of ideas and goals.
art is a phenomena that introduces worlds to those who couldn’t see them before.
in 2014 before this brand existed we crossed paths with the band known as Silent Planet.
we were set up with original card stock illustrations selling artwork outside of the venue.
not having any money at the time, we attempted to make our entry fee to see them perform from art sales.
Garrett Russell noticed me and immediately wanted to support my art. i admit, it was very unexpected to me because i was so used to bands having an arrogant rock star mentality. that wasn’t the case whatsoever. not in the slightest.
during the night we experienced immense syncronicities and dejavu. while they performed i channeled a message into an illustration. it was a broken planet, some honey bees, and a script “the meek will inherit the earth”. this imagery was inherently significant to us all.
this phenomena led to my never ending journey of understanding these complexities and blossomed my relationship with them. it’s been five years since and the universe continues to bring my artwork to new cities. Silent Planet just so happens to arrive at each one. unplanned.
together we write our story out for others to read.
together we share our passion for art, for it is truly our calling.
as the years pass and pages turn, we unconditionally follow our art inspiring hundreds and thousands in our path.
this is what it means to save a life through art.
