what's up? i enjoy drawing, it allows peace of mind in a jacked up situation. my art is like a peaceful state of mind. my talent is a gift from God so it's been a blessing for the last two years. i've been on the grind drawing since i was 5 years old in the lafitte project in new orleans in the 6th ward, thats where im from and before katrina i wasn't drawing anything. the passion for drawing left me but God still kept my blessing with me. i have to be in a comfortable situation to createbruce art. before katrina both of my grandparents passed and that messed me up, they were my support in every way. i formed taurusdabullcreations as a dedication to mr james and maritha abrams. after they passed i moved out the lafitte into a real shack something worser then a dump; dont trust a jive landlord. i didn't feel like being creative in that dump so after six months a pimp moved out but i moved with a wolf in best friend clothes. what i mean is a homeboy who ain't real, watch them jive people they out there. i lived in that hell for a year and towards the end of my living there i was back to drawing again just to get peace from things. i had 20 bands they were looking good. i had that fire back due to a hater, his dog pissed on my bands. do u know how much that was worth? so that was it, i got out and got my own place. i did way better and lived better without jive people around me, thats real and i drew 10 more bands and then katrina came took everything a pimp had. so i went to atlanta, wasn't liking it to big then i went to minnosota, too cold but while i was there, i started drawing again. i had 25 bands i had sold some and gave a few away. after 3 months there freezing my fingers off, i headed down south. i came up with the idea of donating to the local highschools in new orleans such as walker, cohen and my alumni j.s. clark and i got into four art festivals, the soulfest, the eden fest, the freret art market & the boogaloo. i had applied for 1 art fest and they didnt want me. its cool i use them jive people as inspiration. im also donating my art to 8 black college bands. i know u want to know and i'm go have the jefferson parish as well and the catholic schools to go check that out im using my gift to please my fans, to pay bills and raise my kid and nephews and neices and to win artist of the year. lol. i'm the best at what i do and that's that. holla at me let me know which art piece u want to get. y'all be cool and thank u for spending time with me.
