So ... What's a Cbabi?

Well let me tell you.

It's a Creative Black Artist Battling Ignorance

So guess what? ... You can be a "CBABI" too! I don't mind!

but seriously, i'm a husband, father, and then a painter. I've been blessed with a supportive family and i am just getting started in this art thang y'all. Please come along for the ride. I feel it getting real exciting!

Cbabi (pronounced Kuh-bob-bi) Bayoc is an artist who has always known, and lived, his calling: creating art which reflects his love of music and family. This was in fact the reason he changed his name in 1997 from Clifford Miskell to Cbabi Bayoc. He wanted a name that when said always sent him a reminder of his purpose in life.

Cbabi stands for Creative Black Artist Battling Ignorance and Bayoc (which he waited for his wife to discover) stands for Blessed African Youth of Creativity. Cbabi wanted to have a last name that included the attributes of the wife he was going to bear children with because the last name, he felt, should reflect both parents and not just the father.

Dad #24 is a special gift from Thai-an... "This is our friend Chike McLoyd and his son, Chenzira (Chenzi). Chike was one of my husband's best friends and just after Christmas, he passed away after a short, intense battle with cancer. Chike was an educator and academic by profession but was most proud of his role as husband and father and everything he did was with his son and wife in mind." #365dayswithdad #dadsmatter #dadsandsons #friendship #familyfirst #friendsforever #friendsforlife #cbabibayoc

Had the pleasure of sharing the TedX stage with Dad #23, Jason Purnell: Jason is a great dad because he takes joy in his children, finds their strengths, and helps them to take the next step. Has a special place in his heart for his baby girl, who has special needs and has been there for everything. #fatherhood #365dayswithdad #commitment #daddysgirl #greatfather #gooddadgang #dadsdontbabysit #cbabipainting #fineart #livewithpurpose

Dad #22 from Stephanie Fonteno: When my husband, Quentin, gave our son his name four years ago, he dedicated himself to the role of father. Since then, he has devoted himself to teaching, loving and caring for our son. I see the results of his devotion everyday in our son's thoughtful, intelligent words and his sense of confidence. I enjoy knowing that the sky is the limit for my son thanks to the support he has in this bond which goes far beyond just their names. #365dayswithdad #dadsdontbabysit #cbabibayocpainting #dedication #commitment #fatherhood #qualitytime

Dad #20: When I prayed for a husband I prayed for a man that is intelligent, funny, caring, seeking to know God, honest, handsome, hard working, wanted to be a father and this last one is really important.....HAD A LOVE FOR FOOTBALL. I found all of these things in my husband Andre. He is a loyal son, brother, friend and husband. Andre is a dad that makes me smile. When I watch him play with our daughters and I hear them laugh and see their eyes light up when he comes into the room, I know they will grow into women that will know how a man should love a woman. He is steadfast in his commitment to our home, our friendship and our marriage and still is actively pursuing his own dreams. Happy birthday my beloved husband and may our God continue to bless you....Love Kim. #365dayswithdad #commitment. #friendship #dadsmatter #dadsdontbabysit #cbabibayocpainting #acrylicpainting #acrylic #fineart #publicart
