Welcome to my little slice of digital real estate on the internet. I'm glad you're here.
I've been locked up since June 6th, 2013. I have ADHD, and being stuck in a cell most of the day didn't help the relationship between me and my cell mates. As a meditative therapy I taught myself how to draw. It started as simple sketches, but I've improved my technique and picked up new ones along the way. It's been fun and has sustained me throughout my time. Over the past six months, starting around December 2018, I started painting and fell in love with it. Unfortunately, at the beginning of 2019, the prison stopped selling paint, but everyone here is going through the channels to try and talk them into selling it again. I couldn't wait, however, so I started making my own paint. I use crushed up chalk and toothpaste, and have had to reteach myself some of the techniques...but it is working. That ingenuity earned me the nickname "McGyver", and now other artists are trying the same recipe and painting methods. In all, I believe they're finding it both fun and challenging to do.
