Meet Channing Cook Holmes

Today we’d like to introduce you to Channing Cook Holmes.

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
Always been a kid of curiosity, which lead to the creative outlet of who I’ve become. Once I figured out the breakdown of mechanics of items or functionality of how things are put together and built, I started cutting out the middle man. This was the birth of my co. C. HOLMES COLLECTION. Fashion, Music, Art & Design. From being a drummer who was interested in fashion to a Tap Dancer who was interested in designing my shoes, I couldn’t wait for different company’s to make something that I felt worked for my esthetic, so I figured it out, how to make my drums that worked for my specs or shoes that would match closer to my outfit—to me, creating custom fashion accessories like bow ties and pocket poppers to custom $TICKBAG$ to match my drum set. These were the new details I was seeing myself representing under my Brand.

Please tell us about your art.
I use a statement of “No Excuses!” Which is a harsh way of saying figure it out. I’m in the middle of several music projects that are all being creating on my IPad Pro in GarageBand. Sometimes it comes down to the quality of song, music, execution and delivery. We don’t need the fancy studio, big name corporate endorsements, sponsors, team, etc. get it out!!! Things are so fast now that people aren’t worried about what you are doing past that one post or 1:00 clip we post. Content and building a catalog of work is the long payoff.

Do you have any advice for other artists? Any lessons you wished you learned earlier?
Advice would be more of a figure out who you are. Take time to invest in self-understanding, education and that’s not just school. Study other artists. The ones you look up too. Learn from people’s mistakes or things you notice that you don’t like. Business included.

How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
All the Platforms. Hahaha
