…that time I did an online interview with Voyage Dallas about my artwork.
Once upon a time, there was this guy in Dallas that enjoyed taking selfies & looking at vintage art (mainly Baroque).
He thought to himself one day “wouldn’t it be dope if I was in a vintage painting of an important historical figure?” so this cat searched Google for the flyest, dopest painting that he could find of someone who was larger than life…and that’s when I saw it…Napoleon Crossing The Alps by Jacques-Louis David.
Little did I know that taking on the task of photoshopping myself into that painting would get me addicted to Photoshop & set in motion a series of events that would get me interviewed by an online publication about “The Most Inspiring Stories In Dallas“.
It’s probably not that big of a deal…except that it is. To be recognized for being good at something like Photoshop & being considered an “artist” feels awesome. It feels like I can drop the amateur that I put in front of photographer & the graphic that I put in front of artist…but I won’t though, at least not yet.
Alright, I’m done rambling, so here ‘s the link to my story – Voyage Dallas/Meet Mack Hall
