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.
comes from Deborah... My dad loved his grandchildren and prided himself on offering adventures! The orange VW Karmann Ghia was affectionately known as "the pumpkin". In this picture, grandpa is slowly driving the neighborhood showing off his handsome grandsons- who are thrilled to be riding in the open air. My dad/grandpa has been gone only 3 years. This Tuesday (Feb. 21st) would be his 91st birthday.

Dad # 18 comes from Hristina: "Our son, Simeon, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia on 3/26/16 at age 10. He started a tough chemo regimen a few days later that lasted until November. This photo was taken at the end of may 2016, when simeon was admitted to the hospital because of fever. He was so drained, so sick, so weak. I took this picture in the morning, after I had spent the night at the hospital, and right after Brad had come to the room to hang out with simeon for a few hours so I can go home. We switched off like that when simeon was in the hospital. We have a daughter and a dog: brad took care of them at night, and I took care of them during the day." #bethankful #familyfirst❤️ #teamwork #365dayswithdad #365DWD #ilovebeingadad #cbabibayocpainting #dadsmatter #dadsdontbabysit
