More importantly than me not believing him is that I DO believe HER.

And I’m not just talking about the Senate hearings. Women exist as whole human beings completely on their own… not just adjacent to men.

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

Like Raindrops On My Window - 12/02/2009

Posted by Natiq Jalil on Monday, June 13, 2011, In : Retro blogs 
There are few things in this life as endearing to me as the sight of raindrops on my window. We are at that time of year where there are few rainfalls left. Warmth is leaving the air and a chill is invading the night. A different form of beauty is preparing to take the stage...

...though her touch is cold, she is not without her own charms.

Though the clouds will obscure my view of the moon, I can still watch with childlike wonder as snow falls to the earth. I can allow myself to be moved by th...

Posted by Natiq Jalil on Monday, June 13, 2011, In : Retro blogs 

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 painting like this... - 07/21/2009

Posted by Natiq Jalil on Monday, June 13, 2011, In : Retro blogs 
There are few things so deeply personal as art to an artist or religion to a believer.

I really do believe that.
 
This is a painting I did a long time ago, called "Beautifully Broken, Sadly Perverse". I did this at one of the lowest points of my life. Finishing this painting meant so much to me and represented so many things.

I am still having trouble with my traditional art at the moment, but I have high hopes for the future. I will get my art back... I truly believe that now.

I must paint my way out of this Waking Dream - 05/27/2009

Posted by Natiq Jalil on Monday, June 13, 2011, In : Retro blogs 

  It is now the first thing in the morning for me, and I really don't want to be awake right now, to be honest. But at the same time, I don't want to be asleep, either.

     I think that today is a day that I need to paint something. I don't know what it is, but I'm sure that if nothing else, something will get painted today. It has been forever since I've completed any traditional work, and honestly, I really don't feel quite like myself, lately. Don't get me wrong, digital work is great and ...

Here's to new beginnings and long overdue endings. (Except) - 05/22/2009

Posted by Natiq Jalil on Sunday, June 12, 2011, In : Retro blogs 
***This was a long blog speaking about some of my personal feelings that were affecting my art at the time. I cut out all of the personal stuff and just left the art. The original post can be viewed here: 

All melancholia aside… here are some of my recent pieces. Feel free to comment on them, if you so please. You can comment on me also. There’s very little I haven’t heard yet. I can take it.

This is the Logo I designed for Darkholme’s Paradise:

Building Simplicity - 11/11/2008

Posted by Natiq Jalil on Sunday, June 12, 2011, In : Retro blogs 
I am sometimes asked how I do what I do. This isn't a question easily answered in words. So I thought that I might share a little bit of the madness with you. This is how I went about completing the poster art for Simplicity, one of the main characters for 'Full Circle.' I used photoshop CS3 and a WACOM Graphire (which I am sure wants a break after dealing with me so often). This piece took me about 14 hours total to complete. Hopefully, the results are worth the time. Please feel free to tel...

Full Circle... so it begins (Excerpt) - 11/10/2008

Posted by Natiq Jalil on Sunday, June 12, 2011, In : Retro blogs 


 ***This is just an excerpt from the original blog post, so long ago. I would post the whole thing, but I learned some valuable lessons since then... the main one is, people who are not artists don't understand artists. And when we write about things that affect or inspired our art, our words can be taken personally in ways that just don't make any sense to us. So please forgive... I'm skipping the personal part of the blog so I don't have to have a long conversation about it later. I hope yo...

Taking Myself Seriously - 08/02/2008

Posted by Natiq Jalil on Sunday, June 12, 2011, In : Retro blogs 

I recently came to the morbid realization that from the moment of my birth, I began to die. Having that thought didn't really make me sad or anything, but it did put some things into perspective.

Thus armed with a new epiphany, I decided I was going to take myself a little more seriously... which basically means, I'm going to work harder on making my dream come true. In the end, I want to leave something behind so that the world knows that I was here... not that this fact is a big deal or anyt...
