blakeneubert This is drawing from about 5 years ago. It’s my favorite piece I’ve ever done. It’s the only piece of my own that I have kept and framed. I took a stroll down memory lane on my feed this morning, and I noticed it’s the least liked image I have. That seems to be the way it goes with your own work. As I’m always grateful to have you looking at my work, I was reminded that it took me over a year to get 1000 followers. People have asked me what they can do to get followers, my answer is “I don’t know what people like, but I do know what I like. People are weird - YOU’RE weird. Tell your story. Don’t sensor it. Be you. Practice. Be honest. Talk about the scary uncomfortable stuff you’re hiding from the world with your nice clothes, nice car, nice phone and caramel macchiato. It wasn’t until I embraced the parts of my brain that were hiding from the dogma and “ism” of our modern culture that I was able to find freedom. Lose your mind with your art. Having a bunch of followers doesn’t make you a better artist. Do your thing and people will catch on

blakeneubert True story. Now you tell me a weird story from your life. Go!
blakeneubert I love you guys. Sincerely. While it’s been a surreal past couple of years, I have never taken for granted having you around. But just recently, I have felt an overwhelming amount gratitude for you. I used to dream about people giving a shit about my art. It’s an amazing feeling to share it with people who seem to care about it, and to hear from people who are impacted by it. I hope to meet/high five/hug as many of you as I can before I’m done. Thanks, friends ❤️

blakeneubert Advice to artists, when painting commissions, lock your studio door so 3 year olds can’t do a drive-by Pollock on them.
