DEATH MASK dOOdle

And now on to this Sunday's religious material...



"To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent."


"The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time."


"From my rotting body, flowers shall grow and I am in them and that is eternity."

Rose Period Ajna Chakra dOOdles

My doodling as of late went into a Rose Period where I've been doodling on colored paper with a plain blue gel pen.  These drawings serve as mind flexes- meditations really.  Usually while I'm tied up on the phone or between odd tasks throughout the day, I'll throw a few lines down on each miniature work of art (which usually takes course over one or two days.)  I always start with some loose and gestural pen strokes and then tighten up what I see from there, hatching and lining away here and there.  The few pieces of red paper I found to dissect have proven to be impossible to scan correctly for some reason.  Everything comes out in shades of magenta and fuchsia.  The paper in reality is a deep red. These two third eye dOOdles came about over the past few weeks...

Do You Care? PROVE IT!!!

(inks on bristol / 2006)
Early this morning I signed a petition at MoveOn.org for Manna Cafe Ministries to be allowed to open their homeless shelter in Clarksville.  Currently the founder, Kenny York is partaking in a bit of noble activism to bring attention to the issue of homelessness here in my home town.  Kenny is just a few long days into the two weeks he'll spend on the streets living homeless in his efforts to provide help to those in need of shelter.  Having been homeless himself, he knows just what types of real world problems bring people to such dire straits (and it's not because they won't get a job.)  When you see the guy on the corner this weekend asking, "DO YOU CARE?" give him a honk, a wave and a donation (which will go to Manna Cafe.)
