Good Friday
It’s been a awhile since I did my version of Alice and white rabbit spoof from last years. For my friends who know about these two..the black rabbit’s name is FRIDAY.
My white rabbit is a black one who has history of violence and warfare.
Poor kid. Friday is only a teenager but has had to fight his whole life.

this is an early work I did of Friday in his berserk mode. This terrifies Alice as she tries to brave his wrath by attempting to snap him out of it.
Friday considers himself a horrible person because he is made to fight to the death. He often tries to push Alice away at the same time cling to her.
As his best friend Alice is not going to lose Friday to his torment without a fight.

Today is Good Friday. Happy Easter. The day Jesus died on the cross in the midst of the darkest hour of the day.

Tennessee Passes Mind-Boggling Ban On Rapid Bus Transit | Wired 
Tennessee lawmakers overwhelmingly voted in favor a bill that bans the construction of bus rapid transit (BRT) anywhere in the state.
The impetus for the vote was a proposal to build a $174 million BRT system in Nashville called The Amp, which would’ve ran on a 7.1 mile route and served rapidly growing neighborhoods across the city. There’s a more detailed summary of the project over at The Tennessean.
Although BRT has been shown to revitalize economies and reduce congestion, opponents of The Amp voiced concerns about the safety of unloading bus passengers along roadways and whether private land would be used to build dedicated bus lanes.
After the vote, Amp opponents revealed that the conservative group Americans for Prosperity, founded with the support of brothers Charles and David Koch, had lobbied in favor of the bus ban.
The legislation is startlingly specific: Senate Bill 2243 forbids “constructing, maintaining or operating any bus rapid transit system.”
The Senate version of the BRT ban also forbids buses from “loading or discharging passengers at any point within the boundary lines of a state highway or state highway right-of-way not adjacent to the right-hand, lateral curb line.” Though the House struck that provision and sent revised legislation back to the Senate, it would still require special approval from the Tennessee Department of Transportation and local government bodies.
It’s a hard line, and an unusual one.
Normally, the easiest way to kill a public transit project is to pull its funding. Alabama, Arizona, Hawaii and Utah all forbid state funding for public transit systems, for instance, but even that isn’t foolproof: Utah’s taken on some major commuter rail expansions lately, and Phoenix uses county tax revenues to pay for its transit system.
Voters in Arlington, TX famously voted against public transit funding for decades, and an acrimonious debate in Cincinnati almost derailed a streetcar project, but both those cities now have service.
A formal ban on BRT is about the only way that Tennessee could ensure that The Amp didn’t get built as intended. Already, the project seems to be watered down. Nashville’s mayor—a proponent of the project—has ordered a study that would redesign the system to avoid using dedicated lanes (PDF).
Now, drivers in Nashville can look forward to increased traffic and longer commutes. But at least those pesky buses won’t be in the way.

Good thing I got my happy black ass out of that state.

Art tips:

robotsandfrippary:

Just draw the damn hands.  Stop ending them at stumps at the wrist. Stop hiding them behind someone’s back.  Draw them.  Yeah, you’re probably bad at them, guess what? Everyone is.  And you’re not going to get better by not drawing them.

So draw the damn hands.

My characters can’t testify in church without dem praiz handz! LOL

Carry On

Louie the White Lion makes his appearance once more. The happy-go-lucky British feline epitomizes an optimistic but naive attitude towards the perils of living in the real world. 

Be that as it may, I think we all have a Louie in our lives who is always there to tell us to smile in the midst of sorrow, even when we have nothing left.

I have been drawing less and less lately and I know that. But I really had to force myself with this sketch. I wanted to believe in myself to know how far God has led me to the present.

I have a Master’s degree in Music Performance for god’s sake. I never thought I would have it.

I know the job market is tough for us musicians and artists, but I can’t give up now.

I know something is out there for me. I just have to believe it.

And Louie is going to help me, and you, and everyone else out there looking at this tumblr post.

Don’t give up! Because I wont.

If you practice all the time and master your instrument then call yourself a great instrumentalist…a great pianist, a great violinist, a great bassoonist, a great cellist, etc.

And if you learn how to phrase musically, and understand the musical structure and grammar of music and so forth, you call yourself a musician.

But until that person out there listening gets some kind of goose bumps one way or the other, through joy or sorrow or what have you, then don’t call yourself an artist.

We have the power to move people and this should be the goal and not how many fast notes could we play per square inch or square measure.

Also, never forget that we are all students for life. I am constantly learning still and no matter what you do, the learning and growing will never stop, and whether you are 8, 18 or age 88, we are students for life.

This applies to all of my artist friends, as well.

So let me tell you about the shittiest parent on the motherfucking planet.

I work at a grocery store and this man comes in with his 11 year old son. He buys a pack a cigarettes and a two cases of beer. The son was holding a two dollar drawing pad and placed it on the belt and I guess the dad didn’t notice it at first but when I was about to scan the pad he asked where’d it have come from and turned towards the kid and asked “Did you put that shit up there?”. He told me to put it back and then told his 11 year old child that he “ain’t paying for that gay ass notebook.”.  So I looked at the kid, who was close to tears and saying how he ran out of paper at home and my heart broke. So I gave the pad to him, for free, and told the dad I would take care of it. I gave the kid some tokens for a game outside and said I would look forward to buying some of his drawings and paintings when he’s all famous. He kids face was so priceless and I thought everything was good. But then, about 10 ten minutes after giving the kid his notebook, I walked outside and saw this. The drawing pad all ripped up and tossed on the pavement. I could only imagine what happened in the parking lot, but I know that that poor kid heart is fucking ripped apart, just like this pad.

I’m fucking horrified that there are parents like this, who, just because it’s not masculine or gender specificthey won’t let their children follow their true passions or explore interests that lead to their happiness. Even more so, I’m horrified that parents don’t care about the fine arts anymore because it doesn’t have job security. Since when did it ever matter to a child if their passion makes them money or not? Parenting is about supporting whatever makes your child happy. Have some fucking consideration for your child’s wants not your homophobic and anti-art ideals.
