So I’ve started several blog posts in the past few weeks that I haven’t been able to finish because of time.
Waaa. (Poor me. Somebody call a Waaambulance)
The first post was for my Step-Father-Figure’s 70th Bday! From here on out I shall refer to him as Victory 2010.
That guy is a riot to have around. I could sit there and listen to him talk all day. He is the red-neck to my mothers yogurt-hippie. He might be from Tiny-Town, Texas, but that guy has an interest in ALL THE THINGS.
My favorite is hearing The Discovery Channel as narrated by Victory 2010.
Happy Birthday Victory 2010!!
A couple weeks back I was having a reflective moment where I looked at some other blogs, like Leauxra’s (her tablet drawings blow my mind!), and Gweenbrick’s (his life in the most genuinely ironic that I’ve ever seen. He should be discussing poetry with mental giants instead of wiping the poop from grown bottoms in an institution.)
I wanted to DRAW SOMETHING REAL. SAY SOMETHING REAL.
I was thinking about Africa. The sunsets right on the beach by our cottage.
I was remembering the first day I took a long walk on the southern tip of a continent where I knew not a single person.
I was walking in a land where places like Darfur happen. Somalia. Rwanda. The Congo.
Then I thought even further back to Chicago…..
Aaaaaannnnnd thats where I discovered a whole new set of brushes in my drawing program.
Sorry. I go downhill real fast.
In other news, I painted some acorns.
Don’t take this nut-display lightly.
It was a mixed martial arts fight just trying to get them back into the house.
And thats all I have. Good night.
