Alien Red Art
Hello, my name is Joshua Cornett as an artist I represent my self as Tha Alien Red(Alien Red Art) . I’ve had the ability to be creative for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid(4 or 5 y/o.) my dad would give me a pencil and paper, to keep me from causing trouble in church. As a kid in school, I would either be daydreaming, or doodling. For me it’s all about creating something that is amazingly, fantastic, and dope. It’s a love of exploring, different styles, different colors, and just coming up with art that is unique and original.
