When I met Adam Parsons, I was immediately impressed on so many levels. He is in that small category of people who are highly creative yet incredibly disciplined and committed to his craft. He does not simply talk about ideas, he puts his ideas into the practical everyday. Have you heard the phrase, "to truly become great at something, you need to put in 10,000 hours?" Well, this guy has done that and more when it comes to his art.
Adam has created thousands of pieces of art dating back to his teen years. And most of his art has never been seen. I've seen some of those pieces, and let's just say....they are good (understatement). Adam has often told me that he HAS to create art. For him, creating art is the same as oxygen is to humans. It's his passion.
In addition, Adam is the founder of MOLD, which is a branding company. He has written The Valley of Rhyme, a children's nursery rhyme book. Currently, he is in the process of writing The Times of Rhymes and chronicling his endeavor through a documentary. That should be good! He is an illustrator, a poet, and a creative genius.
If Adam could speak to young people today, his message would be: Endurance Wins! Listen as he explains what he means by this phrase. It's really good!
