At the Barber Shop

I was at the barber shop the other day and ran into my homegirl, Naturee....i see she was cutting off all her hair...most of the time when a person do that it's for "rebirth".... Cut it off and dead that negative energy... So I wanted to show my love & support to all my brothers & sister cutting their crops and making room for new positive energy....sometimes you have to leave the material world to learn yourself...something as small as cutting off your hair is a good start to a new beginning and a new lifestyle....

Starting your day right....

I wake up around 8am-9am every morning... Thank the Most High... eat a good breakfast... Jog a few miles a day.... Work on my book for about 4 hours.... Take Rabbit to the dog park then walk over to City of Ink from my art studio....they say the way you start your day has a lot to do with how the rest of your day will go...between walking to work and the dog park I check my email, twitter, facebook... Or write a blog ... Try to start your day with positive energy... Thank God for another day on Earth... And don't waste a minute of your life... Even the small things count.

What is "Black Art"??

Check out my lastest short interview..on the topic of "Black Art" a lot of people confuse me with doing "black art" because I'm black...but my subject matter is dream, love and imagination...I guess that would confuse people who don't really LOOK at the art and study what I'm trying to do...just check out the video...I will be doing weekly video blogs so be on the look out for the youtube channel "Miya Bailey"

The Dancer Tattoo

This 5 hour session kicked my ass yesterday.... I guess Im getting old because I feel it all in my back this morning... But at the end of the day I really enjoyed doing this piece...trying to get away from the "tattoo" feel...I came at this piece like it was a painting... A "Skin Painting" I wanted hard bold line work... With soft smooth black & grey shading to give it a soulful painting feel...she sat good for 5 hours... But I could tell it was starting to hurt her in the last 30 min...she made it and I finished it... Here you go...there is only one "City of Ink" and we do skin paintings there not just tattoos...

The Homeless....

No matter how hard of a time we must stay thankful for the little things we are blessed is a struggle and we all cross paths for a reason...sometimes we even question friendship & loyalty but at the end of the day we still have each other.... Some people have no one.. Not good friends or even bad friends... No family... They have no one....walking the streets alone one to call in a time of need... It's makes me think how blessed I am... How blessed my friends & family are... And how even in the dark moments we have each others back...we have a place to rest our heads at night.. We have food to have people who will listen to you when you need to vent thankful y' thankful for the little things....
