I think Anton aka Pink Boy it is because he an altar ego of myself. He is a recently new character I created.
I made Anton to be an inspire to become DJ. His ambition is to become famous DJ. In his private time he like to do watercolour painting.
Anton has two jobs, he works at a video renting store and owns a food vegan truck selling vegan fast food. Anton lives and rents in a small bungalow house in southern America.
The neighbourhood is very suburban, Anton shops at a local store and use his van to travel everywhere.
Anton is very confident, self assured, he know what he wants to achieve in life. He does like his own company. He is very street hood behaviour. most of his teens he was in the street with gangs until he broke away from them. He gets a lot into trouble with the police. So he uses watercolour painting and DJ mixing to avoid the gangs and the police.
Anton is very intelligent and talented but does not know how intelligently he is. He is very out of the box character does things that not the normal which fascinates a lot of people.
Anton sexual preference is men, he was in love with his best friend but there was nothing happen. Anton does feel conflicted with his sexuality because of his background. However there be one person that he be instantly attracted to.
Anton eats a very strict vegan diet, he was traumatised when he was young seeing raw cut meat from the butcher shop and him family would eat pigs heads whole. So pink Boy will not touch anything that is any creature or animal products. So he has to eat a very healthy diet. Which be a problem for his cousin Felix who still eats meat.
Anton’s cousin lives with him. His cousin is in college student. His cousin is younger than than Anton. More fatter than him. His name is Felix, a character I create years ago to be cousin with Anton (pink Boy). They are very different from each other, complete contrast.
Both Felix and Anton are Latin America descendants, Mexico and Argentina. They both live in America.

During November I have been doing small A5 paintings to get me back into painting again. I try out new technique and trying out colour combinations. theses paintings were simple to do. I often allow the painting to dry for 2-24 hours before re apply colours, to make the colours stand out more. I learnt this from a watercolour artist from SAA Youtube Channel. I watched Watercolour artist tutorial and find really good tips on watercolours. I learn alot mostly from traditional watercolours artist.
I learnt to be patience with my work especially watercolouring. use mark gestures to convey a leaf or plant simply.
