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

Well now you got my attention!!


if he is the new superman it’ll be some fuckshit right? manchild will probably try to throw his hat in writing some of the plot and it’ll be some random coming to age story where manchild doesn’t want to accept his gifts as superman….so it’ll take his extra whole white milk ass lois lane to encourage him to be better and give him all his essential vitamins for great bone health or watever…sometime after…shit gets real for her and she has to be saved….dun dun dunnnn here comes superman here to save his favorite brand of milk from being spoiled at the hands of some evil doer.

i’m just talking shit…it’ll be cool to have a black superman and have his ass get back on that killmonger diet. but i hope he grows his hair out because i do not like him with a haircut no mo. *ignore me*

Like Raindrops On My Window - 12/02/2009

June 13, 2011
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 the slow motion serenity of silver lights glittering in the frigid night air and let myself believe for a tiniest instant that time has slowed down,

and this moment is mine...

...made exclusively for me.

This is coming. But for now, I'm enjoying the last of the rains. 

So as I was looking at this photo my sister took of a window in my old apartment, decorated with lime candles and potpourri, I was inspired to paint. Though this piece is a digital painting, I feel the way I do when I paint with traditional media. I felt really good. I hope that my feeling come across in this piece. I hope that those who see it catch some of the intense serenity I felt as I laid down these brush strokes.

Candles At My Window
I just finished this piece a few hours ago. I started it some time ago but it took awhile for me to feel motivated to go in and finish it. It seems that the inspiration I felt with the painting of my window has continued. And so I will ride this wave of inspiration for al it is worth... until there is nothing left of it.

Listlessly Restless


That's all for now. Let me know what you think.

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

June 13, 2011
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

June 13, 2011

  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

June 12, 2011
***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:
