McClaine believes his most important skill, however, is paying attention to keen details others would ordinarily overlook.

Experimentation has played a huge role in his growth as well, figuring out what works and what doesn’t work.

McClaine’s art speaks for itself, and it’s because of such that he believes he’s something the world’s never seen! In the future, he plans to be somewhere in the sun with his family, providing for them and his community. “Infinity is a lot longer than anything than we can fathom because we’re only here for a moment in the grand scheme of things.” Always move #CloserToYourDreams
