I find that drawing people having a good time usually lifts my mood. And 15-minute no-erase drawing exercises always get my mind out of a funk.

So here’s a young #Yoruba girl smiling as she enjoys some music. As I’m drawing her lips I’m smiling too. 😀

Life goes on, whether we want it to or not. Might as well smile as we go through it.

PS: Mort Drucker was a big influence on my drawing style when I was growing up. I think I inadvertently channeled him here a little.

I lost a friend...no, more like a sister, to cancer yesterday.  And now I'm back at work handling issues that seemed important 24 hours ago, but seem insignificant now.  I'm Mr. Senior Project Manager here at work when inside all I really want to do is cry.

Cancer does not knock.  Cancer does not ask permission. It kicks the door in, sits in your seat and makes itself at home.

I hate cancer.

This piece is titled "If Cancer Had a Face". Those aren't eyes in its head, they are mirrors. My depiction of cancer has MANY faces and we pray that our face is never reflected in any of the mirrors.

I am trying to show the utter disregard #cancer has for the forces against it.  It is wearing symbols that we use to celebrate our "strength" as we "fight" it.  It is tattooed and adorned with various cultural symbols of life.
I have made it horrible so as to explain the guilty relief one feels when it has finally had its way or even guiltier relief when it passes by to another. The posture shows the anarchy, power, offensiveness and violence of the disease.
