Some days I am calm
Some days I am patient
Some days I am the bridge
between pain and understanding.
But right now I have no patience
as you confidently carry your privilege
spewing hateful words that you don’t understand.
And I am not in the mood to be your bridge.
Let the long, cold, dangerous swim begin.
You are on your own - oh confident one
trudging unknown waters
unassisted for the first time.

On Uncanney Valley, its first album since 2001, The Dismemberment Plan sounds loose and liberated — like a band with its legacy secured, happy just to be there. It’s a fitting way for the hard-to-define, intermittently funky D.C. rock group to make a comeback.

Found this commission while sorting through art files… I don’t think I posted it because it was a rushed christmas job.

I get into spurts of neglecting this project, but I’m getting back into taking care of it. Check it out if you feel so inclined.

You guys! My dear friend Haley is trying to raise money to create a more sustainable food program for the Beloved Daughters of Maasai - a group of amazing girls she worked with in Kenya. There are only a few hours left so please join me in helping to feed these ladies!

…only $300 shy of of her goal & 4 hours to go. Every little bit counts! :)

Just read Theo Ellsworth’s, “The Understanding Monster - Book One”
His work makes my belly happy, if that makes any sense. Sweet, timid & understanding characters, dizzying movement, beautiful illustration & silliness. I thoroughly recommend looking into all of his creations!

Their words are full and fair
and they slip by me.

A feeling -
full, still, sweet.
Echoes and lips smacking.

The whirr of your voice
calling out for hungry ears
to listen, listen, listen
to nothing.

me too. 
Just the plain blue
beautiful blank bliss.

I sink into myself again.
