Don't get me wrong... I moved 3 and a half years ago, but I left my workshop. The paints, pencils, artwork... everything frozen in time. But there have been problems.

The other day I was kicked from a group on Facebook. Why? My drawing is too realistic. I kid you not. My drawing had to be a cheat... Why is that? And why do I face this all my life? I reach for the stars but all I end up with is dust... Maybe I… Continue reading Kicked
