Duck Force 1. I know it sounds crazy for me to paint my signature Duck Logo design on everything from shirts and shoes to watches. skateboards, canvas and wood but art is my Dream, it’s my passion and I’d rather do it than anything else besides breath.
They ask me what the Duck means...The Duck is considered the Freedom Bird and the bird of adaptability because it can swim in water, walk on dry land and soar to the highest heights.
My Dream was to play football and make money doing it. After dominating at a small college I was signed to the CFL and was later released. When everything fell apart all I knew was to draw and paint as therapy. I then went to work in the corporate world without any direction for my art, my future or my life in general. One day I just decided that it was time to follow my passion and find my freedom.
When I walked out of the corporate
world I decided that I was going to challenge myself and my hustle to rise above the obstacles that are in front of me and be able to withstand the storms of life that being independent brings. But I also knew that if I never quit, I would be able to soar above all obstacles and encourage others to find their freedom and live it. So I paint Ducks on everything because I am making a statement of independence as an artist and as an encouragement to others.
Duck Force 1. I call these the Bessie Blues. Its easy to be everybody else and paint the over saturated stuff but to go on a limb and follow my own creative wave is tough but worth every second. #TheDuckMeansFreedom
