What's up everybody I'm back on the drawing table, your brother Clint D Johnson let you know the God I serve is awesome ! welcome to the first installment of Clint D Johnson's Creative to the Core Blog and Digital Journal where we explore art and more. The Allow me to introduce myself (read this like a late 80's rapper) "I'm the C to the to L to the I-N-T, God infused a real creative gene in me, from comics to music and poetry, a talent so valiant is my key." Our focus at CTTC is the pursuit, exploration, and interaction of the realm of creative endeavors. Let me give a special shout-out to Black Business advocate Crystal Mitchell and Digital marketing guru Armand Santos over at the Urban League Los Angeles's Digital Marketing class for assigning this blog project. This dynamic duo is providing the instruction and inspiration to actually start our blogging.
Okay, its been way too long (embarrassing long) since I've actually posted to my blog I'm following up with a challenge from from my instructor Armand Santos to create a tutorial. Since I am an artist, he urged me create a vlog/live stream of a tutorial. Once the live-stream is complete, save that footage and re-purpose it as a Youtube video and top it off with a blog about project and embark upon a weekly routine. Armond's point was for me to get over what ever is holding me back. The only way to do it is to do it. So I'm gung - ho to press ahead. I called my tech genius buddy Alfredo Tigolo of Just Text Al streaming service. Al had assisted me before in my online streaming. Goal was to do a tutorial, I used obs a free software that allows the user to record and stream live to multiple platforms. Ready set go , I'm on air , off and running creating a tutorial of a mans face. Using basic shapes as circles ovals to construct the desired image. As I'm drawing, I begin to interact with my Facebook audience, likes , thumbs ups, hearts and happy faces are in full effect. Im feeling pretty accomplished. As I'm closing what appears to be a successful broadcast I close out to find out that Facebook did not save the footage. What?!! Nothing was archived for me save and upload to Youtube. Cant really express the unfavorable emotions that were running through me.(Sigh). Not sure why it didn't happen, I had to view this as a learning opportunity,
A few days later we were on line at it again. I was drawing logo project live in a program called Clip Studio assisted by my wacom intuis tablet. Alfredo logged into my system remotely with remotedesktop.google.com/access/ We set up Obs to stream to Facebook and Youtube simultaneously.

A little bit more happened as I was on both platforms. While attempting to work on my buddy Mike's drawing I was subject to this cool and awkward experience...watching me stumble and fumble to find my way into the digital marketing space. See you next week as I start my actual drawing tutorial, until then blessings to you and yours.
Please help me build this blog. I will select five random people to draw as superheroes who subscribe to my blog- simply join and share right now! So until we meet again, be thankful, grateful, tell a friend and stay creative to the core.
