The Simplicity Of Black And White Art

Inspiration

Creativity isn’t static. It’s constantly evolving just as we are. Creativity is the one thing that separates us from all other living things.

It’s our purpose. Everything came from an idea. A creative spark. When I draw, I rarely add color to my designs. There is a purity to black and white. The monochrome has a power. Regardless of how intricate a design becomes, there is simplicity. That is what I’m searching for and aim to create.

Poetry For Sunday: The Year It Was

Poetry
An escape from reality.
Obscure and obscene beliefs,
mainstream fodder. 
The year it was. 
I rubbed my forehead in disbelief.
The world immersed in a bad sinus infection. 
Alas, hope abounds. 
What rubbish and disgust bring,
spurns courage and unity.
The year it was.
Hope. New faces.
Peace and happiness on the horizon.
New beginnings. 
A new chapter 365 pages long. 
The year it will be.
