You know how you see someone on the internet all the time, you admire their work, you love to see them shine but never think you will meet them. I was so excited to find out that Demont Pinder would be painting live at Afram this year.
You’ve seen his work all over but may not know who he is. He has a sweet job as the art director for Raheem Devaughn but he uses his talent in so many other ways. He does the historic Howard Theater and so much more.
Check out some of his work below
At Afram he was offering fans and new comers the opportunity to be a part of one of his paintings. You know I had to grab a brush and join in. He had outlined a very intricate piece and people had a chance to grab a paint brush and be a part of one of his masterpieces. I did this black part lol
Don’t take My word for it. Check him out online
There are a lot of BLAZIN designers popping up all over the place. With the invention of sites like Instagram, facebook, Pinterest and Youtube we are are getting introduced to talented individuals we may have never even known existed. From city to city, coast to coast I want to shine the spotlight on those who impress me most. I will be bringing you interviews with some of the hottest established and up and coming clothing designers that I run across as I blaze my own path of fame across the net. Let’s get it on!! Time to meet one of them now.
Q1# I first became aware of your clothing brand about a year ago when another local model I had
attended some shoots with was rocking one of your shirts. How long have you actually been
building your brand?
Its been a little over two years now, and I love it. A couple people actually ask to wear my clothing and that’s when I remember, I love what I do. So yea a rough two years. Something that started as a college hustle.
While I’m working hard to boost the popularity of this site I’m also working hard to brand it on social networks. Daily, on Facebook through our fan page https://www.facebook.com/spotlightontalent I post tips for writers, contests, artwork and videos of amazing talent. To check us out on Facebook either click the link above or the facebook like box in the right hand side bar. This site and our social networking pages are designed SIMPLY to provide a platform for aspiring and established talent to promote themselves and gain valuable information that can be critical to their careers.
This site isn’t JUST about interviewing and promoting hot talent but also to provide a place that offers a range of resources that can assist talents of every type. You will notice the resource guide area at the top of the page and in the left hand side bar. Just as I am constantly seeking talent I am also seeking businesses and resources to add to the resource guide. So Email and tell me about your business and lets get you added.
Here’s just a few examples of the type things shared through our facebook page. I would hate for you to miss out on great talent or an opportunity to get your own work out there.
