Martin Luther King Day – January 19, 2015

Some quotes for the Occasion:

 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

        Dr. King was stabbed in the chest with a letter opener at a book signing.  He was punched in the face. He was hit in the head with a brick. He was hit in the neck with rocks. His home was bombed.  Yet he never fought fire with fire. He didn’t even press charges against those who chose to use violence against him. He was more concerned with their healing as human beings. He even attempted engaging the attackers in conversation.

…“[I] had to stand so often amid the chilly winds of adversity, staggered by the jostling winds of persecution” – and had gone “to my bed many nights scared to death.”

        When fighting for what he truly believed in (i.e. correlating the war in Vietnam with the internal affairs and injustices of the American population) he was attacked by people who were previously supporters of his cause.

“The job ahead is too great, and the days are too bright to be bickering in the darkness of jealousy, deadening competition, and internal ego struggles”. (to Jackie Robinson).

        As humans we may all have some desire for fame.

“The price one has to pay in public life is that of being misquoted, misrepresented, and misunderstood. I have tried to condition myself to this inevitable situation.”

 

 “There is nothing to be afraid of if you believe and know that the cause for which you stand is right… You are ready to face anything and you face it with a humble smile on your face, because you know that all of eternity stands with you and the angels stand beside you and you know that you are right.”

Faith can give us the courage to meet the uncertainties of the future.”

I've always enjoyed drawing. As a young child, I was always fascinated when I witnessed others drawing. Most notably my pops, and my half brother (whom I've only seen a handful of times).
I was an art student throughout high school. Now I am a student of architecture, horticulture, and music.
I teach guitar and other artsy things.
I enjoy Urban sketching, People Sketching, and other forms of art.
I'm interested in Children's books, and learning to tell stories using pictures.
I've also become interested in caricature.

My most important goal as an artist is to live a life that reflects eternal happiness.
