Nationalism is one hell of a drug

its the anti blackness

As Mesut Özil so eloquently states: “when we win I’m German, but when we lose I’m Turkish”. If you look different society’s love for you will always be conditional, if you don’t benefit them they’ll make sure the world knows you don’t belong. If Osaka loses another match or tournament they’ll go back to calling her a “hāfu”.

“If my theory of relativity is proven successful, Germany will claim me as a German and France will declare me a citizen of the world. Should my theory prove untrue, France will say that I am a German, and Germany will declare that I am a Jew.” - Albert Einstein

It is starting to get cold again. And the darkness is coming a little earlier every night. However, the moon manages to remain beautiful everytime I see it, even though the nights are kinda lonely when it's not there. But there really isn't too much I can do about that.

I still haven't gotten my traditional art back. But I guess I'm starting to get used to it. My canvas is now a plasma screen and my brushes have been replaced with a Wacom pen tablet. Fair exchange is no robbery, I guess. Still...

I miss it...

This is the latest piece I completed.


Though this piece was deeply personal to me, and though I put my heart and soul into it, I am feeling as if my feelings didn't shine through. I think that this one was only personal to me and that it doesn't speak to the heart I was reaching for. But I guess that can't be helped. Especially since I can never be with those I paint.

Sometimes I feel like the wolf howling at the moon--it will never know if the moon heard its voice, or whether its love song was lost in the vacuum.

Here are some works in progress:

Rhapsody of Sublime Decadence


Listlessly Restless


That's all for now.
