Jake La Botz for Inked

"Jake La Botz is a creator of dark poetry and haunting song, the kind of music that gets in your bones and rides you for days, a sound and vision only those who've been to the bottom and clawed their way back up can generate. His midnight gifts evoke Hank Williams and Skip James as much as Tom Waits and Dylan. Not everybody will get this music - because not everybody is ready for the truth."  

 - Jerry Stahl (author of Permanent Midnight)

 

WONDERWALL

WONDERWALL

All nighters with Tina Vaden to create one of kind prints, frames and a beautiful celebration of creativity and divinity. Creating from nothing, this experience allowed me to take apart my work, put it back together, as well as take leaps of faith into a mixed media World. It isn't so scary... 

So much more experimenting to do. 

The New : The Who + The Why I Am An Artist

The New : The Who + The Why I Am An Artist

Seems it came time to re-write the who, what and why I call myself an Artist. For darkness is not the only thing within me...

My Precious

My Precious

I took a leap of faith - put my work out there to be seen, to be critiqued, and to be given an opportunity to be shown.  The response has opened another opportunity to throw my work back onto the wall - a series I never thought I would have the opportunity to show in such a matter.

Proving wrong all of my conclusions, proving right to stick my ass on the line.

The Show That Reunited.

Seeing my old classmates is among the lines of a family reunion

When you go through such an experience together, it molds us together

That year, we all went through something, and we all rose to the top.

A narrowed down version of my class, came together to create an opportunity

From start to finish, we made this happen, and it was beautiful.
