We had the good fortune of connecting with D’Long Pankey and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi D’Long, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I’ve always been very passionate about art in general and I just had an unexplainable feeling like I was meant to succeed in this so I took some business classes at the college and I just went for broke , but I have to say I learned more from experience all in all

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I have been airbrushing for 30 years now and I’ve done work for celebrities and large companies as well as the average Joe who walks in . I treat everyone exactly the same and though there’s been lots of curves, hills , and valleys in my journey I can say I love every minute of it . I’m not even working , I’m just having fun and getting paid for it .

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Where I live now in Muskegon Mi. It would have to be July so we could go to Michigan’s Adventure and get Scribs Pizza . We would Go downtown to Rebel Road and check out all the motorcycles that come in from all over the county for a 4 day extravaganza . We would also check out the boardwalk downtown for all the seasonal shops that open up for the summer and eat all the street food at the bbq cook offs , and enjoy the beautiful beaches that Lake Michigan has to offer with boating and kite surfing fun .

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to dedicate my journey to all of my people who don’t believe in themselves or were told they can’t because you absolutely can !
