Artist Statement:
My art is based on emotion and expression. It is my version of Neverland, a place where I am at peace. My work tells stories related to my life and my state of mind. I attempt to illustrate ideas through the lens of life as I see it.
I receive inspiration through music. My style is urban, modern. Some of my work is inspired by Asian culture. I feel that culture brings a sense of true serenity to my canvas. Art has been a savior in my life. I will continue to create.

Big Break:

i've been in contacted with Steven Pearson since July 6, 2012.
i emailed him

"Good afternoon-
My name is Daney L. Nelson and I am the son of Daney Sr. who works security at the arena. I contacted you once before, back in December. First off, I want to apologize for being so inconsistent with keeping in touch. I have been busy with school and dealing with a couple personal events the past few months. 

I am planning to graduate in December 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts degree. My main goal is to work in the art media industry and I was wondering if you'd be willing to schedule a meeting with me. I visited your website and I was very interested in what you, and your company, do. I feel like I could learn a lot from your company. I've put together a digital portfolio of my work, containing digital and canvas pieces. 

I would love to talk with you and discuss future opportunities that could make me a better artist. I understand you are busy, but if you could find the time to meet with me, I'd really appreciate it. My contact information is (801) 884-7316, or you can email me at the address above. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this email and I hope to hear from you soon.

Daney L. Nelson"

I've emailed Karen Yung, a former employee at EA games on November 2nd 2012. she referred me to the GM of EA games Candy. i've sent her my information and i have yet to hear from her. i remailed her on November 3rd 2012 but i still haven't heard anything.

On July 6th, 2012, I emailed Dre' Arceneaux of Arceneaux Graphics in denver colorado. things have been really crazy on both ends of the road but we've stayed in contact. i'm suppose to have a Skype meeting with him this Saturday December 8th, 2012. i'm awaiting further information.
