~ Lucid Dreaming ~

























  Giorgio Casu and Layla Love are amazing artists who gave a Country Boy a chance and I would like to thank them  for the opportunity to contribute to their journey.  I've been focused on my photography and artwork lately. I've primarily focused all my energy into art, photographs, and learning the business side of it all.  I've recently obtained my Certificate of Authority by the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance.  Basically, Country Boy done his homework and got the proper paperwork necessary to legitimately sell his work on the streets of New York City.  Crazy huh? Nooooooo. I went to school for 4 years for this? (my poor parents)  What I have learned over the years is that the gift of gab isn't something we all have.  Some are slick and some are good and some are both.  I'm not saying which I am but when I answered an ad on Craigslist for a Graphic Designer job I never imagined in a million years it would manifest into something this spectacular!  This party was done with amazing precision in little or no time.  Everything came together including a wonderful exhibit with the help of just a few others.  We really formed a good team and did a GREAT job!!!  lQQk what we put together.......
  When I first moved to NYC I was a model/actor, but really I was a Cater-boy.  I used to make more money catering than I ever did modeling.  So I started thinking.......Why am I working for these catering companies when at virtually every party these people are asking me to do their parties privately?  I know glass rental companies and where to get horderves geez.  I can do this! I can! So I started doing parties on the side.  Throughout my work with the artists Layla Love and Giorgio Casu, I was able to be used multi-dimensionally.  I helped with the production of their book and I got them blue-blerries from Maine and sushi from Japan, wine from France and nuts from England; there were artists from Sardinia and a Country Boy from North Carolina!!! Wooooooo WHOOOO!!!!  New York City baby, ya never know!

We even had an icon come by the party!  Russell Simmons, what a class act this guy. 

lQQks like a WINNER to me!!!
  All photography for the blog was done by my City Belle.  Thank you City Belle for taking time to come and photograph the event.  I really appreciate all you do and without you I wouldn't have been able to do it.  I love you with all my heart.
