Today was a sign that what I do isn’t for nothing. Having my artwork recognized - and by such influential people - not only as another fan, but as an artist is the greatest feeling in the world. I feel like I’m doing something right, like what I love to do is becoming my career. And it’s becoming something bigger than I’ve ever dreamed.

I am a self-taught artist. Both of my parents are artistic, but are nothing extraordinary. I have been drawing since before I could write. In Macklemore’s words, “The greats weren’t great because at birth they could paint, they were great because they paint a lot.” My estranged father won’t support me in helping me get to my dream art school, because he thinks you can’t survive in this world with an art degree. I knew I belonged at the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) in Georgia since I was 12. I am a 21 year old living at home, working at a dead end job to save as much money as I can. I want to go to SCAD this fall. I work during the day, and I draw all night. I know that one day I will get there. I’m going to prove him wrong. I will be successful doing what I love.

My side job is drawing posters for professional and Olympic athletes for their fundraiser events. My boss is a friend of my mother’s and he creates the athlete events. I mainly work with members of the US Women’s National Soccer Team, and occasionally others. I am creating a business with my artwork too, “LC Morgan Art” and networking with the USWNT. My website, www.lcmorganart.com will be up and running in the next month. If you’re interested in buying my work or seeing my portfolio, be sure to check it out then.

6 months ago, I was supposed to be at Alex Morgan’s event. I ended up not being able to go because of money, and when my boss explained that to Alex, she asked him if she could call me. When Alex Morgan called, she said to me, “You have an incredible talent, I just want to thank you for that. You have the talent and it shows through and I just want to say that I really hope for the best for you, you’re doing the right things and working hard, so keep it up.” My only request to my boss was for a photo of Alex holding my original artwork, for my portfolio. She was more than willing, and he sent me multiple photos, and a month later I received my original artwork and two autographed Alex Morgan jerseys in the mail. I have so much respect for Alex, she truly is a wonderful person. I am SO excited to be working with her again in 2014, along with Abby Wambach again. And I won’t miss those events for the world. Stay tuned for those photos in November.

I am starting to believe in those words. I draw to breathe.

And thank you to everyone who supports, likes, and reblogs my work. I love sharing my creations. Sorry for the wall of text.

Inside Reign: Syd + Pinoe [x]

This interview is extra great because the funny part to them is not that they would never date ‘cause Syd is straight but because it would be the craziest dynamic.
