Today, I want you to really live.

Yesterday, on my day off, I drew this. Its pencil, Prismacolor markers, and ink on bristol board. I had kind of a crappy day yesterday. Money problems (my main food for the past week has been potatoes) just won't go away. But, I just need to remember that life is meant to be lived. And that is what I intend to do. No matter what happens, I will live. I will deal with it and come out alive.

Today, I also intend to smile.


  1. One of my favorite 'live' quotes is by Oscar Wilde - “To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
    I like to think of it as my motto.

    Your drawing embodies that - and next time you are in STarbucks - go ahead and DANCE!!!!!


  2. Money problems suck, I'm glad you can see past them. And I hope things get better for you.

  3. There's a saying something like, if you can't change things, change the way you think about them. It really does help! I love your drawing. How can you not smile when you look at that?

  4. what a great thing "I want you to really live". And I so needed that.

    You've got such artistic talent. I wish I could do that!
