Mixed Kid – Gold Sticker

Here’s a new sticker I created this month. For those actually reading this, I come from a mixed background and I wanted to make some art celebratingG that. Some kids and adults are still struggling with who they are, but I hope artwork like this can affirm their identity.

Mixed Kid Sticker

New Sticker!

What is a “mixed kid”? To me, it is a person who comes from a background with mixed heritage. They can be Black and White, Latin@ and Asian, Indigenous and American, Caribbean and Australian, so many combinations of people are in the world and we all have an interesting story to tell about who we are and where are families come from. There are mixtures of heritage within one ethnicity or skin color, and there are people whose family are from various racial backgrounds. This is for all of you. Me personally I am African American, Korean, Mexican, and Apache and this phrase means something to me.

If you missed it, here is the Blasian sticker and this is the original “Mixed Kid” painting this one is based off.

Mixed Kid

Here’s a new painting I made for fun. It’s a way to show pride in being a mixed kid. What is a mixed kid? Well for me, it means someone who comes from multiple ethnic backgrounds or nationality. But it could also mean a mixture of experiences, countries, beliefs, families, or religions. Take it how you will. If it resonates with you, great!

This is a square print of an original acrylic painting. It comes in two sizes and is inspired by my own multiethnic / multiracial heritage. That’s also why it has many colors.

Children’s portrait Collage 3

So here is the third collage of children’s portraits. I started painting these about 5 years ago. My goal is to hit 100 portraits and I’m almost half way there. I took a short break while working on picture books, but some of these have been in my files that I wanted to share. If you can do me a favor and share this that would be great. Share with parents, grand parents, aunts, uncles, or guardians that would be interested in commissioning a painting of a child.
Here is the FIRST collage
And the SECOND
This is the original video I made to talk about them.
You can email me directly about this at Info@robdontstop.com or visit my Etsy Store where photos of the portraits are.

Children’s portrait 44 – Zulu

I don’t know this young man personally but this was one of the portraits commissioned awhile ago for a kickstarte campaign I ran. This and a copy of my book was a gift for the contribution.  If I recall though, this little one is both Chicano (dad) and African American (mom). His name? I’m glad you asked! He was named after the Zulu Nation (Hip hop community started in the BX, now world wide) and the legendary Shaka Zulu.

Children’s portrait 43- Lucy

This is Lucy! She’s about 5 or 6 I think and she’s a hapa baby. Dad is from Germany and mom is Chinese American. She loves orange, yellow, and red and some symbols of her heritage are in the fabric of her shirt. She has a beautiful smile, no?

Children’s portrait 42 – Ezra

Known this little boy since he and my son were in kindergarten. And his name is Ezra!! I think Ezra is 12 now and I think either me or his mom wanted something reflecting the outdoors and adventure.
