Hello friends, fellow watchers! How are things going? Any suggestions or ideas for me to work on this weekend?
Hey. So now we're doing statuses? I SURE hope DA isn't becoming a social site. :(
My Artistic Journey by The-Port-of-Riches
My Artistic Journey
My Artistic Journey - the original image.

Longing for a future that is desired.
Standing in the present that stands before me.
Accepting the history that is behind me.
Moving forward to an unknown future.

Tell me what y'all  think, and take a look at the final entry!

My Journey - Now And Forever More by The-Port-of-Riches
My Journey - Now And Forever More
This is my entry into the Artistic Journey Challenge.
Each image presented here along with the artistic "Road" template used, represent a part of my journey through 24 years of existence.

A majority of my life has been spent in art. Almost all of the artwork I have now, have in some form, been created before - whether written down, or sketched.

So let us begin at the beginning of this record as presented:
The soldiers represent my war with schizophrenia and the voices.

The man holding the lit globe represents my ideal self, and love of worldly knowledge.

The lit globe represents my personal beliefs, and the knowledge of the Earth that I've accumulated over a lifetime of learning.

The honor guard with the flag, represents the city of One Peace. The city of One Peace, is the city of my mind - it's structure, organization and values.

The flag itself represents my internal self - the nationhood that is my beliefs and values.

The man pictured in the corner is me, as I currently am. He represents myself as a valued member of society, and the future I hope to encourage in our youth to remain imaginative and mindful of the world they live in and it's inhabitants.

The background image is another 3D render of the globe presented. This represents my personal world. My history, values and beliefs as they are internalized in my personal world view.

The sun in the background of my ideal self's head, represents a bright future. This bright future exists in all of us, and we are all capable of achieving it. No matter what that may be.

Everything I've ever experienced, fought for, fought against, and cried over. All in one image.
I personally wish I could ad more, but what I have is enough for now.

Sorry, all. I've been absent as of late because I'm busy working on my novel. Once I complete the first part of three, which, god willing, is done by Friday, I'll celebrate by uploading some new artwork! Wish me luck!

The-Port-of-Riches
Isaac Thomas Riley
Artist | Hobbyist | Film & Animation
United States
From Boston, Massachusetts. Born and raised.
I am a starving artist and lover of love. A decent human being who wants to be loved and adored not by many, but by those few who've chosen to stay.

I was born in April of 1990 to a mixed-race family. My mother is Puerto Rican and my father African-Brit. Me and my brothers are as close as can be. (My baby step-sister has nothing to worry about.)

For most of my life, I designed and created music and literature. Only recently branching out into the joys of 3D animation. Like all youngsters with Asperger's, I thrived in my own elements of knowledge building and hard work. Unlike most youngsters, I was unable to read full sentences till I was nine, and yet I ended up thriving as a writer today. Middle and high school was rough for me. Bullying both social and racial bred resentment in my peers and ultimately friendship in some few who dared explore my mind.

College was even harder as I started to venture out into the world dealing with Schizophrenia and my dual diagnosis of Asperger's and Autism. But yet I continued to thrive. After a short crisis in high school, I vowed to push myself as hard as I can in a positive direction, and with that I have been successful.

In my formative years with 3D animation, I took care of three dogs (Huska, Goyo and Munchie) as well as two cats (Jasper and Alice.) I nearly fell through the cracks by the time I started college, but pulled myself together with help from my few friends. Quiet and philosophic as some might say, I've developed a close relationship with few people - all of whom continue to guide me today.

I've never had a romantic relationship, as I've found myself too immersed in my hobbies to have one, but as of late, since moving to Raleigh North Carolina and having no friends around to assist me and my mother/guardian adjust to life down south, I've found myself seeking someone to hold.

My new challenges are tough ones, but I'm sure that at some point I'll overcome them. I want to go back to school for writing and music theory to have better tools to develop my two greatest interests, and I also want to start having a small social life down here in Raleigh. Maybe also start working to help pay the bills in the house.

But like all challenges, I will overcome, persevere and grow. Hopefully there will be more people to help see me grow down here as there are up north.

So I leave you, my friend, with this. What's in a name?
I = Innovative
S = Smart
A = Accepting
A = Accomplished
C = Caring

T = Talkative
H = Hopeful
O = Outspoken
M = Musician
A = Able
S = Safe

R = Respectful
I = Impressive
L = Loving
E = Explorer
Y = Youthful
