"Where were you born?"
"On a battlefield," he answered.
"No, no. In what state were you born?"
"In a state of innocence."
Joseph Heller (Catch-22)
I fell in love with this novel the moment Yossarian fell in love with the chaplain. Which is to say, from the very first line of the very first chapter…

And this is why people should pay me money to make games. The end.

I thought about taking a picture of my burn wound ‘cause I know how much you like ladies with burn scars, but it’s on my elbow and I couldn’t get a picture and now it’s mostly healed. :(
That’s the saddest story I’ve ever heard :(. I bet it was super sweet though!

I’m going through the same thoughts with my art, too… Vulnerability…bros? ;_;
Fuck yeah, we’re vulnerability bros. Let’s take swelfies of ourselves at the gym tomorrow and talk about our feelings~.

On the way home, L and I were talking about how awesome this was and how you have a knack for making things look cool and meaningful.
Haha, I dunno about cool and meaningful, but I did draw this with the intention of being emotionally sincere rather than dissembling with my usual preemptive snark.
I’ve actually been thinking a lot lately about why I create and what I want to accomplish from it. And I’ve mostly decided it’s not about anticipating or fulfilling the expectations of others (or my own expectations of how others should react), but about being unflinchingly honest and open about who and what I am.
These are my pieces — do with them what you will. So for better or worse, that’s the reason pain, vulnerability and love are inextricably linked in my mind…
