The "MB" Lifestyle

I was talking to some of my clients... And they were talking about their jobs, friends, religion, life, etc.....and It had me thinking how blessed I am to be living the lifestyle I live....from my wife,children, to my friends and family...I have crossed paths with some really beautiful people and each one has inspired my soul in many ways....I'm just thankful that the Most High put me here... I will grow towards the sun....the seeds have been planted... I'm ready to see the rest of this world.. And I want to share it and inspire others to do the same... LIVE LIFE follow all your dreams and never limit your "freedom"

It's 6:00am and I just finished putting together my new drawing desk, 2 end tables and 5 bookshelves for my art studio...I was working on my book (Before I'm Gone: The Art & Life of Miya Bailey) I got tired of drawing and decided to open up the boxes....all I need to do is put my books up, but it's time to go home...I need some sleep

Erykah Badu - Window Seat (inspired by Matt & Kim)

Ms. Badu, never stops evolving...I love what she did with the Matt & Kim Video...The same way Andy Warhol took images and flipped them into his own...Erykah Badu has done the same with this a died music industry, this is what is needed...get inspired outside of your normal other never know what you will find.

This is the original video that she got the inspiration from....I love both!

Matt and Kim - "LESSONS LEARNED"


You can forget Blink 182's "Whats My Age Again" it was more funny than serious...but hey they were running around naked before Matt & Kim and the beautiful Erykah Badu.

Rebel 8: HAPPY ENDINGS Wallet

Last week I walked into "True" a nice clothing store I visited on Haight Street in Frisco...Samba bought a DOPE Rebel 8 Nu Era fitted hat...they didn't have my size so I was sad about that...but I will order one off the rebel 8 website...but I spotted a few wallets in the glass showcase...and I seen 3 rebel 8 wallets...they were only $26 dollars and all the designs were amazing...most of yall know Mike Giant is my favorite artist of all I pick the "Happy Endings" wallet...watching Mike Giant brand his company and name over the years is very inspiring to me (I heard he started his comopany with only $500)...from his clothing, stickers, wallets, skateboards, and hats....this man is more than an artist but a businessman....he has laid down the blueprint on how all artist can get PAID!

Follow the Curves

Here is another tattoo I did out in Frisco...tattooing a woman is easy.... Just folllow their natural curves and use colors that will pop off their skin.... You can't go wrong.... She wanted something represent the woman, forever, life, soul, rebirth... With a tribal flow feel.
