Art to connect you with your inner alien by Christian Shaddock
Testing, testing…shaddockcreative, come in!
Hi, thanks for visiting! I am an artist, educator, and dad, and also alien, from Houston, who moved to Austin after everybody kept telling me I reminded them of Austin, or they saw someone who looked like me in Austin, and when I stayed here for a few months in ‘93 I liked it but moved away because my allergies went haywire… happy to report that although I did have massive reactions after I moved back here in ‘03, like my eyes literally swelling up til I couldn’t see during cedar fever season, I am now, only by the grace of God, allergy free! Takes a few years to get used to, so don’t despair if this happens to you. Maybe it is like psychology, you just push on through with a brave heart and things get better eventually!

Jk, this site is found, and is friendly!
PS I don’t speak code… yet, having eschewed technology for a hippie-sequel art and music based Luddite lifestyle. And so it is with great difficulty that I am struggling to learn AdobeCC at the moment so that I can adapt to 21stC life. My experiences include participating in helping to raise four children, creating artworks in a variety of media, exploring songs and rhythms from a variety of traditional cultures, and spending as much time as possible in Austin’s great outdoors!
After many teaching years, I have decided to devote myself to art creation. I am currently acquiring digital skills in order to become a freelance artist, illustrator and/or graphic designer, despite my difficulties dealing with the social realm, so we’ll see if I can’t just make a go of it from here, in my happy little home. Join me in my weird and wonderful journey through this thing called life, and I promise you will at least find something different to see here on the site.
Soon I will be uploading my own… unusual artworks to this page, so please check back for visual delights, and I hope at that time I can help you connect with your inner alien!
Now, please enjoy the included stock images, courtesy of Adobe, while I prep my site for 3… 2… 1… launch! (Stardate September 2021)
Get Free Y’all
and get small y’all
But while I’m here, I may as well rant, but maybe you don’t want to think that much about the state of human life in the future, because… maybe you don’t have descendants, but hey, we could save, you know, some (X) amount of nature so when the aliens do get here, at least we have something to show off. Go Natural Baby Yeah! Huh! Yop!
Neither here nor there, they used to say, but now it’s more like here and there, at the same time, only existing for us as one or the other once made real by our perception… a world of possibility!
Oh yes, and while we are at it, Preserve Culture, too
and people, and animals, and aliens, and everything in between.
Well, actually, I said I was using stock images, but a few of those images are my own (the flowers, ice rainbow, Mexican plaza, and dog, our sweet dog, Willah). Couldn’t help it!
A full launch with fries and a drink will be available soon, so if enjoyed the ideas presented, please comment and/or check back with shaddockcreative.com next month. Nanu nanu y namaste
