"Faith, brother, not in the gods but in yourself."
- Charles Bukowski
The sun is setting. Having a smoke break.
Unfortunately, the bad habit has kicked in again since this painting started.
Giving me some much needed calmness through this storm.

I’ll wrap up my bones and leave themout of this home, out on the road.
Two feet standing on a principle.Two hands longing for each others warmth.Cold smoke seeping out of colder throats.Darkness falling, leaves nowhere to go.
It’s spiraling down,biting words like a wolf howling.

I’ll wrap up my bones and leave them
out of this home, out on the road.

Two feet standing on a principle.
Two hands longing for each others warmth.
Cold smoke seeping out of colder throats.
Darkness falling, leaves nowhere to go.

It’s spiraling down,
biting words like a wolf howling.

These are the only photos I have of drawings I did when I was 16. I can’t remember if I still have the originals though. Ah, bitter sweet memories.

unebellediablo said: Nice artwork! When did you start drawing?

Thank you!

I’ve always enjoyed drawing for fun and at the age of 16 I felt that drawing was something I could learn to try to be really good at. So, I just kept on drawing ever since until it became a part of me. I am still learning along the way even ‘til now at 27.

There are many things I’m uncertain about in this life but making art is the only thing I am certain of.

I like to document my progress to see how far I have to go and to fix any mistakes. It’s also a good way to track any improvement as years roll along. Thank you for checking out my work!
