As with anything worth while the hurdles and dead ends have been numerous. This is the inherent challenge of being self taught. The beginning of the story of Josh as an artist should focus on the raw materials; a sense of wonder, playfulness, and an inquisitive nature. A boy completely immersed in drawing. With its meditative and insightful qualities creating art was a severe addiction that continues today in his dedication in refining his skills as a painter. The focus of his upbringing was integrity, hard work, and individuality. Creating murals and scenic art for film and theme parks led him to New Orleans where Josh sold paintings on Royal Street to people from all over the world. Stormy weather inspired an empty pocket trip cross country and was instrumental in his exposure to the beauty of the southwest and California. In addition to painting, he loves his garden and can often be found afloat on the ocean.
“I started doing these paintings years ago and have recently revisited them, due to peer pressure. And I am so glad! I have many more on the way, from cerebral literary references to potty humor and just goofing off. If you have an idea that you would like to see painted in LEGO I am open to commissions. You can also order a limited edition giclee print. They are in editions of 1000 and are of the highest quality and ready to hang on the wall for as little as $150.” -Josh Talbott
