Starting work on some Abe drawings. I have some ideas I’d like to experiment with that I’m kind of excited for

Once you get this you have to say 5 nice things about yourself publicly and then send it to 10 of your favorite followers. Thinking good thoughts about yourself is hard but it will make you feel better so give it a go, for the sake of spreading positivity!

I almost just ignored this, but because you were the one who asked me…

1) I am quiet. 

In a world with so much noise, where everyone is trying to be heard and no one seems to be listening, being quiet is something I feel is vastly underrated. Being quiet allows me to listen and to learn, and although my words may be rare, I know when and how to use them, and that makes them all the more important. 

2) I am observant. 

This may somewhat go along with being quiet, but being observant is important in its own right. The world is a busy place and sometimes it can seem an impossible thing to keep up with, but that is no reason to hide yourself away. Also, you don’t need to go on some exotic adventure to see something new. Everyday is exciting. Listen to people’s voices, watch the way they move and interact with others, feel the wind as it moves across your skin, smell the rain as it starts to fall. Be present. (This may have turned into a bit of a tangent)

3) I care. 

I don’t like to ask people how they are doing if I don’t have time to talk. It’s not that I’m being anti-social, it’s just that I hate the superficial answers of “good” and “fine”. If I ask someone how they are doing it’s because I legitimately care and want to know the answer.

4) I am intelligent.

I downplay my intelligence a lot because it bothers me to the point of anger when I see people try to use some stupid facts or elevated vocabulary to exclude or degrade someone else, but when it comes down to it, I’m a smart guy. I have a genuine hunger for knowledge. I want to know things purely because there are things to be known. Looking at some of the students at my school it seems as though they see thinking as a chore; something they begrudgingly have to do occasionally in order to reach some goal or destination. I love to think. The act of discovery and exploration brought about by mere thoughts is pure bliss.

5) I am determined.

I get rather down on myself, and often describe myself as a lazy individual who really has no goals in life and will never accomplish anything of importance. I know that’s not the case though. I have a life in mind that I will fight my way, tooth and nail, to get to, and I won’t stop even when I reach that destination. I want to keep imagining, keep creating, keep growing and changing into the person I know I want to be. 

p.s. Thank you for asking me to do this, it feels nice : )

Photo 17 Apr 1 note Took such a long time to finish, but I’m super pleased with the final result. Playing around with the texture and lighting on the cello and her shirt was challenging, but also a lot of fun.

Text 19 Mar 1 note Under Many Skies (A Story in the Style of Chris Marker’s Sans Soleil)

            Azure waves swept gently over the shore. These weren’t the pounding, forceful waves of home. These waves, like most things here, lacked a certain hardness that comes with the modernity of western life. I remember the village of Gokarna, the way it was growing awkwardly and uncomfortably into a town. It is in this sense an adolescent, unsure of itself in the modern world, but in every other sense Gokarna is old, with a history that stretches into the remotest parts of human memory. For most of this time, it has been a village of fishermen and farmers with a single distinction: a temple that is believed to contain the soul of Shiva.
