We had the good fortune of connecting with Jason Lopez and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jason, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
I think starting your own business is a wonderful idea. It will come with challenges and rewards beyond your imagination. It sets the stage to really see what you are made of and what you can do with your own two and hands and know how.
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.
Well as a artist I think what sets me apart from other artist…is..ME!!.. There is no other person on this planet that thinks or acts like me. I am able to take others to different world. Take them out of their normal 9-5 life if even for a second and bring them joy and a new way to view art. The thing that I am excited about the most is a series project I am working on called “ZuFu: A Tails Tale”. How did I get here??…I HAD A LOT OF MONEY AND RIGHT OPPORTUNITIES…..is what I would say if that were true. Honestly I had a lot of set backs, scrapes, and falls with friends who had the same dreams and ambitions. It was and still is not easy. I overcame them by associating with right people and changing my bad habits. I want to the world to know I AM SOMEBODY YOU SHOULD BE PAYING ATTENTION TO BIG THINGS ARE ON THE HORIZON. MY DREAMS WILL PEIRCE THE HEAVENS!! (poses like Kamina)
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Oh…Man…well lets see. We are in Atlanta…so I would have to say first stop would be the “International Cafe” off of Buford Hwy….BEST HOT WINGS IN GA! PERIOD!.. then the Milkshake Bar in atlanta….enough said….they bring everyone to the yard not just the boys. lol! I personally like going to Battle and Brew in Roswell good food video games and sometimes a cool DJ. My all time favorite thing to do in Atlanta is to go to MJQ’s and dance with all my dancing friends and groove to the music!. If your lucky you would get to see who I believe are the top 4 dancers in GA! Enrique Stallworth, Leonardo White, Nnamdi Osimiri, and Andrew Underwood. Man its a show! Yea there are so many fun things to do in Atlanta I don’t have enough time to mention them all
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Yes, my wife Stephanie Lopez I could not have done this without her. Her support and belief in me is what keeps me going. Those days where I feel like I want to give up, pack up, and quit. I hear her voice telling me “You can do it, your getting better and better.”
