Today my 5 year old cousin was playing with her toy cell phone. She said she was talking to Martin Luther King Jr and thanking him for all that he did for African Americans. She said she told him about her cousins (my brothers who are adopted from West Africa), that they were beautiful and black and that she was so thankful that because of him they could go anywhere she could. Thats pretty freaking great, I hope more kids are like Liv because if they are there might be hope for the human race yet...

I'm amazed and disturbed at how quick one can lose who they are. How the words and actions of others can mean so much more than our own. How the approval of everyone around us can become so important that we must love what they love and hate what they hate... even if its ourselves. It makes no sense and yet the past has never been so clear to me... I just hate looking back, but the beginning of our stories are still a part of them, no matter how hard. I also believe that part of me needs those bad times, because even what I view as 'bad' has shaped me in a way that maybe would have never happened without the struggles in life. Either way, it will always be there. I can't forget but in the same respect, I can't dwell on it. In July I leave for art school... my demons won't be coming with me...

sketchbook post

so here's the explanation: my bro kyle lost a tooth to a corndog, how anybody does that i don't know. but anyway it fell out and he bit down on his tooth, he said, "I thought it was a seed, but then I was like wait- corndogs don't have seeds!" and basically a story like that deserves an illustration with it.

a change in the wind

i've spent way to many nights
fighting with something that can't be beaten
trying to win when i know that i can't
time doesnt stop
i can't change that
but what does change is everything
the wind
my defintion of love, friendship, home, myself
me, im guilty too
God is the only thing that stays the same
and i think i can live with that now
