March 16th, 2017. My first time performing at SXSW. The whole East Coast was shut down due to blizzards, my flight was cancelled only to be rescheduled and cancelled again but I still went to the airport and finessed my way on to the last plane out. It was going out of my way but leaving the east coast so I took it. I was put on standby on that flight and was told that when I got to Chicago, I would probably get stuck there cause everything was booked. There was 1 seat left and 5 people on standby before me for that flight. As you can see, I made the flight. If ever there was a sign that nothing can stop me, it was that. Mother nature did her worst, but I'm a bad man, baby ;)🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾
How it all began: My daughter Kylee D, (Team Kylee & Hip Dysplasia Awareness) was diagnosed with Hip Dysplasia at the age of 3. Surgery, Bodycast, Recovery, Repeat quickly became reality for her/us. 😢
Life was going to change. Like it or Not!
A decision had to be made ether my wife or my self would need to quit our job to give our daughter the loving full time support she would need.
The decision was difficult but with my wife having a great job with a great benefit package & me a roofing service technician with no guarantee of an injury free year or 40+ hour's week to week the choice was clear!
With Kylee's mobility being drastically reduced Art was a fun way to bring the world to her.
Constantly finding new ways to bring "The Fun" to her so she wouldn't become bored & restless making the already uncomfortable situation worse for her was challenging at times. Princess, Barbie & Monster High dolls becoming a big part daily play I then became inspired to build her a Monster High doll house.
Frist I built a "Bunk Bed" for the house that became the (Inspiration of a new painting style)
Something that changed the course of my life.
