2016 RAW Signatures Show.


I'm proud to say that I've successfully made it to a big event like RAW. 

I'm so thrilled and overjoyed that this has happened. Mr. Outsyder has his booth prepared and ready. Back when I was a kid, I never really put much effort into making big plans and creating a presentation to a crowd. I never thought I could do it, but now I look back and realized that the effort that I put into presenting my talents paid off at this amazing show. 

The show is called Signatures, held at the Maison Mercer venue in downtown Toronto. 

RAW: Natural Born Artists, is an organization that bases itself on displaying Visual Artists, Fashionistas, photographers, hair stylists, musicians and really anyone with an artistic bent and creativity. The signatures show was incredible. Michelle, the director of RAW did a fantastic job at putting all of this together. 

I was so honored to be apart of the world. I got to see what real underground artistry looks like. I got to experience how it feels to display your talent to an audience, and how the love is received. 

Here's some pictures.

This Lucy piece is too sick. I don't know the artist is, but he had a couple of pieces like this that was amazing. 

This Dinosaur piece is so amazing. I don't know the artists, 
but whoever it is, did a superb piece. 

Everybody at the show did their thing. It was incredible to be surrounded by talented creatives who displayed their talents to a larger audience. Although, it was my first RAW showcase I kind of have the feeling of really accomplishing something that I never thought I could do. 

Then again, you never know what you can accomplish until you give it a shot and try your very best. Marvelous things can happen and you never know who might see you shine. 

Here's some more pictures from the event.

To end this off, I am so grateful for participating in this tremendous show. I'm stoked to be born an artist and to give the world a look into my world of such talent. I think everyone, no matter who they are should be thankful for the skills and talents they possess as well as who they are as an individual. 

I thank the RAW organization for giving me the opportunity to be apart of this show, the director, Michelle for reaching out and putting me in the show. I know I haven't been blogging much, I hope this episode does much justice for the lack of blogging.

Also, I sold a few prints at the show which was an added bonus... 

All I have to say is, it's important to have a vision for what you want out of life, and to build on that to be successful in life. Each and every one of us can become what we want to be, we just gotta work hard and put forth the effort to make dreams become reality. Nothing really happens overnight. It happens over time.
