I have always admired and drawn inspiration from Ray Charles not just because he gave us some of the most iconic and catchy tunes ever, but because he did all that without his eyesight. Ray started going blind as a young boy and staggeringly still found a way to learn the piano and flawlessly play it. It couldn’t have been easy to find the audacity as a young black blind man to believe he could entertain the masses on the world stage, but he did it anyway. Actually, when I think more deeply about that last sentence, it becomes apparent that Ray wasn’t really thinking about entertaining millions of people… rather, he just followed his bliss which is a serious life lesson. Every time I am in a funk as an artist or as a man period, thinking about Ray’s journey is always a shot in the arm to keep going after it… no matter how impossible “it” seems. This is the fifth piece of work in season 1 of the “Iconic AF” series.

These prints are reproductions of the original painting executed by myself and finished in 2018. They are made on Hahnemuhle PhotoRag Baryta Premium Luster Photo Paper and come in two sizes. It lies somewhere in between a gloss and matte finish, providing you with highly saturated, maximum ink coverage. Luster paper is also resistant to fingerprints, making it a popular choice for photographic prints. Each print has a 0.5" border on each side of the paper to allow for easier matting.

I don’t know where to start! Chuba is an amazing person who helped me with my order so much! From the first message he was always really fast to answer (regardless of the time difference)! I had issues with USPS and Chuba was always there, calling on my behalf, looking into different options, just trying to make sure that I get my gift! And the print... I did not expect it to be such a good quality! When you touch it it feels so expensive! I could not be happier and I will be shouting all over the social media about Chuba and his amazing team! I am so grateful for all your help! Wishing you a very merry Christmas and I hope new year brings you all the success you wish! Laura

I actually get to see Chuba in action while he paints this piece. I also get to see him as a musician, a brilliant scientist, a friend. He does every thing with such a passion, he is amazing in so many ways. My daughter words when she see the print; " Mom, where do you score this?" I flexed: I KNOW the artist! The print fills my room with more energy and makes me feel younger.

Just love it. Framing guy was also quite impressed. The texture is something I can't explain, one-of-a-kind. Great piece.

The drawing is amazing!!! Cubanator is extremely talented and detailed in many of his dawings. I was very excited to receive the Jehovah mug and was blown away by how you could see the pencil strokes still. I think this specific mug would look great without a background. I would order another product from him with the fast and problemless shipping.
