“My name is Diamond, and I am a visual artist. I am taking my art around the United States on the back of my Motorcycle. My goal is to experience as much art and culture as I can in about a years time. I am from Northern Minnesota so the main goal is to miss the winter here all together. I am heading out September 3rd and going West. The weather will determine the rest.
The bike is a 650 Suzuki Savage, lovingly dubbed Little Wing. This blog is a public journal detailing the adventure; a collection of interesting anecdotes and traveling tales I will collect along the way.”
This is the About post I wrote August 20th, 2014.
I did indeed take the trip, and spent 8 months and 5 days on the road, arriving back in my hometown on May 8th, 2015. It was a great adventure. I learned that I love to write while on the road and so I am currently writing something akin to a future book about the whole expedition. For now I am an independent artist living my life and writing about it still. The continuation of my life story can be found at my artist page. I am retiring this page til Little Wing and I take off again. It served me well, and I am glad you found it and read. Like I said, I am still interesting enough to write about, and I also made some pretty cool art, so feel free to come visit me at my new web home.
