Darius Moreno is a freelance artist who grew up in the DMV. He works with oils and acrylics to create stunningly expressive and colorful portraits. He recently did the album cover for GoldLink’s album ‘At What Cost’, which has really been getting the spotlight from places like The Fader and Noisy. I’ve been a fan for a few years so it is great to see him getting some much-deserved attention.

I was wandering through Instagram’s explore feed, and I stumbled upon a page full of beautiful serpentine creatures. Corey Woods Reptile Instagram page is a beautiful display of snakes. They are arranged in an aesthetically pleasing fashion, often being arranged by color and pattern intensity.

Minnie’s use of brush pens and gouache and watercolor paints has really inspired me to find my own style of art. Her videos on youtube are so well made and the content always inspires me to create. It is so inspiring to see another young black woman out here being great.

This past Friday I took a visit to Richmond, VA to go visit VCU. I am highly interested in their Graduate program at the VCU Brandcenter so I set up a meeting with one of the admissions counselors. She was so sweet and the school was gorgeous. The weather was absolutely perfect.

When we were finished, I suggested to my mom that we go visit the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts while we had some free time. So here are some of the highlights from our museum visit! I will be making some art based on the inspiration I got from the many many beautiful and historical pieces we saw.
