We had the good fortune of connecting with Kenneth Underwood and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kenneth, any advice for those thinking about whether to keep going or to give up?
You always keep going no matter what. If you are truly passionate about what you do giving up will never pop up in your head.

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.
My creative work all stems from inspiration and experience. I am self taught in everything I have learned and apply in my everyday life and though I may not always do everything correct the first time I become better at every obstacle that was thrown at me. I believe experience triumphs anything what school can teach or what people will tell you and that would be the best outcome for anyone else trying to become a creative.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would take them to First Friday in Downtown Phoenix to see all the creative people from Phoenix and then go to The Golden Margarita for their drinks and food.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would love to give a shoutout to the person who made me start following my dreams, Slater Woodall (SlaterXX) an artist from North Carolina who moved down to AZ and worked at my day job and picked me up for my photography and videography skills and got me into the career and business I have started today.
