Ambition is the path to success

Ambition is the path to success

“Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.”
🚲
I won’t lie. Things are challenging right now on several fronts. Keeping my eyes on the horizon and my feet moving forward while taking a step back to assess the direction of the wind and my navigation of it. Reevaluating my partnerships and my roles, shaking things up a little.
🛣️
I welcome the challenge. I will come out stronger and more focused!

Virtual Reality Art Jam

Virtual Reality Art Jam

There’s something special going on tomorrow night. I’ll be doing a live virtual reality art jam at Better Than Unicorns in collaboration with another local artist / student Mikhaila Hines. We’ll be playing with Tilt Brush creating a live 3 dimensional virtual reality painting. This will be a new experience for me and I’m really excited to explore this new medium. It’s free to attend in person, and will also be streaming free online. https://www.betterthanunicorns.com

WHEN: Tomorrow Wed May 16th 5:30 – 6:30 PM
WHERE: Physical – Better Than Unicorns VR Arcade located in the RAMP Studios at 821 Riverside Dr #172, Asheville, NC 28801
Or Online 
WHAT – Experimental art collaboration in virtual reality with Tilt Brush 
WHY – Because we live in the future and we can! All work and no play makes John a dull boy.
