Countdown to Cloud 9: Seth

Seth recalls that he has been working on his art since was seven years old.

“Cloud nine means, like, Jesus; that God gave me the talent, the gift of art.” 

He expresses his talent in making comic-inspired art, digital art, sculptures, and particularly enjoys making portraits of celebrities.

Seth’s portrait of Eddie Murphy is a staff favorite.

 

He loves getting feedback from others, especially strangers who might not be familiar with his work. Seth has aspirations to be an art teacher and role model for children with disabilities someday.  

“[B]ecause, myself, when I was just a little kid, used to do artwork– back in the past I did stick figures. And now that I’m 34, I want to build my self-esteem– become solo, [be] a role model.”

He’s currently a role model for his two godchildren, Naomi and Hakeem.

Seth has attended Make studio since 2016: “[I’m an art master, a professional . . . [following] “in the footsteps of Jerry Willams.” Seth has known his friend Jerry, the first Make Studio artist, since many years before either of them worked at the studio. 

Seth’s recently completed painting is a mash-up between Batman and Chun-li from Street Fighter, and he’s just completed his painting (below) of “Marvel vs. DC” comics characters.

“It came out real good, came out marvelous. . .it took a lot of work– it was worth it.”
